Penang food quite Delights...

Since moving to Singapore 4 years ago, Jin and I have nearly given up hope of ever finding good Penang Fried Kuey Teow here. Singapore has its own version which neither of us has taken a liking to (soggy and sweet vs the Penang version which is dry and spicy). So when we read in last week's papers that there was a stall in Aljunied serving this, we happily arranged to have our Saturday brunch there.

Located at Aljunied Ave 2, Penang Delights is a small stall in Block 117. With the Strait Times review enlarged, laminated and proudly displayed outside the stall, there was already a short queue when we arrived at 10am. I stood in line and scanned the simple menu which consisted of 4 items - Penang Fried Kuey Teow (FKT), Penang Asam Laksa, Prawn Mee and Kon Low noodles. We went with the FKT and Asam Laksa.

The FKT looked promising with its 2 large prawns. It tasted close to the KL FKT - they got the texture right but the spiciness was missing. Nevertheless, it was one of the better FKT we have tried in Spore :). The Assam Laksa was also surprisingly good...definitely up yoKL standards and it was served with generous helpings of tuna. For $2.50 a dish, both came in a good sized portion to fill up a lunch stomach. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has never tasted Penang FKT and Assam Laksa...next, to come back to try the Prawn Mee (have never found this in Spore until now) and the kon low (dry) noodles.
