Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Kuih & Canteen – Tucked in a hidden alley, there lies a traditional nyonya kuih making kitchen. A deep tour pass the kitchen showcases an old school setting of tables and chairs that resemble a typical grandma’s kampung house. Greeted by two young and lovely owner of the ‘canteen’, we sat down by the air well away from the direct scorching sun ray. We picked this place instead of the inner air-conditioned dining hall to get myself closer to the wonderful architecture of a Penang’s shophouse.
People would hardly know about this place without a proper signage except introduction from friends. I’ve get to know about this through the newspaper and wallaaaaa, I was here for lunch. Nyonya kuih, Nasi Lemak & Asam Laksa were the food for 3 of us. Nasi Lemak was old school style as describe from my parents, just the authentic sweet fragrant nasi lemak compliment with spicy sambal, spiced shrimp and fish. Asam Laksa on the other hand had a very sweet and sour sensation which the thick laksa noodle was lovely to blend with the soup. Not much of a comment for the kuih as I am not a kuih lover, but they are similarly good.
Pricing was not cheaper than hawker centre, but reasonable to my wallet. Well, I’ve found a gem in town after a year of opening!
