Nice Chinese Food At Teksen Restaurant, Penang

Teksen, Teik Seng or Tek Seng Restaurant at Carnavon Street (Lebuh Carnvaon), I believe they have got good local Chinese food! It’s because that I am the restaurant visitor for the past 10 years. That’s right, I went there to eat since when I was really young where it was on the other outlet. It is now located in a nice shop houses, nicely decorated too!

To me, instead of calling Teksen Restaurant, I prefer to call it Teochew Lang (People of Teochew) as the boss who is also the chef is a Teochew people.

During the recently visit, I brought my camera along and so I snapped some shots to share with you a few dishes of our little lunch. It was a Friday afternoon and I was craving for Teochew Lang’s food, then I went there with my parents.

Looking at the interiors, it’s a semi-open restaurant with a blends of heritage and modern design. The steel tables and chairs bring back the memories to the olden times. It was about 1pm and you can see many people was having their meal there, in fact the restaurant was full with no empty tables.

I guess we took the last table right outside the restaurant. Although the weather was pretty hot that day, we still sit outside because the food was so tempting.

We ordered 3 dishes and a soup. Simple dishes yet delicious. The Chinese steam egg with century and salted egg is our all time favourite.

Here comes the soup which I don’t really know how to call in English, but in the Hokkien dialect, it’s Sok Tei Thng or in Mandarin is Shu Di Tang (熟地汤). It’s Chinese soup cook with pork and Chinese Foxglove. Very healthy and yummy.

We ordered a kangkung fried balachan too for our vegetable dishes. Pretty good with 3 big prawns in it, not very spicy, just nice and it’s good to eat.

No idea what is this right? It’s actually fried roasted pork. It’s the best dish to me in here. It’s roasted pork fried with garlic, black soy sauce and some chili and it tasted sweet. I can have two bowl of rice with just dish. Yum yum.
