Penang: Kampai 9.9 Taiwanese ‘Zhu Char’, E-Gate

Penang: Kampai 9.9 Taiwanese ‘Zhu Char’, E-Gate – Despite being tensed with the General Election 2013, while waiting for the result to be announced later, I think I shall write some food post to release some tension. =D Let’s head to Penang, for food!
So this place that I visited last weekend was Kampai, located at E-Gate, the place used to be Tao Japanese Cuisine. It’s quite a surprised to see the once very famous Tao is gone and replaced by Kampai. Later then, I just realised that Kampai is from the same person who runs Tao! That’s why.
Kampai is actually a Chinese restaurant, just like ‘zhu char’ (dai chao) restaurant but in a up-scale environment and atmosphere and selling mainly Taiwanese dishes, starting from RM9,9/dish. It’s quite interesting trying Taiwanese-style of ‘zhu char’ because all the while, Taiwanese food is just beef noodle, 3 cups noodle and deep fried chicken.
Fried Bittergourd with Salted Egg
Pork slices with garlic sauce together with toufu under the pork slices.
Sweet and sour pork which was rather hard to chew.
Ma Po Toufu which is quite standard, nothing fancy.
Well, actually the taste is quite good in my opinion, but my brother commented that it’s quite standard, taste like what he had in Singapore. The fried bittergourd with salted egg was good, the pork slices with garlic was good, but the sweet and sour pork andma po toufu was just not fancy enough. But after all, I kinda enjoyed my lunch at there.
