Penang food at Simply Penang

We were out shopping at 1-Utama over the weekend and dropped by Simply Penang for dinner, partly because it’s been so long since I had Assam Laksa.

My order of the Assam Laksa came with the rice noodles topped with thick fish gravy, very much like the authentic ones in Penang. My quest for the Penang styled Assam Laksa has caused me to endure endless imitations, none of which were any good. I still haven’t found the best Penang Assam Laksa in KL, but I guess the one at Simply Penang is close enough.

We also ordered a Chicken Porridge for hubby who wanted something light. The porridge came topped with shredded chicken meat, ginger, salted duck egg and lightly drizzled with sesame oil. Hubby thought it needed a dash of soya sauce to liven it up a bit more.

For our kid, we ordered Fried Chicken with fries. She really liked the sweet chicken wings and proceeded to polish off everything. Guess it must be really good!

For drinks, we ordered the “Sar Lei Juice”. I liked the Sar Lei Juice at Simply Penang. It’s not the watered-down version I usually get at the coffeeshops. It sweet and tart at the same time. Really quite good!

Simply Penang is located at F237, 1st Floor, Promenade, One Utama Shopping Centre, 47800 Bandar Utama, Selangor. Tel : 03-77290026.

The laksa seems so yummy..especially with the thick fish gravy..Hope it beats my favourite one in Petaling Street.

I haven't tried the one in Petaling Street so I wouldn't know.
