Starview Restaurant which has been around for years is located right in the busy junction of Burma Road and Jalan Telekom. Well, most Penangites will know it as the “every night also packed restaurant”. Its quite phenomenal actually, other restaurants in Penang have come around and gone but Starview has survived the decades strongly.
Since it is usually packed at night, we decided to give it a shot during lunch time. Fortunately for us, we manage to get a table as well as a carpark. Its been a while since we had a meal there, so we were unsure about their signature dishes.
The captain recommended the fish hotpot (Hu Lor) and my son was eager to give it a try. The hotpot of soup comes with pieces of fried fish and tofu. Two plates of freshly prepared raw fish slices comes with generous servings of vegetables.
This is the delicious and tasty hot bowl of fish soup.
We had the hotpot together with two other dishes…..Steamed Chicken with oyster sauce and the very appetising dish of Brinjal with ‘sambal hei bee’ (chilli dried prawns).
Overall a nice and satisfying lunch….
