Peking Arp @ Midlands Court Restaurant, Penang

   Posted by: CK Lam   in uncategorized

The Midlands Court Restaurant located in One Stop Midlands is one of the popular chinese restaurant in Penang. Having dinner especially on a weekend can be quite difficult since it is a popular venue for wedding dinners.

The menu did not change much since our last visit and still offers a wide variety of dishes. We were recommended the Peking Duck and since it is quite rare that we eat it (especially for lunch), we all agreed.

Pieces of thin crispy skin is cut off from the duck and served on top of freshly deep fried prawn cracker. It is lay on a thin chinese pancake, garnish with carrot and cumber sticks with a dash of hoisin sauce.

We requested for the left over duck to be served as a dish itself. The pieces of meat is tender and tasted good with the cucumber pickles which is not too sour.

Fried rice with eggs, french beans and prawns with a sprinkle of small fish. The small fish enhances the taste of this dish.

Por choy soup with strips of chinese ham (fal tui). Chinese ham makes good soup stock.

This restaurant is pretty quiet during lunch hour with only a few tables being occupied. We get very attentive service. The restaurant is well kept and clean but I won’t say so for its exterior surroundings (the complex itself is not well maintained).

Little Inbox – Yea used to be quite famous and all, but with the complex falling out of sorts, they should consider moving somewhere else :(

Fei Fei – The duck skin was indeed crispy! However, have to agree with you that HK China have much better Peking duck, I guess we just have to be content with what we have :P

I must admit the Peking duck is one of the best in town. I use to have this quite a lot when I was working for my previous company. It was our regular restaurant which we took our customers for meals. Another good place for Peking duck is Zhonghua Restaurant which is by the side of Midlands Berjaya Hotel.
