***The restaurant has since closed down.
Fancy eating delicious and tasty food? Then head over to Tasty Restaurant for fantastic roast meat – siu mei (??). This clean shoplot situated along Anson Road is right beside the coffeeshop selling the famous duck meat koay teow th’ng.
The chef cum owner who run this place has over 10 years of experience, hails from Ipoh. He also prepares other various dishes of savoury dumplings, Siu Lon Pau and porridge. Additional dishes are added to the menu on Sunday.
Our orders were pei pah arp, siew yok and siew pai kut (roast spare ribs). All the roast meat are tender, juicy and succulent. The minimum order for the pei pah arp is a quarter portion. This is reasonable unlike other stalls
that only sells minimum of half a duck.
The three layer siew yok with crispy skin.
The roast spare ribs (which are rarely sold in Penang) were very tasty and tender enough to be removed from the bone easily. We had the dried noodle which is very springy and tasted good with bit of oil (pork lard) and sauce.
A bamboo basket of steaming hot Siu Lon Pau is best eaten with strips of ginger dipped in vinegar. You get to eat it here at a fraction of a price compare to some outlets.
Highly recommended is this refreshing cold dessert – Iced Mango Sago. The mango is blended with crushed ice and served with chunky pieces of mango and generous amount of sago. The sweetness was just right. There are also other desserts of soya bean and yee mai foo chok.
This is an ideal place to be for those who wishes to have a full meal, snack or just a dessert. Surprisingly this outlet is Wifi enabled. Glad to have found this place and definitely will drop by for more.
