A Saturday lunch was at Ang Hoay Loh which occupied the corner garden space of the State Chinese (Penang) Association in Perak Road. This restaurant is an icon for some of Penang’s most authentic cuisines. I was recommended to try out their specialty Hokkien dishes by my reader, Sky in my earlier post at Sin Lean Heang (another Hokkien restaurant) located in Goh Tiau Lor.
First on the menu was the Fried oyster mee includes ingredients of pork, prawns and vegetable. The mee is fried till damp with some gravy and it tasted good with the sweetness from the plentiful ingredients. Just leave the mee to sit for a while to soak up the gravy and you will get a plate of heavenly mee. Highly recommended!
Next came the Fried Tang Hoon, topped with prawns and sotong rings. This noodle is fried with much wok hei, very flavorful taken with sambal. You could just see the beautiful QQ texture of the strands of Tang Hoon, as its being lifted in the 2nd picture.
We could never leave out their signature dish, Bak Kee Soup – pieces of meat that are deep fried after being coated with cornstarch and cooked in a starchy soup with cabbage. I would definitely recommend this dish, as it is very much worth a try. Flavorful indeed and the meat are tender as well.
Last but not least, some vegetables to round up our meal. We had the Tau Kua stir fried with big size prawns and leeks (suan nah). What made this dish special was the tau kua, it was made with five-spice powder, lending extra taste to the dish!
There are also plenty of other dishes to choose from its extensive menu. Among them, are the Oh Chien (oyster omelet), Steamed Fish and Prawn Fritters as well. Prices have remained reasonable throughout the decades, making this place a regular for my family. Look out for this restaurant which is right across the Army Camp. Click here for the Map Location.
