Sin Kheng Aun Hainanese Restaurant Revisit

Sin Kheng Aun Restaurant situated in Chulia Lane is one of the prominent Hainanese restaurants in Penang. This restaurant is very popular with the locals and tourists for its Hainanese food and also local dishes. Specialist of this restaurant includes the Curry Gulai Tumis, Kerabu Prawns, Hainanese Pork/Chicken Chop and many other selections of dishes.

My family have tried most of the dishes here as we have patronized this restaurant countless of time over the years. Their unique Haninese Pork Chop is a favorite and comes deep fried with an egg coating and paired with onions, peas and quarters of fried potatoes. The meat has a crispy exterior and goes well with the slightly thick delicious gravy.

We had Curry Gulai Tumis, one of their famous specialties which is known for its tasty gravy. They served this curry dish with the expensive promfret fish (tau tei). There are many version of curry tumis in town but I still find this among one of the best. The curry is sourish, with a good hint of belacan which gives that extra kick. We usually opt to have it with blanched beehoon rather than rice…do give it a try. This dish is always a must have for us.
