Loh Bak, with its multitude of choices, is a favorite snack any time of the day. Most of the Loh Bak stalls have more or less the usual items of prawn fritters, pork roll, deep-fried bean curd, century egg, fish fillet and deep fried spring roll.

Whenever I’m in the area of Bayan Baru, I frequently visit the Loh Bak stall at BB Food Court. The stall has a few delicious twist in addition to the usual items!

Plate stacked high with plenty of variety…!

So what makes this Loh Bak so special?

Firstly, the special Loh Bak items they serve!

Two of the things that I really enjoyed and recommend is the deep-fried meat and the other distinguished boiled pork roll (guang chang 罐肠). The pork roll is home made, using pork and fats mixed with some seasonings with an interesting mild flavor. The sliced pork roll is served as cold cuts and is less oily. Having it together with the pickled white radish was just heavenly.

The deep-fried piece of pork meat in a strip form is made well with a good layer of lean and fat meat. The meat was well seasoned and pre-fried with a browned outer crisp, delicious eaten with or without the sauce.

Secondly, their appetizing pickled white radish!

The Loh Bak is served with its usual condiments of chili sauce, starchy “lor” sauce… but on top of that there is also the great accompaniment of pickled white radish (white carrot)! Most of the Loh Bak stalls that I had patronized around town do not serve this seasoned radish.

The pickle radish has a crunchy texture and is pleasantly addictive! I love its flavor and the taste, lending a sour yet sweet sensation to the Loh Bak.

Thirdly, their delicious dipping sauces!

My personal choice is to always mix the two sauces together, creating an effect similar to yin and yang! Dipping the piping hot Loh Bak into this sauce is absolutely scrumptious! It has a slight hint of five spice powder.

Wow! Loh Bak is one of my favourite! But, it is hard to find some really good loh bak nowadays! Glad you mentioned it here.

The lorbak looks tempting. Good that you post it here.

June 9th, 2010 at 2:24 pm

This is where we frequent for good lor bak. I heard this laksa is good too. :)

June 9th, 2010 at 11:03 pm

great post. that is a great looking meal. I like the yin and yang anology of the fresh cuke and pickled radish to offset the hot deepfried proteins and hot sauce. also agree and eat the same loh bak similarly.
I love loh bak.. havent had any good ones in so many years. The pics suggest that they do everthing well. Seems like a very solid Loh bak shop. Would love to visit this stall the next time I am in Penang.

June 10th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

My personal favourite so far is the one at Kheng Pin on Penang Road. Perfect, I’d say.

June 11th, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Used to eat a lot at this place but stopped doing that after seeing the coffee shop owner playing with his false teeth in his mouth and then delivering drinks without washing his hands…..yuuuuccckkkkssssss!!

Even if the food is tasty…it’s one of the most unhygienic places to eat.

I think you should give a rating to all the food places on different parameters…like food, cost, ambiance, cleanliness etc.

My favourite is the one at Lorong Selamat(famous char koay teow)
