Precinct 10 in Tanjung Tokong, Penang has been getting increasingly happening with a steady stream of restaurants, cafes, and lounges. The newest addition is Corner Keng 角頭間, a cafe cum restaurant, and lounge.
The space next to the Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet offers a slightly unique Chinese restaurant experience with its Asian Fusion menu.
The interior with industrial elements give off a cool vibe. Its ceiling with custom-designed brackets and hooks have plants dangling down, creating an atmosphere of greens. Customers can choose to be seated in the air-conditioned dining area, or at the outdoor terrace under the shade of umbrellas.
The menu has a little of something for everyone – deep-fried snacks, desserts, noodles, soup, and dishes with white rice. A bowl of old cucumber spare ribs soup sets the right tone for the meal followed with salted fish chicken fried rice, and steamed hor fun with fish fillet in homemade sauce.
Old cucumber spare ribs soup RM12. 80
Salted fish chicken fried rice RM13.80
Steamed hor fun with fish fillet RM15.80
For snacks, there are 11 types to choose from, and what would be better than a plate of deep-fried belacan chicken wings? They are crunchy and savory enough to eat on their own (forget about the accompanying sauce). They are a little bit addictive, so you might want to double the portion.

On a second visit, we had an array of dishes with white rice – Kapitan chicken and herbal chicken. The Kapitan chicken featured generous chunks of chicken drumstick in a tasty and spicy fragrant gravy. It is hard not to be seduced by this popular Nyonya offering.

More than just a place for food and drinks, Corner Keng is also a drinking spot. Lean back and enjoy a blended martini, rum, brandy or fashionable cocktails with kick.
