A few weeks ago on 8tv’s HoChak program, they introduced a [tag]dim sum[/tag] [tag]restaurant[/tag] in [tag]Penang[/tag]. I didn’t watch that episode but according to my sister the dim sum shown was really good. Anyway [tag]Tho Yuen[/tag] was the restaurant being featured and it’s located in [tag]Campbell Street[/tag]. Another restaurant, Tai Tong which is also famous for dim sum is just a few steps away in Cintra Street.
I finally found the place after driving aimlessly around Penang Road for an hour. And because I started going there quite late in the morning, it was already noon when I reached the restaurant. Needless to say, the dim sum was already finished.
So we settled for the [tag]chicken rice[/tag] and a basket (steel?) of dim sum. The chicken rice tasted not bad, but I can think of many places that are nicer. The best thing is the chicken soup, which was really delicious. I wonder if they put any MSG lol.
This is the only dim sum left that noon. Next time I gotta be early.. planning to go during this weekend! Anyone wants to tag along? lol
