Wow, Asia Cafe in Penang? That’s a surprise for me, I didn’t know there’s one in Penang (actual location – Bukit Bendera, just beside the roundabout in front of KongMin school) until I was on my way back from Kek Lok Si last week. If you don’t know yet, there is a huge food court n SS15, Subang Jaya which is also called Asia Cafe. It is a good place to hang out for its nice environment, and there’s lots of food to order from! Anyway, my guess is that Penang’s Asia Cafe is the copycat version, as the design of the food court looks similar too.
Fried oyster noodle is a more common dish in Penang island, in fact I only got to know this noodle from my colleague. Oyster noodle is usually more available in restaurants but lucky for me it is sold here too. It costed RM3.50, quite reasonable for me because it tasted quite good.
Wantan noodle is pretty normal stuff.. a bit too dry actually.
I ordered an additional bowl of wantan soup which costed RM2.50. The soup was really tasty but the wantan itself was not that great, too saltish IMO. So this food court is definitely not comparable with the one in SS15 lah. Environment and food wise, all lose by a mile.. All selling Penang hawker food only, not special at all. Asia Cafe in SS15 really lives up to its name because you can find food from Vietnam, Korea, Hong Kong. Many choices for Portugese grilled seafood too! Arrgh I feel like going there now!
