A few weeks ago on 8tv’s HoChak program, they introduced a dim sum restaurant in Penang. I didn’t watch that episode but according to my sister the dim sum shown was really good. Anyway Tho Yuen was the restaurant being featured and it’s located in Campbell Street. 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 chicken rice 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
