On a Sunday evening, I went to dinner with one of my closest colleagues to Penang Seafood Restaurant as he was craving for good Assam Laksa.
It was my second visit to the restaurant. Located in the vicinity of Aljunied MRT Station, the restaurant was rather easy to find, even for a foreigner like me. It was already crowded at 6pm, and so we queued up a bit for a table.
My friend had his bowl of Penang Assam Laksa (槟成叻沙). Priced at $5.50 for a large serving, the Assam Laksa was possibly one of the best in Singapore, even my friend, who grew up in Penang, thought this Laksa was better than many stalls in Penang. I highly recommend this as a must-try for my readers!
Feeling extremely hungry and craving for rice dish on that day, I ordered a Marmite Chicken Rice (妈咪鸡饭). Priced at $5, the serving was generous and the dish was delicious! The Marmite-coated chicken was rich and sweet in taste, I enjoyed it a lot!
Other than the two mains, we also ordered dishes to share. The Salted Egg Sotong (咸蛋苏冬) was also one of my favourites in Penang Seafood Restaurant. Priced at $12 for a small serving, this Salted Egg Squid dish never fail to impress me. The outer layer was deep-fried to golden brown, slightly salty and crunchy with the fragrance of salted egg, whereas the squid maintained its freshness and juiciness inside.
In my previous visit, I tried the Assam Fish Head and it was incredibly delicious, a good choice to order when sharing with friends and family. Special thanks to Jefrey for recommending this restaurant to us, a taste from home is always warm and comforting.
