Old House Cafe....in Penang

Old House Cafe is another restaurant that serves Chinese Cuisine. If you had read the article by Ms. Helen Ong (The Star) then you would remember Mr. Tan of Bee Chin Heong. This is his restaurant. Home cooked fare is what is served here. Beautiful exterior and interior decor is what this Restaurant boasts. Of course, I'm not forgetting the food served here.



These tables and chairs are for sale. So if you take a fancy to them you can actually buy them.


The food served here is similar to other Chinese Restaurants that I've visited.
Here you can see fried pomfret served in tau yew (soy sauce). The way the fish dish is charged is quite unique. It is rm10 per person. So if there are two of you, you will be charged rm20 for the fish. 3 persons will mean rm30 for a dish.

This is the dish that I visit this restaurant for. The 'too kar chor' (pig's trotter in sweet vinegar). I don't think there is anywhere else in Penang that you can find this dish. The pig's trotters are nicely stewed, very tender. They flake off the bones easily but still have the juice in the meat. My..., Mr. Tan sure do use a good type of sweet vinegar. If you think your confinement lady cooks this 'too kar chor' good, try Old House Cafe's. You won't be disappointed.
Vege Fried Bean Curd. Not bad, worth trying.

Fried Onion Egg. That's what it is called here. Normal is how I would describe this dish.
The Kai Lan was fried just right. It is cooked but still with that crunchy bite. Just the way I like my Kai Lan done. Old House cafe has quite an extensive menu. You can even get Bak Chang, Chai Kueh, etc.
You can find Old House Cafe here at: no.145-153 Kimberley Street. 10100 Penang. Tel: 04-2622113
**No Govt & Serv charges
