Penang Delight Cafe – Seafood Laksa
Not too long ago, we had our first visit to Penang Delight Cafe on Rupert Street. The food was pretty good so when we found ourselves running errands in the neighbourhood recently, we wound up stopping by for another go. One of the things that we enjoy about Penang Delight is the music that they play – not your usual top 40’s stuff. It might seem a little odd to hear 70’s western music while enjoying some terrific Malaysian cuisine, but we liked it.
The Roti Canai came out piping hot and I almost burnt my fingers trying to pick these up but it was worth it. As I mentioned on my last post, I wasn’t too impressed by the dipping sauce that comes with the roti but it went great with the laksa that we ordered. I think the thing that I like most about roti is how it’s both crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I’ve watched some videos on how street hawkers make roti but even after watching them, I still can’t figure out how they manage to make it look so easy.
On our last visit, our server talked us into ordering the Pandan Chicken Wings but we really wanted to try the Chef’s Special Chicken Wings. The Chef’s Special comes with a nice hot dipping sauce and the chicken wings had a thin, crispy skin.
The Seafood Laksa comes in a velvety curry soup with a lot of yummy ingredients like large shrimp, fish balls, tofu, and egg. This bowl was pretty big and, as I mentioned before, the curry was perfect for dipping the roti in.
We felt the need for some veggies so we decided to get the Malasian Specialty Vegetables which is stir-fried green beans, okra, eggplant, and onions with dried shrimp for an added punch.
