Penang Bistro

When we headed to EX to watch a movie, we were stuck with a terrible traffic in Thamrin, yup its really unpleasant.. And we were hungry at that time, so when we near to Kebon Sirih area, I just remembered to this bistro..

Penang Bistro, it's not a new restaurant in J-town but still quite popular till now and they are under the same management with Seribu Rasa..

The place is really spacious.. The interior was designed in minimalist style..

A bistro with a welcoming ambiance, cozy, and lovely..

From its name, of course Penang Malaysian food is on the menu and some seafood selections..

Let's indulge in some of Penang Bistro's dishes..

Roti Canai Beef Curry (27K) to start.. Fluffy on the inside but crispy and flaky on the outside.. As I am not a huge fan of curry, but it was delicious.. It was very flavorsome without being overpowering, the canai really goes well with it..

Malay Mee Goreng - Malaysian-style fried noodle (38K), yellow egg noodle fried with seafood, tofu, eggs in spicy based sauce.. The dish was pretty good, it's not wet but not dry, it's just right and flavorsome..

Sapo Tofu (43K), stir-fried mixed vegetables with Japanese tofu and seafood in gravy sauce.. This just an average dish, but with its gravy sauce it was really palatable..

If you're craving for some Penang style nyonya food at affordable prices, this Penang Bistro is not to be missed!
