The Best Penang Restaurant in Singapore

Singapore Blogger
Flying to Penang is a yearly event that I do to pray at the temple of '九皇大帝'. I have been practicing this tradition since 20 years ago and I really like Penang's unique culture and food. Hoping to find similar taste of Penang in Singapore, I tried many places but to no avail, none have the authentic flavor that is comparable. However recently when I was introduced to this restaurant called Island Penang which serves traditional Penang food, I was elated! The vibe, smell and setting of the restaurant blended so well, giving me a positive impression that this is the one that I have been searching for the longest time.


Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle

One of the signatures, the prawn noodles here steals the limelight with it's robust broth filled with strong prawn flavors, natural pork bone sweetness, herbs and spices. Served with two types of noodle, yellow noodle and thin vermicelli giving it a different bite texture.  This bowl of delicacy is added with a tinge of chilli oil that works like magic lifting your appetite.

Penang Fried Kway Teow

Seems easy to cook but in fact if is not. Fried Kway Teow requires good frying skill to create that wok-hei flavor that I always emphasize on. I can smell it even before digging in. Not stingy on the ingredients, it comes with thick fish cakes, Chinese sausages, bean sprouts and fresh big prawns. Each piece of flat noodle is fragrantly fried, a must-order when you are here. 

Penang Assam Laksa

I would say this is a perfect bowl of Assam Laksa compared to many others that I have tried. Not just only because of the taste but the amount of effort put in this dish. Everything tasted so good, the sourness and spiciness of the broth boiled from more than 20 ingredients are cooked for long hours is not too overwhelming, you would not want to stop drinking simply because it is irresistible. Even the chopped fishes which are the main ingredient are generously served without any bones, catering to the convenience of customers.
