Restoran Lorong Seratus Tahun @ SS2, PJ.

When one calls for hawker food the word 'Penang' will be the very first to slip out from ones mouth. Yeah, Penang is really famous for it's food and in the Penang Island itself there are so many famous hawker stalls selling world famous hawker food from shops along Jalan Burmah to Jalan Macalister to Gurney Drive.

Penang famous hawker food are as follows : Hokkien Mee, Rojak, Asam Laksa, Chee Cheong Fan, Char Kuey Teow, Mee Rebus, Nasi Kandar, Curry Mee, Oor Chean, the list is endless.

One need not travel all the way to Penang to enjoy all these lovely food cause you can get it in the heart of PJ in SS2. This place is famously known as Restoran Lorong Seratus Tahun.

This place is very popular amongst the locals cause the food which is being sold here truly resembles the original from Penang. It's not easy to find a restaurant which serves 'ori' Penang food and this is the reason why this place is always packed with new and regular clients.

Without fail one must order the famous Curry mee which came with squid and prawns with lot's of bean sprout and topped with semi-cooked cockles. When it came I just couldn't resist the temptation as it smelled so good. Add 2 spoonful of chilli sauce into it as I love it hot and spicy. Well, the soup tasted good, different from the local ones, full of santan taste in it BUT the noodles was just slightly overcooked (aiya no QC ar), only a couple of small miserable prawns which is 100% overcooked including the squids which tasted rubberish (tough to chew). Then again, one would not complain that much since finding a Penang style curry mee in KL is not an easy tasks.

We also ordered a plate of Chee Cheong Fan which came with prawn paste sauce and chilli sauce. It was topped with lot's of sesame seeds with lot's of fried shallots. This is one dish that will get 2 thumbs up from me. The sauce was just incredible. It's thick, it's yummy, it's delicious, it's mouth watering, it's just amazing. It's only amazing if you like the chee cheong fan in prawn paste sauce. Cool.....

Next came the nasi lemak with rendang chicken. This dish is really pathetic as the chicken size is really SMALL. Yeah, including the rice too. It's like kids meal. So little yet so expensive. This is a no-no. But it does taste OK. But the 'syiokness' is no longer there after seeing the portion of this meal.

There are so much to order from. Maybe on our next visit..... there's still otak-otak, chendol, ice kacang, char kuay teow.......

Conclusion. A pretty cool place for makan Penang hawker food. Taste really close to Penang 'Ori'. Not too bad. BUT very expensive ! compared to the ori price you pay in Penang.
