Little Penang Cafe @ The Curve

It has been quite some time since I last dropped by at Little Penang Cafe. They have another branch in Midvalley Megamall. I do notice that the ingredients that they use are pretty fresh. The interior they tend to imitate the old style Penang coffee shops but this is air conditioned la :p

Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken (RM9.80) was pretty good. The currry chicken was cooked pretty well with the spices and they serve fresh sambal (chili paste - the one here uses fresh chilies). The steamed rice was not too rich in coconut which was just nice for me. I don't really like the rice to be too rich in coconut as it will give me a bad case of flatuence!

Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken

Being a halal place, normally Prawn Mee (RM9.80) would be served with pork slices. They have substituted it with shredded chicken. The portion is big and the soup is pretty good. The broth was pretty rich and thick. The prawns were big compared to those you would normally find in hawker centers (Of course la..the price more than double :p)

Prawn Mee
On the menu, it actually mentioned that the Fried Koay Teow (RM9.80) will take 20 minutes to prepare. Anyhow we ordered it and it came in less than 20 minutes. Probably like 15 minutes. The prawns are big and fresh. I always liked well cooked and small cockles in this and the ones that they put in here are like that. So suits me pretty well. There are small bits of crab meat in this (the white stuff in the picture). Taste wise it was just ok.

The Gurney Rojak (RM7.50) was just alright. They use the usual condiments found in fruit rojaks like green mangoes, cucumber, sengkuang and they do add cuttlefish! Just that I normally like crackers to go with it and this one doesn't have it.


I wouldn't mind coming back for the prawn noodle and other dishes. They do serve dishes to go with rice. There is a 10% service charge and 5% govenment tax. No charge for plain water!
