Penang Food @ OS Paramount Garden

If you are craving for Penang food but you are 3-4 hours drive away from the Northern pearl, you can find one of their southern counterpart here in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
This is a coffee shop which is no longer a stranger to most people; particularly the city folks and they serve a variety of Penang favourites; such as Hokkien Mee (the prawn mee version), Char Koay Teow, Loh Bak, Popiah, Rojak, Koay Teow Th'ng, Chee Cheong Fun, Nyonya Kueh, etc.

Koay Teow Th'ng (RM3.50) was the sure-tell sign of authentic Penang's version versus KL. The flat rice noodles in soup was accompanied by chicken floss and fishballs and was well-cooked for the soup to bring out the taste in the condiments.

As usual, the bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng was served with garnishings of spring onions and fried onions atop the flat noodles.

Seafood Noodles (RM4) was not exactly a symbolic Penang delicacy; we ordered it from a stall selling Fish Head noodles; and decided to go for the seafood version instead.

The turnout was surprising as they served this bowl of noodles with clams (lala), fishballs, fish slices, and prawns.

The soup was tasty and the ginger slices were useful to dispel the strong seafood smell.

Beef Noodles (Rm3.50) was Daddy's favourite; I don't take beef and certainly I can't comment and can only share the pictures to tell for themselves:p

We were fortunate that they still have their Hokkien Mee although we were there way past lunch hour.
The famous Penang Hokkien Mee was the signature of the Pearl of the Orient and I have noticed that most Penangites will never miss the opportunity to order their favourite bowl of noodles whenever they are in Penang or here, in this coffee shop.

The strong whiff of shrimps was enough to send most of their patrons to the stall and ordering one bowl of hot and spicy Hokkien Mee with additional chilli paste.

Last but not least, how can anyone disregard the existence of Char Koay Teow and with 2 Penangites with me, this definitely found its way on the table.

At RM3.50 a plate, it was served with 2 prawns and also fried flat rice noodles with bean sprouts and battered eggs.

A definitely nostalgic walk down the Penang hawker delights.

If you are a Penangite or a fan of Penang food residing in KL or the southern region, this may be the place for your temporary relief of Penang food cravings:)
