Lang Sae Lee Thai Food

Cuisines Thai
Business Hour 11am-10pm (It’s better to call Mdm Lee ahead of time to check if she’s open or to book a table and pre-order some items to avoid the long wait). Closed on Tuesdays.

If you are looking for many dishes to go with some fragrantly steamed Thai rice, it would require an advance booking to get the full range of dishes Madam Lee can wok up for you.

Expensive? I don't think we can get authentic Thai Food at that price with that kind of sea view.

The owner, Mr. Teh (Ah Ho) had more than 20 years of experience in cooking up fresh seafood noodles and porridge just for you. If the ingredients were not fresh as it should, they will definitely not pass the regular QC check of the boss.

As you walk into this soup, just walk into this section as you will be greeted with a very nice and polite lady which is the owner of the shop.

Weld Quay Restaurant (Tree Shade, 大树脚)

Cuisines Seafood
Business Hour 11am to 3pm, 6pm to 10pm. Closed on every Wednesday.)

The food is fantastic!! The food serving is even faster than any fast food restaurant. The most wonderful thing about this restaurant is that before you can even sit down comfortably while enjoying the complimentary fish cracker/ papadam with curry fish sauce as appetizer, your dish would be served.

Price-wise, was affordable for most dishes, but try to ask for price quotation first before you place your order if you are on a tight budget. Their fast-service was something impressive as well, so need not to worry on the time it takes to serve the food.

Restoran Hock Chuan Heong 福泉香饭店

Cuisines Chinese
Business Hour 12.00pm till 6:30pm (Closed on Sunday)

Hock Chuan Heong is one of the places with good Hokkien dishes that come with reasonable prices. The restaurant remains a good place for Hokkien dishes in Penang.

If you are looking for some authentic food then this is one of the place to hunt for. One of the set back of this location is limitation of Parking and best to park around Post Office area and walk towards behind it, or residential around that area.
