Max Gourmet

Seafood Wat Tan Hor (small) MYR8+ (MYR8.48 nett) - my mother likes this as the taste is not salty (she is not supposed to eat salty food).

Grouper fish fillet mee hoon in clear soup - MYR16+ (MYR16.96 nett). There were 5 thick slices of fresh fish fillet. I was surprised to find cloud ear fungus (black fungus) in this bowl of noodle as it was not included in fish mee hoon back in KL. Price is very reasonable so I will order this noodle again.

The meehoon (vermicelli noodle) is not those thin ones that I am accustomed to. It is slightly thicker.

Chives dumplings - MYR3+ (3.18) and Prawn dumplings - MYR3.80 (4.03)

Max Gourmet at Komtar Walk, Penang. We were in Penang the last weekend to celebrate Mother's day with my mother and siblings.

Open concept

  2. I would love both bowls of noodles and the dumplings too. I like places with an open concept like that but I would pick tables directly underneath a ceiling fan, not really a fan of air conditioning. Lovely place...but oh my English!!!

  3. I like the wat tan hor and chives dumplings.. I find prawn dumplings very "fake" sometimes, with that crunchy feeling when you bite onto that prawn..

  4. I always eat Wan Tan Hor during lunch at work. It is appetizing when I cannot swallow rice due to my mood swings were tensed. I even asked for double eggs and they looked so yellow but more fragrant.

    Next month, I will be visiting Penang. I have to read back your blog postings to see what I should eat. Hee hee...
