Cyberjaya Makan (5): Penang House, Street Mall

There's this building in Cyberjaya next to the bus terminal called Street Mall but I'd hesitate to call it much of a mall. There are a few places to eat there and some of them are not bad. One of the most popular lunch time restaurants in Street Mall must be Penang House. I'm not sure why they call themselves Penang House but they serve all varieties of Chinese food and Nasi Lemak. The great thing is that they're halal and you can usually find more than a few tables occupied by Muslims.

Open up their menu and you see Prawn Mee and Curry Mee being featured. They aren't great but they are good enough. Personally I like their Spring Onion and Beef Kuey Teow. My friends heartily recommend the Nasi Lemak. I've also tried some of their other noodles and I think their Fish Head Noodles are quite good. The important thing to remember when eating in Street Mall is NOT CHEAP (unless you eat at the mamak) ;p Expect to pay about RM10 for a main dish and a drink in any of the restaurants here (except for the mamak).

Soya Cincau. Cincau drinks are most worth your money in Penang House. Order any other drink and be surprised at how small the glass is.

Nasi Lemak with sambal, acar and a piece of chicken. I've never tried it but all my colleagues ordered it so it must be good.

Fish Head Noodles. Salted vegetable soup with bee hoon and thick chunks of fish meat. Quite filling.

Other recommended eateries at Street Mall are Hassan (mamak, try the rice everything else sucks), Kenanga (extremely expensive Malay mixed rice but oh so good), Che Siti (Malay rice like Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Dagang, etc...), Austin Chase Coffee (some really nice sandwiches) and the Italian pizza place at the back (can't remember the name, very pricey but good food all around).

Yucky place. Never like any of their food. For very good (and pricey) nasi lemak go Penang Village. Their tom yam is also syok. I won't recomment Penang House...

I think when Streetmall first opened, they had Top Hats, a branch of the one in KL but I guess it must have closed down already.

anonymous: you should explain what you meant by not being suci or are you saying this just because the owners are not muslim?
