Penang Food in Kepong @ Restoran Tong Siang 同乡美食坊

I often proud to say that staying in Kepong is like staying in food heaven as its strategic location has attracted many restaurants and food businesses over here. Some nice foods that I had taken to tame my stomach were at Chew Jetty Penang Chiak and Bel Pasto Italian Restaurant. After moving into new housing area, we had come back for good food in Aman Puri area;Kepong. Restoran Tong Siang for their nice penang delicacies. 

At the entrance,a banner was found on the wall stating that mom's recipe including crumbed fish and chips, signature nasi lemak, penang delicacies and etcetera. 

The menu

The signature Jawa mee was definitely worth a try! Its taste closes to the one we had eaten in Penang. The flavorful potato gravy with spicy chili paste and ingredients like crunchy prawn fritters, boiled egg, bean curds and generous spray of peanut powder. 

The asam laksa which is a spicy-sour, fish-based soup.Prawn paste /"heh ko" in hokkien and a handful of peppermint leaves enhances the asam laksa.A fulfilling, familiar feel, yet the fish is significantly lesser than last time.

Hokkien Mee

If you dislike having Penang cuisines, you may consider ordering a plate of nasi lemak. The sambal is delicious!

Choices of desserts



The cendol is nice, yet 八宝冰 Ais Kacang Eight Wonders presumably have 8 different types of toppings has disappointed me much as I could only find mainly red beans.

To rate the foods (3.5 out of 5), I shall say that asam laksa, jawa mee and prawn noodles are worth to be tried here. The signature nasi lemak is one of the famous dishes that locals order too.
