What's ho liao

My bro suggested this new cafe in Jalan Datuk Abang Abdul Rahim. Same row with Talleywood furniture shop (the row of shop next to the big drain that was a stone throw away from Hock Lee centre). This corner lot cafe is named "Penang Holiao". Holiao means "good food".


As the name suggested, it serves Penang's famous dishes such as prawn noodle, char kway teow and Penang Cendol.


Operating hours are from 6.30am to 3.30pm (Monday to Saturday) and 7.30am to 3.30pm (Sunday) while off day is on every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.


Together with my mum, we went there on one Friday for breakfast. It was around 830am when we reached there. The cafe was empty since it was early. It is an air-con cafe with few seats in front of the cafe for those who prefer outside seat and smoke.


After looking through its menu, mum and I placed our order with a young man. 


Mum had its fried tang hoon (RM6.90) as highly recommended by my bro. Taste-wise it was good and enough wok hei but my mum complained it was getting saltier as she finished up her dish. Lol.


My special char kway teow (RM9.90) was nothing that special other than the 3 big prawns. In the menu, it stated that the special char kway teow consisted of Chinese sausage, duck egg and prawns. I specifically requested no chilli for my kway teow since I were sharing it with my boy. They omitted the cili padi in the noodle for us.

Next time I drop by here, I would like to try the prawn noodle. Not sure when, it definitely would not be any time soon. Somehow it is out of the way unless I specifically go out of the way for it.

The cook probably did not stir thoroughly the tang hoon, that's why the saltiness not evenly distributed. LOL!

I love fried tang hoon but not easy to get tasty ones. Sometimes we get very oily ones.

I can't eat tang hoon. Will have problem with indigestion so I always stay away from it. CKT I can and yours look very good. I'd like to try the Prawn Noodle too as Penang prawn noodle is nice :)
