When the family comes down to visit me, many a time I’ve been asked by my mom or grandma :
Sometimes, my whole motley crew of a family would appreciate nothing but Chinese food. Yeah, they occasionally prefer those oriental delights of which I don’t know much about. Neither do I know where to take them to, should they opt for Chinese cuisines.
But with invitations courtesy of CK, Mr. Robert Yeoh and chef-son Mervyn, I know just exactly where to bring my family to now.. and so do you! Behold the glorious Penang Hawker Food and Nyonya cuisine, now in Kota Damansara.
Often, I get comments such as :
get to eat Penang’s good food. Not fair”
Apart from tasting the food, I couldn’t help but to dart my eyes across the room. The interior is really one deserving a standing ovation. It’s so intricately built with fine carvings, authentic Chinese-themed furniture and oriental antiques on display that it’s really hard not to think of the place as an ancient eatery from the early dynasties.
There were so many people in the house and more lining up outside during lunch hour! As I observed, The Wok Cafe’s customers were made up of mostly Chinese families or working adults in groups of 2-8 people. Or other food-lovers likes us!
ranny would reward the kids with candy for being good lil boys and girls or simply by just finishing their spinach? Well, my great grandma would gimme those treats too.
Speaking of treats, it’s time for dessert!
Yes I’m saving the best for last.
I’m pretty sure you know him
AND HIS FAMOUS ICE-KACANG MOM AT HOME
Oh yes.. here’s The Wok Cafe’s version of Ice-Kacang!
That signature bowl of shredded ice, kidney beans, coconut milk, sago and many more makes their ice-kacang one of the favorite desserts to end a complete meal.
