Following our first visit to the newly revamped Penang Village, we went back to try their cooked dishes. On our first subsequent visit, the food was really good hence we made another trip there during Ramadan and this time round, I snapped pictures of the food.
We tried their stir fried black pepper beef which we liked as it came with tender beef slices and a sauce which went so well with rice.
Penang Village has always been famous for their Heh Bee (Prawn Sambal) dishes. Here it's done butter style with lots of curry leaves and fried with seafood. We tried their Heh Bee Butter Sotong instead. Sadly, this was really dissapointing as they had overcoated the squid with batter. Even though you removed the batter and just eat the sotong, it was chewy and tough. We ended up abandoning this dish and just picking the heh bee fried bits to eat with my rice.
Instead of green vegetables, we went for something different and ordered the lotusroot with cashewnut. It's pretty good with sliced crunchy lotus roots, chinese mushrooms, carrots and young corn all fried together and topped with cashewnuts.
The last time we ate here, we tried their Foo Yong Omelette which was really good as it came with fresh button mushrooms. This time round, they had omitted the fresh button mushrooms and added shitake mushroom or Chinese mushroom that were not as fragrant. I guess since this is more of a kitchen sink omelette, it's whatever there is available in the kitchen fridge that they will chop up and cook this in.
Since there was such a marked difference between the food quality from the other day, we suspect that the chef must have stepped out to break fast hence it was the assistant chef helming the kitchen at the time when we ordered our food. Incidentally, just after we paid the bill, the electricity went off in the shopping centre that threw the place into chaos. Luckily we had finished eating as I wouldn't have liked to eat my dinner in the dark or by candlelight.
