Chowdown Report: Penang Garden (San Francisco Chinatown)

hyperbowler | Dec 11, 201408:49 AM

Singapore chain Crystal Jade and Singaporean/Malaysian Chili Padi opened in November, and prompted me to organize a Chowdown to see what standby Penang Garden was capable of. It's been around since 2004 and has a menu containing Malaysian, Singaporean, and Thai dishes. We ate:

Roti canai w/ curry sauce
Roti murtabak w/ curry sauce

Hainan chicken rice

#68 Chile crab with fried buns
Rendang beef

Curry laksa (seafood)
Penang Asam laksa

Hokkien mee (fried noodles)

Belachan kang kung (water spinach, ong choy)

= From the menu written in Chinese =
Thai style salty pork leg
Chinese yam (dioscorea opposita; nagaimo) and mixed mushrooms
Oyster omelette

= Dessert =
Durian pancake
Coconut pudding

I'll jump in with comments after others weigh in.
