Although I was extremely skeptical I decided to make the trek up to Frisco. Boy was I glad!
The food is very authentic. Penang Restaurant is like Mecca for Malaysians in DFW. 95% of the tables were full of malaysians.
They have an open kitchen with 4-5 chefs (all malaysians). The roti canai was fantastic and made by hand. I have to say that it is the best I've had in the US - even better than the Nyonya/Baba restaurant in NYC.
Other dishes I tried -
Belachan Kangkung - could use more belachan (stinky shrimp paste). was a little oily as well.
Rendang - excellent . good edible meat. the curry should have been a little drier but the curry sauce was so good i didn't care.
Hainanese Chicken rice - just like it's done in Malaysia though it could comewith a bowl of chicken broth like they do in Msia.
Cha Kwey Teow - excellent noodle dish. wasn't oily at all and had all the ingredients except for cockles (which tastes like chewy blood so i don't mind that they've omitted it).
Ice Kachang - it's like a large snow cone. Shaved ice with palm seeds, jelly,corn, rose syrup and red beans. Yum... felt like a kid again when i ate this.
I am really keen to go back there.
