Penang in Syosset - report

lumpy | Mar 1, 2001 01:09 PM

Penang has opened in Syosset on Berryhill Rd, and I took my family there last night to check it out and compare with the other Penang's around the area.

First, the good news. The food is very good. The roti canai appetizer was as good as any Penang. The Char Kway Teow (my favorite)was terrific.

Unfortunately, this restaurant charges much more than the Elmhurst restaurant for the same food. The roti canai appetizer( simple crepe with curry dipping sauce sauce)is $4.50; in Queens, it's $1.99. The char kway teow is $10.95 in Syosset, but only about $5 in Queens. Across the menu, everything is at least double (or more) the price of the humble Elmhurst location. I guess they figure the people of Long Island don't mind paying upper-east-side prices.

Our dinner w/ tip was $95. That's for three entrees and three appetizers and one dessert (my son had the fried ice cream). In Queens, we usually have a hard time spending more than $25.
