My first visit to Gurney Drive. The food there was still not too bad but just slightly too pricy. My partner and I ordered several dishes to try. We ordered Penang Assam Laksa, Penang Fried Kuay Teow, Penang Lor Bak, Penang Cendol and Penang Rojak. I'll describe each of them one by one.
Penang Assam Laksa ($5.90):
Both my partner and I don't really like the taste. It seems like they have added in peppermint taste to the assam paste or it's just the taste of assam. Besides, the noodles they used were kind of like 'Mee Tai Bak' or we call it 'Lao Shu Fen' in Chinese. 1 out of 5.
Penang Fried Kuay Teow ($7.50):
This fried kuay teow's taste was pretty fantastic. I can finish up two servings of it if my pocket allows. The only bad thing about it is that the price is close to triple of that you can purchase in a kopitiam. 4 out of 5.
Penang Lor Bak ($4.50):
Very very nice! Especially the Ghor Hiong. However, the serving was really small. Worth the try but just order one serving is sufficient for you to taste. not worth to order too many servings. 4 out of 5.
Penang Rojak ($4.50):
I like the tao pok! very crispy and they also added in fruits like pineapple, green apple (I think) and some other crunchy fruit-like stuffs. However, they only put like 4 small pieces of tau pok, and many other fruits. For me, I prefer to have more tau pok and you tiao. So this dish isn't that appealing to me. Taste wise still not too bad. 3 out of 5.
Penang Cendol ($3.50):
Nice taste. Just tastes slightly different from the usual Chendol that you can find in the food court. I guess that's what makes it nice. Not too sweet and the brown sugar syrup was very fragrant. 4 out of 5.
