Penang Food Post 3

A local friend recommended this Thai restaurant located at Abu Siti Lane- Maa Roy Thai Food Restaurant . It is run by Thai family, it seems...coz is even written in front of the menu that their chef is from Thailand haha!!

Anyway, the meal was delectable.
First came the Tom Yom soup, rich and yummy~~~~ 7/10

Then, we ordered pad prik chicken, expected to be the spicy type which we have tried in another restaurant, but, it was not. Anyway, taste more like Chinese style. 6/10

But I love this crispy fried fish with mango salad, they removed the bone and it was nicely fried 8/10

After the meal, we just hopped to coconut stall next few door to have a nice and cooling drink!

We also enjoy our afternoon tea at Winter Warmers@ Gurney Plaza. I really love the rose milk tea here, as well as the classic English cup....sadly no outlet in Ipoh...:(

The peach milk tea also taste good

Our friend ordered the Iced Mixed Fruit Cocktail

That's end of the food marathon......

Looks awesome, to be honest I love mango crispy salad! awesome but must eat them fast as the liquid from the salad migh soak into the crispy fish and end up being soggy. I love this dish lol! I had tried at Kepong, ithey use crispy cat fish, very crunch! On the other hand I find some places do charge a bowl of tom yam soup rather expensive, am I right? ;)

I was at Winter Warmers too with my hubs about a month ago. Very nice setting they have. I saw BT Food Court too when I was in Penang but didn't give it a try. Now that you've mentioned the food is good, I shall give it a try the next I go to Penang. You are a real sek wong hau (eating queen). Your blog always makes me drool!
