Petaling Street

Petaling Street

A few years back, I walked into Petaling Street in Melbourne hoping to get a taste of home but sadly, the Char Kway Teow I ordered was terrible. So when I saw that they’ve opened an outlet in Sydney, I was apprehensive.

However, mummy heard rave reviews from her friends about the Fish Head Bee Hoon so we thought we’d pay them a visit. 🙂

The entry is a little cramped lane which opened up to a 30-odd seat eatery. It felt like an old Malaysian diner with wooden furniture and oily floors.

As usual, there were too many dishes we want to try but sadly, the 2 of us could only eat soooooooooo much. 😦 We picked 2 favourites to try.

Penang Assam Laksa

This is by far the best Penang Assam Laksa I’ve had since the food court at Scotts Shopping Centre in Singapore!

The soup was delicious with just the right amount of assam and spice. Extra hae ko of course! Nothing was scrimped in this dish! It even had torch ginger flower in it!

Except for the slightly hard noodles, this dish was perfection! Definitely a 4.5/5.

Special Penang Fried Kway Teow

What makes this so special? It had cockles in them!

The cockles were frozen or probably a little overcooked but it is still cockles! Hahahah! It’s a Singaporean thing! 😛

The dish was alright. Not much to brag about. By Singaporean standards, I’d rate it a 3/5. By Aussie standards, I’d give it a 4/5.

Bubur Chacha

To think they only had bubur chacha and chendol available on the dessert menu was a tad disappointing.

The bubur chachar was nice but a little too sweet for me though. The crushed peanuts on top were different! It added a really nice texture and aroma. 4/5

All in all, the service was good. Our food came out fast and piping hot. They were accommodating with special requests and extra condiments.

I’m looking forward to my next visit and trying out the Sliced Fish Bee Hoon Soup! 😀
