Wong Kok Kitchen

If there is one thing I would complaint about Queensbay Mall, Penang, It would be the lack of eateries in the mall. So, whenever I'm there, I never exactly had the problem on deciding where to eat.

Wong Kok Kitchen is another version of Kim Gary-like restaurant. I had thought that it is a franchise of Wong Kok Char Chan Teng but after going through the menu, I found out it isn't.

They have a varieties of pastries for you to choose and it is available the whole day. I find these pastries a good appetizer.

Yam Puff

This one is not commendable and it tasted way below average.

Egg Tarts

The puff pastry was almost perfect. They served it hot and I find the combination of hot creamy custard egg with the layers of crispy flaky pastry heavenly. Must order.
Po Lo Pau

This dish is the most remarkable from this restaurant. The pineapple pastry on top goes really well with the thick-generous knob of butter. Sinful but very, very good.

Macau Pork Burger

Me, being me would never miss any chances to order a pork dish. However I find the pork chop too small - about the size of half the bun. Also I was quite turn off by the foul pork smell.

Black Pepper Seafood Rice

This is Jessica's dish. I didn't try but she said it was alright. I didn't find it appealing though.

Milk Tea

The tea is priced at RM3.80 per glass. Pretty hefty I would say, especially when half the glass is filled of ice. But I can assure you, this is the best milk tea I've ever had.

While the food is easily passed on, I would say it's worth it to visit the place for the great pastries.

Foul pork smell - when the pork is not fresh it tends to have a smell.

You're welcome. Hope to see you in UUM. Haha!
