Penang Street Kopitiam sets from RM2.90!

chicken chop5 December 2011

I returned to Penang Street Kopitiam to try the set lunch on a weekday. Expectedly due to its reasonable prices, the place was almost packed to the brim with many people also taking the RM 7.90 nett set lunch while some others ordered nasi lemak which seemed quite popular.

The chicken chop some crinkle cut fries, fried mini bun & 2 pieces of cucumber. The chicken chop itself was a deboned drumstick with some tasty brown sauce which in general would be sufficient for light eaters. Oddly, I did not remember getting hungry much earlier than dinner time though. In the drinks area, one can choose between ice lemon tea or warm lemon tea :P Though at this price, they did not compromise on the size and taste of the drinks, be it the lemon tea or the teh tarik.

I bumped into this place during my recent visit to Andes which is just next door to it. The promotion which captured my attention was the nasi lemak set at only RM 2.90 which is available 3 times a day, 7am to 11am, 3pm - 6pm & 10pm to closing. Apart from that, there are other breakfast sets going for RM 4.90 like:

  • Chicken Porridge & Yau Char Kwai with teh tarik
  • Meehoon Siam with teh tarik

Lunch sets at RM 7.90 are also available which are comparable to Andes like:

  • Chicken chop & mini bun with ice lemon tea
  • White rice with paprika chicken & ice lemon tea

Apart from that, I also noticed that the prices of drinks are reasonable starting as low as RM 1.60 whereby you can make your own set at Rm 3.60 for toast & a teh ‘o’, definitely a quiet & cosy place to yum cha or simply have a personal chat.

During my visit there, which I unfortunately reached there almost 11am, the chicken porridge & nasi lemak sets were sold out. Thus, leaving me with only the meehoon siam set option. The meehoon siam seemed similar to those economy meehoon only with the added taste of lots of cabbage with a small piece of lime. However, I must confess the teh tarik was rich & tasty, quite similar to Belanga Cafe which is more upmarket.
