Gurney Drive Singapore Style

Princess Terrace at Copthorne King's is where we go to when we want some authentic Penang food. Us, and seemingly the entire community of Penang-ites in Singapore, and understandably so. The variety is good, representing the range of Penang hawker favourites and more, the food is delicious and the price per head is a reasonable $33+++ (at the time of this visit, for Citibank card holders, there was more good news: for every three guests, a fourth dined free.)

clockwise, from left: otah otah (fish cake); penang char kuay teow (fried flat rice hoodles); nasi lemak (rice with coconut milk); nasi ulam (rice with herbs and spices) plus a dollop of sambal belacan (chilli and dried shrimp paste)

"ark thui" mee sua (duck leg rice vermicelli)

penang laksa

freshly made popiah (spring rolls)

kueh pie tee (spring rolls in cup form)

penang hae mee (prawn noodles)

apom (pancakes) with banana sauce

nonya kueh

tau huey with gula melaka (soy bean curd with palm sugar)

teh tarik ("pulled" tea)

There was lots more, but the stomach's capacity is finite. Alas...

For more of my thoughts on Princess Terrace, check this out.
