Sim Nam Hong Cafe, at Komtar Penang

A old Chinese Coffee Shop, currently located at KOMTAR, Phase 1. This coffee house which was located in the vicinity before KOMTAR, was build was relocated in to KOMTAR is located in a bit out of the way location. However if you want good Coffee Shop / Street Food (especially old style) while you are in the complex, this is one of the few locations.
When i drop in on this Wednesday, early around 12 noon, most of the stall was close, however lucky for me two of the best stall was open. The Tim Sum Stall here is good, with a wide verity of choice. See Picture below. What unique here is the Ikan Haruan Pau, and the Steam Otak Otak. Give it a try especially the Ikan Haruan Pau which is not common at all.
We had the Har Kau - Prawn Dumpling, the Siew Mai - Pork Roll, and the Seaweed Siew Mai, The Prawns in the Har Kau was covered in Fish Meat, The Siew Mai was Ok, but the Seaweed Siew Mai, was excellent, fragrant and soft.
The Hong Kong Chee Chong Fun, (prawn fill), was soft, and smooth. If I am not mistaken, all the Tim Sum are homemade, not factory manufactured.
I had the Yong Tau Fu, which mean to most is the Fish Meat fill vegetables, to me it is Pork Spare Parts of various types in a broth, serve with Yam Rice.
The Yam Rice was not up to expectation, however the pork spare parts were correctly prepared.
Location :
Phase 1 Komplex Tungku Abdul Rahman
