Assorted Wan Ton noodles at Kafeteria Dan Hotel Eng Loh

Did not expect to have eaten here on this particular Friday lunch. Initial plan was for Loh Mee at the shop next to Kwan Yin temple along Jalan Masjid Kapitan. But the Loh Mee was closed, probably because of Hari Raya eve.
Anyway, thanks to an excellent suggestion from Poh Weng my good colleague, we decided to head to this restaurant that is reputed to have one of the best wan ton mee in Penang. With that proposition, we headed to Eng Loh Hotel and Cafeteria. It it one of those old heritage buildings and you can definitely see that its pretty old. The place was packed when we arrived and a good thing we managed to find 2 empty tables next to each other, as there was 8 of us.
The shop owner was really friendly and she even offered to let me photograph some of the dishes which we did not order. There is really an assortment to choose from and I went with the fried noodle with fried Sui Kau.
Actually I didn's really know what I ordered and just took her word for it. Heheh, when the dish arrived, first thing I was abit disappointed was that they put some chilli sauce (bottle kind) on the fried sui kau. I'm not a fan of bottled stuff. But other than that, it did looked impressive. Taste wise, I find it abit dry and the chilli sauce didn't help. But the sui kau was good.
Rating : 3.5/5
I also ordered the fried Char Yuk which is RM2 per bowl. This on the other hand is really good. The meat was tender and the flavoring is just nice. The owner gave me a try of the fried chicken feet stewed with mushroom. The chicken feet was juicy and the sauce excellent. These 2 items is a must try if you visit this shop.

There were many other dishes which looked really good which I will try when I return here such as the wan ton mee with stewed char yuk and black fungi, drunken chicken and the dry curry chicken.
