Gurney Drive serves penang hawker food.
It's not the best Penang food that I've had but it's definitely worth going back frequently for its price.
Its ice-blended Ampla Juice is also my staple drink even though I'm not a fruit juice person to begin with.
I will keep going back as long the restaurant maintains the quality and portions of the food now without raising the price.
Having stayed for 4 years in Malaysia and 1 year in Penang makes me have a penang food craving. and how does this restaurant deliver?? find out here: http://alxlovefood.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/penang-food-craving-at-gurney-drive/
Dear Readers, this is my 4th RE-POSTING. My previous 3 posts were mysteriously deleted. Pls find my feedback after dining at this restaurant below:
First visit. Total disappointment. Prawn Noodles Soup was very diluted and prawns unpeeled. Lor Mee has enough bee hoon but little pork meat and no taste. Fuchow Fishball Tung Hoon was also disappointting - Soup no taste, very little tung hoon. Whole place was smokey with smell of frying - place felt like hawker centre atmosphere, and felt like no aircon. Overhyped place. Understaffed for service and one or two waiters just ignored calls for attention.
One can get better chendol at Balestier market.
Have dined in Penang state many times. Very poor food to represent Penang.
I had dinner two nights ago with a friend and ordered a belachan fried rice and nasi lemak and several side dishes. The fried rice was great and flavorful without being overwhelming. The nasi lemak was so-so but enough for the price i paid. The chendol was above average though you should not expect the likes of those in malaysia. The side dish of stuffed dou fu with peanut gravy was recommendable and great for an appetite filler. The fried chicken was fair but a tad over-fried. I had a homemade water chestnut drink that was pretty authentic in taste. Perhaps i had low expectations for the dishes but they turned out pretty okay and i would definitely go back - if they don't increase prices! Service was average, but they had an almost full house. Good value for money.
