Savour Singapore’s best-loved Penang heritage buffet and indulge in 60 authentic Penang delights at the buffet line.
Where the Priness Terrace (PT) was THE place to go for Penang food, there are now many restaurants who have taken over the lead. My last trip to PT was not good, the food was not well prepared and the soups bland.
This time around, they seem to have brought in a new life to the food.
- hokkien mee soup was tyical of Penang style.
- popiah and kueh pai ti delicious and they make it for you (customised also can)
- fried kway teow, penang style was mediocre, not typical of Penang
- assam laksa was average, not enough body (fish).
- large prawns in chili were delicious
- teh tarik was well made
- dessert cakes were small and delicious.
Question is, is it worth $60 for lunch ! The answer is only if you are very hungry and can gobble your way through all the dishes for 2-3 hours.
Value: Overpriced for local Penang food.
Service: Clean up regularly, pick up used dishes.
Ambience: Cooll and comfortable.
I frequent this restaurant 3 ~ 4 time a year for the past years.
The drawing factor was the "too-thor th'ng" or the "Pig Stomach Soup / 猪肚汤”.
Imagine my disappointment when I visited Princess last evening and head for the TTT to start off.
The chef must have dropped x kg of the white pepper into the soup.
It taste nothing but spicy.
Next I went for my No. 2 craving, the Prawn Noodle.
Round 1, without even checking with me, the server simply dish in a spoonful of chilli paste into the Prawn noodle. Needless to say, that is not the way to spice up a soup-ed dish.
I requested for another bowl without that ridiculous chilli paste to taste the soup.
Failed – the old receipt for this prawn soup has been altered to sour + spicy ie. 酸辣汤.
There is always an old Hokkien say, “厉害就好不要假厉害”!
The only comfort is that the cooked area are Prawn-Paste-chicken, Curry Chicken, Sambal Fish and the Braised Pork Belly are still kept the tested-n-proven cooking method.
It time to start checking other Penang food outlets.

There are live stations where the friendly chef would dish out your favourite noodles such as the Hokkien Prawn Mee Soup, Char Kway Teow, Duck Mee Sua and Kway Teow Thng. I liked the size of the portions, which was not too filling so that I could try more dishes.
The Hokkien Prawn Mee Soup had a rich broth, with extremely fresh prawns.
