The Hype: Calling all Penang hawker food lovers! For a limited time from 4 September to 20 September 2015, the all-time popular Penang Hawkers’ Fare is back at White Rose Café at York Hotel to bring the best of Penang street food right to our doorsteps. Walk-in is quite impossible given the hype I witnessed on the first day, so I highly recommended to reserve ahead.
Highlights: Char Kway Teow, flavourful Penang Prawn Mee, tangy Penang Laksa, Nasi Lemak served with Nonya Chicken Kapitan, crispy Lor Bak, Penang Rojak, Cuttlefish Kang Kong, Oyster Omelette fried to a perfect crisp and Kway Teow Soup or Dry. The Penang Hawkers’ Fare is a congregation of renowned hawkers from Penang, who have specially flown in for the next two weeks to save us the air trip for our Penang food cravings. All servings are unlimited, except that it is common to queue a little for the food, which is well worthwhile.
My favourite is the Char Kway Teow, which I had multiple servings. So much wok hei, so good.
For desserts, Ban Chang Kueh, Ice Kachang and Chendol will surely not disappoint.
My top pick is the Ban Chang Kueh, ever crispy and and freshly made à la minute.
The Price: Extremely reasonably priced for buffet. Prices for weekends are inclusive of free flow of Bandung & Calamansi drinks.
Weekdays (Monday to Friday): $25.80++ per adult, $18.80++per child (below 12 years old)
Weekends (Saturday & Sunday): $28.80++ per adult, $20.80++per child (below 12 years old)
