This local spot is tucked in one of the folksy shophouses in the Masjid Jamek area; Lekiu Cafe’s interior is similarly simplistic, as well as a compact lunch menu that’s suited for a quick lunch break. The Iced Coffee here was rich and had a slight hint of Milo, whereas the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (MYR10.90) was perfectly executed — a whole chicken leg with a thin, crispy coating that retains a juicy and fleshy texture on the inside, the coconut rice was just right in fragrance and the sambal was tasty and spicy with a notable kick. While the roti bakar peanut butter (MYR4) did seem intriguing at first, it turned out to be just a pressed toast filled with regular peanut butter. Aside from the fact that it’s doused with an odd amount of lettuce, the Kuey Teow Goreng (MYR7.50) here had a satisfying flavor and a good touch of ‘wok hei’.

New air-conditioned restaurant in town, which promotes local Penang cuisines.

Soup 🍜 was nice, but the beehoon was a bit uncooked. Told the lady boss about before I left, and she quickly ran to the kitchen to make sure it’s soaked well before cooking.

More dishes to be offered this month, according to her. .
Saw many other patrons tried their signature char koay Teow and Assam laksa. .
.
Shall I return? 🤔

Daughter Peoh’s a place you’d run to if you’re desperately looking for something local at an air-conditioned spot. The char koay teow won’t do much in satisfying the craving though as it lacked the qualities of a good Penang-style char koay teow. Felt like I was playing a game of “Where’s Waldo” searching for cockles (which are puny) and duck egg (close to none). Filing this under char koay nope.
