Penang Char Kway Teow ($5.50) Aromatic "wok-hei" permeated the oodles of noodles completely. And because it was relatively grease-free, I hardly felt the twinge of guilt that usually accompanies the act of me falling face first into a plate of "char kway teow". The only thing I would change about this is the beansprouts. They could do with some fattening up.

Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun Soup ($4.50) I have walked past here several times at night and it's always full of customers feasting on their steaming hot pots of "Malacca Satay Lok Lok". I haven't tried it for myself so I can't comment but I did have their "Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun Soup" and it was really satisfying. They're generous with the smooth rice noodles - almost too generous in fact. And although the plentiful shredded chicken breast meat was a bit on the stringy side, all was forgiven when I sipped the soup. It was clear but full of flavour, and it had crispy bits of fried pork lard in it! Ok, anything with fried pork lard gets me beaming, so I was immediately nodding my head happily as I sucked up every drop of soup from the bowl. They also have this wonderful spicy chicken rice chilli sauce which went very well with the "hor fun" and shredded chicken. Another plus point is they are open till 2am every single night so I know where to go if I feel like having a healthy supper :)

Signature Pork Belly ($4.00) Ended up with this although we ordered the pork trotter as the staff realised they were out of pork trotters only 10 minutes after we had ordered our food and came to ask if this would do instead. Although this is supposed to be one of their signature dishes, I found the pork belly tough and dry. Also frankly, for $4, the portion size is way too small but maybe that’s CBD pricing 🤷‍♀️ Don’t waste calories or stomach space on this.

Penang Char Kuay Tiao ($5.80) Visited Jia Yi Wan primarily because some reviews claimed it had authentic Penang food and we’re always on the lookout for good Penang CKT. While this is pretty affordable food in the CBD, come with LOW expectations. This did not taste anything like Penang CKT and we were sorely disappointed. The noodles were quite sweet, and held none of the smoky taste of Penang CKT. Noticed other tables leaving 3/4 of the plates as leftovers too so I’m sure we weren’t the only ones disappointed. Not sure if this is an isolated incident or that they changed chefs or something but I really don’t think any reputable food blogger can claim this is authentic Penang food. In addition, the kitchen was a mess with all the orders and the staff scrambled to check our receipts at our tables. With this standard of food and service, I would definitely not make a return trip.

Special Homemade Prawn Balls ($6.00) The prawn balls took the longest to be served, and that was only after the cook came out to check our receipts personally. I must say that the prawn balls did actually taste pretty good. The meat was springy, and they weren’t stingy with the prawn bits. Little cubes of water chestnut added crunch. Overall this was a nice side dish, but not nice enough to compensate for the disappointing main dishes to warrant another visit.
