Yue Ping Chicken Rice (月萍豆芽鸡) @ Kimberley Street, Georgetown, Penang.

More than 15 years back, my parents used to bring me to a place at Air Hitam... somewhere opposite Shell Petrol Station. There's a small alley right next to a row of shop houses and over there, one could find some delicious yet comforting Chicken Hor Fun... Rice and Porridge. They were no longer there since 1995 (or 1996) and recently, we hear that they have recently resumed their business operation at a new location... Kimberley Street. The new shop is located somewhere in the middle of Kimberley Street, facing the junction of Jalan Pintal Tali. 



Signature Blanched Chicken (Rm 16/ half bird)

Yue Ping's signature Blanched Chicken was smooth and tender, though not the best I had but they were slightly better than average. The real draw of the dish was the premium Soy Sauce that carried a sleek of sweetness. It was not monotonous but it would be perfect if they could add some fresh Coriander... for the extra crunch and flavor. Their home-made Chili dip is not to be missed either. The flavors were well-balanced, it had the perfect acidic tilt to spice things up. 


[Soup] Hor Fun (Rm 1.50)


[Dry] Hor Fun (Rm 1.50)


Blanched Bean Sprouts (Rm 3)

Yue Ping's Hor Fun was not as light and smooth as we would have hoped. It was a little dense but we were fine with it. The Dry version fared slightly better than the other, the soup was probably a little too light to my taste. The Blanched Bean Sprouts on the other hand, were carefully cooked to the right doneness (not too raw or overcooked).
