Monkey Legend- Aligot Mashed Potato with Cheese @ Greenlane, Penang.

Tam Sui Old Taste Cake at Greenlane welcomes a new neighbor... Monkey Legend, a small kiosk that offers Potato goodies. Aligot, the French Potato dish... known for strings of gooey, cheesy physical appearance has finally made its first debut in Penang with the opening of Monkey Legend. The new kid on the block rolls out a small but creative Potato-centric menu. Similar to Rice Bowls, Monkey Legend's Mashed Potatoes are served with crunchy greens and meaty toppings. Diners can have the option to go for classic Mashed Potatoes or "Aligot"... with Cheese and Cream blended in. It does require some patience though... as the Aligot must be made on the spot upon receipt of orders. While take-aways are popular but if you insist to dine-in, there are a couple of tables and some chairs behind the place for you. 

"The Original" Aligot (Rm 13.90 + Rm 2/ extra vegetables)

The Aligot is not served as it is... after it is ready and topped with various of toppings (for the case of "The Original", fried Sausages, sliced Cucumbers, diced Carrots, Corn Kernels, blanched Broccoli and caramelized Onions are served)... additional sauce will then be added, with a choice between "Tom Yum" and "Honey Mustard".

The texture was amazing and the creamy-cheesy flavor was certainly addictive. Good on its own but even better with the addition of Honey Mustard... which introduced a sleek sweetness to the Potato. The greens offered a crunchy bite to the otherwise monotonous Potato-concoction. Pretty small portion and might not be too filling for the big eaters; great snack option nevertheless.
