Tang Ren Guan (唐人馆) @ Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang.

One of the latest dining spots at Raja Uda is Tang Ren Guan (唐人馆), a place with heavy, bold Chinese elements. Enter the place and you will spot plenty of Chinese Tanglungs and Umbrellas... turning the place in a red hue. It's not a standalone restaurant/ cafe, in fact, it's a space gathering few eateries... forming some sort of upscale food court. Save for the beverage stall, there are 3 food stalls in operation right now- Tong Gei Siu Lap (唐记烧腊), Hakka Canteen (客家食堂) and Mr. Q Taiwanese Minced Pork Rice (Mr. Q 台湾卤肉饭). It adopts self-service... place your order with the respective stall and collect your order on the spot. Though the place is air-conditioned, it gets pretty warm in sultry hot afternoons. Playful setting but the lack of variety dissuades us from revisiting. 

Set A- Yong Tofu and Hakka Mee (Rm 11.90)

Mixed Combination- Duck/ Chicken and Char Siew (Rm 7.80) and Braised Egg (Rm 1.20 each)

Yong Tofu and Hakka Mee from Hakka Canteen was a disappointment; the noodles were clumpy and a tad too soft to our liking. The minced meat sauce had not done much in its aid either. Equally disappointing was the thinly sliced Yong Tofu with a sliver of Fish paste. The accompanying Chili dip possessed a rather strange flavor... a notch below the standard Yong Tofu we had. 

The mixed combination of meat from Tong Gei on the other hand, was mouth-pleasing. Not that the meat was mind-blowing delicious, the accompanying sauce and Chili dip were amazing. The combination works perfectly over rice we reckon.
