Liu Bing Shi (六號冰室) @ Lorong Selamat, Georgetown, Penang.

Enjoy a taste of Hong Kong at this newly opened Hong Kong cafe along Lorong Selamat that serves up Hong Kong delicacies. Started in late 2018, Liu Bing Shi (六號冰室) tries to bring in the classic Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng dining experience... with the whole place turning into Hong Kong-styled coffee shop, offering a menu comprises of a variety of Hone Kong delights. Expect to see the instant noodles-alike dishes, Wan Ton Mee, Cheese Baked Rice, Soup Macaroni, Toasts and some Hong Kong street food. There were some hits and misses but still a decent place to ease your cravings for Hong Kong food.

Beef Brisket Noodles 柱侯牛腩面 (Rm 12.90)

Fried Rice with Beef Brisket 焖牛腩面 (Rm 13.90)

Mock Shark's Fin Soup 碗仔翅 (Rm 4.90)

Curry Fish Balls 咖喱鱼蛋 (Rm 3.90)

Steamed Custard Egg 炖蛋 (Rm 5.90)

The Beef Brisket Noodles did not come as how we expected; instead of Soup, the noodles were served in a thick, gooey gravy. The gravy was a little under-seasoned so the whole dish was on the milder side. Texture of the noodles was great and the Beef Briskets were decent; but the lack of seasoning deducted some marks. Fried Rice with Beef Brisket on the other hand, fared better than the noodles. The Fried Rice was beautifully cooked with bold "wok hei" and together with the tender, flavorful Beef Brisket, it makes a contenting meal. Steamed Custard Egg could have been better as well, the texture was a little rough on the sides while the middle part was runny, a little more practice needed to perfect the cooking time.
