For classic and old-school dishes, make your way to Mun Thung X Soon Huat 满堂 x 顺發 at Campbell Street, the place dishes out familiar timeless delights like Hainanese Toasts, Stir Fried Vermicelli Noodles, Curry Chicken, Pork Lard Noodles etc. The name of the eatery is Mun Thung whilst Soon Huat is a long-established brand in Penang that sells alcohols and liquors. The young proprietor is combining two brands together by taking up a corner of the place to serve food. The seating arrangement is very simple... with some tables and chairs but the good thing is, the place is equipped with air-conditioners. Pretty straight-forward menu with wallet-friendly prices, a place worth-checking out.

Mun Thung's Signature Bun left us with the deepest impression... almost like Roti Kahwin (Toast or Bun with thick slab of Butter and home-made Kaya) but with sprinkles of crushed Peanuts and Sugar. The combo somehow worked and we thought it was a nice thing to enjoy with a cup of Black Coffee. On mains, we had Crispy Chicken Dry Noodle and Curry Chicken Char Bee Hoon. Both were quite good- the former dish was imbued with the fragrance of Pork Lard, lightly flavored and the real draw was the al-dente noodles. The home-made Chili paste was a nice addition too. Nothing overly exciting on the Fried Chicken though. The combo of Char Bee Hoon and Curry Chicken need no introduction but Mun Thung managed to tick all the boxes, just exactly how the moms would cook.
