Grandma's Home Food 外婆家的味道 @ Jalan Lembah Permai, Tanjung Tokong, Penang.

For those who are seeking authentic China Chinese home-cooked food, look no further than Grandma's Home Food 外婆家的味道 at Jalan Lembah Permai, Tanjung Tokong. This unassuming Chinese restaurant offers an intimate menu with a nice Northern China twist. Some of the dishes resemble shades of Beijing delights; the proprietor is from mainland China and accordingly, she wants to bring in authentic flavors from her hometown. Not the typical Sze Chuan Hotpot or Ma-La dishes, the food offering at Grandma's Home Food is something casual and comforting like Soup Noodles, Beef Pie or Dumplings. One thing for sure- not as greasy as expected, probably back to the homecooked food concept, the dishes are mildly seasoned and less-greasy. 

Chinese Beef Pie (Rm 3.80 each/ min order of 2)

Beef Dumplings (Rm 1.80 each/ min order of 5)

Beef Skewer (Rm 2.80 each)/ Lamb Skewer (Rm 3.80)/ Chicken Skewer (Rm 1.80)

Hot and Sour Noodle Soup (Rm 9.80)

Zha Jiang Noodle (Rm 15.80)

Grandma's Soup Noodle (Rm 9.80)

We strongly recommend trying their Chinese Beef Pie, which we thought it stole the limelight on that day. The minced Beef inside was with a burst of juice, expertly seasoned and together with the pan-fried Dumpling-like skin, it felt like eating Burger in a different form. No extra seasoning or dipping sauce was required, we were happy to enjoy it just like that. It was so addictive that we had to order for extra. The Beef Dumplings were not shabby either, the Dumpling skin has a nice texture while the inner filling was good. We did not like the Skewers though, we thought the smoky hue was missing and they lacked the X factor. On the noodles, none of them registered a strong impression; not that they were disappointing but nothing out of the ordinary. The signature Beef Pie is probably the only reason we would return.
