Macau Street Cha Chan Ting 澳门街茶餐厅 @ Icon City, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

More like a family restaurant at Icon City, Macau Street Cha Chan Ting 澳门街茶餐厅 does not only dish out Macau or Hong Kong-inspired dishes; the Chinese restaurant also churns out local Malaysian delights. It has a big menu to offer making it suitable for all age range- from appetizers, to noodle/ rice dishes, stir fries or even desserts. The price points are affordable and importantly, the dishes commensurate with the prices. It is also worth mentioning that there are ample seatings available, and the restaurant is able to accommodate big groups of diners (the restaurant occupies 2 floors).

Many Thanks to Macau Street Cha Chan Ting for hosting us.

Claypot Seafood Porridge (Rm 58/ small) *only available Fri-Sun*

Nasi Lemak (Rm 25.90)

Curry Pork Belly with Mantou (Rm 22.90)

Grilled Mongolian Chicken Chop (Rm 25.90)

Shark's Fin Soup (Rm 13.90)

Grass Jelly with Longan (Rm 9.90)

Start off with Macau Street Cha Chan Ting's best seller and signature Shark's Fin Soup (not the real Shark's Fin, don't worry). The broth has a nice consistency- not overly thick nor watery, but the real draw is the generous amount of Dried Scallops, making each mouthful packed with Umami flavors. Good on its own but even better with a dash of Black Vinegar for the acidity and aroma. Another signature dish of theirs is the Nasi Lemak, a luxurious version of Nasi Lemak. It comes with Squid Sambal, Prawns, Anchovy Sambal, Curry Chicken, Sunny Side Up and some greens. While the rice is not as Lemak as it should be, the accompanying Curries make up the deal. The Anchovy Sambal packs a powerful spicy punch. 

The Claypot Seafood Porridge is another worth mentioning dish. Only available on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday; the Claypot Seafood Porridge is a favorite for family diners with young children. The Porridge is expertly cooked with a good consistency, the addition of Mud Crab, Prawns and Clams introduces another layer of seafood sweetness to the Porridge. For the Rm58 portion, it is good for 2 to 3 small eaters. For those who prefer Western food, the Grilled Mongolian Chicken Chop is a good choice. Instead of deep frying the Chicken Chop, Macau Street serves theirs grilled. So it has a firmer, meatier and less greasy texture. The sauce is a brilliant creation of the Chef- it is a creamy, savory Curry-based sauce (with a little heat) that works on both the Chicken Chop and Fries (though the other sides do not really pair well).
