Da Le Restaurant 大乐餐厅 @ Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

For a casual, quick and inexpensive China Chinese meal, make your way to Da Le Restaurant 大乐餐厅, conveniently located on the main street of Jalan Tanjung Bungah (opposite to Dalat International School). The new Chinese eatery offers a relatively big Chinese menu, featuring some Chinese delights from different regions- Sze Chuan, Zhe Jiang etc. There are also a handful of Chinese dishes familiar to most Malaysians (like Hainanese Chicken). The place is air-conditioned, and a meal here would not put a hole on the wallet. Worth checking out if you are in the vicinity. 

Chong Qing Xiao Mian (Rm 7.50)

Peking Zha Jiang Noodles (Rm 7.50)

Hang Zhou Xiao Long Bao (Rm 4.50/ 4 pcs)

Shui Jian Bao (Rm 5/ 4 pcs)

[Special Menu] Century Egg with Garlic Dressing (Rm 8)

Not to be confused with the usual Xiao Long Bao, Da Le serves Hang Zhou style Xiao Long Bao. The former has a thin dumpling skin with some broth in it but the latter one is just like any other meat bao/bun. Not bad for a change but it can be quite filling. We prefer their Shui Jian Bao... the bottom crust offered a crispier texture. Both Baos shared the same filling though. For the mains, we had the Chong Qing Xiao Mian and Zha Jiang Noodles. The former one fared better in our opinion, it was not overly spicy, just with a gentle heat. The noodles were silky smooth sans the al-dente bite though. We did not like the flavor combo of the Zha Jiang Noodles. We suspect some waxed meat was added and the flavor combo was odd (to us).
