Loh Bak is one of the must-try items when you’re in Penang. While the island boasts a good number of stalls serving this popular treat, one of the popular places to have your Loh Bak is Kheng Pin cafe along Penang Road.

I was told the uncle has been frying loh bak for almost 40 years and serves traditional loh bak such as tofu, prawn fritters, fish rolls and meat rolls. This loh bak was seasoned just right with five spice powder, and the meat remained moist beneath the crisp beancurd skin.

Also good was the fritters made with small prawns. The batter held the prawns together and was deep fried till crunchy. Best eaten with the homemade chili sauce and thick starchy sauce provided.

If you’re planning to visit Penang, remember to give this a try. Ask for a mixed platter and don’t bother ordering a small portion; a large one will barely be enough. :P
