Moh Teng Pheow Nonya Koay was where we headed for our fix of Nonya Kuehs. Having visited Jason’s Nonya House and still craving for Nonya fare, we found Moh Teng Pheow Nonya Koay a popular venue for koahs such as Kueh Lapis, Kueh Talam and Kueh Bengka.
Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay at George Town Penang Malaysia
All in all, we enjoyed the food here. While there are standouts among the kuih we devoured, we think MTP should please any kuih fans with its variety and adherence to tradition.
We’re glad Moh Teng Pheow was recommended to us, because it’s very pleasant, and the food is decent at a good price. You’d probably want to go somewhere else for a substantial meal, but it’s good at what it does.
Laksa is good with a nice flavoured and balanced soup, albeit the price is slightly high - RM 6.00 for a bowl.
i feel .. it is worth trying this Nasi Ulam here.
Since we like our previous trip here so much, we went there again to try out the other food on the menu. This time I did not even know the price as this was a treat from my Penang friend. We share all the food among us.
Once you step inside, you will see the kitchen and you will find yourself in a living museum, demonstrating the entire kueh-making process using utensils from the past. This place really holds up the tradition of Penang Nyonya kueh! At lunch time, the family home at Moh Teng Pheow is packed and you may easily end up sharing a table, but that’s part of the fun.
Asides from the kueh, they have some local delights to go with like Asam Laksa, Nasi Ulam and even Nasi Kunyit. We had the Nasi Kunyit which is indeed a double thumbs up. The aromatic sticky rice with the fragrance of the rice combined with the creamy coconut based chicken curry. Each mouthful is sinfully good and it brings back the olden days where we enjoy the Nasi Ulam.
