Dinner at Foong Wei Restaurant, Penang.

Managed to book a table for dinner at 6.00 pm for 5 people at Foong Wei Restaurant in Sri Bahari Road. It was Grandma's treat for a nice lovely dinner. We ordered several signature dishes such as the Pampus argenteus (White silver promfret) cooked in two different ways- the bones and fins are deep fried while the flesh is stir fried with ginger, celery, carrot, mushrooms and scallions. 

And there's my favorite dish crispy taro ring with kong pou chicken. The outer ring of the taro is decorated with deep fried vermicelli which looked like a bird nest. Of course to start of the dinner, we had a big bowl of thick fresh seafood soup filled with dried scallops and crab meat.

The final dish we had was the restaurant's fried rice which has bits of chicken meat, egg decorated with green scallions and dried shallots. We were served with either hot tea or water.

The bill came up to RM191 inclusive of GST and service charge.
We were accidentally charged RM6.00 for 5 bowls of white rice when we didn't order at all.
After requesting back for the overcharge, the cashier returned the money back to us.

The restaurant gets really packed with hungry diners after 6.00 pm. It's advisable to ring or walk in to reserve a table in advance. During the wedding months, it is harder to secure a table for dinner. It's easier to get a table during lunch hour.
