I have been away a long time and we had only two nights in Penang. As third generation Nyonya ourselves, my sister and I had to pay homage to the best of the best. A quick check on Google pointed to this little unassuming restaurant in Aboo Siti Lane. We ordered ALL the must-haves* and we weren't disappointed to say the least. All the dishes delivered all the punches. I rate this place top marks for authenticity and keeping up to the old standards. Well done!

The food reminds me of my beloved mother's cooking. So yummy. Reservation is required as the place is not that big.

My friends visited here last year and all look forward to the meal here again this trip. As it is named, the food is so motherly. I like the fish meat in the sour soup and the fish wrapped in the leave the most. And the pork in the dark and sour souce is also impressive.
