Khoon Pastry House @ Jalan Argyll, Penang

As we all know, Penang has been flooded with so many cafes and restaurants that people are confused with so many options they have when they come to think of lunch or dinner. 
There are so many nostalgic places that have been left forgotten by many as people are so familiar with some places that they would never think of them when it comes to suggested places to eat. 

Khoon Pastry House located in Jalan Argyll Penang is one of the many cafes that most people have forgotten. They are still one of the best restaurants to dine when you are located for some classic and authentic Hainan food like Hainanese Chicken Chop, Hainanese Spring Roll, Hainanese Chicken Rice and etc. 

The restaurant is so nostalgic and cozy, just like the olden days where your parents or grandparents will bring you to a kopitiam and enjoy a glass of coffee and piece of cake. The restaurant is quite small and only limited seats available hence it may be a bit crowded during lunch or dinner hours. 

Khoon Pastry House has a limited menu featuring some Hainanese dishes, one of them is their Hainanese Chicken Rice(RM13.90) with very smooth, juicy and succulent steamed chicken served with fragrant rice and paired with Hainanese chili sauce which was just perfect.

If you know Hainanese food, you will surely know that Hainanese Spring Roll(RM8.00) is one of the most popular snacks with the stir-fried jicama wrapped in spring roll skin and then deep fried it, served with lea & perrins sauce and chopped chili. 
This is my favourite side dish since I was young and still I will order this whenever I visit Khoon Pastry House. 

My top favourite dish in Khoon Pastry House will be none other than the Hainanese Chicken Chop(RM17.90) which served exactly like how it should be, with the mix vege, onion and tomatoes.
By far this is one of the best Hainanese Chicken Chop I've tasted yet. The sauce is perfectly like what I've had when I was young and there were a lot of western food stalls that serve Hainanese Chicken Chop. 

One of the must try dishes in Khoon Pastry House would be none other than their signature Shepherd's Pie. We ordered the Chicken Shepherd's Pie(RM19.90) and there will be a 20 minutes waiting time as they will prepare this dish upon order. 
The mash on top of the dish was toasted perfectly and it was smooth, perfect to go with the chicken fillings. 

Like how the restaurant is named, Khoon Pastry House is specialised in making traditional pastries, something that you don't often get to see anymore in kopitiam or any other pastry house these days. 
We tried the Cup Cake(RM4.00), Butter Moon Cake(RM4.00), Sliced Fruit Cake(RM3.00) and Sliced Coconut Candy(RM2.50). 
These pastries may not be the best but the nostalgic feelings is still priceless as you may hardly see these type of pastry anymore. 

For those who really like some good food and cozy, nostalgic cafe, Khoon Pastry House is where you should visit in Penang. Don't let this type of cafe be forgotten and bring your parents or grandparents over where I'm sure it will bring back some memories to them.
