Goh Huat Seng, one of the oldest Teochew restaurants in Penang has been in operation for more than fifty years .We reach around 7p.m and parking kinda hard to find if nearby and don't simply park at the illegal yellow line , the bandaraya her is active till 9 p.m , they will lock your wheel and leave a number to contact if you find out yours car been lock . just park abit far to avoid been lock Because I been seeing live when other vehicle been lock . We are lucky that still have table for three
We are lucky that still have table for three of us since the restaurant is pack .At Goh Huat Seng they count by plate , portion in one plate is very small and little . We order four plate with the price tag RM70 , What Do you think , isit worth ??
It is one of the oldest Teochew restaurants in Penang . Located at Kimberley Street , the traditional steamboat still comes lighted up with charcoal . traditional pots heated over charcoal with clear chicken soup as the soup base and ingredients including mushrooms, fish anf vegetable . Their steamboat comes with a variety of dishes, freshly cut and served . Goh Huat Seng has stuck strictly to traditions passed down through generations .
This place is with air-conditioned that will fell comfortable while steamboat-ing . Many locals and also visitors from here or outstation will visit this place and on weekends , this place is usually packed so the customers have to wait till empty table available .They even provide a mini fan that run on batteries to speed up the charcoal to burn . Traditional metal steamboat pots that looks antique that Only a few restaurants uses this type of pots . The steamboat pot with a bottom section where hot coals were placed , followed by a round trough that went around the bottom coal section , and then Fire coming from the middle to release hot air and flames .Blended chillie and garlic was a very important component of any hot pot meal . At Goh Huat Seng they only serve with sliced chilies and not a good component for the hot pot but there was one ingredient that really made the difference , the deep fried garlic need pour in the hot pot and makes the soup taste better . The soup broth was taste nice sweet after all the stuff been put in for a moment ago .
It’s not a street food cheap meal, that’s for sure, but I thought it was worth it for a traditional Chinese Malaysian steamboat with great exprience .
