Precious Taste Restaurant off Jalan Burma

We used to scout around Burma road area for nice food previously but never got a chance to post it. Now as we do some housekeeping on our food pics, we stumbled upon some past records that makes our mouth water again...One of them is Precious Taste Restaurant.



Hidden in the small lane off Burma Road (opposite Yataimura), there is this little restaurant where there is a lot of Japanese expat like to hangout for lunch. The chef is from Penang who married a Chinese wife and both had worked in Japan for some time. Then they decided to come back to Penang and start up their own restaurant. Sometimes if you are lucky, you'll catch the wife happily chatting away with the Japs in perfect Japanese before asking you what would you like to have your lunch in China's mandarin accent.

So what's the specialty of the restaurant? Siu Long Pau!
It is quite delicious with hot soup pouring out from the mini pau when you take a bite. Mouth watering, really...


Tie Guo is not bad too..


We ordered fried kailan,


and deep fried soft shell crabs...


Not to mention the yummy braised pork with salted fish


and finally the long bean stir fried in minced pork


And if all these doesn't fit your taste, you can always try the alternative menu set..


Now, what can we say....truly precious

Updates: We wanted to pay it a visit in May 2010, but this place was shut down.

:P~~ My saliva did not drip, it's flooding the floor. Hehe. Thanks for reminding me that I should pay them a visit again soon.

By the way, the road is called Lintang Burmah. I did a review for Ramen Wang there not long ago. The food there so so only as the ramen is machine made.
