Wong Kok Kitchen, now this franchise is a familiar name in Malaysia, and it so happened that I dropped by one of its restaurant outlet in Prangin Mall, Penang with my family last weekend. We were quite tired from all the shopping done so any restaurant with a comfy atmosphere with nice seats was welcomed immediately.

I found the location of Wong Kok Kitchen quite unique as it was a hanging structure on the 3rd floor with an open overhead space. My father was quite worried that someone from the upper floors would throw something down and hit us. I informed him the chances of it happening were low as the upper floors grills were far away from where we were sitting.

|The menu which were quite confusing at times|
One thing I have to note, the menus that came to us were in so many pieces that we were so confused and did not know what to order. Coupled with the fact that the meals had promotions which if we were to add a further RM 4.90 we would be getting a drink, soup and dessert. Confusing as hell but we managed to order eventually. Check out some of the pictures I managed to snap of our meal that night.
|Grilled Pork Chop Meal - RM 10.50|
|Grilled Pork Chop with Spaghetti - RM 10.50|
|Japanese Curry Fried Rice - RM 6.50|
|Luncheon Meat with Fried Egg Rice - RM 9.50|
|Chinese Tea - RM 1.40|
I'm going to show what are we got for RM 4.90 add-on (the drink, soup and dessert). It was quite worth it as we saved on the cost of the drinks. Check it out below.
|Iced Milo (included in the RM 4.90 add-on)|
|Chinese Soup (included in the RM 4.90 add-on)|
|Dessert, ice cream with cake (included in the RM 4.90 add-on)|
|Iced Milk Tea (included in the RM 4.90 add-on)|
Overall it was a good meal, but I was kind of disappointed with the taste of the food. Somehow the food does not live up to the standards that Penang Food has attained. Also, the tables were rather cramped. There were 5 of us at the table, but I keep hitting the leg of my brother who was sitting immediately in front of me. To sum it up, good meal, not great, filling but not satisfying.
