8 Days mag just recommended a Penang laksa restaurant at Novena Ville, opp Novena church. Near the Wee Nam Kee chicken rice. Its signature dish is the Penang laksa with kembong fish. The hae ko is from Penang. Boss is from Penang too.

There's also Gurney Drive restaurant at AMK Jubilee centre (central) selling Penang cuisine. Never tried it but it seems very crowded.

A friend of mine recommended one in Geylang, near Aljunied mrt. It was featured in yesterday's Sunday Times.

The one in AMK is not that good. They do however import tau sar peah from Ghee Hiang if you are a fan of Ghee Hiang. Personally I am a Him Heang fan.

The York Hotel Penang Hawker Buffet is back till Mar 27. They have Penang laksa. But you'll have to eat the rest of the food at the buffet to make it worth your while...

schweppes,

It's $25.80++ weekdays and $28.8-++ weekends. No credit card promos. (see details here: http://www.acepent.com/ep/rx.php?eid=73&uid=79430&t=885&auth=868190586 )

They come about 3 times a year - Mar, Sep and Dec. Can't remember if they come in June. Anyway, always coincides with term break. I look forward to it because it reminds me of my childhood holidays which were always spent in Penang!

The portions are small, so you can eat all the dishes, or (like me) concentrate on your favourites... getting older so metabolism slowing down. Cannot eat all anymore! I love the assam laksa, prawn mee, char kway teow, ban chang kueh, chendol and rojak.
