Jalan Kampong Malabar 日本新街 is more happening now due to opening of some new restaurants. One of them, however, is not new and already been there for decades. Hon Kei Food Corner 汉记小食店 previously was a stall in Ho Ping Coffee Shop at the junction of Penang Road and Jalan Kampong Malabar selling famous Bak Moi (Pork Porridge). Recently, it moved to its own premise few shops away.
The restaurant which we are going to share with you today is a bit special. Not only it is new, it is also “old” at the same time. The restaurant is nothing more than the Gou Lou (Hong Kee) Coffee Shop 高佬 (鸿记) 茶餐室 at Jalan Kampong Malabar (日本新街), George Town, Penang, Malaysia.
