First Famous Restaurant on Lorong Susu is one of the well known places in Penang for its good variety of roast meat and Pei Pa Duck. This version of Pei Pa duck is fragrant and has an interesting crispy texture as the duck is heated up in hot oil before serving.
No meal is complete without the complimentary bowl of preserved vegetable soup (chai boey). The soup is rich in flavour, with a sensation of sour and spiciness and strong fragrance of lemongrass and ginger.
There are other selection of meats to choose from, including Char Siew (barbecued pork) and Siew Bak (roast pork). The Char Siew is coated generously with the barbecue sauce giving the meat a hint of sweetness. The most aromatic pieces would be the sides which are slightly singed and charred.
Besides the standard Siew Bak and Char Siew, First Famous Restaurant also offers steam and roast chicken. The accompanying homemade brown and chilli sauce complements the meat.
First Famous Restaurant is operated by Mr.Chan who has been selling the assorted roast meat for the past twelve years! The shop located beside Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Center is packed during lunch hour. In the evening you will find Mr Chan manning his stall in Pantai Timur Cafe in Paya Terubong, Air Itam. Both outlets are closed every alternate Monday.
