Double Good Restaurant (Bayan Lepas)

If you think you have tasted some of the best prawn curries in Penang or Malaysia, do consider this. Your gastronomic repertoire wont be complete without ever trying the prawn curry at Double Good restaurant. Or cheesy mussels. Or the roasted chicken. The list goes on. Double Good restaurant specialises in Chinese cuisine. It is located close to Bukit Jambul complex at the shop lots along Jalan Tun Dr.Awang (Sg.Nibong Kecil) in Bayan Lepas.

I would certainly recommend the prawn curry as this dish certainly stands out. It's thick and creamy unlike most prawn curries in Penang and more importantly, the prawns are big and fresh. Fried salted fish are added in too to give added flavour.

The mussels in bake cheese is another dish that you do not want to miss. It's baked in such a way that the cheese wasn't burnt or browned. It retains the right viscosity so that the cheese melts straight in your mouth. Like most dishes here, fried salted fish is added on top as a final garnish.

The fried kai lan is also very nice. It's deep fried and then diced into small pieces. Finally, fried anchovies are generously sprinkled on top.

I also like the roasted chicken which needs to be order as least a day before hand. It's roasted till the skin is completely crispy but at the same time, it still retains the tenderness of the chicken meat.

Another all time favourite is the bean curd in soy sauce and fried salted fish. This adds another dimension in taste to the white rice.

The stir fried vegetables is very nice too. It's cooked with lots of chopped garlic which gives it quite a wonderful flavour.

This dish is probably the first time I tried at this restaurant. It's actually marinated pork coated in nestum. Most people will find this slightly dry.

As a summary, the food at Double Good is really good. We enjoyed every dish that we ordered and the price is just right. For those of you interested to make a visit there soon, here are the details of the restaurant:

I am bowled over by the picture of the prawns! I am imagining the curry heavily lacing white rice... and I'm not even a huge rice fan! Double, triple, quadruple good indeed!

penangtuapui - sorry that you experienced bad service there. The service I encountered so far has been great. The place is also busy so sometimes its can be a bit chaotic.

550ml jar of faith - the prawn curry was simply wonderful. I'm still dreaming about it today.

tom aarons - It would be nice if someone thought of a contraception where you can smell while viewing pictures from the Net. That way you save yourself a monitor :). The aroma from the curry was just fanstatic.
