Penang Restaurant with a taste of Borneo For a taste of the Borneo particularly from The Land of Hornbills, House of Kolo Mee is a Penang restaurant that has more than a handful variety to offer. Located at the commercial block of D'Piazza Mall, this recent food establishment is a great choice for a budget meal, certainly something decent and inexpensive for Penangites!
All of us agree that nothing comes free in this world. This restaurant however helps you to stretch every cent in the dollar you paid for their Kolo Mee. Expect basic, no frills. If you're a frequent flyer with AirAsia, this is an exact match for a restaurant version. Food, drinks, cutlery and almost everything are self service. Free fresh air at which means a non air-conditioned restaurant. Tables and stools are more or less of the hawker center's standard. Having said that, they are a notch better in term of order management. They run based on a computerized system.
If you happen to walk in for the first time, do not only gaze on their huge menu on the wall. That's the only menu in this Penang restaurant, so make sure you find what you want. Besides the huge instruction above the menu, you can also make an order after reading the instruction glued on top of each table. There is no waitstaff that would come over to entertain you (unless if you have no idea to use their system, I think :)). Next, queue up to place your order, collect the printout and wait for your queue to be called. Grab a seat or help yourself with a drink, from water, herbal tea, honey green tea or lemon tea. Each drink costs RM1 and it is a free flow. Collect your dishes once your queue number is flashed on the LED display near the collection counter. After filling up your tummy and ready to walk off, please remember to make payment :)
Sophisticated Penang RestaurantHouse of KoloMee features 6 choices of Kolo Mee from original, original soup, added Chicken, vegetarian, braised combo to with seafood. I grabbed one of their value added offer - Braised Combo at which is served with a halved bean curd, two pieces of braised chicken and 'uniflavor' kolomee. It costs RM4.50 for a small and RM5 for a large. My partner picked Original Kolo Mee in soup, more or less of a traditional version.
In less than 15 minutes our number was flashed on the LED display. Prompt. Their servings were not small compared to the average size of Penang food. Neither too large, just perfect for us. Taste and flavor were somehow lacking. Lack of yum. We concluded that they were not up to par if we were to compare with the similar dishes at Carpenter Street Cafe though they were originally 'brothers'. Despite of that, I was impressed with their operation primarily computerized and self-service. What they save on overhead apparently is returning to the diners at which making this eatery affordable and competitive. Sometimes, simple is great :)
Business Hours: 11am - 3pm & 5:30pm to 9pm daily except Monday.
