Teik Sen information
At first glance this open cafe looks like any other popular Chinatown establishment. On closer look you'll notice that patrons are dressed up - button shirts and high heels. Once you try the food you'll understand. This is a step up from the everyday delicacies of Chinatown - just when you thought it couldn't get better, it did.
There's a menu translated into English but chances are you'll be the only one among the tightly packed throngs who needs it. Try the curry prawns, crispy chicken with plum sauce or fried eggplant with bean paste. The adventurous can try other specialities like the braised sea cucumber and fish maws. Arrive early for either lunch or dinner, unless you want to wrestle a local for a table. Located just steps away from Lebuh Chulia.
