A great article on Penang Malaysia.

If you do like a bowl of solid, classic Chinese noodles, you have to put Ichi Tong 一桐 on your radar. This new restaurant is associated with Kochabi Double Content previously located at Penang Times Square and has a cafe-like interior decor but the menu has a list of solid Asian-Taiwanese dishes (though mostly noodle dishes). Expect to find Taiwanese-style Beef Noodles or Sze Chuan-influenced Ma-La Noodles or the local Fish Meat Noodles; prices are mid-average but the dining atmosphere is comfortable and the food quality is promising… definitely worth checking out.

Start with the Signature Beef Tok Tok which our choice of noodle was Wan Ton Noodles, the broth was thick and rich, with a bold Tomato flavor and a touch of sweetness. There were chunks of Beef, braised Radish and some Beef Balls. It was quite comfortable on the palate and we were happy with the lovely al-dente texture of the noodles. A contrary to the boldly-flavored Beef Noodles… the Fresh Tiger Grouper Mi Shua with Tomato Milk Soup registered milder flavors (but not that it was under-seasoned). The thickly cut Grouper meat was fresh and overall, we thought it was a decent bowl of Fish noodles. The Dumplings were alright, nothing out of the ordinary. A place with some solid noodle choices.
