A really good post about Penang.

Filled with minimalist furniture and homey peaceful dining atmosphere, Lim MaMa Taiwanese Food 林妈妈台式手作美食 at Lorong Carnarvon is the place where you can find classic, home-cooked style Taiwanese delights in town. The menu is small but good enough to satiate your cravings for Taiwanese food- dishes are affordably priced and the serving portion is hearty. The seating capacity is limited and less accommodating for big groups at Lim MaMa’s place so if you are planning a group visit there, do make your reservations earlier.

Lim MaMa did the classic Taiwanese Egg Rolls well- the Egg Rolls were thin and soft with bold Egg aroma… a pity that the thick Soy Sauce was a little less-exciting. Probably due to the home-cooked factor, they somehow toned down the saltiness… which resulted the dish a little less-satisfying. For mains, we had both Cold Noodles and Zha Jiang Mian; both were alright and the noodles were expertly cooked to the right texture. The Cold Noodles possessed a bold Garlicky flavor but the acidity from the Vinegar killed the dish and was a little overly sour towards the end. Another side order- Pork Dumplings in Chili Oil was nothing out of the ordinary, the Chili Oil lacked the distinctive fragrance (importantly Peppercorn was missing). But for Rm 6.50, we’ve got 8 dumplings and we could not complain for that price.
