Sri Weld Food Court @ Beach Street

Written by Lingzie

Topics: Penang Hawker Food

One of my favourite places to go to for Nasi Lemak (the cheap wrapped in banana leaf type) is Sri Weld Food Court along the busy Beach Street. The Nasi Lemak Ali there is located right at the front of the hawker centre and what makes it so excellent is the fiery hot sambal!

Every time I eat it, I will need to have a glass of water on standby next to me, to douse my burning tongue. But I love it all the same because the sambal is just to fragrantly yummy!

I recently visited Sri Weld Food Court again and noticed that Nasi Lemak Ali now retails at RM1.20 a packet for the ‘bilis telur’ (anchovies and egg) variety. It used to be only RM1! Also, they now have the fish and prawns variety (RM1.50 and RM1.80).

After tasting it again after a long while, I noticed that the sambal isn’t so hot anymore! Maybe they’ve gotten feedback from their customers and changed the recipe a lil’. But thankfully it still tastes good!

Another favourite of mine which is no stranger to many, is the famous Beef Koay Teow soup. Big bowls of koay teow (either soup or dried) with lots and lots of beef slices, beef balls and intestines (I usually tell the man not to give me this as I’m not of fan of them).

A ‘small’ bowl (which is pretty big in my opinion) will set you back RM6. You also have a choice to substitute the koay teow for rice. This beef koay teow is similar to the stall along Perak Road.

Some claim that the stall in Perak Road is better but I honestly can’t taste the difference.

So the next time you find yourself along Beach Street, do drop by for some really good nasi lemak and beef koay teow. Sri Weld Food Court currently also provides free Wifi service and is also home to many many other hawker stalls.

    Time to hunt for the new best Nasi Lemak in town. I honestly felt the one at Sri Weld has lost much of its spice and coconuty punch the last time I tried it.
