Tek Sen is a very special Chinese restaurant in George Town, Malaysia offering a range of cuisine styles including Hakka, Teochew, Cantonese and Straits. The bright, yellow-walled open space is welcoming, the staff are very efficient and pleasant and the food is cooked with a great deal of skill and imagination.
It started life as a roadside stall quite close to the current location and recently has moved to the current location on Carnarvon.
It is very easy to find as there is always a queue outside. Simply join the queue and you won't have to wait for too long. You might be seated at a shared table if they are busy, but everyone enjoys themselves so much that it is always interesting.
Try the wonderful eggplant with fermented bean paste, the tofu dish topped with salted fish and the pork with chilli padi which are just some of the standout dishes available here. We also loved a dish of stuffed pigs trotter braised in black vinegar which was meltingly tender, unctuous and downright delicious.
