The menu is huge and it was busy so I let the lady who was taking care of the outside cue (they are very busy at peak hours) to make suggestion and it was great as always. Traditional food coming in big generous portions for very reasonable money. Rice is 1 RM and herbal home made ice tea was also around 1 RM mark.
The duck was 25 RM.

Big tables fitting at least 10 ppl. The food is really tasty , authentically local & served hot. The drinks are Ok only, pretty standard around town. You can ask the guy to recommend dishes to you. They're great. Friendly etc. Watch out.. Certain days they are closed... I think it's either Monday or Wednesday

Went to Tek Sen on the recommendation of a Malaysian friend. We reached at about 6.15pm, and thankfully managed to get a table immediately. Ordered the signature pork (really good!), signature tofu, sambal kang kong, salt and pepper squid and fried sweet potato leaves. Food was above average, one of the better meals we had in Penang. Do go early though! When we left at 7plus there was a queue of about 15 people

Going to Penang always means eating at Tek Sen. Great lemon chicken, delicious bean sprout. Location is easy to reach and people are fun. Even queuing I don't mind here as people are entertaining.

We went for the star items - roast pork with chili padi, tofu and assam fish - all nicely done, top quality zichar. Is it really that spectacular? I was staying in the area and popped in for a takeaway. Not sure if it's worth the trip for those outside Georgetown - you can find lots of good food elsewhere in Penang
