Dimsum steamed just right and not oversteamed till the skin fall off or becomes gooey. My favourite is the pork roll, which is found very rare, thinly sliced pork rolled round a small piece of turnip, pig liver and pig fat steamed in chinese wine.

It is my first breakfast at this Hoe Aik Restaurant. Food is delicious. We have a great fellowship with family in this restaurant. Ambience for this restaurant is quite nice. I will come again next time family trip to Pulau Pinang.
