Some time ago, a friend mentioned that there is a Raja Uda's Tomyam shop in Penang. In Asia Cafe. So, we found a perfect night to try it out! And what better time to go when all our friends suddenly 'ppk-ed' us on the night we were craving for tomyam and wanted to go to Heng Heng's! (which you can also see our review here!) :)
Same thing in Raja Uda, they have lots and lots of items to choose to go inside the amazing spicy soup, ranging from seafood to non-seafood. They even have razor shells, a type of shellfish.

(1 Taiwan sausage, 10 pieces of meatballs, 6 strips of abalone)
He says: Sweet type of tomyam like the original one from Raja Uda. Okok la.. The only bad thing is that it is a bit oily. Anyhow, it is a lot cheaper compared to the one from original one from Raja Uda!
She says: I usually don't prefer maggi mee simply cos then the soup will have that maggi mee taste.
(5 strips of abalone, 7 pieces of deep fried fish fillets, minced meat)
He says: This is more like a sticky ball porridge. Haha. Sweeet and sour enough =) Prefer tomyam maggie!
She says: Like this one better. The soup actually tasted quite nice, but a different kind. It's more to a sweet and a bit of spicy sour type. To say I love it, not really but to say I hate it, also not really. So, I'm a lot of somewhere in the middle for this one. LOVE the abalone though! and the fried fish, nicely fried and doesn't smell funny :) Will I visit this shop again? Certainly yes.
