Best Green Curry Chicken in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Think of curry and you’ll habitually imagine tawny and reddish hued gravy filled with assorted ingredients. Think a little more and what pops up next is green curry, an authentic Thai delicacy that has travelled beyond boundaries. Besides being visually arresting, the symmetry of spicy, savoury and creaminess leaves a taste-bud tingling experience. And to answer your curiosity, the green colour comes from fresh green chillies and at times cilantro. Usually, chunks of chickens and handful of vegetables are liberally filled in the broth, and all you need is a mound of steaming white rice. Heavy on flavours and easy on your wallet, these restaurants are a gem for Thai cuisine where green curry chicken is among their pillars.

    Black Canyon

    Housed in Gurney Plaza, Black Canyon offers a more sophisticated and spacious atmosphere with options that spoils you to silly, both Thai and local dishes. Big in portion and bigger on flavours, their green curry chicken is a real winner. The slurp-worthy dish is filled generously chockfull with vegetables and tender chunks of chickens. Feel free to grace up your table with other Thai delicacies too, yet if you’re on a budget, a mound of white rice is all you need to go along the greenish goodness. Not into rice? Their green curry spaghetti is equally gratifying too.

    Khun De Thai Restaurant

    A real gourmet treasure that any Thai food aficionado can never afford to miss. Located at the heart of Jelutong, it can be easily spotted with a thatched roof façade and cosy interior constantly teeming with patrons. Portions are pretty generous and flavours never disappoint, therefore, it’s wise to wear stretchy pants. An absolute must-have on the menu is their green curry chicken which bombards your palate with subtle savoury and spicy balance. The broth is a little thinner in texture yet the strong basil flavour and a hefty amount of chicken and vegetables round up a drool-inducing bowl.
