People’s court, Cintra street

Boey Chong Kee in People’s Court on Cintra Street in Georgetown, Penang has been around for as long as I can remember. It’s located on the ground floor of some low cost flats.

It’s a family run Chinese coffee shop serving home cooked food. I haven’t been here in forever but I remember the place well. My parents used to take us here all the time as a child. Happy memories.

I’m so glad it’s still here and as popular as ever. I arrived at 9pm for a late dinner with my brother and some friends but was turned away by the lady running it. She said, I’m sorry, we have run out of food. That’s how popular this place is. I guess people still eat early here.
