  1. They are opening up a new Penang in Cherry Hill on Route 38; lots of work going on there when I drove past. Wonder if this has anything to do with it?

      According to the Inquirer Food Blog that while the families owning it are distantly related, they are different management, Perhaps it is in reaction to more competition... remember there are two other Malaysian/Indonesian restaurants in Chinatown now, so Penang doesn't own the space anymore.

    2. actually its a classic Chinatown sign. They apologize for any "incontinence"

            I did tech support for years and it took me a week to figure this out. Enjoy!
