      Excellent reporting SC, thanks for the laugh on this gray January day. What were you doing awake at 5 am anyway?

        moved back to the burbs. hour commute to west philly so I can yell at rotten kids all day. Lemme see if I can figure out how to get the photos of the sign off my phone...

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

              I thought you were joking about the message! Hysterical!

        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.
