Fried Oyster

Browsing

Usually when I am back Penang, a week before I will bug my friend to bring me nice places to eat or their latest discover, (sounds like I am a foreigner or outstation guest). Restaurant Hock Chuan Heong is one of the place that they usually will pop by for lunch is this traditional Hokkien dishes in Macallum Street here.(I used to stay here for 7 years, didnt know such shop existed.)

Oyster (1)

For those who are not familiar around the area, it would be tricky to locate it as its hidden behind a row of shop house that Pos Office Malaysia would be the landmark.

Oyster (2)

This place its famous for its authentic Hokkien dishes especially on their Oyster series. Its super pack during lunch time and it is advisable to do early lunch.

Oyster (3)

All the dish serve up pretty fast and this is what happen when you have 2 girls very hungry and cant wait for me to complete taking the picture first by snapping some of it first.. 😀

Oyster (4)

One of the dishes that must have is their classic Fried Oyster (Oh chien) . In most of the version that we have is either crispy or starchy and back to traditional its starchy. Fried to aromatic and dipping with their special chili sauce that makes it taste even better.

Oyster (5)

I cannot remember when is the last time I had this dish, that it was too long ago, that it used to be one of my grandma’s favorite dish. Found back the authenticity place for it, Oh Mee (Oyster Noodle) comes with generous ingredients and the gravy is slightly mild and find that noodle is over cook that make it too soft. Overall its not bad that many old people will sure love this taste.

Oyster (6)

This is Tau Kua Suan Na dish is fried and cooked with lots of leeks, added with little 5 spices powder to bring up the taste a little more. Gravy is nice and pour it onto rice, is good~

If you are looking for some authentic food then this is one of the place to hunt for. One of the set back of this location is limitation of Parking and best to park around Post Office area and walk towards behind it, or residential around that area.

Remark: The owner is a quite lansi (arrogant)

If you are in Taiwan, and you love street food or some street shopping and enjoy bargaining then, there is one place that you must not miss. It is not only famous to tourist but also locals, most of the time, this night market is sardine packed with people and if you do go there during their summer break or school holiday you can just expect to be push around. Shilin Market is one of the biggest and most famous night market in Taipei District. Easy access from public transportation that you can stop by at Shilin Night Market Station and the night market is located just opposite it.

shilin

This is one of the biggest junction that I have came accross. Lets start off with our very first food hunting. Please be aware that this post involves alot of food and drinks that might harm your eye sight and make a lil damage on your stomach.

shilin (2)

Fish ball and fried squid for that kind of size, guess how much you have to pay? Its chewy, very cripsy from the outside.

shilin (3)

shilin (4)

Then we got introduce that there is one of the best fried chicken among so many stalls in this area which is stall no 5+. Once you walked into this big food market you will see a long que and that would certainly be the fried chicken stall.

shilin (5)

shilin (6)

Nono and Jennifer were helping us to be in the line while we were busy taking pictures. It took us about 15 minutes wait because the people in the line just do not buy one, at least 3 pcs per pax.

shilin (7)

For such a huge piece of crispy fried chicken it cost only NT50

shilin (8)

After buy it, we were brought inside the food market and I got shock to see how many food stalls are there cramping in this area. So pack and so many food to see. That makes it more than 500 food stalls around this area itself which have not include the main shopping streets of Shilin streets there.

shilin (9)

We were brought to stall 441 which is recommended by Mary’s brother and his friend that this stall serve good Fried Oyster or ‘Oh Jian’

shilin (10)

Besides selling that, they also do have smelly/sticky taufu available in fried or spicy soup version.

shilin (11)

Spicy soup version.

shilin (12)

Fried version.

shilin (13)

Fried oyster here is certainly different from what we have in Malaysia but its something similar. Ours will taste abit jelly’ish but theirs is more on beaten egg that pours on top of the hot plate, fried and wraps it.

shilin (14)

The main difference is that they do add on sauce on top of the Fried Oyster. The sauce turns out to be good, spicy, smooth in texture with a bit of lime sour eat along with the smooth fried oyster is something I do not mind to have the whole plate alone.

shilin (15)

Oyster in there are moderate in size but for the price we are paying, we consider it cheap. One plate for around NT50 which have at least 6-7 oyster.

In Penang, most people consider it a food heaven that cannot be deny, that one of the hottest place to dine at night and you love to rob a dinner table for your family and friends, which is a very normal things to do in a coffee shop, then you must not miss one of the famous place to dine Bee Hooi Restaurant. A place where you can find simple hawker food enough to kill off your hunger and craving that filled with a few famous stall, with cheap food yet good.

Bee Hooi

If you come here during public holiday or weekends, you might have to be a efficient robber.

Bee Hooi (2)

A stall that I would not miss is this Frankie’s Pizza with in the standard menu, ‘Hawaiian Chicken, Tuna, Seafood, Mutton, and a few more. ‘

Bee Hooi (3)

One of my personal favourite in the stall is ‘Hawaiian Chicken or Mutton with extra cheeze topping’ yum~

Bee Hooi (4)

With my ‘Mutton Pizza with extra Cheeze’ RM 7-8 (Small) is well toast and ready to be eaten. Please do not compare the one with the restaurant as this is the kopitiam version as the crust might be thicker and hard a bit but after toast it well with well marinated ingrediant, its one of the best to get. Nice melted cheeze, with soft mince mutton with onion in it. Recommended~

Bee Hooi (5)

Bee Hooi (8)

For oyster’s lover, ‘Fried Oyster’ is one of the dish you would not want to miss. I find the fried oyster here is very classic, that fried it in soft layer with egg, mashed it a bit and top it up with Oyster. Its very aromatic and dipping it with the Chili, its just perfect.

Bee Hooi (9)

My plate of ‘Fried Oyster’ RM 6 as the price ranges from RM6-RM15

Bee Hooi (10)

One of the famous hawker in the kopitiam is this ‘Char Koey Teow’ stall run by the whole family, as the mom prepare the ingredient, the dad fried on it and the son deliver. You can be expected to wait from easily 10minutes to 30 minutes depending on the crowd as this mini hawker stall did feature in a few newspaper as seen in front of the stall which I forgot to snap it.

Bee Hooi (11)

One of the good ‘Char Koey Teow’ to make it delicious is by using charcoal to fried along and plate by plate to ensure the koey teow and the ingredient are fried evenly. To eat the best ‘Char Koey Teow’ is always must go along with ‘Duck Egg’ if the place do offer and fried with charcoal.

Bee Hooi (12)

My simple plate of ‘Char Koey Teow with Duck Egg’ RM4 which is my cheaper and nicer compare to the famous one Lorong Selamat. I do have big prawns too on my plate with well fried with wok hei, and dry with each koey teow is not that sticky and aroma of duck egg is well blend.

Bee Hooi (13)

Then my mom ate ‘Koey Teow Theng’ RM3 which is a simple dish which is definately taste alot better than most of the KL stalls.

Besides this mention above, there are other famous stall too, like the ‘Loh Mee’ and a few other stalls. . . With no complain that this kopitiam serve quite a good range of food, worth recommending.

When all thoughts about street food or hawker center, a street food which one of my real favorite that located in the heart of the city that covers variety nice food and also one of the place that most people would not want to miss is one of the classic and famous street, New Lane. The street is packed with side by side hawker and even some of the stalls are repeated with their very own originality and depends on your taste bud. Every stall enjoys their own customer.

New Lane

This place was sardin packed with tourist on my last dining outing there. When I was back for Chinese New Year, I visited this place twice as I did miss some of my favourite stalls and most of the stalls here worth to be recommended.

New Lane (2)

Even people from the west came by here to do their food shooting.

New Lane (3)

One of the stalls which is very famous or a signature of the street is the ‘Chu Chap Chuk’ with all the pig spare part hanging in the stalls and one of hawker that start operate around 5pm then you can see a lot of old and young came by to ta pau back. RM4-RM6

New Lane (4)

If you do not like Pig Spare Part porridge, then you can op of ‘Duck Porridge’ which is very good too, with its well roast duck meat chopped and added in it with the aromatic duck sauce.

New Lane (5)

Fried Oyster in this area is pretty good too, with its big oyster added on after deep fried egg base.

New Lane (6)

There are 2 ‘Wantan Mee Noodle’ that I like the difference is the noodle used. This stall the noodle tend to be not so springy but it has its own style and I like their ‘Sui Kow’

New Lane (7)

This is one of the best ‘Tong Sui’ that you can even customade the ingredient that you want. One of their signature is also the ‘Almond Soup with Yau Char Kuai’ and I believe the other stall that they are operating at Lebuh Kimberly.

New Lane (8)

The tong sui soup base which is cook to perfect taste that suits me because its not too sweet.

New Lane (9)

If you are looking to taste the local taste of ‘Char Koey Teow’ this stall had always been frying nonstop even I prefer to take it myself is even faster than sit and wait.

New Lane (10)

Deep fried with wok hei and its very cheap too compare to Lorong Selamat and to me it taste much better than there.

New Lane (11)

New Lane (12)

I just love the ‘Curry Mee’ from this stall, with is clear santan soup and home made chili that stir in it makes it extra umph and chili aromatic that mix well in it.

New Lane (13)

Even though here had been my favorite but I this would be my first time to try on ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ here but of course my still all time favourite is the one at Genting Kopitiam at Island Glades.

New Lane (14)

It was steam well soft, yet the traditional method is with har kou (prawn paste) and add some chili is good, and some people do eat it with oil and sesame. Another version of it.

New Lane (15)

If you are craving for ‘Ikan Pangang Bakar’ . . .

New Lane (16)

this stall really serve a nice pangang fish but its just that overprice.

New Lane (17)

‘Beef Ball Soup’ in this kopitiam served very good lembu soup base.

New Lane (18)

Strong taste of the soup yet with the cow spare part is something I cannot resist. Dipping it with chili sauce is just taste fantastic and there are people who actually pour the whole chili sauce into the soup, stir and eat it. RM4-RM8

New Lane (19)

Another stall of ‘Char Koey Teow’ which is located inside the kopitiam is my dad’s favourite but I do not really like it. (again depends on your taste bud) RM4.50

New Lane (20)

New Lane (21)

This stall ‘Wan Tan Mee’ we prefer to order the soup base instead of the dry one, another one of my favorite stall. It depends on my mood to go for which 1, sometimes I prefer the road side and sometimes I prefer this. Both is equally good. RM3

New Lane (22)

New Lane (23)

New Lane (24)

For desert wise, there are two stalls located at the end of the street which is nearby Sunway Hotel. One is the ‘Apong Telur’ and ‘Kuih Ketayap’ which is 5 pieces(can mix) for RM2.

New Lane (25)

And last my FAVOURITE ‘Apom Manis Stall’ which I had been patronizing since when I was a kid till now. I find it this is the best so far and it is even better than Apom Guan (located in front of Union Primary) and the owner which is very funny. This stall was started by his dad and now the son had took over.

New Lane (26)

There are 2 type of base which is the normal one (classic flavor) and the one with Pandan (aromatic in flavor)

New Lane (27)

As I always love the one in ‘Jagung’ and ‘Banana’ is not bad too. I just love how he added on the extra flavour on the kuih base as when I bite it, I can still bite on the tiny coconut slices in it that makes it very aromatic. I always ended up having 5 peices even I am very full.

Oyster King had been one of the latest additions to the miniature stall in The Gardens. Without getting invites from Coco (thank you), I did not even realize that there is a stall around there. Despite of the name, you can guess that something that they cook would involve oyster. Being a fan of small small oyster surely I am up for this. I just cannot take big juicy oyster like what have been offering at Japanese or Seafood buffet.

I was there early and it was the usual few that we always had the outing together and Coco is arranging with the owner for us to occupied the place. As the time pass, more and more people showed up and this is my very first review that we had so many blogger at one shot, so stim, till to the extend we occupied 90% of the place. Then we were like alamak, how she going to do business la~

This place not only offer ala cart, but they do offer in set meals.

I just love the clip so cute and hoping and silently thinking to plot steal it back.

It didn’t took long for the owner to prepare all the food.

If you are a big fan of ‘Fried Oyster’ as known as ‘Oo Chien’ (Hokkien) back in my hometown Pg, then you MUST NOT miss this. I have not eaten fried oyster for ages yet still hunting for it. Well fried till some sides of the egg are crispy, a lil spicy and sour that makes the taste blend in well topping up with fresh oyster in the end is something we keep eating. I ate 3 plates of this charge at RM6 per plate. Recommended~

‘Fried Carrot Cake’ that had always been one of my favorite too when I was young, remembered when I was young watch the street movie theater and eat this and rojak. Still wonders does it still happen now. I prefer the carrot cake to chopped into smaller pieces and add on more garlic but this is as good as it taste. Fried with wok hei, and the pieces are cook evenly. RM5

‘Teow Chew Fried Noodle’ RM6

‘Wun Chai Ko’

‘Pumpkin Cake’ RM5

‘Dried Oyster Glutinous Rice’ RM6

A friendly host like Ms.Joan is hard to find. Thanks for hosting us~

Towards end of the meal, Sidney plan to give Wilson another surprise so he went to buy a cake and Racheal being the person that have to hold and walk with the cake.
