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.

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)

Early Sunday morning and do not know where to head for breakfast. After take a drive around for 15 minutes then my friend come accross this place and saw, eh eh, try this stall, it was one of the stall that I used to eat during college times which is pretty famous. Then I agree since I have never tried this. Bridge Head Hokkien Mee & Loh Mee

loh Mee (1)

After Google up a few article only came across to know that this Hokkien Mee stall is actually quite authentic in taste as the recipe had pass down from previous generation. The family had started selling since 1963 by the Lau family and currently, its 2nd generation that  selling at the moment..

loh Mee (2)

The stall is located at a very obvious junction if you are taking the Jelutong Expressway exit towards Prangin Mall, its a pre-war building right at the corner of the traffic light that you can see people actually sitting there and eat.

It had been a while since I had my last bowl of Loh Mee, and to say that Penang Loh Mee and KL Loh Mee is pretty different as Penang version is black starchy gooey soup base they have. To make the taste even better you have to add in special garlic sauce that every loh mee stall created for themselves and this stall had make it quite strong in taste as you just add abit and some of the chili would be perfect.

Next we order another bowl of Hokkien Mee to share and I add in Pork Ribs. Soup base is rich in flavour as you can taste it with pork bone and prawn heads they have cook for quite a while. A pretty decent bowl of breakfast to go after.

I still say, I prefer other stalls.  No harm to try this out .. 😉
