Food: Hawker food at Kedai Makanan Hong Kong Tea Garden, Penang

This is one of the random place we crashed in the attempt to find ochien (fried oyster omelette) because we were hunting for the famous ochien in Penang but both were closed down or sold out. Pfft...

Lotsa food can be found here.

Mi hun with fried fish fillet. The mi hun was surprisingly good although it looked so simple lol. 

What I know as 'har mee' in KL is Penang's Hokkien mee. Nothing bombastic. 

Penang's chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll) comes with chilli, sweet sauce and also the signature hae ko (shrimp paste). So far the usual cheee cheong fun in KL does not come with hae ko. Hae ko is commonly found in the Malaysian Chinese fruit rojak.

This..I did not touch. Lol. Duck soup mixed with random parts of duck I guess.

The hunt for ochien was successful here. Yum yum. This plate of ochien has small oysters (some serve large ones) but the serving is generous. But I find that the omelette is a bit little, maybe should add an egg or two.

This small serving of char koay teow cost RM3.50! Commercialized price. Lol. Anyway, I just had a random thought. Someone should do a char koay teow challenge in Penang. Try all the char koay teow that is available in Penang. :x 

Ikan bakar! Quite pricey but it's tasty.  


  1. I never paid rm3.50 for a penang char koay teow before in my life... it's so expensive in KL or even Sabah. The ochien looks good! I still prefer the dark hokkien mee cantonese style, don't really like singapore or penang version of hokkien mee :)

    1. Haha but the portion for RM3.50 was really small though! Standard price in KL I guess is about RM5 now for hawker :( Yeah, the ochien is good :D Ahh, I see : )
