Restaurant Yoong Kee @ Bukit Mertajam, Penang

Talk about restaurant that got really long history, and this will definitely be one of them! Restaurant Yoong Kee had been here at Jalan Pasar, Bukit Mertajam ever since when my mum was in her early working days, if her memory servers her right…….

The restaurant is small and old, but this never stopped people from coming to them. However, since it’s always packed, I really had to complained that it’s not really fun to have dinner there especially these days when the weather is god damned hot! All of us were sweating badly and we swear on them inside our heart on why they don’t want to invest a bit more on fan to make their customer feel more comfortable. It might be better if we came later, but since we arrive there around 6pm, the sun is still godly bright and awesomely hot…..grrr!

However, they do serve some nice Teochew food, luckily.

We start our hot dinner with a good bowl of hot pork and peanut soup. It taste good, and only if pork tail was used instead of pork ribs and lean meat. 6.5/10

Hock Chuan Heong, although it’s located at the ground floor of some old flats, but it still manage to pull a huge crowd to it every afternoon, mainly due to it’s oyster dishes.

Oyster noodle, 1 of their signature dish here. You can opt for all oyster or mix with some seafood. I absolutely love the noodle here, its very smooth, and the gravy is just great. Besides, the seafood used are fresh too, which makes another big plus for it. 7.9/10
