Hock Chuan Heong, Macallum Flat, Penang

My local friend called it the "Oh shop" or oysters house, as the name itself tells you that their speciality is oysters. He we arrived there around 12pm, the place already super crowded, not only that, with limited parking, we were lucky to get one after 2nd round of searching.

Since we plan to eat 5 meals or more a day, we only ordered 3 dishes to try. The oyster fried Tong Fun or glass noodle. The skillful chef cook this dish in perfection. I have nothing to complain, it's just that oysters given is too small...haha... 8/10

The deep fried battered prawn, fresh prawns, nicely battered, lovely! A perfect dish for those who love crispy stuff! 9/10

Last but not least, the stir fry bean curd with leeks and prawns recommended by them. This dish is ok, but nothing much to shout about. 5/10

Total damage including one pot of chinese tea is RM48.
The food was decent& MSG level was low, indeed my cup of tea! I will definitely go back for the noodles, as I wanted to try the hokkien noodle as well. I saw next table ordered steamed fish, seems to be very tasty.

Nice, home-cooked food. CK Lam highly recommended this one, but we did not have enough time to try this.
