西公园 @ Transfer Road, Penang

During one weekend, my gal told us that she wanted to have lunch while we were @ town. And she specifies that she wants to have some "Chu Char". Hubby has no idea where to have lunch around 1.30pm in the afternoon. As usually most of the place will wrap up their lunch hours in 30 minutes or so. Then suddenly...... I recall this shop ~ 西公园 @ Transfer Road, Penang.
For Map Location, please click here.
I never dine there before but hubby went there with my MIL for their fried rice before and told me that it tastes very delicious. My MIL also told me that it has the "Wok Hei". So since my gal wants to have chu char we decided to go there as the shop operates from 11am till late.
When we arrived there, there are only few tables of people but after we finished our order, more customers are visiting them. And by the time we leave, it is almost full house. ^o^
The uncle took our order asked us if we want any soups..... and after a range of soups the uncle named it..... we go for their
Cabbage Soup
The uncle was telling us. The cabbage soup "Ho Chiak". Kids will loves it. So we settle with the cabbage soup and the uncle is right. The soup tastes nice and sweet. My gal loves it very much and I lose count how many bowl of soup she gobbles up. ^o^ And there are many ingredients in the soup as well.
Soya Sauce Pork
Uncle also recommended this for my gal...... so we ordered this and give it a try. The pork is very thinly slices and tastes nice but hubby and I found it a bit salty to our liking. It is best to go with some white rice.
Fu Yong Omelette's
Hubby asked uncle whether there are any egg dishes? And uncle told us Fu Yong Omelette's. The Fu Yong Omelette's is very fragrant. It has a very nice aroma and it tastes nice but also a bit salty to our liking.
Assam Prawn
The last dish is the assam prawn and it tastes very nice and fresh.
Overall..... everyone of us is enjoying the meal there. And the price is very reasonable.

Food Paradise- I am so so so impressed with the 63 posts of CHU CHAs that you made. Happy eating n Happy Blogging , I happy cooking~~

Many custumers make special order of specifying thier taste. mild , salty , soury ,less oil, more hot n spicy. As long as the visit us frequently , they used to know our "standdard" taste and with thier requirement of adjust the taste to thier liking. Most of my colleague remember thier so called "member's" specified item and we are VERY willing to act as our regular customer's 2nd HOME Kitchen.

Thank Food Paradise by having this post and thank everybody by supporting See Kong Ooi, and looking forward to see you all.

p.s. If you see a very Fat guy , thats me , :) sorry for not doing any greetings to the table , when service time is on, I am always not that "clean" to get close to customers and I will politely keep some distance.
