Chu Char next to Shell Station along Pengkalan Weld, Penang

Whenever we passed by this chu char stall next to the Shell Petrol Station in Pengkalan Weld, it is always full of people. Especially when it is at dinner time. So hubby and I marked down this place in our "makan list" for quite some time. Then during one weekend, my gal wanted to have chu char, so we decided to give it a try.
We are not sure what they are offering and ask for some recommendation and we ended with the following dishes:
Watercress Soup
Ah....... when there are watercress soup, my gal will automatically asked for one. And the watercress soup is very nice. As usual, my gal consumed most of this.
Stir fry vegetables with garlic

Deep Fried Promfret with BBO sauce
When hubby heard that they have deep fried promfret with BBQ sauce.....he looked at me and I knew that he wanted to try. As we never try the deep fried fish with BBQ sauce. Well.... the texture and freshness of the fish is very nice and indeed delicious. As for the sauce, my gal found it a bit spicy for her.

Tom Yam Bean Curd
This is one of their famous dishes according to the auntie that take our order. And since we never try tom yam bean curd before, we decided to try. Actually we are so curious to find out what is that. If you are fond of lots of herbs, combination of tom yam and bean curd, then you will sure to savor this dish. However, we found that the aroma is too strong for us. ^-^

I notice that you mention the word "chu char" quite often. What does it mean? Is it a kind of dish or what?
