O & N Cafe Shop @ Green Lane, Penang

Sorry that I am unable to update my blog so frequently these days as been quite busy but I promised that I will try to blog one or two blog once a week. My draft folder is going to be full if I kept postponed. ^-^
During one outing last month, we decided to try "Chu Char" again since my gal wants to have some rice for the night. So we recall that there is one shop in Green Lane that offers some "chu char" so we decided to give it a try! The shop is
Business hour: 4 - 10.30pm (Close Thursday)
It is located in the same row as Mutiara Selera. (Next to Sports Toto Shop)
There are lists of foods that they wrote on the white board inside the shop and also in front of the shops. And After browsing through and recommendation from the person who took our order. We order the following foods:
Watercress Soup
If you follow my blog for quite some time, you will noticed that I always ordered this soup as my gal fond of this soup very much. And the size of the soups are very big. It seems like it will be no ending of soup as I kept scoop scoop scoop and there are still more. lol
Stir fry vegetables with garlic
When this vegetables dish being serves, my first impression is like.... hmmm....this must be so-so. But after I tasted..... hmm... not bad leh... the vege taste so fresh. And hubby also reckon that it tastes nice.
Pai Kut Ong
Ah...., first of all look at the serving plate. Nowadays, it's hard to see this kind of plate being served in the restaurant. ^-^
As for the foods, the pai kut ong is very tender and juicy. It tastes quite nice and my gal enjoying it very much.
Curry Kapitan Chicken
Ah.... this dish is under "Today Special" list. And we were recommend to have a try! So we order this. This turn out to be quite nice. Chicken is very tender and the curry Kapitan is rich of aroma.
Overall, the foods are very reasonable cheap. It cost us RM28 for all the above dishes and 3 plates of white rice.
At first when we entered the shop we saw not much customers around but half way through our meal, we saw lots of customers visiting this shop. So a piece of advice is to go early and avoid the long waiting time.
