Chu Char @ Yi Garden Cafe, Macalister Road, Penang

We dine in Yi Garden Cafe several times but we never try the chu char before. So we decided to give the chu char stall a try!!!
Seafood Stall
The lady boss from the stall took hubby's order and some are the recommendations by the owner. But we did not order their specialties. Which she claimed that their crab is their signature dish and since before that we had been eating sea foods for the past weeks, we decided to give it a pass this time round and order some simple dishes as following:
Teo Chew Steam Promfret
The Teo Chew steam is not bad. But also nothing to shout about as it is quite a normal dishes that you can find in many places. And the Teo Chew steam is more towards sourness. If you love sourness in your steam fish, then you can give this a try. The fish is fresh and nice.
Prawn
This claimed to be one of their signature dishes. And the prawn tastes alright but it is pity that there are only few prawns in this plate. lol
Stir fry lady fingers with garlic
Stir fry shell
I don't know since when that my gal start to enjoy clams, lala......... As long as there are such foods being served on the tables, she will request that she wants some. And this stir fry shell is very tasty and delicious. My gal ate lots of this and I only able to have few pieces. Poor mummy ya. lol

teochew-style of steaming fish is very nice, being light, but with a sourish tinge.

hey, you must record down all the zhu char stall in your listing, later publish penang zhu char, make money, isnt it? lol

Tried this stall once, but everything seems ordinary except the clam dishes, quite good.

NKOTB, SimpleGirl and Cariso - I am not chu char queen. But I dine out during weekend and mainly go for chu char that's why so many chu char posts. ^-^ Cariso, no I never bring my gal to korek kappa. Any place to introduce ah?

Selba - You don't like lady finger or hard to get in your place?

vialentino - oic.... I been to Bali Hai a couple of time in the past. Some of the foods are nice.

BBO - well, just an ordinary chu char. ^-^

J2Kfm - yes.... agreed.

peachkins - try it and it is nice even you just stir fry it with garlic.

gill gill - wow! it is quite a good odea ah.... but I guess I still have not qualify to do so. ^-^

foodcreate - You are welcome!

Becklee - I guess many of us still enjoy having clams. lol

My Taste Heaven - Taste alright!

Food for Tots - Yes, give it a try! But the pricing for this chu char stall is a bit higher compares to other stall. Please take note ya!
