Went up to Penang by bus on Saturday. Oh, actually I stopped at Butterworth because of a lunch appointment. We were taken to a place where I have never been there before... I am sure those staying in Butterworth will know this place.. Ong Cheng Huat.... it is outskirt from town and sort of a village to me...


I was very surprised to see so many cars parked right outside this open-aired shop/restaurant, or whatever... Amazed by the crowd who defied the cool air and the houseflies that swarmed the area too.. hahahaa... (I multi-tasked while I was there.. eating with my mouth, using hands to swap out the flies at the same time!) I should have suggested to the owner to use candles to ward off the houseflies la...

Okay, putting the houseflies aside, I dare say the food there was quite special in a way... something I have not taken before... and wouldn't mind going there once again (this time, I will take my own candle along!)

first dish that came was this crispy popiah minus the sengkuang
this is a MUST! must be from grandmother's recipe...

but alas, i cannot say the same for this clams..
the lala were quite shrunken, overcooked, i guess...

the meehoon noodles was fine.. alright.. to me..

and the best was the steamed fish..
steamed to ngam ngam hoe *just right*
not over or undercooked...
I love the sauce and gravy
with lots of garlic and small chilies...

Another thing special about this Ong Cheng Huat ..
is that all the dishes served come in metal plates..
and if you are guiness stout drinker,
you can try adding in "tuak" or fermented coconut to your drink!
Don't ask me how it tasted like,
Must be good since almost every table, they have a tuak bottle there!
by the way, the bill came to RM40.00 for the dishes above..
