Penang: Yi Garden Cafe

This cafe have been around for a long time but its my first time here recommended by the local boy Julian. This place known for a few good stuff and as our first round dinner (yup, we had three round of dinner that night!), we stopped here for sar hor fun, oo-chen (fried oysters with eggs), oo-mee (oysters fried noodles) and pork porridge.

The sar hor fun is good, something I had missed all these years, its actually just like Cantonese fried here in KL but the koay teow is different, its thicker and bigger piece and topping includes fishes and big prawns on top of pork and vegetables.

The oo-chen here is quite a wait but its very good, not too starchy and the oysters are big in size, we order the smallest for RM6 per plate.

The fried oysters noodles (oo-mee) is something you don’t find here in KL and its the same stall as sar hor fun. Yellow noodles are fried with oysters and I must say its pretty good but I was told there’s another even better famous to try it but 45-60 mins wait, that will be left for another posting when I have the chance to visit :D.

We wanted porridge and my superb favourite chee-cheong porridge at New Lane is off that day, so we took some pork porridge here. The style is quite unique, you can choose porridge or noodles, its topped with all parts of the pig, you get pork, internal and even the pork’s brains, interesting. We choosed the porridge and waiting time is again long as it is popular, the porridge is almost like teow-chew style with a lots of water.

For drinks, well for KL folks, its always cheaper to drink ambrah sour plum up here but Julian’s favourite is “gu leng peng” which is milk mixed with syrup… I never try that… sounds too sweet to  me, hehe… maybe next time.

Overall, I am satisfied with this visit having good oo-chen plus a good introduction to oo-mee and sar hor fun, thanks Juls ;).
