RESTORAN O & S

Recently, a friend told us there is a coffee shop in Paramount Garden selling popular Penang hawkers food which  is a pretty good substitute without having us to travel back to the Island to satiate  our cravings. Since he offered to drive us, we were excited and set our foot there during one of the Saturday morning.

The four of us arrived there near to 10 am and most of the tables was taken up. Luckily, a couple had just finished their meal and immediately we reserve the seats.   

With so many food stalls to choose (and it was hard for us to decide what to order), we finally opted for different kind of noodles.

Penang Lor Mee (RM5)
Thick and gooey gravy infused with 5 spices powder , garnished with lots of fried onions and topped with prawns & half boiled egg.
This bowl of gem gets my mom’s approval.


Fish Head  & Prawns Noodles (RM8.50)
With the right amount of milk in the soup, few pieces of fried fish meat & fresh prawns, sprinkled with fried garlic, my sister couldn’t complain any further.
Wet Popiah (RM7)
I would prefer this without the salad leaf, shredded cucumber and boiled bean sprout. The original Penang popiah don’t have these greens. No thumb up from all of us  

Kuey Teow Th’ng/Soup Flat Rice Noodles (RM5)
Distinctive taste ...exactly like the one I used to eat in Penang. Not only filled with fried garlic oil (my fave), the bouncy fish balls, cut fish cake and soup says it all.

Penang Hokkien Mee/Prawns Mee (RM5)
Authentic..the stock made of prawns shell was spicy and aromatic, garnished with fresh prawns, half boiled egg and crisp deep fried shallots. Add red chili sauce for more kick.

Before we left, my friend ordered 2 packets of Fried Char Kway Teow for lunch. The noodles was fried perfectly resulted in pungent taste but cockles and prawns was overcooked.

Upon recommendation, I got myself a bag of fried banana & yam fritters and fried popiah for RM4. Crunchy and non greasy…went into our tummies before arriving home.   

For a total of  RM7, my sister bought these colorful nyonya kuih from one of the stall. Heavenly in taste…soft, not overly sweet and fragrant...goes well with hot coffee & tea.



We miss the Assam Laksa, Curry Mee and Lor Bak… maybe in the next visit.

  1. Yeah, this place isn't too bad by Penang standards. The chee cheong fun is exactly the Penang style, yum! You must have that if you're into chee cheong fun, Penang style.
    The cockles were overdone probably because it was tapau-ed ... it happens. Personally, I didn't think the ckt was comparable to Penang :)
