Hong Guan Coffee Shop at Batu Ferringhi, Penang

We used to think that having a meal up in Batu Ferringhi means sure have to spend a lot d since it's a very popular tourist spot.

They have hawker food corner but it's all super expensive.

Then we found a place that not only sells pretty cheap food but also totally nice. Actually, we didn't like find it. More like she recommended it because it's one of the place of her fanily's favourite! 

They don't have a lot of choice when it comes to 'choo char' dishes, but they do have other items like char hor fun, fried rice and fried noodles etc.

After a good cheap meal all the way up north, then it's walk walk at the beach. How romantic, and we didn't have to spend a lot :)

The front part of their humble corner.


The Cook. He used to work in hotels as chef and then decided to start own his business! :)

Stir fried bitter gourd - RM5
He says: Lurve this thing even though I'm not a fan of bittergourd. Smells good tastes good!
She says: I love bitter gourd!! Like too much love.. THIS IS THE BOMB! The way he stir fired this dish is simple yet so nice to eat. People who doesn't eat this bitter veg often finds themselves alright with this dish *points on top* :)

Stir fried chicken with dried chilli - RM 6
He says: Kong Po style! You gotta try this.. =) Fried together with onions, dried chilli and garlic, it is hard to go wrong.
She says: Chicken meat, tender. Black Kong Po sauce, thick and delicious. Side veges, crispy and fresh. This dish is the second bomb! :D LOVE IT!

Stir fried prawn with oyster sauce - RM 7
He says: Good. The prawn is fresh and I like the sauce!
She says: This one is not my favorite. Not so much that it is not nice, it actually is the way they cook it with the oyster sauce. Will I order this one the next time? Probably not cos I wanna try others! HAHA.
