Sun Kee Oyster Mee 汕记蚝面 @ C.Y. Choy, Georgetown, Penang.

At the junction of C.Y. Choy and Cecil Street is a seemingly normal, old-school local coffee house but the place has been dishing out delicious Penang-styled Hokkien dishes since late 2019. One of the main highlights of this place is its signature Oyster Noodles, a traditional local delicacy that is loved by many. But not many places offer this and some of them could not get it right. Sun Kee boasts over its freshly shucked wild oysters (and usually come in smaller sizes than farmed ones). The menu is quite limited, with a few simple, no-frills Hokkien stir fry dishes. Prices may be slightly higher than ordinary hawker places but Sun Kee offers a clean, comfortable space for a quick fix.

Oyster Noodles (Rm 10/ small)

Stir Fried Glass Noodles with Oysters (Rm 10/ small)

Fried Oyster Omelette (Rm 13)

Stir Fried Five-Spiced Bean Curd with Leek (Rm 8)

Both Sun Kee's Oyster Noodles and Glass Noodles were nicely cooked... with a generous serving of toppings but the Oysters were too small in size and almost insignificant. We could barely taste them but we must agree that both dishes were expertly seasoned and tasted even better with the addition of Sambal Belacan. The Stir Fried Five-Spiced Bean Curd with Leek was equally good, the texture of the Bean Curd was firm and carried a discernible hint of the five-spice powder. The Leek on the other hand, was finely sliced so they did not appear to be too hard to the bite. The Fried Oyster Omelette however, did not appeal to us. The texture was a tad too soft and mushy to our liking and the Oysters were too small and insignificant... not the Fried Oyster Omelette that we were looking forward to.
