Penang Hawker Food – Min Jiang Ayer Itam

Min Jiang is a coffee shop in Ayer Itam Road which is located a few houses away from the Nissan showroom. There are quite a number of stalls there. Highly recommended is the Thai Tomyam stall which is run by a lady with operating hours from 8.00 pm onwards.

The taste of the tomyam soup is one of the better ones that we have tasted so far. A bowl with big size prawns, sotong and fish slices costs RM6 and is garnished with lots of coriander leaves.

We used to eat Oh Chien (fried oyster omelette), how about Hier Chien (fried prawn omelette)? There is a stall selling this omelette that uses prawns and cooked in a flour mixture until brown, served garnished with chopped spring onions. A bit of lime juice is added on to enhanced the flavour.

Grilled fish.
Evenly grilled chicken satay (sold by a Malay family) comes with cucumber and pieces of raw onions. This stall starts selling from 8.00pm onwards.
The food served here are worth trying out. The coffeeshop is closed on Sunday!
