Our family favorite reataurant whenever we visit Penang. The Mee Sua Kor (Rice Noodle soup with seafood) is a must eat food when visiting this place. The Prosperity Noodle with Fresh Oyster also very delicious, Home-made Seafood Roll is another must order item from this place. Always leave this restaurant with almost explode belly, thumbs up👍👍

Private joke between my wife and I - TCM is our go-to place when it rains in the evening. We usually gets to park our car right in front of the shop or pretty close opposite the road.

Friendly and fast service. Mee suah, fish porridge and noodles are great and delicious. The servings is large so order carefully. The octopus was steamed just right. Chewing and crunchie. Seafood rolls are freshly made and fried with new shortening.
