Cheong Kim Chuan which is famous for its nutmeg and local products is situated at the steps leading to Kek Lok Si Temple. As we normally visit Penang during holidays and this place usually gets congested during this time, very often we didn't get to buy our favourite products from Cheong Kim Chuan. Perhaps they should consider having branches in KL or at any Penang shopping mall.


Other than Tau Sar Pneah Biscuts, preserved nutmeg fruits and nutmeg ointment; Cheong Kim Chuan sells the best belacan in the world. For those belacan blocks, we can manage to get them from hypermarkets but we always have problems getting their belacan powder in sachets. I believe Cheong Kim Chuan is the only belacan manufacturer manufactures belacan powder in sachets. This belacan powder is very convenient and tasty. If you are grieving for sambal belacan and want to avoid the hassle of grilling or toasting the belacan block, this belacan powder comes in handy. As for fried kangkong belacan, if you want to save the trouble of pounding chillies and grilling belacan block, again this belacan powder is your saviour. But then, Wwhen using this convenient belacan powder, make sure your elders or mother-in-law are not around esp. if they are peranakan. Smile Surely you don't want to hear comment like "malas" (lazy) when enjoying these delicious dishes.


Cheong Kim Chuan belacan powder or Cheong Kim Chuan sambal belacan paste in bottle are hard to come by in KL. So much so I had to buy an almost expired (few days away from expiry) knowingly and store that bottle of Cheong Kim Chuan sambal belacan in the fridge - at the expense of risking my life ..... Smile
