Phee Choon RoadPhee Choon Road (25 November, 2017)

Phee Choon Road, or Jalan Phee Choon, is a minor road in George Town. It originally runs from Penang Road to Transfer Road.

Today, the Penang Road section has been sealed off, so Phee Choon Road is now a no-through road. Traffic enters from Transfer Road and exits via Khoo Sian Ewe Road. At the junction of Khoo Sian Ewe Road and Phee Choon Road is Khoo's "crown jewel", the Majestic Theatre.

Phee Choon Road was named after Lee Phee Choon, one of the rich Chinese in Penang in the 1880's. In the 1960's to the early 1980's, there was a famous restaurant at Phee Choon Road called Wing Look. It was at the junction with Penang Road, and it served Hainanese-style Western food. I remember my Mom and Dad used to take me here for their old-style chicken chop. The shop is now gone, and the premises now occupied by a pawn shop.
