Teluk Kumbar Seafood @ Penang

February 17, 2010

Eating seafood on Penang's beach was a fun experience that we can't replicate in KL.

It was nice to catch the sunset by the sea. The weather was breezy and the service was swift; the food was rather ordinary but relatively inexpensive.

La-la in garlic. Pretty typical; the clams were fairly meaty.

Crabs in sweet & sour sauce. OK, but not remarkable.

Chicken satay. Kinda interesting; the satay was apparently coated in peanut sauce already, so there was no separate dip served. Not bad at all, but we could have used some extra sauce to really soak the satay and make it more flavourful.

Teochew Mee. Pretty addictive, thanks to the firm, springy noodles and a delicious seafood-based gravy (or was it simply MSG?).

Steamed red snapper. Tasted fresh enough, but not memorable either.

Fried rice with seafood. Not terrific, not terrible.

Some kinda unidentifiable greens. Boring but healthy, I guess.

Mantis prawns coated in salted egg. Can't go wrong with this.
