Seafood lovers are not forsaken too.... the budget-watchers may visit the Lok-Lok stall to savor the range of Lok-Lok offering... served with their home-made dips while those with deeper pockets could try the baked Crabs... available in different sizes and price points. Otherwise, the BBQ Platter would satisfy both your meat cravings and seafood desire.
We had a number of Food items, but would like to highlight the following 3 items, Laksa, Pizza, and Hongkong Style Chee Cheong Fun which is unusually serve with some greens.
Fisherman's Wharf is very popular especially on weekends.
The Fish Meat Curry Mee is a creamy one bowl noodle in a flavorful broth with okra and eggs. It also comes with a scoop of homemade chili paste that will enhance the flavor and increase the level of spiciness. This bowl of noodles is so delicious and satisfying.
Its signature dish is fish meat curry mee, which is perhaps the first of its kind in Penang.
Arabica Estate @ Karpal Singh Drive, Penang
Arabica Estate Cafe is a specialty coffee chain that serve specialty coffees, authentic Italian foods, delicious cakes and desserts.
Arabica Estate uses a stronger blend of coffee beans for chilled drinks.
Sushi Ya offers Sushi at RM1.90 and RM2.90. Due to the relatively low price, it's quite popular among residents in Jelutong. It was crowded during my visit. However, the sashimi they served are not really that fresh. You can see from the maguro sushi below. I guess this is a trade-off for the price. Well, if you're not into raw fish, this might be a good place for you to have economical sushi.
Lovers of Sushi, Maki and Nigiri might be glad to know or not that Sushi Ya has opened a new outlet in Penang island. The brand is well-established at Raja Uda and is known for its economical offering. Many budget eaters flocked the place when it was first opened; the new branch at Straits Garden, Jelutong is highly visible from the bustling Jelutong Street. But how economical is economical, you wondered? The items run on the Sushi Belt are priced either at Rm 1.90 (for pink plates) and Rm 2.90 (for red plates); while those on the menu are priced relatively lower than most Japanese restaurants in town. The trade off is of course the quality, which equates to the prices- cheap. Oddly, though the prices seem cheap, the final bill came to (4) us was slightly over Rm 150 (plus surcharges). There was no satisfaction at all; unless required, we do not see ourselves patronizing the place in the future.
Nasi Lemak is probably the only main dish available at Sin Boon Kee, but it comes in 2 different variants- Fish and Chicken. We opted for the latter one, it was not the typical battered Fried Chicken but more like Kampung-styled spiced Fried Chicken. It carried a very strong spice flavor and worked well with the Nasi Lemak (with hint of Coconut Milk). A pity that the Sambal was not as spicy as we would have hoped though
If you are looking for a more stomach filling, the only option here will be Nasi Lemak, which you can have additional toppings such as prawns or fried chicken. Nevertheless, it was mediocre in taste and still has a margin to match those simple yet delicious street nasi lemak.
Here's the location.
The big pot with all our selected ingredients are painted in red colour with the exception of a slight green colours from the coriander leaves. Even the okra we selected were covered in red colour also, signifying the chef really fry everything altogether with chili. Having said that, the taste of course was spicy too (we chose moderate level of spiciness).
Now here's the interesting part that makes Akiyoshi unique in its own way.
Akiyoshi Automall, an informal Japanese drinking establishment that serves fresh seafood to compliment your drink with a breathtaking view of the ocean.
If you enjoy having some skewers, then Akiyoshi is one of the decent pick as you can see the chef preparing and grilling the skewers in kitchen. There are aplenty of choices but one of it we enjoyed is Gindara Teriyaki (Cod Fish). Its fatty acid gives it a greasy yet delectable taste, though we would have preferred a less bolder sauce. Otherwise, get a Shake Kama Syioyaki (Salmon Head) to have a taste on the chef's great grilling skills.
Bangkok Garden在Automall是超火红的 #泰式烧烤店临近海边所以不但有海风吹就算餐厅内满座也不会感觉烟烟地因为地方宽阔而且开放式的哦
For a no-frills Thai Mookata experience, look no further than this curious space at Automall, Karpal Singh Drive. Affordably priced at Rm 19.90 for a basic set (serves 2), budget watchers can now enjoy delicious Thai Steamboat at unbeatable price, well-complemented with sea breeze. The simple set includes some basic meat balls, greens and meat but those with a deeper pocket can always top up extra few dollars for the additional spread. Bangkok Garden BBQ is not air-conditioned and instead, it relies on the sea breeze so the best time to visit would probably in the evening. The serving portion is not that great but it would be perfectly fine to be served as supper in lieu of a proper meal. Bangkok Garden BBQ can be found right next to Sae Ma Eul Korean BBQ Restaurant.
Right across the junction to Sungai Pinang and Jelutong, Jason Nyonya House is one of the latest Nyonya restaurants in town. The amiable restaurant has classic wooden house features with staircase at the entrance. It feels very homey, just like any casual dining spot in the neighborhood. The setting does not suggest that it is a Nyonya restaurant... as far as decor is concerned. The name sums it all, the place offers a simple, home-cooked style Nyonya menu. The classics such as Loh Bak, Joo Hoo Char, Inche Kabin, Assam Pedas are there with some additional 'specials of the day' (but we were a little underwhelmed the dish- Assam Prawns was not on the menu). After sampling some of the dishes, we reckon that they lacked the authentic Nyonya touch. Authenticity aside, the dishes were not shabby (if you are seeing the place as a standard Zhu Char place in lieu of Nyonya restaurant).
