On our last visit which was a year ago, we were invited by hubby's friend Micheal for dinner. We just ordered ordinary dishes like stir fried vegetable, sour and spicy chicken wings, their signature tofu with dried mushrooms and siew bak choi, satay, tom yam fish and crabs stir-fried in salty duck egg yolk. A year later, we hopped in for another try. This time we tried their prawns, mantis prawns and meat crabs.
There's a satay stall opposite the Hao You Seafood. Most of the people who dine in Hao You will order it. The satay, which is pre-marinated in satay sauce, cost 70 cents per stick. The price remains the same since a year ago. It’s a bit sweet. Compared to the ordinary satay, the difference is you don't get the chance to dip the satay in the peanut sauce. There's a layer of chicken skin sandwiched between the 2 pieces of chicken meat. Ha, I just throw away that layer.
Although it was still early at 6pm, but then, roe crab was no longer available. We had no choice but to order 2 meat crabs. In order to taste the original flavor, we went for "peng" crabs. "Peng" crabs are more suitable to eat on its own. Unlike the crabs stir-fried in salty duck egg yolk, it’s more delicious to be eaten with rice. We were quite disappointed with the crabs. It cost us RM24 for merely 2 little crabs.
Kam Heong prawns. The size of prawns are not really huge, but with the bird's eye chili added, it becomes an appetizing dish to go with rice. :) I'm a prawn lover, and I love this.
Between squid and mantis prawn, we chose the latter. We had this Nestum mantis prawns. It's very crispy and fragrant. With the curry leaves and bird's eye chili (again?) added, it tastes superb. Just a bit oily like normal deep fried stuff.
If you are coming from Bayan Lepas International Airport, Teluk Kumbar Seafood is located at the back of an abandoned Yellow Bus Terminal on your left, just before the junctions to Balik Pulau and Gertak Sanggul.
Here, you can choose a seating place on the beach, with great sea view, the fisherman boats, and of course the nice sun set.
Address: 84, MK9, Teluk Kumbar, 11920 Penang.
Here, I would like to wish all of you Happy New Year 2009!
