Instead of crossing Penang Bridge, we crossed the island by cross-channel ferry services.
Under the blue, my mood was high. :O
There is a wide variety of seafood to choose from; hmm… what should we have for today?
There are a lot of photos and articles which show how famous the restaurant is.
Does it look like a postcard?
Boiled Octopus 'Arms'
Another surprise, sweet sour mantis shrimp, do you see this sea creature before? They are called xia gu(虾蛄) in mandarin, in cantonese cuisine, mantis shrimp is a popular dish known as "pissing shrimp" (攋尿蝦). I can’t find it at my hometown (hmm… I mean JB), and normally, we only can find its relative – crayfish at JB (please enlighten me if you know where to find mantis shrimp at JB). Although it named shrimp, but their flesh is closer to that of lobsters than that of shrimp, and like lobsters, their shells are quite hard and require some pressure to crack. Must try.
Prawn village bean curd and ‘stuffing you tiao’
Compare to them, chilli crab and the rest seems like too common and nothing particular. Overall, I am satisfied with the seafood and the environment here. And that sums up my Penang trip, which is very much illustrated by food, food, and more food! I love Penang, KH, may I visit Penang in next year?
