Teluk Kumbar Seafood: How Peng You

My ratings: 5 Stars

84 Mk9 Teluk Kumbar 11920, Penang 04-6491403
Pork Free (seafood restaurant)
RM20-30 per person

Teluk Kumbar Seafood (aka How Peng You or Good Friends) is becoming my go to place for true delicious seafood. The place is a real treat for the taste buds as well as the sight, smell and hearing and feeling. Situated at the southern part of the island by the beach side of a coastal fishing village. A number of well known celebrities have been patronising the restaurant. Jason from Taste with Jason TV shows did a segment on this restaurant. So it has to be good!!

A real treat for the sight is because the sun sets behind the hills along the beach, creating a unique colourful picturesque canvas of Penang idyllic coastal fishing village life. Silhouettes of the boats from the light reflected off the surface of the sea. A definite favourite for shutterbugs too.

We ordered seafood and vegetable. In order of appearance below, we had:-

Freshly Juiced White Nutmeg with Preserved Sour Plum
"Batu Maung" Satay
Claims cooked in Shallots and Ginger
Chinese Kailan with Roasted Garlic
Crab cooked wiht Salted Duck Eggs
Baked Crab (plain)
Crab cooked in a "Kam Heong" sauce
Claims cooked with Bean paste
Deep Fried Crispy Calamari
Steamed Fish Teow Chiew Style

Crabs were simply delicious in any style. Top favourite is plain Baked Crab. The ingredients are fresh. The favour is well balanced and aromatic. And of course the "Batu Maung" satays. Marinated slices of meat grilled together with the spicy aromatic sauce - a must order!

The restaurant is no frills but it has the best view of any great restaurants. A little challenging to locate the restaurant. Not easily seen from the main rood. It is directly in front of Yan Chang primary school in Teluk Kumbar and it's behind a motor workshop. It does have a small sign indicating the Teluk Kumbar Seafood restaurant but again barely can be seen. Drive around the workshop to the beach behind it and you will find ample parking by the beach
If you are able to find the place, it is definitely worth your effort. Seafood is fresh, you can choose your live seafood. Moderately priced. Crabs are meaty and sweet
