Again, another delayed post on my Penang trip last November. Obviously I failed to complete the challenge where I'm supposed to blog about my previous Penang trip before my current trip to Penang. Well, by the time you're reading this, I'm already in Penang. *waves from the north Tsk tsk. Epic failure, I know. That's because March has been really really hectic even from the first day itself #notcomplaining
So, where were we? Yes, food! Seafood is definitely one of the not-to-be-missed food in Penang cause it's of course cheaper than the seafood in KL, no? Since we were craving for seafood, Henry Tan brought my bunch and I, as well as JunFook (no group photo, sadly) to Tsunami Village Cafe at Tanjung Bungah for a seafood dinner. No idea why is it called Tsunami Village Cafe but I guess it's probably named in the memory of the disastrous day that once almost turned a part of Penang upside down. Still, it's a peculiar name that makes it easy to remember this place. It's like any other no-frill local eatery with a few tables and chairs arranged by the beach where you can dine in al-fresco, how romantic *smirks Since it was drizzling that day and the beach was barely visible cause of the dark, we opted to dine in.
It was quite packed at that hour yet we were attended shortly after seated. However, the food took quite some time to be served.
|#3. Kam Hiong Squids @ RM20.00|
Just like any typical kam hiong dish, the chewy squids were fragrant and flavourful.
|#6. Stir Fried Vege @ RM16.00|
|A feast enough to feed tummies of nine :D|
Overall, the seafood dishes are fared superb in freshness, flavor and price wise. The total bill came up to RM167, which is less than RM20 per person for such a satisfying dinner. Totally worth it! And I would definitely come back for another visit. The view can be pretty awesome too if you were to dine by the beach but on the downside, you have to look out for the amount of annoying mozzy (:
P/S: Oh btw, parking fee can be claimed at the cashier.

|Literally sitting by the beach while enjoying the breeze and listening to the waves (: We were seated so close to the beach that I even had the urge to swim in the sea but the beach was dirty, such bummer T__T|
|Instead of drinking beers like others, we had fruit juices in plastic cups instead HEH #chio|
To be honest, I'm not really looking forward for my trip to Penang tomorrow. But for the sake of their good food, scratch that! Hopefully I don't come back with extra baggage on my tummy (x
