It was a night for a small celebration for an occasion that I almost forgot.. haha.. so… anyhow, we decided to brave the traffic after peak hour in Penang and get ourselves pass Georgetown to Sunshine Bay Seafood at Tanjung Bungah for dinner.

We are being told by Julian to specifically order 4 of their best dishes here and we pandai-pandai asked for 1 recommendation and guess what… all of them turned out to be very nice!

This place is located at the traffic light junction just after the police station opposite the famous goreng pisang place that I really missed, too bad no time to eat that this round, got to work one you know.

We ordered the famous crabs fried mee, “tekat” (something like that, kind of calms la) mee suah, guiness stout chicken, bittergound eggs and lai pak vege fried with scallops.

The crabs fried mee is basically mud crabs fried with thin yellow noodles (reminds of the crabs fried mee at Teluk Gong). The sauce with mee is good but you really have to eat this fast but with crabs, you just have to take your time.

The calms fried with mee suah is really good and I actually like this more. The mee suah and calms are covered with a starchy sauce and its superbly appetizing and the moment you took the first bite, you want to refill more on your plate. That’s how good it is.

Next up is their guinness stout chicken, now the usual way of cooking this is after marinating the chicken, you deep fried it then stir fry in a thin sticky sauce. But their stout chicken here is soft, no trace of deep frying and the flavour is very well maintain, portion is small but its again very delicious!

The bittergound eggs is really special. The eggs are almost like half boiled, added with soy sauce covering the bittergound. Just because of this dish, we ordered rice because its just too nice to take with rice. I think I can just eat this with rice and be very satisfied, yes, that’s how good it is!

The lai pak vegetable stir fried with scallops is recommended by the guy whom took our order since we already ordered their 4 best dishes. I thought this would just be an ordinary stir fried vegetable dish but turns out, the taste is good and the scallops are fresh too.

For the 3 of us, we paid RM77.00 for all the above. RM41 for the crabs fried mee (about 1kg of crabs I guess), RM 10 for the calms mee suah and scallops vege. RM8 for the eggs and chicken.

Overall, its all thumbs up here and we walked away with full and happy bellies. I hope they will keep up the quality and maintain the good pricing, I will surely be back on my trip to Penang, already missing the mee suah and bittergound eggs… slurp!

The shop was packed when I was there for lunch, which speaks for itself how good the food are. With Penang cooking background the shop stir up excellent curry noodles, soup or dry and now even offered curry chicken rice. They also have pork noodles available but when I am here, I only target their curry noodles ;).

John and I was so syiok with it we almost didn’t had enough, next trip you will see us ordering the big portion! Damage was RM6 for each of us for the regular noodles plus 1 herbal tea drink, pricing is reasonable!

From what I know, the owners used to operate a canteen at Proton factory and had gave that up to open their stalls in Sri Muda and the shop now operated by their son. The boss is guai lou, so don’t be surprise if he is cooking up your noodles 😛

Suggest you should go slightly earlier as peak lunch hour is really packed but they do serve it up quite fast. Quality is still as good as the old stall and that is a good thing. Highly recommended to anyone who loves curry noodles.

The last time I tried to come here just 15 mins before their closing time, I was informed that they had sold out for that weekday night! That just show this place is so popular and the night I was here, the place was packed and we had to wait for a table.

The menu is very standard, just claypot chicken rice in its original form… either you have it plain, add salted fish, add chinese sausages, add egg or with extra chicken. I think that is the way it should really be with speciality store like this, no point have so many fancy options and dilute the original dish. The claypot chicken rice here are all still cooked with charcoal and that is how claypot chicken rice should be cooked too!

A small chicken rice starts at RM7.00 and the big one meant for 2 pax starts at RM13.00 with the various options mentioned above. A varieties of steamed soup is offered all flat at RM5 for a small pot good for 1 or 2 person to share in my opinion. There are also various vegetables and drinks to offer.

This is how ordering here works, once you get a table, the workers place empty plates and cutleries on your table and a menu. They will only take your drinks order on the table. Once you have decided what you want to eat, then you proceed to the counter at the kitchen, let the lady know your table number and what you want to order.

While waiting for our orders, Ah Fei was providing feedback telling me that I need to update my blog more.. haha… ok ok.. noted, will try to update more ya!

We took 2 big and 1 small claypot chicken rice, add with added salted fish and sausages. We share each pot with all 5 of us and funny thing is each pot tasted different. I think the kitchen must be rushing for the crowd… cause the first small pot was just ok, the second pot was good but the third pot is quite burnt.

Usually when its a bit burnt its fine and we would purposely want the “fan chew” or burnt rice as its crunchy and nice but the rice is not burnt harden, still soft but have this strong burnt taste on the third pot.

Anyway, other than the third pot, judging from the second pot, the rice does not stick and not too dry either so I guess that is why the shop is so packed! I didn’t try the soup, so can’t comment on that. But anyway, thumbs up to the shop for maintaining the good taste and authentic style of claypot chicken rice.
