Seafood at Tambun

Some of you might not know that Tambun; which is a rural area - like a small fishing village at mainland Penang is famous for its cheap and delicious seafood. If you come from KL/Ipoh and on is on your way to Penang or Juru, you will see the signboard showing you the place Tambun. How do you get there?

From Penang : Crossover Penang Bridge - follow the routes - Ipoh/Juru - Ipoh/Kuala Lumpur/Tambun - and just follow the sign of Tambun all the way. It's 30-45 minutes (about 25-30KM depending on which part you come from in Penang) journey. Just go there and go deep at the end. If you do not know the route there, it's better you get youself someone who knows the place lest you get lost halfway.

There are a few nice restaurants to eat at in Tambun. Do NOT go in the ones you see at the beginning of the road decorated nicely. (most of the time you see it's blank. haha). We went to this one, it's at the end of the road one, called Gee Seng.

On May 27th, Chern Ta, Grame & I went to Tambun for dinner.We ordered 6 dishes : Octopus (cooked in the style of "tu bo sui"), Fried Teochew style mee, boiled cockrels (something special one, oops, I forgot the name though), the restaurant/shop's trademark Tau foo, steamed fish in Teochew style and prawns steamed with chinese wine & egg. All these accompanied with chinese tea.

Some of the flies.... yes.. SOME of the flies...

Because this place is a rural small fishing village, do expect flies and some stench at some areas outside the restaurants though. But if it's like 8PM+, the flies would eventually go off. If you're early like us, we reached at near 7PM, we spotted lots of flies! This is the time where we test our immune body systems! Hahaha. None of us got diarrhea or food poisoning after that! *phew* lucky!!!

Chillis and chilli sauce and another one, grounded chilli with vinegar & garlic


Some shell thingy that we ate. You have to take the toothpick to scoop it out. Tastes like lala. Well, to me la, cause shell things to me tastes like lala's. Hahaha

Steamed fish

Fried Teochew style mee
Steamed prawns with chinese wine & egg

The restaurant's trademark tau foo (oops, realised forgot to take a good pic of it until Chern Ta took the last piece! LOL)

Do you know how much all of the food costs??? Only RM62.50!!! Really, no joke! 6 dishes & a pot of chinese tea & ice some more! Hahaha.

Tastewise, it's edible and not bad. Lots of customers too from everywhere; Butterworth, Penang, Johorians, KL, Ipoh... etc etc...
