On our first day during Penang trip, we went to eat delicious dinner at Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant 阿水海鲜. Penang trip is a non-stop eating trip as we just had our bowl of delicious Assam Laksa at Penang Air Itam Laksa 槟城亚依淡巴刹叻沙 around 3 pm. Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant at Jalan Paya Terubong, Ayer Itam is also recommended by our homestay (Havara Place) owner. According to him, Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant is the place to bring his friends and relatives if they came to visit him in Penang.
We followed our homestay’s owner advice to reach here early, as it can get very pack at night. We still want to go to Penang Hill after dinner. So we reach the seafood restaurant around 6 pm and there is only 1 table of customers. We ordered a few dishes as recommended by the waiter and the foods are served pretty fast. Let’s go through the delicious food photos.
The Awesome Seafood at Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant (阿水海鲜)
This Assam Prawn is very delicious and the taste is so unique. The thick sour sauce goes well with the rice as well. Prawn are fresh too. A must order if you love prawns.
The next dish is the Sour Lime Lala. Very delicious too as the lala is fresh and juicy.
A closer look on the Sour Lime Lala. Seems like we have eaten a lot of sour food today, starting with the Assam Laksa, the Assam Prawn and this Sour Lime Lala.
Ah Chui Grilled Stingray Fish is very nice as the fish is marinated deep inside the flesh. Every single bite is juicy and I can taste the special sauce inside the flesh. Fully recommended.
Another photo of the Grilled Stingray. So far this is one the best grilled stingray I ever had.
This BBQ Lady Finger is a recommendation by our homestay owner. Delicious too but personally we prefer it to be spicier.
The Thai Style Tofu, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Just like Ah Chui Seafood Restaurant, i think many shop has perfected this dish.
This seafood restaurant is located in a shop house. You can easily spot this shop with the grilled area in front of the restaurant.
