Craving for some delicious and tasty Penang seafood?
On the mainland side of Penang lies a town known as Nibong Tebal. Here, you will find a restaurant that served one of the best crab porridge as well as other seafood.

Cheang Kee restaurant is well known to the locals as well as those from outstation. People that travel down south or those heading north bound usually stop at this outlet for the food. Recently we too patronised this place on our way home from Ipoh to Penang.

We had boiled baby octopuses (too bow sui). The texture is very chewy and tasted good dipping in chili sauce with toppings of grounded peanut.

Fried prawns.


Padi Frog stir fried with dried chilis, ginger and spring onions.

Steamed fish in soya sauce.

Fried la-la with brown beans, chilis and garlic.

Fried ‘hae choe’ – mince prawn and pork.

Fried pui ling with tanghoon.

To get to this place, turn left after you have exit the Nibong Tebal toll plaza and head for the town. Continue driving straight until you reach the new elevated bridge (flyover) – drive up the bridge. As you descend, you need to keep left in order to make a sharp left-hand turn so that you can go under the bridge which will lead you to town (just go straight and don’t make any turning). Travel around 500m, you will see the restaurant on your right. Parking is by the road side. If you are lost, just give them a call at : 04-593-1728. Be prepare to wait especially during peak hours.

***** Updates ***** Got this direction to the new location of  NEW CHEANG KEE RESTAURANT from reader, Ganga Devi Ganesh  :

If you are coming from the highway after exiting Jawi/Nibong Tebal toll take a left. Go straight until u reach the traffic light. At the traffic light you see a Shell Petrol Station on your right & Cheang Kee on the left. Keep to your left . Go straight after the traffic light keeping to your left & turn left after abt 100m from the traffic light. This is before the elavated bridge.

Hi,

The pictures are from Cheang Kee but the ‘how to get there’ is incorrect. If you are coming from the highway after exiting Jawi/Nibong Tebal toll take a left. Go straight until u reach the traffic light. At the traffic light you see a Shell Petrol Station on your right & Cheang Kee on the left. Keep to your left . Go straight after the traffic light keeping to your left & turn left after abt 100m from the traffic light. This is before the elavated bridge.

Ganga Devi Ganesh – My direction on how to get to Cheang Kee is for the previous location. I heard they have moved to a new place nearer to the toll and it must be the place that you mentioned.

Since you have provided me with the direction to the NEW Cheang Kee, I will update this info into my post.

Thanks for dropping by.
