Do you like to know how does the editor of Rasa Malaysia looks like? A few of us bloggers got the privilege to meet up with this famous food blogger who was back in Penang for the holidays. We not only get to meet her but also dine with her at the Crab Village Restaurant which is just a stone throw away from the Floating Mosque in Tanjung Bungah. Thanks to Lingzie for arranging this meeting for us.
This restaurant has a sheltered open air seating area and a fully air-conditioned dining hall. They offered a variety of fresh seafood selection. This first dish of kappa (clams) is fried with sweet and sour sauce, which is very appetizing and good for a starter.
Next was the crab and prawn dish. Though there were a few method of preparing the seafood, we opted for the basic and traditional style – baked. They were baked till moist and served with their homemade seafood sauce to give that extra kick!
Deep fried ‘jia hoo’ fish – fried until garing-garing (crispy) and most part of it can be consume except the main bone. Another deep fried item (I miss taking the photo) was the fried sotong, which all of us found to be slightly salty.
This plate of Hokkien Char together with all the seafood dishes and drinks cost RM327.
All the ladies had the pleasure of taking photos with Rasa Malaysa… the first photo showing Gill standing on the left with Cariso, me sitting on the left, Rasa Malaysia in the center and Lingzie on the right. The guys, Jason and Penang Tua Pui did not have their photos taken. We had an enjoyable evening with Rasa Malaysia who kindly shares her blogging experience with us. We wishes her a safe journey back to the States and hope she will come to Penang more often.
This is the frontage of the restaurant which has a relatively small parking area. Additional ones can be found in nearby Khaleel Restaurant. The photo of the floating mosque was taken at the rear of the restaurant. I was busy chit chating that I forgot to note down the address and telephone number of the restaurant but anyway here is the map location.
