A visit to Sunshine Bay for dinner had the few of us indulging in several types of seafood dishes. This eatery, located in Kedai Kopi Sin Eng Huat at Tanjung Bungah is just right beside the traffic light junction, directly opposite  the famous Penang Tanjung Bunga Goreng Pisang stall. The place looks quite a bit run down with the fluorescent lightnings going on and off during our visit on a rainy day. Anyway, the food was awesome!

I am sharing the scrumptious noodle dishes first. The Kappa Mee Suah and the Stir Fried Noodles with Crab are two lovely choices. The meesuah was smooth and extremely flavorful with the egg and fresh kappa.

On the other hand, the yellow noodles stir-fried with crab, is robust with the crustacean juices. The noodles are best left absorbing the gravy as it tends to get slightly moist and more flavorful. I could not resist a second helping of the noodles! The crab flesh was juicy, and with the gravy coating it, the dish was heavenly!

The main dishes we ordered to complement the delicious noodles!

Guinness stout is usually cook with pork and it is a great having it cooked with chicken. The dosage of Guinness used in marinating the chicken is just right. It added extra earthiness to the chicken. A definite must-order on your visit. The chicken pieces are tender and juicy.

Moving on to another seafood, which is prawns! The prawns are stir-fried with thick black sauce till they are evenly coated with the gravy. The chef prepared it just right, without overcooking the prawns!

The next dish will undoubtedly impress fish lovers. The steam stingray with lemon is served with generous squeezes of lemon, garlic, ginger and chili which added spiciness and flavor to this mouthwatering dish. This texture of this particular piece of fish is very smooth and is suitable for many as it has only several big bones.

The fried vegetable with pieces of pee uu (dried sole) rounded off the meal. The many pieces of pee hu gave great flavor to the bland vegetable. Great dish to end the meal!

Seafood O seafood ! By the real sea !

Not like some unique “seafood” but with no unique sea :D

CK Lam Reply:

The restaurant is nearby the sea but most of the seating area can’t really get the seaview.

The Kappa Mee Suah and the Stir Fried Noodles with Crab look really good. I actually have never heard of this restaurant. Must try one of these days. Thanks. :)

CK Lam Reply:

Do share your favorites with me too!

Instead of noodles Crab, we tried meesuah crab which is absoloutely delish! Most of the dishes there are pretty good altho a tad oily.

May 13th, 2010 at 8:17 am

Thanks for recommending. We are less lucky … tried the Kappa meesuah. The Kappas were not fresh and we had to return it. Tried the stingray too, we were given the part where there was hardly any meat to eat other than a thin layer of skin. We also tried steam prawn with egg white, but the taste was so blend that my husband had to pour one table spoon of chilli soy sauce on each prawn.
Good thing … was really cheap !

saya telah beberapa kali mengunjungi restoran itu dan memang tidak dapat dinafikan bahawa makanan di situ memang melazatkan sehingga menjilat jari.!Beberapa hidangan yang masih terukir dalam ingatan ialah udang tom yam dalam kelapa,mee goreng dengan udang galah ,kappa mee suah, claypot fish with yam,kam heong crab,
…harga yang berpatutan berbanding dengan harga di kl. Memang berbaloi walaupun memandu berjam-jam untuk sampai di kedai itu.

Tried this place when we visited Penang last month, we boooked a cab there n fro as we are not local, manage to find it and MUST SAY Good food, my little gal ate everything without us having to force feed her~ We are going back there again on our next visit to Penang in July~
Thanks for the recommending this place~ “)

Love the food here. Fresh and good price. Had the Stir Fried Noodles with Crab. Yummy. Tomyam also fabulous.

June 28th, 2010 at 11:18 am

just asking whether the restaurant is pork free or not?….thks

Two of us were there at their new place, opposite Good Hope Inn and the food is not as good as you have written. WE order a plate of crab noodle ( 2 small blue crab) for RM26.00 ( for one person portion) and a small bowl of kappa mee suah (RM5) with less than 10 kappa and a plate of steam sting ray (RM22). The crab nooddle (mee) is so soggy and it’s overcooked and the miserable crab is also not that good and think that it’s not worth RM26 for this dish. You have overatted this restaurant and would not definitely go there.

August 12th, 2011 at 9:35 am

I just stay somewhere around & all my friends from local & outstation also complained very EXPENSIVE n like restaurant price.

August 25th, 2011 at 7:05 pm

We had kappa mee suah, steam prawns wt egg white, fish head wt yam and baked crabs. For 2 persons, the meal cost RM103. Food was good. Enjoyed it. Will definitely return.

I have just been to this place – last week, to be exact. And I must say that I am pleased. The entrance is quite easy to miss but then there is free parking. You don’t get that very often nowadays.

Food is good – nothing to complain about, so far. We ordered nothing fancy, just a fish curry, stir fried vege and asam prawns. They were all decent in quality. I am surprised at number of prawns – medium size – that they give you. Taste was good. We finished with a bird nest dessert that the lady owner (I think) recommended at RM16 per medium size bowl. And of course, you don’t really think we are gulping down bird’s nest, do you?

The price was reasonable.

There is even a satay stall operating at the restaurant – run by a Malay guy. We ordered a few sticks just to try out. It was okay.

Conclusion, nice place, good price. Can try.

November 3rd, 2011 at 11:32 pm

delicious….!!! btw, how long it takes to reach frm Georgetown….as we will be only 2 days 1 night trip here….
