Golden Thai Seafood Village - (Batu Ferringhi, Penang) Malaysia


Dining with extended family I agree is all about bonding, but when its alongside almost literally 25 different characters, tell me please. Hair and head splitting. First of all, to decide where dinner should be, each of course have their own preferences, then, coming together, I mean driving together, especially when you are not sure where the roads are leading. Quite a thing actually, believe me. Still, we made it in one piece in Golden Thai Seafood Village. Impressive. Impressively set up, even the compound, upon walking in, you will notice rows and rows, one after the other sea catch confined in aquariums. Sad for the fish, prawns, crabs and what not, whichever sea creatures I noticed. Then again, I am not a vegetarian, so, no point sympathizing. After walking past the quite long aisle, while some family members disputed on what to order, we sat in the spacious dining area. Prettiness and neatness, with a cultural show going on right in front of us on the stage.







Ordering was not an easy feat either. I stayed clear. I didn't want to end up battling, by the way, I am not a fussy eater, so, anything goes for me. One person took charge, as usual while waiting, came the little plates of peanuts. Immediately crunched in since its already 9pm.
Thank god, we didn't have to wait for long. Dishes arrived simultaneously one after the other. Had to be.There were no other customers except us occupying three tables. One table allocated for vegetarians, everyone then immediately, at once tuck into the dishes alongside rice.
Stir Fried Green Mustard Garlic
Asparagus Belacan/Shrimp Paste
Prawn Egg Foo Yong
Grilled Prawns With Custard Sauce
Asam Steamed Fish
Ginger Chili Steamed Fish
Kam Heong Crabs

Not bad. I don't know about the rest, I don't think I should speak on behalf of others, I enjoyed this meal. The simply stir fried sawi/green mustard was appreciated, asparagus belacan killed in the Malaysian authentic tastes, egg omelette was a favourite among the kids, crispy on the outside and soft inside prawn mantis, dipped over the custard sauce was praised, and the two types of fish packed a massive punch. Both may have been cooked with different ingredients, though there were some common ones, both packed the same punch. Spicy and tangy. The big bold forever a must for Malaysians. On the contrary, crab was a let down. Not 100% though, we all wished for another additional doze of spiciness. Having said that, once everyone had satisfied their hunger, they did praise this dinner. So, I was not wrong. Don't ask me now how much we paid, I was later told that it was a bomb truly pricey bill.
