Seafood

Din­ner­time East Coast BBQ

De­spite the fact that thou­sands of com­muters pass this food court ev­ery day as they travel to or from Ge­orge Town, Sun­gai Pi­nang Food Court re­mains far off the tourist’s well-trod­den path… and per­haps that’s a good thing. Af­ter ap­pre­ci­at­ing the fes­tive lights that hang from the nearby trees, you’ll no­tice the many pulled­to­gether ta­bles oc­cu­pied by large groups of fam­i­lies and friends, com­pletely cov­ered with plates of food. Many of the stalls of­fer dishes best suited for shar­ing, from luk luk to sa­tay. How­ever, the main at­trac­tion is East Coast BBQ Seafood, which of­fers a mas­sive se­lec­tion of fresh fish and veg­eta­bles each night. Ev­ery group you see will have at least one dish from this fa­mous Pe­nang stall on their ta­ble. The scents waft­ing up from the large open grill will make your mouth wa­ter as you watch the hawker chefs ex­pertly fil­let­ing their fish, stuff­ing them with gar­lic, lemon­grass and other de­light­ful gar­nishes be­fore cook­ing them to per­fec­tion and dish­ing them up to their loyal cus­tomers. Once you get the bill, you’ll un­der­stand why lo­cals may want to keep this place to them­selves – the seafood is some of the is­land’s least ex­pen­sive, and worth ev­ery cent.
