Wanchai Seafood Street @ Zhuhai, China

Zhuhai is located in the Canton province of China, hence many restaurants here are serving Canton Cuisine (粤菜), one of the 4 major subdivisions cuisine in China.

Fresh live seafood is prominent in Canton cuisine, and according to them, fresh live seafood are best cooked with by steaming, with only little used of seasoning to bring out the natural sweetness of live seafood.

While most authentic Cantonese cuisine restaurants have live seafood tanks in their restaurants, Wanchai Seafood Street in Zhuhai bring it up to another level.

There are more than 10 restaurants serving authentic Cantonese cuisine here, and while all the restaurants here does not have live seafood tanks, behind these restaurants are a whole stretch of stalls selling all sorts of live seafood.

Walking past here is just like walking at Petaling Street in Malaysia where you are being shouted to asked you visit their shop, telling you that they are offering the cheapest price or even sell you are a price that they actually making a lost. It’s really a mess as since I visited this place during lunch where there are not much customers, we are the target of every stalls here.

However, it’s also a wonderful experience since many seafood sold here are not sold in almost every wet market in Malaysia. Most of them I don’t even know their name.

Teluk Kumbar Good Friend Seafood @ Penang

Thanks to Axian, I get to know this place, the famous Good Friend Seafood at far far other end of George Town, Teluk Kumbar. Since I don’t know where the hell is Teluk Kumbar, it took me more than an hour to reach there from George Town. I blame my stupid GPS to the max as it didn’t ask me to U-turn but lead me to make a huge huge round until I need to pass by Queensbay Mall twice! Duhhhh!

However, upon reaching there, it makes me feel awesome. Although the beach here ain’t the best in Penang, neither is the sand is white and soft, nor the sea is crystal clear, but it do gives a very nice feeling. Firstly it’s a fish village, and the owner of Good Friend Seafood are fisherman for the past few generations. You can see loads of fishing boat line up along the beach. Secondly, the restaurant is located at the beach itself, and being able to dine at a beach is really wonderful!
