Many locals are heading to Pak Hassan’s stall at the complex of Kampung Teluk Tempoyak for fresh and reasonable price seafood. The stall has a splendid view of the rolling gentle sea and fishing vessels.
Quality and freshness of the seafood here is at the best as they serve the catch that comes in every evening to their customers. The most popular seafood items is grilled fish, or commonly known as ikan bakar.
The fish is sliced open and the flesh is topped with homemade chili paste and grilled in banana leaves. The ikan bakar comes with assam sambal mixed with onion and chili. Most customers find the spicy fish delicious.
Besides the ikan bakar, Pak Hassan also serves tempting grilled crabs and prawns with their special combination of soya sauce, chili padi and lime.
Do not miss out the special Nasi Lemak. Cooked with coconut milk and a variety of herbs, the fragrant rice enhances the taste of the grilled seafood. Together with the ikan bilis kuah, the rice is a great combination with the seafood. Plenty of refreshing cool beverages are available which includes the umbra juice, lychee and the creamy coconut shakes.
Located at the southeastern tip of the Penang, the quaint fishing village of Teluk Tempoyak is an ideal place for a fun getaway on the island. This Malay village with a stretch of beach has makeshift and uneven wooden jetties extending from the shore into the sea.
