On our last day of our Penang trip, we stopped by at Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe at Tanjung Tokong Penang for seafood. This restaurant is situated next to the famous Tua Peh Kong Temple in Tanjung Tokong. It was our first visit there but the hubs has been to this restaurant umpteen times, ever since he was a toddler! This unassuming restaurant looks pretty run down and uninviting but the moment you step down from your car and walk towards it, the aromatic smell of baked crabs and prawns would fill the air. I tell ya, that aroma made me salivate and rumbled my tummy, though my tummy was still stuffed with grub from the morning’s buffet breakfast at Hard Rock Hotel Penang.
The seafood dishes are all cooked in very simple styles. Their signature dish is coal-baked crabs and salt-baked prawns. I was told that the restaurant owner relies on these two signature dishes to pull in customers, near and far.
The food at Sea Pearl Lagoon ain’t cheap. The bill came up to RM158 for seafood and drinks only. The oyster omelette, fried spring chicken and fried popiah are sold at a different stall (located next to Sea Pearl Lagoon) and charged separately.
All in all, the food was good. If you want to enjoy fresh and tasty baked crabs and prawns, Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe is the place to head to. And if you want to visit the loo, you have to get down some steps inside the restaurant. It looks like the restaurant was built on some kind of pre-war fort. Initially, I thought it was a cave!
