Long Beach Cafe

There are a few places to eat in [tag]Batu Feringghi[/tag], and [tag]Long Beach Cafe[/tag] is one of them. Among all, I think this has got to be the one with most foreign customers. So the food here is more expensive than the usual in [tag]Penang[/tag].

Because there are too many tourists here, even locals are sometimes mistaken as foreigners. The uncle at the grilled seafood stall talked to me in English lol, until I replied him with Hokkien. They have stingray, crab, prawn and squid but clams. The Kam Heong squid is RM10 for the smallest size, tasted good and went very well with rice.

Pineapple fried rice at RM5, nothing to write home about but the ingredients are aplenty! I gotta try their tuna fried rice one day. Sounds weird but who knows, it may be really good.

These spring roles cost RM3 per piece, pricey eh. To me it’s pretty ordinary, stuffed with Chinese sausages and vegetables.

Chicken chop @ RM7, big portion and yummy especially the buns. Another *ahem* attraction in Batu Feringghi would the night markets along the hotels. It stretches as far a few hundred meters! And it also happens to be the place to get cheapest pirated DVDs in the whole island. At only RM4 per disc, no wonder the kwai los are so happy..

    Gregory – Wow, I am really flattered by your invitation. But I am not a professional photographer so I would have to say ‘no’ to your hiring. I know my photographing skills very well lol. I would be more than happy to be a free wedding photographer for you though! Please let me to bring along a friend too :)

    You should try the chapati or the other foods at the fish stall because I remember 1 being very nice

    just do not try the pancakes i know their dirty secrets!

    I agreed, the place is very dirty and old, so I didn’t go there, before dinner, I strolled along the stretch of night markets and bought some funny t-shirts and souvenirs. Remember to bargain with those stalls. They quoted the price of the t-shirt at RM25 but hubby managed to get it for only RM15 per tee. I saw some really cute piggies shape salt and pepper shakers which are so adorable. Also check out those lamp shades there.
    Behind the night market, I found that a new food court – “FERRINGHI FOOD GARDEN” (opposited the “HAPPY MART”), there is clean and comfortable and the food is nice, I and my wife went to there for 2 days, we tasted Satay, Dumplings, Tandoori, Laksa, Crispy Aromatic Duck, Japanese food and Philippines food.
