Way back from KL, we dropped by tambum for our dinner. This time we decided to explore a new seafood restaurant in Tambun.

Crossing by those seafood restaurant, several of them were holding wedding functions. Probably is a good wedding month, day?! "ding dong tiang"...at the end, we choose this Restoran Floating.

At first we just thought that Restoran Floating is just only a name, but when we stepped on it, we only realise the whole restaurant its really floating on the big fish pound! We couldn't see much what was surrounding the restaurant, cause it already dark on the night.

清炒菜胆 Stir Fry "Chai Dar" Vegetable
Can tasted a little bit of Chinese wine and wok hei...taste average
Food Taste: 5

炒面条 Fried Mee Diao
Pretty yummy for this mee diao.

Food Taste: 6

清炒甲巴 Stir Fry Kapa
Kapa Size were medium, one size bigger would be yummier. Although we asked for "cheng char" kapa, but they had added in a dollop of bean paste (whole bean) in the dish, it brings up the claim sweetness, pretty delicious...

Food Taste: 7

炸苏东 Deep Fried Sotong in crispy batter
Crispy Crispy Crispy...everything is fine for me, but sotong were too small. i kinda prefer bigger sotong, so you wouldn't feel like eating batter only....haa

Food Taste: 5

After we took our meal...

You know what? we notice the school of fish gathered and circling around when they got shocked by my Camera flash light...haa, cute

    Somehow I still go back to my old faithful restaurant which is Gee Seng. The food there is still good. I love the satay as well as those yummy jellies.

    Don’t forget to visit my blog on 31st July 2008… I have a food contest from then onwards. You can also recommend it to your Penang friends with blogs/websites.
