The Best Seafood in Penang

Penang is a Malaysian island filled with the best seafood spots. Since Penang is surrounded by a large sea, seafood is a common indulgence for both locals and non-locals. If you love seafood, be sure to check out these spots for the best seafood in Penang.

Hai Boey Seafood

As one of the highest-rated seafood restaurants in Penang, Hai Boey Seafood deserves a visit. Their signature dish is the Fried Brinjal, and you can enjoy it while feeling the cool breeze and enjoying the view of the ocean. All seafood dishes here are fresh and affordable, so if you have ever wanted to try some shrimp, this is the place to go.

Pang Hainan Seafood

People usually recommend Pang Hainan Seafood not only for its food but also its great service and generous dining space. You can have a selection of fresh seafood, such as prawns, clams, oysters, lobsters, crabs and scallops. The chef can prepare them for you in a variety of ways, making each dish feel fresh every time you eat there.

Ocean Green Restaurant

Ocean Green Restaurant is a bit fancier than the other seafood joints, and just like Pang Hainan Seafood, your food is prepared in many ways. The Baked Cheese Crab is highly recommended, and you can delight your taste buds while enjoying a great view of the beach. The restaurant is located off Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah and is a very popular dining destination.

Bali Hai Seafood Market

Boosting a very generous dining space, perfect for bringing family and friends, and an assortment of Chinese-based seafood, Bali Hai Seafood Market deserves to be on your list of seafood spots to try in Penang. You get to pick your own live seafood from the live aquariums and watch the chefs in professional  chef uniforms prepare the food right before your eyes. You will find the spot along Gurney Drive, and it has a nice outdoor sitting area with fans and water jets that make the temperature very pleasant..

Ah Chui Seafood

As you enter Ah Chui Seafood, you will be able to see the open kitchen area where your food is masterfully prepared. This brings life to this seemingly boring restaurant as it is a joy to watch the chefs do their magic and scream orders to one another from across the kitchen area. And the food is not bad either; be sure to try their signature dish: the grilled stingray.

Finding seafood in Penang is not hard. The good thing is that there are plenty of good places to try, and the ones listed above should narrow down your search for the best seafood in Penang.

Points to Remember When Visiting Penang on a Keto Diet

If you’re on a keto diet, you already know that fat is your friend and carbs/sugar are your enemies, so that should give you a basic starting point when determining which foods to should avoid and stick to during a trip away from home. However, some foreign recipes may incorporate unfamiliar components that contain more carbs than you expected, so it’s good to be prepared with a list of foods that you should try while on a trip to Penang. There are lots of Malaysian foods that go against the keto diet, so consider this a rough guide on what to eat and what not to eat while you’re there.

Supermarket Staples to Stock up On

If you’re headed to the grocery store in Penang, you’ll be glad to know that there are plenty of items that provide excellent sources of fat, many of which you’re probably already eating at home. For starters, you should be able to pick up some avocados, butter, olive oil, cream, hard cheese, mayo, peanut butter, nuts, coconut milk, and eggs in just about any store in Penang. You may also want to bring a popular Keto supplement like Nutrigold 7 Keto to make your job of keeping it keto simple, no matter the circumstances.

Keeping It Keto at Penang Restaurants

Unfortunately, most Malaysian dishes contain sugar, rice, or noodles, all of which are no-no’s when you’re on a keto diet. Although your menu options will be somewhat restricted, oftentimes you can tell your server to hold the rice or noodles or specify that you want “only meat” with no sauce or sides, and you should be able to get by that way. There are many menu options that you can keep as-is though, such as some tofu and seafood dishes. Keep in mind that breaking the keto diet and consuming more than your keto carb limit will set you back more than just one night because it will take a couple days for your metabolism to re-enter full ketosis.

Avoid the Street Food Stands

When you’re out enjoying the sights in Penang, you may run into street food stalls, particularly in the New Lane Street and Street Hawker areas. While some of these food stalls will have a few keto-friendly options, if you can help it, you should just avoid these areas altogether because the intensely appealing aromas of all that authentic food in one place could tempt you to break your diet. Although restaurants obviously smell good too, when you’re out in the fresh air around street food stalls, the smell is strong that you’re practically already tasting the food, so the temptation is often too much to resist.

Penang Is a Doable Keto Destination

Ultimately, everywhere you go you’re going to encounter foods that contain carbs, but even in Penang where most of the signature dishes contain rice, noodles, sauces, or sugar, you can still get by just fine by heeding the tips given above. In closing, stocking up on backup food upon arrival and bringing your favorite keto shakes are two preliminary steps you should take to avoid breaking your diet while on vacation.
