Townview Seafood Cafe @ Macalister Road, Penang

Last Friday, hubby decided to eat out for dinner. So he informed me early not to cook for the night. As a lazy wife like me, I am so happy as I can relax for a day. hahhahahhaa..... Without knowing where should be go for dinner, hubby drove down to town and when we are in Macalister Road, hubby spotted this cafe. So he make a U turn and decided to give it a try. So my gal and I have not objection but just concern about the waiting time. lol

Hubby as usual go and make the ordering and gal and I are busy looking at the aquarium with different kind of prawns and also some fishes. Sorry, I did not took any photos of it. Then we were seated. After a while..... came the waitress who order our drinks. And we waited for quite sometime for the foods being served. Later we found out that they just open on Friday, 30th October 2009. But their open ceremony will be much more later date. So we can understand that the new staffs still need some more time to familiar with the operation. But their service are great.
So for that night we order:
Pak Chiok Prawn ~ RM18
This is always has been their signature dishes. And both gal and I are the prawn queen, we enjoyed eating it very much. The prawn is just cook to the perfect timing. And we also have some one to help us to remove the prawn shell. lol Oh... I guess I don;t remembered to take the chili photos again. So forgetful of me. lol
Stir fry Kailan ~ RM6
Hubby and I love the kailan very much. It is very young kailan and the textures is so crunchy and sweet.
3 cup chickens ~ RM10
Hubby ordered 3 cup chickens to try and the taste is quite nice. But if you don't like basil. Then you should skip this dish. All of us take basil , so we love it very much. However, hubby and I found that the chicken piece is too big.
Curry Fish ~ RM20
This curry is very nice. A bit sourish and spicy. My gal found it too spicy for her liking. But she cannot resist the curry aroma. And she put some curry to go with the rice. Mind you, she took more than one bowl of rice that night.
There are many fish meats in there and also lots of brinjal, tomatoes,lady fingers....... At the end when we foot the bill, we realised that the fish that we had taken is around 400gm but it seems too many for us. lol

*****TownView Seafood Cafe are running special promotion right now for their opening. That is all the CRABS, any style of cooking is just RM23 per KG. So for the crabs lover out there, grab this opportunity and try it out! (But it is only applicable for dine in.)*****
I will certainly go back for the crab meals...... lol
