Khun Thai Teluk Kumbar | Seafood By The Beach

Lou Sang or Prosperity Toss is one of the South East Asia Chinese big things. Believe to bring good luck, Yee Sang or Yusheng is a popular dish during Chinese New Year (Spring Festival) particularly in Malaysia or Singapore. And, we landed at Khun Thai Restaurant in Teluk Kumbar Penang for ‘Siu Kang Jiu’ or literally translated to ‘The End of Work Feast’ that took place prior to Chinese New Year celebration.

If you’re familiar with Good Friend Seafood that sits behind the Yellow Bus building then, Khun Thai is further up on the road on the way to Gertak Sanggul fishing village. Or if you have been to Hai Boey Seafood in Teluk Kumbar, then Khun Thai Restaurant is sitting adjacent to it. Since Khun Thai and Hai Beoy Seafood Restaurants are off the main road, running close to beach front, the sandy strip here is more idyllic compares to the others nearby. And another plus is their parking bays are aplenty, besides it is free of charge and you’d be assisted by an in-house traffic warden during peak hours.
