Authentic Thai @ Tan Jetty
You just gotta come to this place.
It is authentic Thai, the Penang way.
Cause the venue is so uniquely Penang.
I can't even find words to describe it.
Whether you are a tourist or a local, if you have not been here, please go and try it.
The food is good.
The atmosphere and ambience is great.
If your timing is not good, you need to bring 'patience' along cause it may be a long wait.
That said, it's not all bad cause you can soak in the richness and originality of Penang.
Maybe the best time is just before sunset, sometimes you may bump into couples taking their wedding photos during this time, also if you are the early bird, the wait is not that long.
So, what's good here ?
They serve laksa for lunch.
It's rather authentic Thai cause the chefs are Thai.
Most things here are nice and reasonably priced.
These deep fried mushrooms and chili sauce goes superbly well with beer.
Fish of the day is fresh and it comes with a little bit of extra gravy.
Everything is spicy :-)
Seating on stilts.
How can you beat that ?
Watching the sun set in front of your eyes.
Penang indeed has it all ...
And this is the thing I always say about Penang.
Penang is so 'real', all this heritage is not a show.
It is real life, everyday life intertwined with heritage.
In the midst of your meal, you have this playful little boy, not wearing any shorts, running around and having a good time fooling with his brother.
