Foodies, we’re bringing you to another food adventure! This time around, it’s no fancy cafe or restaurant but a humble food court (oh really?). Many like the idea of getting lots of local cravings fixed at one stop. Some like to choose from a range of foods, it’s pleasing to the eye. If you’re one of the categories, we have brought you to the right place — Fisherman’s Wharf Penang.
Are Ya’ Ready Foodies?
Previously known as BSP Waterfront Food Court, locals are no stranger to this “Karpal Singh Food Court”. It has underwent a huge transformation and turned into Fisherman’s Wharf Penang. With new management and menus and vendors, even the name sounds more convincing and atas. Take a look at their interior and you’ll know why.
Beautifully decorated with lanterns and spot lights, the place is a lot brighter than before. In fact, stalls are also standardized into a wooden-sailor kind of theme, which matches with the lights.
Tables and chairs are better organized, looking more spacious and comfortable. There’s also a section with coloured chairs and wooden tables, overlooking the seafront, it feels like we’re on deck. This is the best spot for people-watching and some sea breeze while enjoying your meal.
What to Eat at Fisherman’s Wharf Penang:
We got ourselves to sit at the Beer Garden, which is a bar-kind of atmosphere, high long tables and stools, seafront-view as well. These are dishes that we ordered, and guess what, none of us was disappointed. (Warning: Content might be dangerously seductive.)
Craving for some pizzas but you’re out at a hawker center? Fisherman’s Wharf Penang is here to serve you. We ordered the Four Seasons Pizza,with four different toppings. Some might be skeptical of hawker stall’s pizzas, low-cost and inedible. Nope this pizza satisfied our taste bud and we craved for more. Crispy and thin crust with generous toppings and a coat of cheese, everything balances off so well.
“San Pei Ji” or Three Cups Chicken, the name might sound funny but it’s a popular chicken dish among the Chinese. Using three cups of sauces to marinate and cook the chicken in a pot. The chicken is tender, well-marinated with soy sauce, topped with spring onion for extra flavour. It’s the best combination when paired with rice.
You might think the Lam Mee is nothing to shout out, people only reach for it when they’re sick. But the prawn broth is so thick we have say it out. The bihun (rice vermicelli) and yellow noodles are at the perfect portion, topped with egg slices, prawns, cilantro and more. Again, the soup is a win, pair with their sambal if you want extra kick.
Churn everything down with Fisherman’s Wharf Penang’s bestselling honey lemon drink. Looks just like soda drinks, so pretty don’t you think? Everything is 100% natural, fresh lemon juice with butterfly-pea flower which makes the drink purple-blue. SOOO REFRESHING.
The Pasembur looks very…..bloody and a little scary, that’s because the uncle use honest ingredients. Spicy and nutty, pick your ingredients at the stall and watch how the uncle turns them into a plate of magical goodness. Mix everything together and shove into your mouth, oddly satisfying.
Again, many think that Shio Bak (roasted pork) is nothing to rave about, every chicken rice stall has it. We’re here to prove you wrong, YOU MUST ORDER THIS. The skin is so crispy like it’s fresh out of the roaster, yet the meat are so fatty and juicy. Imagine the combination, it’s a sinful indulgence. Forget about diet for a day please.
Japanese corner is like a hidden gem to your complete meal. We ordered the Spicy Cheese Butter Chicken set out of curiosity and my, luckily we did. The chicken is fried to perfection, tender and crispy, paired with the mayo and cheese plus a dust of chili powder. It’s not spicy at all, but so flavourful, perfect dish to pair with the Japanese rice and soup. One set and your meal is complete.
Ps: We also ordered the Thai Style Fried Glass Noodle with Prawns, but it was too good it went into our stomach even before we got to take pictures of it. The noodles soak up the the flavours of the prawns, that’s why every bite has the fresh seafood taste. The prawns, big and juicy.
Final Thought :
Fisherman’s Wharf Penang has definitely upgraded a lot compared to the previous tenant. Food wise, we definitely love it, just look at the photos and it’s clear. Ambiance, a plus point since it’s located near the seafront. The stalls are pretty Instagrammable and overall it’s clean. We would definitely come back for more!
