Located right above the waters of Tanjung City Marina, Hai Nan Town isn’t a typical new world kopitiam setting – at least the one at Tanjung City Marina is a far cry from that. Overlooking the waters of Penang Port, the Tanjung City Marina outlet is a stone’s throw from the ferry terminal in Penang. The Sungai Nibong may not have breathtaking views but rest assured the food is just as good.
Featuring arches from way back in the days, tiled floors with a sprinkle of stone accents, dark wood on tables and ceiling this place is the crème de la crème of kopitiam concept outlets.
It’s so beautiful that they have even hosted weddings in this place, so you can imagine how huge this place is. There is an appeal to get married by their pier, isn’t there?
The tender chicken pieces laced with fragrant bits of lemongrass and curry that will numb your tongue goes great with rice. The blend of ingredients makes the dish unleash aromas that will send your tummy into a grumbling frenzy.
Those that enjoy the gamey taste of mutton or prefer less spicy dishes can opt for the Hainanese Mutton Stew with meaty chunks and thick, smooth gravy. Braised with mushrooms and carrots for some natural sweetness, this stew may cause excessive drooling to unsuspecting victims.
