To start with, you have to appreciate the location where Ikan Bakar Adnan bin Hassan is located. At the tail end of the island, you’ll have to travel for probably close to 45 mins to 1 hour from the heart of the island to reach this place, depending if you actually get lost or not.

The restaurant itself is of a medan selara sort of set up, and Adnan bin Hassan is the corner shop offering the most selection of any stalls there.

There are usually quite a few selection of seafood to be chosen from, ranging from siakap, kerapu, bawal, ikan merah, janahak, udang, and ketam. Price list is clearly stated on the wall as well, which is always helpful. The fishes are supposedly supplied by local fishermen.

I liked the way they fish is grilled here, split down the middle with ample sweet and positively hot sambal plastered within the center, and more spicy & sour sambal served on the side just in case you can and want to handle more hotness. The seafood was plenty fresh when we were there as well.

Squid from the neighboring stall wasn’t nearly as satisfying though, so choose your poison carefully.

For those of you who complained that there isn’t any halal food entry for Penang, here’s one yah! Happy dining!

We’re also traveling to London on the 9/10/15 to 12/10/15 for a short 3 day 3 night trip, flying with Malaysian Airline, I will be meeting up a local foodie, Karen, it’ll be exciting!

  3. KY, that some good fish there. I like to use flounder to make fried fish and hold sauce well. What kind of fish was that used for your meal? Sure look very good and lot of meat on it.
