I just realized that I have two blog posts on food back to back, and this is not even a food blog. Just felt like sharing what filled my stomach during christmas this year. Bare with me.
Yesterday I joined my girlfriend's family for christmas eve seafood dinner. Naturally, today for my christmas dinner I had it with my family. Coincidentally, it's at a seafood restaurant as well. This round, our choice of location was not some far away state, but rather in our very own Penang Island.

Weld Quay Tree Shade Seafood Restaurant. The main reason there's a "Tree Shade" in the restaurant name is because directly at the front doorstep of the restaurant there's a huge tree. It must be good fengshui that's why the owner never took it down even though it was actually blocking the entrance walkway.
We had to order our dishes at the front counter as there is nobody to ask for your orders at the table. It's rather different from the conventional way where the waitress will ask your choice of dishes at your table. Here you have to order it yourself. Well, it's okay for me as I'm more interested in the quality of the food.
While waiting for the food to arrive, we were served the usual fare of finger snacks, this time it was some crackers. What kind of surprised me was, our dishes were served within 15 minutes. And this included one steamed fish! Normally steamed fish would take a longer time to be served due to the obvious reason; the need to steam it. It's true what my friends told me about this restaurant, the waiting time for food to be served is short. It's a good point, since we were already quite hungry when we arrived, and the food came just in time.
Below are the photos of the dishes I managed to capture.

Overall the food was good, but a bit on the salty side. If they had been less liberal on the salt and soy sauce, it'll taste much better. Now 3 out of 4 of my dishes were too salty. The price was acceptable. It is not dirt cheap, not expensive either, just acceptable. Rm69 for four persons today.
