Teluk Kumbar Good Friend Seafood Restaurant (GPS: 5.28644, 100.233), or Hao Eu 公巴好友海鲜 is a seaside restaurant in Teluk Kumbar. Good Friend Seafood is popular because it is priced relatively reasonable, and draws crowds of patrons, especially during the weekends. It is one of my favourite seafood restaurants in Penang. Its proximity to the residential places in Bayan Baru, Bayan Lepas as well as the new housing estates in Batu Maung, Sungai Batu and Teluk Kumbar provides it a good catchment of regular customers.

Located at the beach of Teluk Kumbar, Good Friend Seafood has a nice view, especially in the evening, when the sun is setting. The restaurant is nothing pretty, just a collection of sheds and tables arranged on the beach.

Also available at Good Friend Seafood is Batu Maung Satay, so named because it was introduced to the public in Batu Maung, at another now defunct seafood restaurant. The satay is different from regular satay in that it does not come with a dip - the sauce has been added to the meat when served.

Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
