Seabrew Restaurant, Bar & Cafe | Gurney Drive, Penang
There is a new watering hole for networking and the business community to chill out at the Seabrew Restaurant Bar & Cafe, Penang. This trendy place anchor on the other end of seafront Gurney Drive promenade just a stone’s throw from commercial banks, hotels, and office blocks.
Penang is the foodie’s dream paradise for the all-day and all-night street food. Tourist-friendly Gurney Drive promenade is a favorite place for locals on their evening walks and jogs.
The most varied and tantalizing array of seafood and dining in Penang. This is the perfect spot for night owls who crave some tasty delicacies at the oddest hours.
Seabrew Restaurant Bar & Cafe’s location on Gurney Drive, Penang is perfect. The opening hours from 7.00 am to 2.00 am are great for an early breakfast and a cuppa. You can drop in for lunch and stay for tea. Or have a few drinks after work and while away the hours for dinner and stay up late to meet friends and business partners.
The restaurant has an open concept and is cool with some sea breezes the night we went. The dining environment is nice and is quite cozy. We enjoyed the live band performance during our dinner. The duo sings both English and Canto Pop numbers. The band plays on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
Sea Brew is a great place to enjoy some drinks with friends and hang out at the newly opened restaurant on the quieter stretch of Gurney Drive. Why fight with the crowds for parking, right?
On the tap are Heineken and Guinness Stout drafts. I’m told that “draught-like” quality creates a smooth beer with a very dense head rather like the Guinness that you get on-tap in Ireland.
Steam Pot to Enjoy Fresh Seafood
Seabrew Restaurant Bar & Cafe has an interesting steam pot where you can eat healthily with 100% steamed seafood in the fully air-conditioned dining area.
Customers can select Live Seafood – All Swims in Tanks! The kitchen will prepare it ready to be streamed at the dining table. Seafood lovers will enjoy this Steam Pot which can cook a whole Fish, Crabs, and all kinds of Shellfish! Big La La, Small La La, Scallops? NO PROBLEM
What’s Beneath the Steam Pot?
To start cooking, add in rice grains and a little water into the stone pot without any seasoning. The rice is cooked in the stone pot before the steaming process starts. Place the steamer with your seafood on top, cover, and steam.
As the seafood is being steamed, the juices and essence dripped down to flavor and enrich the porridge. The porridge absorbs the ‘fresh’ seafood taste for a smoother and richer flavor. Finish up all the seafood and open up the steamer to taste a different kind of porridge!
The result is a smooth and steamy delicious ‘Seafood’ Porridge!
You eat that with the juicy shellfish and fish. There are accompanying sauces and dips which the kitchen will prepare for you to your request.
Vegetables are available for order for the steam pot to balance your palate. The most popular with drinkers are okra which is steamed fresh and eaten with a special sauce.
There is a wide range of selection from the Western Menu which we tried on two previous occasions. We tried the fresh mushroom soup which was tasty and delicious. We had a Seafood Carbonara, the pasta al dente and the sauce creamy and good.
For our dinner tonight we decided to try the Chicken and Fish Dishes cooked Western Style for a change!
We tried the beautifully cooked Sea Bass and Salmon. The fish is moist and perfect!
Coffee & Desserts
For the sweet tooth, there are coffees and sweet decadent desserts to try. Just look at the photos. All to die for and to satisfy your sweet tooth craving!
There are two air-conditioned private rooms on the first floor. This is conducive to seminars, conferences, workshops, and discussions.
