Long Beach Café

A popular hawkers market located in beachfront district Batu Ferringhi, away from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. Long Beach Café offers dozens of flavor-packed meals that won't break the bank. Noodle dishes like laksa and mie goreng abound, while other options include Indian curries, Thai classics like pad Thai, satay sticks, kebabs, and even pizza and pasta.

Meal offerings are more international than traditional Malay hawker stalls, but the concept is still the same. Snatch up a free numbered table then send one member of your group to order a dish or two from a handful of hawker stalls. When each meal is ready, the vendor will bring it to your table and collect your cash. The sole drink vendor is the exception, sending staff to each newly occupied table to collect drink orders.

After your meal, have a look around the Batu Ferringhi Night Markets, located along Jalan Batu Ferringhi, directly in front of Long Beach Café.

Backstory

Long Beach Café is a favorite dining destination of tourists and expats staying in beachfront town, Batu Ferringhi. Many hawker stalls in the food court's vast collection have been handed down generation to generation. Some stalls specialize in a specific cuisine like Thai, while others have perfected and only sell one dish, like satay. The venue increased in popularity after appearing in Season 8, Episode 9 of Anthony Bordain's food focused TV show, "No Reservations"

Scorecard

Best Parts:
  • Variety of cuisines including Malay, Indian, Japanese, Thai, and Western.
  • Value for money. Fill up on large meals for low prices.
  • Prompt service. Meals are freshly prepared relatively quickly.
  • Location next to the Batu Ferringhi Night Markets.
  • Hygiene. Tables, stalls, and cooking utensils are always very clean.
Could Be Better:
  • Crowded during peak periods. It can be hard to find a free table after 8pm on weekends. When one group leaves, multiple standers by can rush to compete for the newly-free table.
  • Quite touristy. Many stalls cater to tastes of tourists rather than offering traditional Malay hawker food.
  • Quality of service. Servers can sometimes lack English skills or seem impolite. The drink vendor may insist you buy a drink, even if you don't want one.
  • Facilities like basic toilets and a very small parking lot.
