Jitra, the 4th largest town in Kedah after Alor Setar, Sungai Petani and Kulim do have few famous restaurant selling Thai food, and due to the close proximity to the Thai border, the Thai food served is authentic and good.
One of the most famous restaurant is Rung Reang, a restaurant even known by few of my friends from Kuala Lumpur.
The crowd here is amazing. We reach there around at 9 PM, and almost all table were full. We were also told that we need to wait quite long for our food.

Thanks to Axian, I get to know this place, the famous Good Friend Seafood at far far other end of George Town, Teluk Kumbar. Since I don’t know where the hell is Teluk Kumbar, it took me more than an hour to reach there from George Town. I blame my stupid GPS to the max as it didn’t ask me to U-turn but lead me to make a huge huge round until I need to pass by Queensbay Mall twice! Duhhhh!
However, upon reaching there, it makes me feel awesome. Although the beach here ain’t the best in Penang, neither is the sand is white and soft, nor the sea is crystal clear, but it do gives a very nice feeling. Firstly it’s a fish village, and the owner of Good Friend Seafood are fisherman for the past few generations. You can see loads of fishing boat line up along the beach. Secondly, the restaurant is located at the beach itself, and being able to dine at a beach is really wonderful!

UPDATED on 16/04/2010:
Ah’ Basri Satay had moved permanently to D’ Piazza Mall at Bayan Lepas area (Jalan Mahsuri near PISA). Since is located inside a complex, the restaurant feel is something like Old Town Kopitiam now. Well, can’t say it’s bad but I sorta prefer their old shop style. Besides, ever since they move here, their business seems improved a lot, thus lead to customer service become lacking. Now you will have to order and pay at the counter 1st, and not like last time where you can just sit there and wait. This is not a problem for your 1st order, but if you were want to make more order, going to the counter again (especially if you are sitting upstairs) is quite troublesome. Also, the satay served was not hot at all. Sad to say, Ah’ Basri is never the same Ah’ Basri again.
Ah’ Basri Satay, some say serves the best satay in Penang. Besides, they do serve something really special, Horse Satay. Yes, you see it correctly, it’s horse. I personally never heard of any other restaurant serving horse meat, let alone in the form of Satay!
It’s interesting to see someone actually set up a shop to sell satay alone as normally people will just set up a small stall selling it. Besides, Ah’ Basri Satay is quite cozy to dine in if you compare to other place that sell satay. Clean environment with plants around the sitting area is another thumbs up too. Another good thing about here is they do provide a small parking area for their customers, however if you come too late it will most likely full.
