Sekinchan - The Food

As promised, this is the entry about food, the food that most likely to beat Riverview Restaurant's. Our local friend, Mr. Phua brought us to this restaurant. Erm.... sorry, non hahal...

Actually Mr. Phua had got the fresh supply of seafood from the wharf before hand and brought them to the restaurant for them to cook. The dishes my look simple without much food presentation, they're really tasty and marvelous. Among the dishes we had:
1. Sweet and sour meat crab. Very nice and the fragrance of the crabs were trapped within and enhanced by the thick sauce.

2. Spicy fish cubes. I don't quite like it because it's cooked with salted beans (taucu). I don't like taucu and any dish cook with taucu will be banned from my list. However, everyone love this dish so much that they reorder the dish....

3. The fried mantis prawn with dried chili. Just ok for me. The mantis prawn was a bit too chewy (but then it's chewy because it's fresh, those we normally had were soft because it's not fresh).

4. Stir fried vegie. Simple but tasted so good that it's the first dish that got cleared up.

5. My favourite, the crispy, fragrant and juicy butter prawn. The prawns were lightly battered, deep fried, and stir fried with some spices. MUST TRY! Really, this one beat the Riverview's .

6. The steam prawns were superbly done. You can really taste the freshness of the prawn! Oh, by the way, a bit of wine were added to get rid of the 'undesirable' smell. Nice!

Other dishes (sorry no pic, too busy eating...) were 'ikan parang' fish ball soup (the best fish ball i'd ever had), stir-fried cabbage with crispy dried shrimps and steamed pomfrets. Too bad, it's not halal, otherwise would love to bring my blogger friends to try out this restaurant. The dishes were so yummy that even my niece baby Emily grinned from ear to ear.

Note: Sekinchan is a famous fish village with their superb seafood. Many chinese would spend two to three hours drive from KL just to taste the heavenly dishes. Two reason why the seafood here tasted so good: One, the freshness of the seafood supply. Two, seafood are the local's main dishes throughout generation.

Josh, why don't you ask the Towkay to open a small branch nextdoor serving seafood only and halal one...? you become shareholder laa... hehe... sure laku one... you got so many blogger frenz maa... hehe...

Josh said...

[danial] aik? gatal ke? ehehheehe.. I know. you're allergic to prawns and crabs... kesian... Takpe, we don't order seafood when you're around.

[kingkong] hehehe... makan is a very enjoyable pass time tau.
bukak branch? takyah lah kingkong, yang Riverview tu dah cukup bagus. Kedai yg Josh pergi ni ada dua, tiga dishes je yang lebih sedap, yang lain Riverview menang. Kita gi Riverview je lah.
