Review: Cheng Kee Seafood Restaurant, Sg Pelek

Sungai Pelek, located about 20 minutes from the Sepang International Circuit, seems like an unlikely place for tourists – but that was what the fam and I were there for recently, to see what the small town had to offer. First order of the day – lunch! Owing to its close proximity to the river and the sea (Sungai Pelek literally means ‘weird river’ in Malay … Continue reading Review: Cheng Kee Seafood Restaurant, Sg Pelek

Review: Betong Chicken @ Ta Yern Chinese Restaurant, Betong, Thailand

The sun sets early in Betong, a quaint border town straddling the edge of the Malaysian state of Perak and Thailand’s southernmost province, Yala. By 6PM, the sky goes completely dark, shutters close, and the lights come on for night businesses – bright, white fluorescent ones for the streetfood stalls, seedy red ones for some massage parlours and bars. It was too late to do … Continue reading Review: Betong Chicken @ Ta Yern Chinese Restaurant, Betong, Thailand

What to Eat in Jenjarom – New Double Day Seafood Restaurant

Before heading out on our day trip to Jenjarom, we searched up stuff to eat. The town has numerous seafood and bak kut teh restaurants: but since neither piqued Moo’s fancy, we decided on a place called Kim Mua Lau, which serves three cup chicken. Drove into town following the address provided by blogs; ended up going in circles around the village area. Also why … Continue reading What to Eat in Jenjarom – New Double Day Seafood Restaurant

Review: Coconut Flower Restaurant, Teluk Gong Port Klang

“Where are we going for lunch again?” “Coconut Flower.” – mom  I was thoroughly confused by the name, seeing that the restaurant served neither coconut nor flower-based dishes lol. What it really was – a huge and airy seafood place in the fishing area of Teluk Gong, Port Klang. Teluk Gong used to be a fishing/agricultural village, but its vast palm oil, cocoa and coconut … Continue reading Review: Coconut Flower Restaurant, Teluk Gong Port Klang

Malaysia Day Special – Lobster Burger @ Pince and Pints, Bangsar KL

I love burgers. I also love lobsters. So when I heard that Pince & Pints – the lobster experts over at Bangsar, KL – is coming up with a special dish combining both, in conjunction with Malaysia Day, there was no way I could say no. There aren’t too many places in KL that serve fresh, affordable lobster, so when the Singaporean franchise made its way … Continue reading Malaysia Day Special – Lobster Burger @ Pince and Pints, Bangsar KL

Food Review: Manhattan Fish Market, Mid Valley Megamall KL

C and I were at Mid Valley Megamall over the weekend for the Pet Expo! But, as usual, first order of the day was lunch. After walking around for a bit, we decided on Manhattan Fish Market. Despite the name, it’s a local chain that serves seafood with a fusion of flavours, from Malaysian to Western and Mediterranean. The quality among the different outlets varies, … Continue reading Food Review: Manhattan Fish Market, Mid Valley Megamall KL

Xiwang Village Seafood Restaurant, Port Dickson

The last time I was in Port Dickson (a couple of years ago, with C and El), we had an awesome seafood dinner at Xiwang Village Seafood Restaurant. This time around, I brought my fam here with high hopes… but they fell a little short. The food was still decent, but it lacked the awesomeness it used to have. Also, prices have gone through the roof … Continue reading Xiwang Village Seafood Restaurant, Port Dickson

Seafood @ Sinsuran Night Market, Kota Kinabalu Sabah

Located on the west coast of Sabah, Kota Kinabalu is a seaside town famed for its beautiful islands. It would be blasphemy, then, to come here and not tuck into its delicious seafood. One of the best places to get some is at the Sinsuran Night Market. Featuring dozens of stalls, each displaying gigantic lobsters, huge shrimps, colourful fishes of all shapes and sizes, giant oysters … Continue reading Seafood @ Sinsuran Night Market, Kota Kinabalu Sabah
