I was lucky to have been brought to this restaurant to try something that they are quite popular for - their Soon Hock fish. Apparently this fish is also known as Marble Goby fish in English and considered one of the largest species in Malaysia. Also one of the more expensive kind.No surprise as the one that we were served was a whole whopping 7kgs and priced at Rm180 per kg, you can imagine just how much our meal came up to.Because we did not want to only have one dish, the person that brought
No surprise as the one that we were served was a whole whopping 7kgs and priced at Rm180 per kg, you can imagine just how much our meal came up to.
Because we did not want to only have one dish, the person that brought us to this restaurant suggested that we have half the fish steamed and the other fried. Smart move because this way we have more varieties.
There's something very meaty about the Soon Hock. While some fish are soft & tender, this was crunchy, juicy and also succulent. I do not know how to describe it exactly but there is definitely no need for rice as you eat this fish. They also gave us different kinds of condiments, two being requested by a friend as she's the regular customer there. So she asked for a plate of fried shallots & garlic with some soya sauce for everyone and said that this is good to eat with the fish - which was very true. Then chili & garlic in soya sauce, fish sauce and some lime juice which happened to be my favourite.
The service there is excellent even if there were many other tables filled with patrons.
I think, if you're either going up to or coming down from Genting, this is a nice place to stop by for a meal. Especially if you enjoy fish and would like a good meal from time to time.
Other Info. : Apparently some of the larger fishes are caught by the boss himself as he enjoys fishing.(The above review is the personal opinion of a user which does not represent OpenRice's point of view.)
