Todak is one of the many seafood restaurants that most Singaporeans will visit in JB.We were there on a Sunday night and it was no surprise that the place is fully packed with people and we have to stand there and wait for quite sometime before getting a table even though we were not in big groups. As the crowd was kind of beyond control, it will be best that customers secure seating on their own. However, one thing that you have to be very sure is that, waiting time for food is still within the acceptable limit.
As Todak is located just opposite Singapore divining by the sea, one good advantage is that some of us are actually able to received Singapore's Telecom reception.
Todak These golden fried buns were big and definite good to dip into the chilli sauce of the crab. They were not too greasy and the outer layer of it is crispy.
Buns - RM 10 Lala was pretty interesting as it was stirred fried and came in some curry, sweet chilli taste. It was fragrant and addictive, thus the plate was quickly done up shortly after it was served. Calms were fresh and chewy and the gravy is a perfect pairing to the bowl of white rices.
Lala (Small) - RM 12
Ingredients of Fu Rong Egg is generous and it was fried to crisp.
Fu Rong Egg (Small) - RM 6 Grouper was charged at RM 10 for per 100g
. There are variable ways to have the fish to be served and we had decided to have it cooked in Teochew Style. Not to mention that the fish was truly fresh as we were given the choice to choose the desire fish out of the big container of live fishes. It was well prepared without any stinky seafood smell however, do not expect that the scale is 100% removed. The broth was light and refreshing, not overly salty as those preserved vegetables were placed sparingly. Other ingredients includes sour plum, slices mushrooms, chilli as well as tofu cubes. The presentation of the dish was also lifted up in colors by the greens.
Grouper - RM 70 Last but not least, we had the crustaceans. Rate is going at RM 7 per 100g
. Likewise, the style that you want it to be done varies and we had the most mainstream way of serving which frying in chilli. Gravy was not too spicy and good to pair with the golden fried buns.
Let's work on our fingers and remember to borrow their heavy crab cracking tool if you need.
Crab - RM 56 We got the seating in the middle of the place and it was quite disturbing to us as there were a lot of movements on the planks resulting in vibrating during dining. If you have a choice, try to find a seat that is not that centralized. As for parking wise, there is no need to worry. Parking space is ample and there are even carpark ushers who will aid you in parking your car.
