Lan je steam fish is already famous among the fish lovers and thanks to livingsocial that I finally get to try this at a cheaper rate.

 
A not to be missed Thai coconut.

 

 
We've ordered 2 fishes (talapia fish that ranges from Rm15-18 each), one with normal level of spiciness, another extra spicy so we get to try different sauces.
I prefer the normal one as I can still taste the fish instead of spiciness alone. Though of Talapa type, this fish didn't have muddy taste.

 
Minced meat tofu that exceeded our expectation of those chilled cubic white tofu with minced meat. Very nice indeed.

 
Simple and nice fried vege with garlic.

 
Great execution of prawn omelette.

Another affordable alternative for those who seek to have home-cooked food.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  steamed talapia fish

At Tanjung Sepat, seafood is a must!

This popular Ocen Seafood Restaurant located just right next to Lover's Bridge.

We didn't know what to order at first, so we peek into other's table and found these few dishes are in high demand.

 
Sizzling Oyster Omelette

 

 
"Seafood Taufu Claypot" : Crabmeat, Taufu and Mushroom
A must try! Love this!

 
"Fried Crispy Sotong"
Good one.

 
"Salted Egg Crab"
Fresh seafood.

 
"Steam Pomfret"
The best pomfret I've ever had!
It was so fresh and well cooked!

 
"Clam in Chinese Wine"
Very spicy with chili padi.

Cockles @Jalan Bunga Raya Smile Oct 04, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung | Seafood

Long heard and seen TV programmes on the fresh and cheap seafood served at the back alley/lane but have no idea on its exact location. The seafood, better known as the cockle stall, is located at the back alley off Jalan Bunga Raya, just somewhere around Madam’s King Departmental Store.

 
Instead of using Madam King’s, I would prefer Kong Wah Optometrist (marked as blue pin in the map) as landmark. If you notice in my photo, the cockle stall (marked as red pin in the map) is just next to it on the right side. In other word, the back alley is between Madam King’s and Kong Wah Optometrist.

 
Don’t worry; it’s not that dark inside if you’ve managed to find the right place.

To be honest, this is not the place of hygiene: sitting on tiny wooden stools between drains with possibility of falling down (we’ve seen Caucasian fell right from the stool), cramp seating to the extent of elbow gesture with the neighboring person, motorcycles passing by releasing exhaust gas with only inches away from bumping, and don’t expect the tar road to be clean.

 
Cockles, RM2.00
Cockle, better known as “螄蚶” (pronounced as “si ham” in Cantonese).
It would also be referred as blood cockle or Anadara granosa, where it is cultured extensively from South Korea to Malaysia.
I usually do not fond of cockle due to its bloody appearance and fishy taste. But trust me when I say I have finally understood the Chinese saying “腥与鲜,一线之间”, which means there lies only a fine line between fishy and freshness.
Of all the cockles I’ve had before, these beg to differ with its freshness which words alone are unable to describe.

 
Dip that with the special sauce made by mixing of few sauces (consisting flavours of sweet and spicy), topping of crushed peanut and lime juice!
The sauce goes so well with cockles, you’ll certainly go addictive!

 
Clam/Kepah, RM2.00
Another plate of freshness.

 
Cuttlefish with Kangkung鱿鱼蕹菜 RM7
Best cuttlefish with Kangkung I’ve had in my life! Soft yet chewy.

 
Baked Beancurd Skin烤豆干 RM7
A mixture of baked beancurd skin with fish paste, baked tofu, and others paired with another mixture of sauce.
Another “Hallelujah”! How can food be so tasty here?

 
Considerate enough in preparing lime water to wash away the fishy smell of cockle.

I usually do not put food rating, but this would reach 10/10!
If you are able to put the hygiene issue behind, I guarantee the food will be very much worth it.
Or perhaps in another perspective, eat it the authentic way, as this is how the local eats, 30 years ago, in the exact same place.

Truly a hidden gem in the back alley off Jalan Bunga Raya.

As always, we queue up for our turn to order food, then pay at the cashier and look up for available seats.
Absolutely self-service.

 
Chicken Breast with Vegetable Pasta
Chicken breast marinated in BBQ spices, served with a creamy vegetable pasta.
Looks delicious, right? only cost RM12.50.
Well, the fact is, I do not favour the BBQ spices.

 
Poached Salmon
Poached salmon with broccoli and potato.
A very healthy yet tasty meal.Only for RM12.50.

 
Swedish Meatballs with Fries (5 pcs-kids meal)
Swedish beef meatballs come with fries and served with gravy and lingonberry jam.
Choose between 5 pcs(kids meal), 10 pcs, 15 pcs and 20 pcs.
I usually do not fond of beef, but this is a must try and their signature dish!

Other than food, their softdrink is refillable for RM1.50.
Coffee is also refillable at RM2.
Even Spritzer mineral water cost only RM1 each!

Another visit to Shin Kee but this time without the yellow noodle but kuey teow as they're already sold out. Be there early as I've seen some cases where only mee hoon is left. They do serve innards but i'm no fan of spare parts so I opted for beef balls instead. their beef balls are very bouncy and chewy. their beef sliced meat is another recommendation too, being cooked just nice.
