Steam fish Smile Nov 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant

[DISCLAIMER: This restaurant has changed its name & management. However still serves the same food.]

It's pretty obvious now that steam fish is one of my favourite chinese dish to order at a meal. However not many places can serve up good ones because not only does the fish has to be super fresh but the sauces that it's steamed in has to be good. And the one served at Fei Yee never disappoints. 

 
Their signature Steamed Fish with Ginger, Scallions and Garlic is AMAZING. The sauce has so much flavour and maybe even a hint of chinese wine makes this dish worth ordering in itself. Sometimes I think I have more of the sauce than I do the actual meat. It's even better when you request for extra fried shallots and garlic to add into the sauce. 

 
Their signatore wine & ginger steamed Lala is also really good. There is only one other place that can rival the one served here and that is only cause I grew up eating the one from somewhere else. But here, they do this dish justice because there's a really good punch of flavours in the sauce - it's almost the same as the fish except sweeter from the amount of wine. 

 
Then there's the steamed mince pork with salted fish. This brought back so many memories because my grandma made something similar for me as a kid and I loved it. Just having a nice plate of hot rice and this plus the sauce ladled over it brought back many nostalgic feelings.

As a treat, mom decided to bring me and a friend to dinner at one of our favourite restaurant. Although it was a little far from where we stayed, the food at South Sea was definitely worth the drive up there. 

Since there was only the three of us and neither had super large appetite, we were only able to order a few dishes. However in a rather large portion since we decided to splurge slightly. 

 
For appetisers, we decided to get a plate of these cockles. What we usually see being grilled on the street and these are absolutely different because these were HUGE in size. There was one or two that was equivalent to the size of my palm and being someone that really likes eating cockles, having two of these giant ones were super satisfying.

 
We also got cheese baked Japanese Snails. Imagine escargot but without too much garlic & butter, also with some more crunchy meat. This I liked a lot especially when it just arrived at the table because the cheese is still nice and melty, the snail perfectly succulent plus warm. I think I eaten the most of this because mom & friend were not exactly excited about the amount of cheese that coated the snail. 

 
Stir-Fried Lala with Ginger and Spring Onions was also on the menu. Although I prefer the wine option, this was also pretty good because the scallions and ginger provided a very good kick. This was a favourite between the two adults because of the flavour, plus the clams were nicely sized so it was super plump and juicy. 

 
Just to make up for the lack of green in our diet, we also ordered the Paku Stir Fried in Belacan. This was only mediocre and personally, I think we can get better ones at a regular thai restaurant. 

All in all, the service at South Sea never fails as servers are kind and attentive without any sort of sour face. Plus the decor at the restaurant was also very nice and I liked that there was a seperate area where one can go to choose & examine what kind of seafood they would like to order. Also there is a wine room for those who enjoy a sip or two of wine while they enjoy their dinner. 

Although the price were a little on the steep side, it is a good place to visit if you're in the mood for something slightly more fancy. Plus the great food quality and taste do make up for the price.

Seafood Smile Oct 22, 2015

Pantai Seafood had been a favourite place to visit for some really good seafood. However it is not often we visit unless there is a special occassion, however when we are there the food usually lives up to the rather steep price tag that it comes with.

 
First we got a plate of stir-fried asparagus in belacan sauce to start. It wasn't amazingly good, but it was not terrible either. Each stalk of asparagus was nice and crunchy without being over-cooked, however the belacan sauce was incredibly weak. 

Since we were there for crabs, this was easily overlooked the moment our main course arrived.

 
Black Pepper Crab was the first choice we got. The crabs were quite large, evident by their shell and also the pincer. Not only was it big in size but the meat was incredibly fresh and succulent, especially when you eat at the body section rather than the pincers. Plus the black pepper sauce had an amazing kick to it without being one dimensional.

This dish was amazing! 

 
Just as I thought the first crab dish was good, this arrives and instantly I ignored the black pepper one. The smell of salted egg yolk was strogn and almost each piece of crab was nicely coated in it generously. Just like the previous dish, the crabs were large in size and also incredibly fresh.

Although the price we're paying is a ltitle high, but for the quality of seafood that we get and the taste I guess it's somewhat worth it. However it will not be an everyday occurence that is for sure.

Abalone Smile Oct 15, 2015

For some bizarre reason, the mother was in an exceptionally good mood and decided to take me to have a rather extravagant lunch. Ah Yat Abalone Restaurant had been long standing and also welll raved by many people for their abalone dishes as well as their assorted dim sum. 

To my surprise, there were quite a number of tables already filled when we arrived early on Saturday. I guess many families choose today to enjoy a good meal together and despite the many people (even children) the place was not crazily packed or noisy which I preferred. 
Since we ordered the set meal fit for 2-3 people, it already has the standard menu which the chefs have put together for us. Easier for the diners since we do not know what to order and would rather not waste the waiter's time asking several questions over and over again.

 
The first dish is the deep fried seafood wrap. This I quite liked because it was fried to perfection and not at all oily even though it is deep fried. Plus the filling tasted amazing! 

 
The set also came with stewed Abalone with Japanese Mushroom and Vegetable. When I saw the huge piece of abalone, my heart almost died because I honestly could not comprehend how much this dish would have costed on it's own. Although it was scarce if you just ordered this without anything else, I think it is just right shared between two people when you have a set meal.

The seafood was nicely stewed, tender but also had a nice bite to it. I could not get enough of the sauce and would have happily mopped it all up if we were not in a rather high-class restaurant. 

 
Our set meal also comes with a plate of abalone fried rice. I was already quite full by the time this arrived and slightly put off by the yellow colour. Though, the scent of it was so tempting that I couldn't not eat it so I took a bite and... IT WAS SOOOO GOOD!

There was a very strong flavour of the seafood and also a good 'wok-hei' scent. I couldn't stop eating until I was really filled to the brim.

Although my mom & I really enjoyed our meal at Ah Yat Abalone Restaurant, we definitely would not be back here anytime soon as the prices are a little too high for an everyday meal. Though for special occasions, it's worth dining here.

Buffet lunch Smile Oct 08, 2015

For my birthday, a friend decided to treat me to a nice buffet lunch because we'd get to eat all that we want for the same price. We decided on Zipangu because it has gotten raved reviews for it's quality and Japanese food which is something we really enjoy. 

So it wasn't really a surprise that the place was quite filled with people considering that we went on the weekend. There were several families and also many other tables occupied but we got a nice quiet corner by the window. I gotta say that the staff are very friendly and accomodating because they led us to the quiet corner which I had requested for. They were also very attentive whenever we requested for some green tea or anything else. Service is a definite plus. 

 
As for the choices of food however, there is the selection of salads and then there were also the standard Japanese fare such as assorted sushi that were continuously made to fill up any empty platters.

 

 
There was also a large corner for the seafood where it is pretty much available at most buffets. The seafood looked fresh and the two chefs behind the bar were working constantly to slice up the sashimi to make sure that the serving platters were always filled. Everything was very good that I had several helpings of them all. 

All of the oysters were rather large in size, so were the prawns which I ate many rounds of.

 
The dessert corner was my friend's favourite because there were many kinds - assorted cakes and pastries gallore. Since I prefer the savoury food, I did not really indulge in any dessert. However, apparently they were all only so-so according to my sweet expert friend. 

Although I really enjoyed the buffet spread, this isn't a place that we'd return to if it were not for a sepcial occasion because of the rather steep price tag. Though I guess it is kind of worth it if you're a big eater and indulge in most of the seafood.
