Recently, one of my ex-college buddy, Poh just came back from Europe tour and we had a small gathering last Friday at Pantai Seafood Restaurant, Kg. Sungai Kayu Ara. It was my first time to Pantai Seafood Restaurant and da moment I stepped in, my expression was rather O_o and O_o and O_o! Wanna know why? First, da place was so packed with cars! We didn't manage to find a car park that we got to make a few rounds and my ex-college buddies who came late got to park outside da road side of da Restaurant! Right after we found a parking, we walked in and I saw this.....
Alaska Crab!!!!!!! Boy oh boy, I was so tempted to try it out and fyi, until today I am still having a hard time forgetting this Alaska Crab! Darling had told me to stop dreaming bout it cause there's no way that both of us can finish da whole Crab and that he really wonder who would actually join me to eat this supa dupa expensive Crab :( Anyone? Please let me know..... :p
Boy oh boy, look at this Alaska Crab..... so huge!!!!!!!!! I can only dream..... Wanna know how much is this Crab? It's RM 230++ per kg!!!!!! and for this giant crab, anytime that it could reach up to 2kgs or maybe heavier than that O_o
Found something very interesting, Live Mexico Geoduck Clams!!!!!! O_o Real huge! Goodness, I really wish that I can try it one fine day! Definitely not cheap, RM 152 per kg!
I wonder what type of Fish is this. Looks like Stingray and it's supa expensive too! O_o RM 268 per kg!!!! I really wonder what they taste like.....
Back to our Dinner,
We had da "Kai-Lan" fried with "Kai-Lan"! Half of it were deep-fried shredded "Kai-Lan" leaves while da rest were da "Kai-Lan" stalks which then fried together! Honestly speaking, I'd never tasted anything like that before and it was my first time. Find it pretty special, crunchy and yummy!
We also had da Pig Trotters. I was pretty amazed though cause according to one of my ex-college buddy, this's somehow a signature dish at this Restaurant. I saw many other diners at different tables ordered da same thing too and once tasted, ooooooooo not bad at all. Quite good, not much of fats and very crispy!
We also had da Baked Japanese Snails with Cheese. I found da Snails rather small and not too fresh too. Taste wise, pretty okay and cheesy.
Next, we had da 1/2 Salted Chicken. Not bad, not bad! Da Chicken meat was steamed to perfection and da gravy, not too salty! Definitely suit my taste buds ;)
As for Crabs, we ordered 2kgs of Crabs which was cooked in 2 different varities. This's 1kg of Salted Egg Crab. I would say that there's nothing much to shout over da Crabs here. Generally, da Crabs were quite small in size, not so meaty and taste wise, not too good. I could only taste da Salted Eggs outside da shell of da crabs and not from da meat itself.
Another 1kg of Claypot Butter Crab. Seriously, it didn't taste like what it's named as. Da gravy was kinda diluted and O_o it was spicy!!!!! Hmmm.... I really wonder why! Anyhow, I still think that da Crabs at La-la Chong Seafood Restaurant tastes so much better and much bigger!
Our meal was then ended with a bottle of Ice Wine which was brought over by Poh all da way from Vienna. Wow, this dessert wine was awesome! Sweet and thick, loved it!
Moi ex-college buddies: Prasad, Poh, Ivy and Moi :) Poor thing, so many of them unable to turn up or else it would be one fun night for all of us!
Overall, da dinner was fine. So sorry that I didn't manage to take down da price of each dishes but da above food cost us RM 200 for 6 persons. Hmmm..... I think I should bring my parents to this place one fine day and let them judge if da food over here is good cause I personally think that da seafood at La-la Chong Seafood Restaurant definitely tastes much better ;)
