PJ: Good Fish & Chips @ Fish & Co.
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Klang Valley, Places to Eat, Selangor | icon4 04 24th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on PJ: Good Fish & Chips @ Fish & Co.

I think the last time I had fish and chips last like last year July when I was at Fremantle having Cicerello’s – WA’s No. 1 Fish ‘n Chips!

I didn’t had much of thought about Fish & Co. because the appearance of the place really did not attract me at all but Miharu was in the mood for some fish and chips and so we ended up here.

We ordered the fried calamari as starters, that set us back by RM10.90 but it was really good. Calamari are thinly siliced and deep fried with coating of batter and herbs. The calamari goes great with the chili sauce provided.

Next up are some traditional fish and chips for me, RM9.90. Its a decent piece of deep fried fish, crispy from the outside but flaky soft from the inside. Its a little oily to me but the fries that goes with it are good. I asked for some vinegar to go with it but unfortunately the vinegar served here are really those you get at Cicerello’s, its just too strong.

Miharu had the New York fish and chips which is stuffed with cheese and its a little cheesy but better fragrant and rich at RM10.90.

Overall, the food here is good, service not too bad but would just been great if they had good and light vinegar for the fish ;).

We are being told by Julian to specifically order 4 of their best dishes here and we pandai-pandai asked for 1 recommendation and guess what… all of them turned out to be very nice!

This place is located at the traffic light junction just after the police station opposite the famous goreng pisang place that I really missed, too bad no time to eat that this round, got to work one you know.

We ordered the famous crabs fried mee, “tekat” (something like that, kind of calms la) mee suah, guiness stout chicken, bittergound eggs and lai pak vege fried with scallops.

The crabs fried mee is basically mud crabs fried with thin yellow noodles (reminds of the crabs fried mee at Teluk Gong). The sauce with mee is good but you really have to eat this fast but with crabs, you just have to take your time.

The calms fried with mee suah is really good and I actually like this more. The mee suah and calms are covered with a starchy sauce and its superbly appetizing and the moment you took the first bite, you want to refill more on your plate. That’s how good it is.

Next up is their guinness stout chicken, now the usual way of cooking this is after marinating the chicken, you deep fried it then stir fry in a thin sticky sauce. But their stout chicken here is soft, no trace of deep frying and the flavour is very well maintain, portion is small but its again very delicious!

The bittergound eggs is really special. The eggs are almost like half boiled, added with soy sauce covering the bittergound. Just because of this dish, we ordered rice because its just too nice to take with rice. I think I can just eat this with rice and be very satisfied, yes, that’s how good it is!

The lai pak vegetable stir fried with scallops is recommended by the guy whom took our order since we already ordered their 4 best dishes. I thought this would just be an ordinary stir fried vegetable dish but turns out, the taste is good and the scallops are fresh too.

For the 3 of us, we paid RM77.00 for all the above. RM41 for the crabs fried mee (about 1kg of crabs I guess), RM 10 for the calms mee suah and scallops vege. RM8 for the eggs and chicken.

Overall, its all thumbs up here and we walked away with full and happy bellies. I hope they will keep up the quality and maintain the good pricing, I will surely be back on my trip to Penang, already missing the mee suah and bittergound eggs… slurp!

Sabah – Hua Hing Seafood @ Seri Selera Kg Air, Kota Kinabalu
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Places to Eat, Sabah, Sabah | icon4 01 15th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on Sabah – Hua Hing Seafood @ Seri Selera Kg Air, Kota Kinabalu

Mentioned Kota Kinabalu and it is usually associated with seafood… Seri Selera Kg. Air or known as Sedco Square in KK is known as a seafood village in town. Just before boarding the flight home, we made our way to here for some local seafood.

We went and check all the prices before deciding and seems that all are the same. If you sit in the open area, there’s a 10% service charge but if you sit indoor in the seafood restaurant there is none.

We picked Hua Hing Seafood and here you can choose all the live seafood available according to your budget. The only I think I find really cheap here are their crabs going at only RM13.80 per kg! So we ordered 2 types of crabs, salted egg and black pepper. The outcome is a bit different from what I expected, both the salted eggs and black pepper crabs are wet and not dry as I expected. Taste wise is ok la but we are more for the cheap crabs.

The other stuff pricing are ok la… on the average… I ordered some giant clams to be steamed with garlics, squid fried with pepper, some paku-pakis vegetables. Besides that, there are also smaller stalls offering grill chicken wings and oo-chen. Pricing is not cheap but average KK price.
