The Boss decided she would show those willing and able a slice of neighbourhood seafood that was turning into a regular spot for her family.
Seri Petaling Seafood Village is located at an unassuming spot, on the road running somewhat parallel to the back of Carrefour. The place was brightly lit, open air and already nicely filled with diners - we switched our hungry blinkers on and listened, bright-eyed and bushy tailed while munching on peanuts and sweet potato chips and Boss helmed the ordering for feast.
Alas, Devastation befell us! The lady informed us that they had run out of crabs! What kind of seafood restaurant runs out of crabs at 8.30PM? A busy, popular one, evidently! We had to make do, and made do we did.
Green Dragon - as green as our colour, watching a neighbouring table suck down the claws of the last crab of the night. Oh we'll get you one day, just you wait!
Fresh, sumptuous, utterly finger-licking Assam Prawns - we downed two plates of these babies!
The Salt & Pepper Squid disappeared as fast as it came - crunch crunch, gulp, gone!
The Assam Fish is probably the best way to prepare the tilapia (fei chow yu or African fish) here. The second preparation of similar fish which came later revealed that maligned swampy freshwater taste.
Mud - lovely on skin, not so in my fish
And came our favourite part the meal - the Salted Egg sigh, everybody together, now! The prawns gleamed in golden grandeur and the squid shone supreme.
TV snack on its own, totally!
Not a fan of venison so gave the Stir-fried Venison with Ginger a miss. Probably a shade paler than the seafood stars here but the others had no problem wiping this clean whatsoever.
The meal fed seven of us too well, and bill total came to about RM350. A right steal, we felt!
And for those slippery lil' crustaceans, we must be back. To the crabs!
