Hubby's favourite Kepah aka Clams!Just look at the fiery fella on the middle left? He was all ready to give me a snap when I went near to take this photo. More shellfish: Mussels and Oysters Ugly looking fish with human face. SCARY!
Hungry hungry and food was served when we went back to our table. First dish was the Stirfry Venison with Sea Cucumber. The venison meat was tender while the accompanying veggies were still crunchy. Sadly, it requires a bit of luck in finding the thinly sliced sea cucumber.
A plate of Boiled Fresh Prawns...how can one go wrong with this dish? Tasted wonderful. Sweet, juicy and bounchy! You can give me a plate of this prawns ANYTIME, slurps!!
We also managed to try the famous mollusc found in Sabah water known as Siput Gajah (elephant snail?). It was deshelled and stir-fry in Kung Po style. Again, it need a bit of hunting here cos the plate was full of onions and dried chillies. Barely could find the sliced shellfish. However, I love the Kung Po taste very much and I just love eating the sweet crunchy onions coated with the gravy.
We specially requested to have the Sabah Veggie which we enjoyed very much the night before. This time, we had it stir-fry with scrambled egg. Very unique indeed, am not sure if the local prefers this version. Tastewise, not too bad but we still prefered the sambal belachan version.
Lastly, a plate of Kam Hiong Crab which didn't get my approval. It's such a waste to have such big, meaty and fresh mudcrabs overcooked. *Shake shake head*
The meal came up to RM300+ for the 5 of us. Not cheap rite? But I guess if you don't have a car and happen to stay in the city centre and yearn for seafood, you may consider this restaurant.
