Seafood @ Welcome Seafood Restaurant

Welcome Seafood Restaurant is one of the local’s favourite seafood restaurant.

Located within city, this seafood restaurant is serves fresh and great tasting seafood. Their main selling point is FRESH seafood. Nothing is slaughtered before order.. me thinks.

However I think the food quality is not consistent; famous restaurant tends to have these phenomenon especially during peak period.

Lunch time and dinner time

Kolo Mee @ Kedai Kopi Kai Shun

Kolo mee, originates from Sarawak. A simple yet delicious plate of noodle topped with different kinds of ingredients, such as mince meat, char siew and pork rolls.

Some times, the most simple ingredients makes up the tastiest food. One plate of kolo mee can fill up your tummy very quickly, but I always get 1.5 portions because my mum always say…

“Ah zai I cannot finish! Here, take mine.”

Braised Fish @ Tung Fong Seafood Restaurant

Tung Fong Seafood Restaurant is rather secluded in a hidden shop lots, only locals know how to navigate there. I get lost twice before I found this restaurant.

They recently renovated their restaurant to accommodate more customers. I came here purposely to do food review after getting many strong recommendations from readers. I asked a few customers there, “what are the crowds’ favourite?”. And all of them gave me different answers. This means all the food offered are very high standard.

Braised Fish is the dish that I strongly recommend in this restaurant. It goes soooo well with rice/noodle. Be careful not to fall into trance while enjoying this dish. It happened to me.

Roast Pork @ Restaurant Lim Kee

I don’t know about you but when I stepped into the restaurant, I was amazed at the amount of roast porks, roasted ducks and chickens at the stall.

Normally stalls only fit in one stall… but this stall need TWO stalls to accommodate the amount. I ordered a small plate to taste what they have to offer. Many friends recommended me this place.. and they are right!

Especially the roasted pork, the outer skin is so crunchy, almost like eating a crackers (insert: addictive)

Hainan Ngiu Chap @ Fei Lou Hainan Ngiu Chap

“Ah moi, gimme one bowl of ngiu chap!” I pointed at the menu. I choose a table, sit down. The restaurant was still empty when I arrived. The stall is packed full of fresh beef, awaiting for incoming customers for the rest of the day.

3 minutes later, my beef noodle arrived. “Ah moi, I order normal size. This bowl of noodle is HUGE!” “This is normal size.” IT’S SO FREAKING HUGEEEEEEEE. The meat is tender and every slice of beef is cooked to perfection. Dip in chili sauce – whoa it’s so delicious. Every part of the beef taste different in terms of flavours and textures.

Laksa Pan Mian @ Kedai Kopi Laksa Dan Makanan

The laksa pan mian served in this restaurant tastes more creamier than other laksa noodle I’ve tasted.

Wait – creamier? That’s right bebeh.. calling this as “laksa” is not technically correct. It’s more like cross-fusion between curry and laksa. Normally, curry laksa taste mild spicy with cream in it. This laksa is opposite – you taste the cream first, then follow by mild spiciness. If you consume the soup non-stop,  you cannot actually taste the spiciness. lol.

Prawn Noodle @ Foh Sang

In Sabah, this is know as prawn noodle. In Penang, this is known as Hokkien Mee. There’s always confusion when my Penang friends came over for visit.

There’s always a debate if this is one of the best prawn noodle in Foh Sang – which rivals the prawn noodle served at Golden Eagle Restaurant. Both serves at same time, at the same crowds too.

Beaufort Fried Noodle @ Yu Hing Restaurant

Beaufort noodle is my first Beaufort dish I’ve ever tried. It’s different from what I normally tasted.. and I love it!

Thinly sliced pork meat, charsiew, lots of vegetables and thick sauce are the usual attributes of Beaufort noodle. They also uses yellow spring noodle instead of yellow noodle (油面). This noodle has brought more variations to local noodle scenes. The typical noodles you can find at Chinese restaurants, such as fried mee, watan hor, Singapore fried noodles etc.

Tom Yam Noodle @ Seng Hing Sinsuran

One of the oldest tom yam restaurant in city area. I gave my “tom yam” virginity to this restaurant when I was 7 years old.. vaguely remember the old times when my mum brought me here and say “tom yam”.. I puzzled the first time I hear this word.

The sour and mild spicy taste keeps customer coming back for more (I am salivating while writing this). You can find big and juicy prawns in the noodle, no other sizes. It’s an indulgence.
