WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Chinese -

Aside from its im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice, this restau­rant is pop­u­lar with the lo­cals for its abalone and wide-rang­ing fresh seafood cooked to order in an as­sort­ment of flavour­some and de­li­cious ways.

You can’t go wrong with fish, a Chi­nese seafood restau­rant sta­ple. Here, it can be cooked in a whop­ping 12 dif­fer­ent styles, but do try it steamed in the sig­na­ture Ny­onya style. The fish is split in half, then laid on a hot­bed awash with Ny­onya gravy – a well-bal­anced blend of tangi­ness, sour­ness, sweet­ness and heat that goes de­light­fully well with the meat.

Like­wise, din­ers can choose what­ever cook­ing style to their lik­ing for all other marine crea­tures on of­fer. Prawns are great Nes­tum-style – deshelled and deep-fried with gen­er­ous oat­meal flakes awash over the good-sized prawns.

Save the house spe­cial­ity for last. The braised abalone in spe­cial sauce is fresh as the sea, its tex­ture just nicely so, ev­ery bite giv­ing a good mouth­feel with­out be­ing overly chewy.

A re­fresh­ing end to the feast, the double-boiled lon­gan sea co­conut is sweet yet cool­ing with its slices of sea co­conut and heaps of lon­gan.
