Not long ago, my colleagues and I went for a farewell dinner for a colleague that will has left our company. After much discussion, we decided to go to Pantai Seafood Restaurant, Kg. Sungai Kayu Ara. It's really not difficult to find this place. Just go along Sprint away towards Damansara Jaya, don't turn left into Damansara Jaya after you took the exit to DJ from Sprint. Go straight and then turn left at the first junction into a smaller road. Go straight all the way and you see Pantai Seafood Restaurant on your right after a short drive.
The first thing that attracted me is the aquariums that is filled with many variety of seafood.
Most of the seafood in the aquariums are not cheap. They have very huge mantis prawn that is selling for RM 130/KG @_@
Australian Lobster RM 298/KG
Exotic Australian Snow Crab, prepare to pay RM 228/KG for it.
Then there's also Canada Geoduck that people always make fun of because of the shape. RM 238/KG.
We of course didn't order any of those exorbitant priced seafood, we didn't come here because one of us won the 4D lol.
I like to take photo of my colleague's daughter, she's always have some funny face expression.
First dish that is served is Sheung Tong Yuen Choi, there's garlic cloves and slightly fried century eggs in the soup too. Just a normal dish nothing that is too out of this world.
Stir-fried snails with garlic and dried shrimps. The way the do it is like stir-fried pork intestine. The snails is quite springy. Not too bad.
Special fried tofu is fried until crispy in the outside and still soft inside. Dip a bit of the special sauce give it an extra taste.
I forgot what dish is this, I think it's stir-fried mantis prawn with salted egg yolk. Up to standard with the salty egg yolk equally covering the prawn meat.
Lemon chicken. Normal.
Steamed fish in assam. Fish is fresh and the sauce is very appetizing.
In short, Pantai Seafood Restaurant is just like any normal restaurant you find out there except maybe the exotic live seafood in the aquarium. If you just want to eat a normal seafood meal, there're many other cheaper and tastier restaurants. If you have the money to splurge then you can try out the exotic seafood here.
