Shee Yan Assam Fish @ Muar

I had a chance to revisit Muar to attend 1 of my friend’s brother wedding dinner. I know, what’s got to do with me when it’s his brother wedding right?

Anyway, I just treat this as a makan trip for me…hehe.

My friend bring us to Shee Yaan Restaurant (喜燕楼), a famous restaurant in Muar that serve good Assam Fish.

First dish that being served is the Deep Fried Dragon Tongue Fish. The fish is very thin hence not much meat on it. We just ate it with soy sauce. Not bad la. 6.0/10

Wanchai Seafood Street @ Zhuhai, China

Zhuhai is located in the Canton province of China, hence many restaurants here are serving Canton Cuisine (粤菜), one of the 4 major subdivisions cuisine in China.

Fresh live seafood is prominent in Canton cuisine, and according to them, fresh live seafood are best cooked with by steaming, with only little used of seasoning to bring out the natural sweetness of live seafood.

While most authentic Cantonese cuisine restaurants have live seafood tanks in their restaurants, Wanchai Seafood Street in Zhuhai bring it up to another level.

There are more than 10 restaurants serving authentic Cantonese cuisine here, and while all the restaurants here does not have live seafood tanks, behind these restaurants are a whole stretch of stalls selling all sorts of live seafood.

Walking past here is just like walking at Petaling Street in Malaysia where you are being shouted to asked you visit their shop, telling you that they are offering the cheapest price or even sell you are a price that they actually making a lost. It’s really a mess as since I visited this place during lunch where there are not much customers, we are the target of every stalls here.

However, it’s also a wonderful experience since many seafood sold here are not sold in almost every wet market in Malaysia. Most of them I don’t even know their name.

Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim @ Alor Setar

A day before I am off to China for a week, I know I will surely miss curry when I am there, hence the urge to have a good place of awesome Nasi Kandar before I depart from Malaysia is a must.

Hence, I travel all the way down to Alor Setar to the best Nasi Kandar I had tried up till today, Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim.

This is truly a 1Malaysia stall, unlike the BS you heard and read in newspaper everyday.

This small coffee shop are run by Chinese in a traditional Chinese Coffee shop setting, while the Nasi Kandar stall are run by Indian Muslims, or better known as Mamak. You can always find all races dining here happily, proved that we Malaysians, although we do have our different believes and culture, we can live together in a harmonious way.

We don’t need all those marketing campaign and 1Malaysia logo all around to tell us what 1Malaysia are, all the time we are already able to do so.

Waterview Restaurant @ Dannok

Waterview restaurant at Danok is one of the most visited restaurant in Danok, because it’s special. How special? You will know soon.

Anyway, the restaurant is located quite outside from the main town. The road lead to there is very small, hence I do advice one to go there when the sun is still out.

Since I am not driving myself in, I go there using the hotel taxi. Which cost me RM30 for a round trip. It’s just a short trip by the way, which takes around 15minutes each journey, but since we are sitting the huge VIP style van, I think the price is pretty ok.
