Puchong Food : Ocean Seafood Restaurant 海洋海鲜餐厅 - Delicious and Affordable Seafood

Ocean Seafood Restaurant 海洋海鲜餐厅 in Puchong Selangor has been opened for the more than 2 years. We were invited to taste out some of the new seafood and popular dishes served at this restaurant.

Ocean Seafood Restaurant 海洋海鲜餐厅 Address
21, Jalan Puteri 2/3 , Bandar Puteri,47100 Puchong

Located in the bustling Puchong township with a simple no frill decor, we were quite impressed by the quality and portions of the serving.

For fans of seafood and especially crabs, you can have a selection of more than 9 different cooking style starting from the popular Butter Salted Egg Mud Crab with Roe  咸湿膏蟹 RM95 for the XL Size.

For this order of ours, the crab roe was aplenty while it's meat was flaky with a nice soft tender texture and taste of fresh white crab meat that is paired with the buttery salted eggs. You can also choose the meat crab if you are not a fan of crab roe.

Next on is the Spicy Buttermilk Crab 香辣奶皇肉蟹 RM50 for the Medium Size crab which its gravy superbly; paired to an order of the Fried Mantou 炸馒头 (RM6). Needless to say we had to order a second round of this bun to slurp up to the last drop of the sauce.

Prices for the Crab varies from the different sizes of the crabs that you like. You can check out the board which list out the daily prices before placing an order.

After that we tasted the Mantis Prawn with Dry Chili 宫保虾糕 RM15. This mantis prawn meat are battered and deep fried before being stir fried with dry chillies, onions and spring onions. This dishes is better eaten with a bowl of steaming white rice.

For fans of clams, you can try out the Lala with Superior Soup 上汤啦啦 RM18

The next dish is a real value for money dish which is called the XO Seafood Noodle Pot XO海鲜粉煲 RM19.90 which comes with a full small size crab and loaded with other seafood i.e. brown squid and lala too. You can order this Noodle Pot with a choice of Meehoon or Yee Mee.

Besides serving seafood dishes, Ocean Seafood Restaurant 海洋海鲜餐厅 also offer a variety of other dishes for you to choose from. Starting out, you can order the  Pork Ribs  一支骨 
咸湿膏蟹  RM32. The spare ribs is roasted to a crisp, topped with a special sweet tangy sauce that gel up to the succulent fatty meat of the ribs and perfectly paired with a bowl of steaming white rice also a fried mantou is served on the side to slurp the sauce.

Next, you can order the Kampung Chicken with Rice Wine 黄酒焖鸡 RM32. This dish uses the Yellow Rice wine and the black fungus as its secondary ingredient. The choice to use the Kampung Chicken was perfect as the meat texture for this variety of chicken is firmer and the taste is more intense.  I would have love this dish even more if the rice wine were a little bit more stronger.

Our last meat dish is more of an appetizer which is Swiss Chicken Wings 瑞士鸡翅 RM15. Deep fried to a nice crunchy crisp and cooked with an in-house sweet sauce; it resembles the taste of Korean Fried Chicken, this can be your order to start off your meal or as a starter with a glass of cold beer.

For the non-meat and non-seafood dishes you can start by ordering the Toufu with Pumpkin Sauce 金瓜豆腐 RM15. The bean-curd is homemade and bedded with the in-house made smooth pumpkin sauce that is cooked with Shimeji Mushroom and crab meat.

or the combination of the Mixed Hong Kong Kai Lan  鸳鸯芥蓝  RM15. The kale leaf are shredded and fried while the trunk of the Kale is pan fried.

Lastly you can also taste the Lotus Fried with Winged Bean 莲藕四棱豆 RM12. One of the thing about the lotus root and the winged beans(four angle beans); it has a nice crunchy feel when you bite into it.

Italian Restaurant Kuala Lumpur Via Pre KUL Bukit Damansara Affordable Authentic Italian Cuisine

Fans of Italian Cuisine, you can take note, that there is a new Italian Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur Via Pre KUL located in the quiet neighbourhood of Bukit Damansara.

Via Pre KUL Address
25, Lorong Setiabistari 2
Bukit Damansara
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Via Pre which stands for Jalan Pre in Italian is the name of a road in Genova Italy. Their Penang Restaurant Via Pre Penang has been operating for more than 3 years now.

The owner has decided to start the KL branch to serves affordable and authentic Italian cuisines to folks in Kuala Lumpur. By the way, Via Pre KUL is a pork free restaurant.

Its root can be traced to the co-founder of the popular Italian Restaurant which is Neroteca. All the menus are scrutinized by him to ensure that you will be able to enjoy an authentic Italian taste.

To ensure the authenticity of the dishes, almost all the ingredients used in the restaurant are imported especially from Italy, up to the flour that is used to bake the bread while the pizza flour which hails from Napoli are fully imported and freshly made on a daily basis.

Our review started with a starter which is Bresaola (RM29.00). The Air dry beef loin which has a slight salty taste is used to wrapped the fresh mozzarella cheese and then served with button mushroom pikes, with a light touch of Evo oil and fine balsamic dressing making the right blend of texture and taste to this appetizer.

Nyonya Food Melaka The Tranquerah Damansara GLO Kuala Lumpur

The Tranquerah located at Damansara GLO Kuala Lumpur is imbued with an old world atmosphere, which makes for an enchanting and authentic Nyonya Food Melaka dining experience. The focus in The Tranquerah which was awarded by Malaysia Tatler Dining - Best Top 5 Nyonya Restaurant in KL & PJ 2015 and it is renowned as one of the restaurants to go for its Nyonya delicacies.

The Tranquerah Damansara GLO Kuala Lumpur Address
LG09, Lower Ground Floor, GLO Damansara, 
No 699, Jalan Damansara
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

There is a huge difference between the different Peranakan Dishes that are available, you can check out the details on Wikipedia but the 2 most popular are the Nyonya Melaka and Nyonya Penang that are often mistaken as the same by many. The Nyonya Penang has a sourish tone like the popular Assam Laksa, while the Nyonya Melaka has a richer flavour like the Buah Keluak dishes and the Ayam Pongteh.

The menu at The Tranquerah is specially curated by the Nyonya celebrity chef, Florence Tan, which serves authentic Malacca Nyonya Cuisine. A few of their signature dishes are Ayam Buah Keluak, Ayam Pongteh, Gerang Asam Fish, Udang Masak Lemak Nenas, Tamarind Prawns, ltik Tim soup and Pai Tee.

One of the most popular delicacies in the Nyonya Melaka dishes is the Buah Keluak. Little is known about this ingredient as one of the delicious ingredients. We were told that this Buah Keluak (Pangium Edule) is poisonous and needed to be treated in the right way to enjoy this delicious offering.

Buah Keluak is a rather mysterious fruit. The whole plant is poisonous, and yet the seeds are painstakingly prepared and eaten as a Nyonya delicacy. The fresh fruit and seeds contain hydrogen cyanide and are deadly poisonous if consumed without prior preparation. The seeds are first boiled and then buried in ash, banana leaves and earth for forty days. The method relies on the fact that the hydrogen cyanide released by the boiling and fermentation is water-soluble and easily washed out. Check this out on Wikipedia.

So naturally our first dish that we reviewed is the Keluak Pasta (soon to be introduced in the standard menu). From the look of it, our first thought was a black pepper pasta, but once it reaches our mouth, you can taste the Buah Keluak which has a slightly bitter nutty taste that’s almost reminiscent of a good single origin dark chocolate with an added spiciness from the use of some black pepper to prep it out a little. A great taste to start our review.
