Crab Factory @ Johor

 

Another exciting crab experience at the Johor food trip not long ago had me questioning how so that I have never once visited their Klang Valley outlet in PJ. Crab Factory brings Johor a unique seafood menu and interactive dining experience at this beautiful enclave much alike mini Paris (or a mini European township). Located not too far from Mount Austin, the second day with the bunch of makan kaki started with huge and fresh seafood as opposed to dainty bite sizes of sashimi from the first day. If you asked me, I think all our cholesterol probably raised by 20% during that 2 days. The amount of seafood (and everything else in between) can easily feed me for a week. Generous sizes and amount aside, it was by far the best seafood I have had in the past 6 months at least, if not the juiciest. How so I haven’t been eating at the PJ outlet? They were so good!

Unsurprisingly, the focus in crab factory is the seafood and the eatery promise nothing but the finest and freshest dishes. With no plating skills required, everything is eaten right from the table. And the sweet crustaceans are absolutely something I will gladly snap on a bib and dive right in at any time. Also feel free to mess the entire table so long as you don’t eat from the wrong pile.

 

Served in a plastic bag and dripping with a house sauce made from garlic butter, and together with vegetables, these meals are presented in packages as such: Crab Lover Shiok (2-3 pax), Crab Lover Party (4-5 pax), and Crab Lover Giler (7-9 pax) priced at RM 49.90 or RM 59.90 per pax. I thought it was a fantastic deal for seafood lover. I would eat this again anytime and work on the calories later.

If fresh crabs, prawns, lobsters, crawfishes, or even mussels with every crevice coated with delicious sauce isn’t a reason to get messy then I don’t know what is. This one is indeed a lovely and ideal place to feast for every occasion and any celebration, so long as it is not a proposal. Don’t believe me?

Sticking to the traditional buffet practices, feel free to browse and hop around from stations to stations. Their highlight is most probably the fresh seafood station. With fresh and delicious sea harvest like the scallops, crabs, prawns, mussels, sashimi or oysters, you can almost smell the scent of ocean at every bite of any of these. I am absolutely impressed with the freshness of these amazing selections.

The Asian kitchen has plenty of authentic dishes we are all familiar with. Signature dishes representing all ethic culture spread elegantly for international travelers, especially when they serve up the most diverse range: from sushi to Indian curries, and satays to chinese pohpiah, as well as just about everything in between. Chinese brunch tapas comprising various dumplings and that double boiled black chicken with ginseng soup cannot be any more tempting than it already is.

UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)

 

I thought we’ve reached peak lobster and burger but when the famous UK chain Burger and Lobster made their way to Malaysia, I was all excited again and what better place to host this restaurant than the all new revamped Genting Highland’s Sky Avenue. With an exciting facelift, the resort is now looking fabulous with this particular space elegantly decked with interior and panel partitions, filled with neon red lights which exude a warm and contemporary ambiance.

3.UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)
4.UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)

 

Get your claws into their single page, nine items food menu and while this eatery represents remarkable swanky dining experience, it was nothing close to anything of a good value for money. The menu was simple; with either beef burger or lobster either steamed or grilled to offer, and all dishes are accompanied by chips and salad. Lobsters are plump and juicy, with inconsistent bounce but the price of RM 168 for your Chili lobster served with their signature brioche and no chips or salad, this one represents Malaysia well to be that exclusive variant available only in Malaysia outlet but I sure hope a fresher lobster in my claypot.

 

5.UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)

 

The rolls are better, this one is The Original (RM 138) with Japanese mayonnaise and because it’s served chilled in their signature brioche roll, it worked for me. The simplicity of the dish while absurd for what is a fairly average meal- cut neatly [ast the usual seafood meal pricing is what bothers me when it comes to recommending it to my readers.

7.UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)

 

If you’d like to make an evening of it, do the meal with cocktails and booze. Burgers looked fine with that substantial salad and chips. But then again, based on the lobster experience, food solely is the last thing that would offer satisfying experience in whole.

 

8.UK’s Burger and Lobster in Malaysia (Sky Avenue Genting Highland)

 

So what you are actually paying for is the dining experience of seafood at high altitudeof 6000ft in the hills with lobsters transported from Canada, an identical theme of Burgers and Lobsters in London and that Chili Lobster dish only available at the Resorts World Genting. Tourists would love everything about it, especially now that the Ringgit is weaker in value but for the locals to travel solely for this, I’d say you put on your lobster bib somewhere else.

Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant @ Teluk Gong, Klang

 

Famous with their toddy and seafood, Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant at Klang is running in a very simple trend like most Chinese restaurant. Tables and chairs are all arranged in open air tent and the pavements were not smooth. The roofs are supported with huge timber as pillars in this restaurant. Most people come to this place for the seafood but common Chinese meals are also served here. Common dishes like the fried tofu with gravy, fried spinach, or the fried oyster with omelett are served with plain white fragrant rice.

If you simply just want to enjoy seafood, try the bamboo shell fried with dried chili and soya sauce. Each was very plump and fresh. They were so sweet and succulent you’ll never stop popping them into your mouth. Especially when eating with chilled beer, or toddy.

 

@coconut flower (3)

 

And the replacement for rice can be the popular Fried vermicelli with lala. Although a tact salty to enjoy with other dishes, this one is a good dish to order at communal dining.

 

@coconut flower (4)

 

Note: Please forgive the very poor quality photos taken with mobile camera and the missing crab (gone before I manage to snap a photo).

 

Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant is absolutely stunning when it comes to ambiance if dinning on a good day without the rain; ventilation is nicely allocated with lots of fans all over the place. Parking bay should not be a problem if not breezy but know that the narrow and winding road is not a good place to park your car.

Brolly @ Menara Felda

 

Brolly at Menara Felda in the heart of Kuala Lumpur is an attractively spruced-up pub, with attentive staff and sensible pricing depending on what you ordered. The focus is on making both diners and drinkers unwind and relax themselves. Themed with mechanic tools, the bolts and wrenches, pipes and pliers and rims are all available all over– not just at the smartly dressed and lit dining space but the bar too.

The handsome bar counter is lined with beers, but also offers cocktails and a global wine and whisky lists. Be impressed with their range of mocktails, and the funky presentation that is set to feed up your social media feeds in no time. Passion and Peach Mocktails (RM 15), Classic Beergarita (RM 28), Pineapple High-Ballrus (RM 26), Wild berry High – Ballrus(RM 26), Apple Mojito (RM 15), Maracuja and Pineapple Mocktails (RM 15), Passion Beergarita (RM 30), all serves not only pretty colours, but boozing the meal with lots of happiness and clink of glasses as we dig into the food.

 

5.Brolly @ menara Felda

 

Cooking is assured, and quite good enough to justify the prices: Two Medium sized crab of your choice of flavours is selling for RM 148 per bag. All is packed with sweet meat and bright orange lumps crab roe peeking out from the plastic bags.

 

6.Brolly Felda

 

Don’t miss the Brown Crabs (RM 209) which are packed with sweet meat. They’re a mess to eat, and you need to really work at them with crackers but fret not because the taps and basins are pretty cool. This enormous crustacean comes with fantastic steam and aroma escaping from the bags when it’s brought to our tables. That’s right, seafoods here are served Lousiana style. So hands on straight from the bags to the table with no cutleries and most importantly, no hand phones (People spend way too much time on the phone at the dining table).

 

7.Brolly Felda

 

500g of Mussel (RM 45) was delicious and easier to unshell for sure, and we dipped everything in excess at the bottom of the plastic bag, where all the sweet juices are.

 

8. Brolly @ Menara Felda

 

Certainly not a destination for fine dining for sure, it’s still a brilliant place those who absolutely love slurping ultra-fresh oysters. Brolly is apparently those who keep their oysters fresh and living inside their tank. Their Kelly’s Gigas Oysters (RM98 per dozen) crowned champion tonight on my most favourite list.

 

9.Brolly Menara Felda KL
10. Brolly Menara Felda

 

Bar snacks and pub grubs are cut-above: Fried Chicken Cincalok (RM 18) although interesting is not of my preference. Garlic Escargot (RM 24 ), Chicken Strips (RM 18), and Onion Flower (RM 18) is quite the perfect bites to go with booze but better value is to be found on their ala carte menu, where you get communal dishes like salads and pizzas.

 

11.Brolly Felda KL

From Grilled Ceasar Salad (RM 15) to the more elaborated Spinach and Feta Melon Salad (RM 22), both makes a good addition to a balanced meal with the later being a real charm with the touch of refreshing sweet from the melon.

 

15.Brolly Felda KL
16.Brolly Felda KL

 

Also, both the Seafood Matriciana (RM 28) and Thai Beef Guava (RM 28) teams up really well with beers. The Thai flavoured pizza is memorable with the hint of lemongrass distinctively balancing those velvet melting cheese.

 

18.Brolly Felda KL
17.Brolly Felda KL

 

There is so much beyond just seafood alone. Beef Sirloin (RM 34) was pleasant with luscious steak and humble side of mashed potatoes and some greens. Make sure you emphasized your preferred level of doneness; I recommend rare to medium rare for this one.

 

19.Brolly Felda KL
20.Brolly Felda KL

 

And while it is totally okay to skip their steak, be sure to save space for their desserts. Showcasing most of their dessert in mason jars, here are the Creme Brulee (RM 16), Rocky Road (RM 16), and that favourite nostalgic flavour of Ribena in their Ribena Poached Pear (RM 16).If you are a breakfast person like me, you’d enjoy the Chunky Peanut Butter Granola (RM 16) although this one is really heavy for dessert and obviously strictly for sharing. In fact, here is a very honest suggestion- all desserts in those jars are way too hefty if you are dining solo.

 

21.Brolly Felda KL
22. Menara Felda Brolly

 

While dining at Brolly, be sure to enjoy every piece of interior both indoor and outdoor and while one can totally mainly feel the influence of the Louisiana seafood, you would be amazed by how delightful the whole eating experience. Neophytes, beware – the place can be tricky to find first time around. Especially with the renovations that’s ongoing within the building at the moment.

Drunk Cat @ Kuchai Lama

 

Great for large groups and all occasions, the drunk cat is one of the restaurant with the perfect location that comes with ample availability of parking bays. Ranging from very simple and heartwarming dishes we are all familiar with, diners get a taste of home with basic dishes like the Tomato Fried Egg (RM 9). Egg lovers wouldn’t mind the Steam Mix Eggs (RM 9) and if not as salty, one cannot feel closer to home with their egg dishes.

Then move on to Fu Yu Pork (RM 15) where the good recipe meets good ingredients and executed by cook with good chinese culinary skills. I had problem with the layer of fats but pork lover should have no issues with it. Salted pork (RM 15) is good to go with white rice and could obviously go easy with the salt.

 

3.drunken cat @kuchai lama
4.drunken cat

 

The Chinese cuisine are made up by the many dialects and each symbolises good luck or joyful mood. Fried Four Season Vegetable (RM 12) stir fried a mix of four vegetables, hence a pleasant variety. Bayam Soup (RM 11) substantially comforts the stomach with the delicious superior soup.

 

5.drunken cat kuchai lama
6. drunken cat

 

Seafood lover should be glad and relief with the good quality of ingredients in their seafood dishes. There is the Lala in Supreme Soup (RM 18) served with candle lid at the bottom to preserve heat to the soup; sweet and superbly delicious, great to be presented at communal eating.

 

7.drunken cat @kuchai lama (2)

 

There is something for everyone and tofu lover would be please with the assortment of tofu variables. Square ones or round ones; anything that appeals would be ideal at communal meal. Pork and Beancurd (RM 10) composition matches the fragrant and sweetness mainly from the pork and the thick gravy. And if desiring some stir fried noodles or rice, the selection was immense. Seafood Fried Rice was pretty luscious with lots of medium sized prawns.

Homely and friendly, the assortment of dishes and varieties of selection are amazing. From the barn and farm, the many ways of cooking are fantastic. And seafood lovers can be rest assured to be very pleased and happy with the sea harvest. From fishes to shells and clams to squids, matching them with a beer or two should be amazing with the perfect company. And like many other ‘tai chau’ restaurant, drinks didn’t stray far from what’s commonly served elsewhere.

Backlane (Longkang) Cockles @ Tong Bee’s Stall (Melaka)

 

Longkang cockles, cockles at the back alley, bunga raya cockles, bunga raya si ham, Melaka longkang siham, Bunga Raya kerang rebus, longkang lala, Tong Bee’s stall and many other names; all referring to the same dodgy stall operating at the back alley along the Jalan Bunga Raya Melaka.

 

1.Mlk lala (28)

 

Notoriously renowned with their gloom and shabby surrounding, with tiny stools made of wood placed at a back lane adjacent to the drainage. Anyone with sensitive tummy should lay off to be safe, but it’s what’s brings this part of the street alive once it gets dark. The eating experience is what’s on the spotlight instead of what’s on the menu.

Diners don’t get too much choices, only shell creatures to start off but has later expanded
to some vegetable, rojak and tauhu bakar. Shell creatures were simply boiled to cook where else most flavours rely heftily on their dipping sauces. Sweet sauce with chili to match accordingly to your liking and each item served with either skewer stick or tiny fork.
