Restoran Unique Seafood, Setapak

This totally slipped my mind. This was way back In July'07 when the restaurant just opened for 1 month (I think). Thought I’ve posted this but noooo..A casual dinner at Mei Keng Fatt Seafood Restaurant inadvertently directed us here. We got wind that the restaurant’s seafood supplier has opened its own restaurant nearby charging lower prices. No name was mentioned but had an idea where it is located. Following weekend, we went to look and ended up having a grand dinner there. Ho-ho-ho do the dance do the dance! (yes I realise this is getting old).

Money Pouch. Glamour name for bits of scallops and other seafood wrapped with beancurd skins in superior gravy. Call me uncultured but I prefer ‘sui-kows’ (prawn dumplings) since I felt the taste was downright bland. *duck to avoid hand swipes from dinner companions who shared good money for this dish*
Steamed Soon Hock (Grouper). Sweet succulent meat.Been advised that this is the kind of fish that size does matter. Choose one that weighs at least 1 kg to get solid meat.
Kailan Greens Stir-fried with 'Har-khau' (literally means prawn balls due to the way the deshelled prawns looked when cooked). Fresh and crunchy, both vegetables and seafood.ALASKAN SPIDER CRAB in superior soup!!! I repeat. ALASKAN SPIDER CRAB.Let's hear it again. ALASKAN SPIDER CRAB. Fuh *wipe brow*.This is what I really want to show off! ALASKAN SPIDER CRAB *swoon*

About the width of a spread out palm, it looked fierce but no big claws? Oh, the shell/shield was soft too.Thorns? What thorns? These? Bristles aje-lah – stiff hair. Yea yea I did have to brave myself before touching those. =P *swoon* That was it's claw. Puny huh. Also not much to dig from the fat body either. Sweet succulent meat concentrated in those thick spidery legs. *swoon*

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

ARGH!!..that crab is snickering at me..

Big Boys Oven said...

Wah! The price is also very unique!!!

Tummythoz said...

fezzaboy, I'm not sure. Only know about the branch in Peejay.

wmw, not casual at all. We got carried away because a friend claimed the prices very reasonable. Lucky the credit card machine works else we'll be washing seafood tanks!

judy, RM655 for 4. They specialise in supplying imported live seafood. Nevermind, I'll mop.

new kid on the blog, if only my job allows entertainment expenses claims..

Tummythoz said...

teckiee, looks only. Felt kinda plasticky. The staff would just dip bare hands into tank and grab!

precioau pea, selling & cooking same restaurant so no separate charges. Cheap kah? Hopping over shortly to savour your encounter with this delicious creature.

meiyen, can. Just don't order anything else heavy. In any case, you have my contact number right? ;)

NJoe, maybe it's miming 'pinchy pinchy'?

big boys oven, that means cheap or expensive?

jason said...

Yuh, fierce looking crab. Alamak, RM600++ ??

*jumps back 5 steps*

Precious Pea said...

Cheap leh, the Unique in Section 14 comes with two bill, one for the seafood and one the cooking charges. Believe me, you get a shock with the cooking charges!!!

Jackson said...

wow.... so expensive!!!! I will never afford to try lo

The Cooking Ninja said...

Holy cow! That's one expensive meal indeed. I took a double look at the price of the soon hock and the spider crab ... my gosh! I would have fainted on the spot upon seeing the bill.

Tummythoz said...

jason, once u tasted it, guarantee u'll sprint back!

jackson, precious pea the crab queen already declared cheap so should be reasonable. Maybe if we all share & take a claw each, how?

the cooking ninja, *sigh* that's quite the normal pricing for such seafood in this city.
