I’ve been not updating my blog and missing like for one week. I’ve been holding myself back after the incident of losing my grandma. But seems like keeping myself in my own world didn’t help at all. I need to get back to track to avoid myself from thinking too much. I guess blogging might be able to help.
We were told by an ex-colleague that this restaurant serves good tasting claypot fish. This restaurant named Ji De Lai San Ding Seafood is somehow ‘hidden’ in a residential area somewhere between Jelutong and Batu Lanchang. I’ll point you to the right direction later in this post.
There’s a big dining area, guess it’s to accomodate the non-stop visits of its customer.
Of course we did ordered the claypot fish. We ordered ‘red snapper‘ (ang jo) fish if I got the fish name correctly. When it arrived, we were both shocked to see the serving size. The fish was huge and so was the claypot. The coriander leaves and spring onions were added into the claypot right after it’s served.
The fish was kinda of soaked in a redundant amount of soy sauce. The soy sauce tasted kinda too sweet to us. The fish meat texture tasted slightly coarse, it could have been due to the hot claypot. The fish might have been overcooked when I took my time to snap the pictures. The sweetness of the soy sauce somehow overpowering taste of the fish itself.
This dish is actually famous when it’s cooked with garoupa fish, I guess I ordered the wrong fish?
As my bf know that I’m craving for Sweet and Sour Pork (Ku Lo Yuk) since this dish was not available at the Tree Shade Seafood Restaurant when we visited there, he ordered this dish for me. The meat was not well marinated though.
It somehow stopped my craving for ku lo yuk with the average taste of it.
A plate of stirred fried kai lan to balance up the meal. Nothing much to brag about, just a normal plate of stir fried vegetable with garlic.
I’ll point you the direction from Heng Ee School. From the school (school on you left), go straight until you reach a traffic light. Go straight and pass the traffic light, you’ll notice a small lane on your left. Turn into the small lane and go straight. The restaurant is somewhere ahead.
