Restaurant Fresh Unique Seafood 23

A generous uncle held a dinner for his family and friends and my family was invited as well. His generousity astounds me but that really is another story altogether.

The occasion was basically nothing. It was a decision made on a whim and he paid several thousand ringgit ( I'm guessing about RM3k? ) for 3 tables worth of really good seafood.

Restaurant Fresh Unique Seafood 23 is located along Jalan Kemajuan in SS13, Petaling Jaya. No pictures of the dishes were taken because I was too shy to take them in the presence of my uncles, aunties and cousins :)

The most striking thing about this restaurant is the abundant live seafood on display in the restaurant ( pictures 1 and 2 ):

See those aquariams at the back? That's only half the picture.

A closer look. Camera phone not good enough to capture the details though.

The slaughtering and cleaning up of the seafood is on display as well.

I'm not kidding when I say that the food here is seriously good. I doubt it's cheap though.

Note: I'm not actually too sure about the order of dishes served... not that it matters much anyway.

We started off with plain steamed prawns and by plain I mean plain. No garnishing to speak of. Just freshly steamed prawns. De-shell and dip with some chilli sauce ( or wasabi ) and enjoy. I love prawns cooked this way, that is with the minimum of ingredients as fresh prawns taste great on their own.

The next dish was some kind of clam like creature. The meat was lightly fried with garlic and spring onions and then served along with it's shell. No one really knew what type of crustacean we were being served.

Then there was spinach soup cooked with of all things century eggs! Century eggs are those preserved eggs which are disgustingly black in colour but I love century eggs. A warning though, preserved things are really bad for health.

I'll just quickly go over the other dishes. We had fish, sea cucumbers, crabs and noodles.

The last thing that I have left out is the escargot. It was my first time eating snails :P Never would have imagined cheese baked snails to taste so good... yummy.

yup yup... it's probably quite expensive (I'm not sure coz I didn't pay for it). The restaurant is airconditioned and quite comfortable if you are in the rooms. Might be a little noisy outside the rooms but if you've been to one Chinese restaurant they're all alike.

No recommendations... I've only been there once. You should ask the staff there.

Hi there, I've been to that restaurant as well. We booked a room, about ten of us, and had like ten different courses. Huge snow crabs, yummy small lobster in black sauce, a huge huge lobster that serves 10, and lots of others. One table that night, I think cost about 3K. I didn't pay, thanks to the good graces of my boss who brought us there on a whim, as he usually does. Truly yummy food. I give it 5 stars.
