Seafood & Fish
Malaysia is a multi-cultural nation. We have holidays on Eid, Chinese New Year, Diwali and Christmas etc. The festivities are often beyond religious boundaries; there are parties everywhere, and people hanging out in celebratory mood.
Me and my family had a reunion dinner on Christmas night, Chinese style, at Fresh Unique Seafood 23 restaurant in Petaling Jaya…
The Norwegian Seafood Export Council set a new world record last week at China’s Shanghai Expo in celebration of the arrival of Norwegian Salmon No. 10,000,000 to China (and perhaps a bit of peace making for the Nobel prize).
The record-setting sushi mosaic featured 8,374 pieces of sushi made from different types of Norwegian seafood, primarily salmon, but also cod, mackerel and prawns. The mosaic covered 20.13 square metres, used 120 kilos of rice and 65 kilos of Norwegian Salmon, and took 6 hours and 15 minutes to complete.
Dinner on Feb 14, octopus hotpot at a restaurant in Jongno. Most restaurants were closed because of Korean New Year; the food alley near the area was one of the very few places which were in operation.
Cha Ca La Vong is a restaurant in Hanoi famous for its grilled fish (Cha Ca) dish which was created some 130 years ago. The restaurant/dish is so famous that the street is named after it, and it’s featured in almost every single Hanoi’s travel guide.
There’s one problem though, as some other restaurants are riding on its fame with similar name and menu to take advantage of naive foreign travellers, and I was one of the fallen prey of the conspiracy during my Hanoi trip in July 2008…
Used to dine at here occasionally when I was staying nearby at Kelana Jaya, but this was my first visit since moving to my new place in late 2007.
The restaurant’s signature dish is Siong-Tong La-La (clamps in special stock), and they always maintained a decent standard with their crabs. There are a few other gems in their menu, but I would advise staying away from the fish dishes. Overall a good dining place with reasonable price.
