Ken Well Seafood Restaurant @ Batu 11, Balakong, Cheras

Few weeks back, the group of us went all the way to Balakong, Cheras for some seafood galore, thanks to Dale for inviting us..

The one restaurant that we were going is none other than Ken Well Seafood Restaurant, which has been operating for more than 3 years..

If you follow the Cheras-Kajang Highway, exit to Balakong at the Batu 11 toll plaza where you have to turn right at the underpass, then turn leftat the T-junction..

Go straight all the way until you see exit to Sungei Besi/The Mines/Semenyih, there’s a row of shoplots right before the exit where you can see Public Bank and Brothers Car Audio System shop on your right..

Ken Well is situated right behind the Brothers shop..

If you are coming from The Mines is much easier..Follow Kajang Silk Highway all the way until you see Jusco, then keep left exit to Batu 11/Balakong..Don’t follow Sungai Long/Semenyih..

Keep left all the way to Balakong and you will see the Brothers shop on your left as soon as you take the exit..

*Braised Roasted Pork*

This is the Braised Roasted Pork ala “Tung Poh Yuk”, was nicely made, both pork meat and fat are well-balanced and the meat is tender too..

The gravy is never too much to go with the pork..And who doesn’t love the fatty fat?! It costs about RM23 only..I would say it’s worth it..

*Claypot Steamed Fish*

Claypot Steamed Fish, I could only say the fish is very smooth and tender because I’ve only tasted a bit because the others were so fast that they barely left much for me..

Oh well, must be very good..The price is RM3/100gram..And sorry for the wrong white balance setting..LOL~!!

More mouth-watering dishes after the jump..

Langkawi Trip – Part 3, Fat Mum Seafood Restaurant @ Pantai Tengah

It’s on the first day that we were deprived of food after some long hours of landscape shooting..

Then I remembered that Wilson told me there’s a restaurant called Fat Mum but he didn’t tell me where’s the restaurant located..

Upon driving around Pantai Cenang and back and forth from Awana Porto Malai, we stumbled upon Fat Mum Seafood Restaurant in the middle of Pantai Cenang and the road on the way to Awana Porto Malai..

If not mistaken it’s called Pantai Tengah where you will see lots of Javanese influenced restaurants or spas and some Western restaurants plus resorts along the way..

Do spot the Sunday Bistro and Restaurant, Fat Mum Seafood Restaurant is just nearby and you need to drive/walk in a bit..It’s not quite visible from the main road..

I know it’s a bit simple and nonconstructive but I hope you understand the map and that’s one of the reason I took up engineering wtf..LOL

*The dodgy-looking restaurant is the best hidden gem*

Yes, believe it or not, this dodgy-looking restaurant is by far the best hidden gem in Langkawi, IMHO..

It’s quite well-known to some but it’s still not that famous, which I’m quite glad..Why so? You’ll know later on..

*The restaurant’s main area, the upstairs*

The main area is on the upstairs, so do proceed to the upstairs instead of sit at the lower level waiting for no one to come to take your order..

Like I said, it’s quite well-known to some but it’s not THAT famous, just yet, hence the emptiness you see in the photo above..

*Alcohol feast in duty-free land*

What’s more to drink in Langkawi if not the alcohol? How can you miss out the alcohols or chocolates in Langkawi, right?

Dale and I were very hungry at that time coz we had our lunch quite early, that’s in KL..

Even though there are just two of us, but we ordered enough portion for 3 pax..We were surprised as well..LOL..

What we had ordered? That’s for you to find out after the jump..

Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant @ Telok Gong, Klang

Two weeks ago when everyone was at Sunway Lagoon Beach for the very first MTV World Stage gig, I was at Telok Gong with my family for some seafood galore at the famous Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant..

Although Telok Gong is in Klang but it’s not a far-reach place..Just go all the way on Kesas highway, follow road sign, and you’ll reach Telok Gong or this Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant..

The name Coconut Flower is direct translation of todi (is it?) in Cantonese, “yeh fah jau”..

*The place*

So there were 10 of us, my dad, sis and I, my cousin and girlfriend, and my aunts with their family..

If you want something special for a drink, order the Coconut Flower, “yeh fah jau”..You’ll get a bottle of todi, and a bottle of Guinness Stout of your preference, large or small..

Then we ordered about 7 dishes, including sotong (squid), fish, crab, long beans, prawns, and lala (mussels/clams)..

*Fried Sotong (Squids) With Oats*

We ordered this Fried Sotong With Oats instead of the usual butter fry because it’s less oily than the butter ones..

The fried oats are definitely FTW~!!!

Continue on for more drools~!!!
