I am an avid seafood lover and it's no surprise that im always on the search for the best seafood restaurants in town and beyond. Recently i managed to try Muhibbah Seafood Restaurant, located in Sg Penchala is their new premise as it has moved from its previous location in Taman Tun.
This new location sits on top of a hill overlooking the greeneries of what is left of Sg Penchala amidst the heavy development around this area. Being here made me feel as if im somewhere out of KL and it's a good thing as being city dweller, all we wanted during the weekend is some peace and quiet.
The friendly owner or manager greeted us and took our order.After that the preliminaries were the serving of nuts and refreshing tissues
We ordered the Chilli Cockles.This was nicely cooked with apparent taste of soy sauce and fermented bean paste (taucu)
then the seafood tomyam. Not the usual thick broth found in Thailand but has similar taste
then the Butter Prawn. Fresh succulent and big prawns served here
The Kangkung Belacan. Love the fact that the belacan taste can be well tasted as in most places you didnt get the taste of belacan but only the smell.
finally the Sweet and Sour Garoupa (Kerapu). We ordered the smallest fish and it came out sufficient for the two of us. Nice balance of sweet and sour of the sauce as well.
For an establishment of this standard we found the price of the dishes affordable and with the taste and quality of the foods we'll definitely return to try other dishes in this restaurant. The only disappointing thing is that they dont serve crab here. Cheers-Kay2014
