Hoi Peng Seafood Restaurant, SS2, PJ
Been a while since I last posted..so sorry! Got a special visit by food poisoning, the worst nightmare for foodies :(
It was a gathering for my high school friends, some we didn't meet for a couple of years already.
They wanted seafood and Jo suggested Hoi Peng for the crabs.
Most unfortunately, Jo was sick on dinner day, so we ordered some dishes recommended by the waitress..
We got some fried lala with wine and ginger.. This was tasty as the wine enhances the sweetness of the lala. The ginger and bits of bird's eye chilli added some heat to this dish too.
Some veggies ...we had fu yu yau mak.. It was alright, crunchy veg, maybe slightly salty sauce..
Some stir fried venison.. Usually, I can take gamey meat, but somehow, this venison tasted so gamey, it's rather a turn off. Sad.
Piping hot squids were next..Cooked spicy and sourish, I liked this. The squids were springy and the tangy assam complements it wonderfully.
And finally, the star of the night...
Sweet spicy flavour..
We had some large crabs which is succulent and juicy.The sauce was thick; sweet and rather spicy hits us at the same time, were lovely with the crabs. And of course, the hot man taus to mop up the sauce..
The salty crabs..
I loved this. Though some of them said it was a tad salty, I find it very fragrant...reminds me of seaside..heh, just exaggerating..But seriously, tasting the salty shells and then biting into those sweet, juicy flesh does bring a smile to my face. Easily satisfied, hoh?
Total bill was RM348. I find it a tad pricey. Crabs were already RM201.
