It was probably the largest group of food bloggers assembled for a food review at Bangsar Seafood Garden Restaurant yesterday courtesy of an invitation proffered by Jade and facilitated by Fatboybakes.   Thanks to Paranoid AndroidFrat Mustard and a couple of others, we were also assured of our daily tipple, thus ensuring that our tastebuds were suitably prepared for the food review ahead of us.

Boneless chicken with fruit sauce

Crisp skin and moist meat with a slice of mango to offer a balance of flavours.

Steamed red snapper with bean sauce

Fresh and lovely, although I’m not a very big fan of fried fish.

Stir fried prawns in curry

Thick, rich curry – very spicy, so order at your own risk.

Braised beancurd

The beancurd was served with the right balance of side ingredients – broccoli, yam, carrot, water chestnuts.

Stewed chinese cabbage with dried scallops and mushroom

This is one of my favourites.   A whole cabbage stewed, well infused with the flavours of seafood, and served with fried bits of dried scallops and mushrooms.

Egg omelette with crab meat

Lovely in appearance, taking away the monotony of presentation of the humble fried egg.

Fried rice with prawns

If there were any more prawns in this dish, it may as well be called Prawns with Fried Rice.   Tasty, but by this time, we were stuffed.

Stir fried crab with salted egg yolk

I love how the salted egg yolk clings to the shell which begs a good licking.  Thick and lovely with the right amount of spiciness.

Stir fried crab with salted egg yolk

My favourite piece.  Loads of salted egg yolk trapped in the shell.

Butter crab

The star attraction, without a doubt.   Thick, with a smooth consistency, the butter (or rather, margarine) sauce is absolutely delicious.   Curry leaves add flavour.

Fried buns

The tiniest pieces of buns I’ve ever seen.  Each bun is the equivalent of a mouthful.   I’m not sure what they taste like.   Sean grabbed the last one.  He’s fast in everything he does.  Blogging, eating, drinking….

Mango cream with sago

Overall, I couldn’t quite fault any dish, but with the exception of the crabs and a couple of other dishes, it was pretty standard Chinese restaurant fare.   Nevertheless, the restaurant is lovely with modern furnishings, ample carpark, and it’s halal, so it’s great to propagate the concept of 1Malaysia over a crab or two.

Come Ramadan, Bangsar Seafood will be having several special Ramadan Set Menus ranging from RM498++ (10 persons) to RM898++ (10 persons) with 1kg of crabs free of charge.  Not too bad considering how expensive Ramadan buffets at hotels cost these days.
