I am back here again in less than a month. This is now my go-to place for BBQ seafood in JB. Tried the salted egg prawns previously and I loved it. Now I am having it together with squid to have the best of both in a dish. The grilled prawns were still as good and the sotong was cooked just right, chewy but not rubbery.

After having so much seafood on the table, it's good to have some greens to go along. I like how my greens are even grilled over banana leaf which gives an additional smoky and earthy flavour 》RM10

This is one of the popular BBQ restaurants in JB where it gets really crowded on weekends (not sure about weekdays). I placed my orders at 9:30pm and waited for 1.5 hours for my food. They serve up a wide variety of fish, seafood and vegetables. Choices of fish range from groupers, pomfret, sea bass and stingrays. Other choices of seafood include crayfish, flower crab, clams, prawns, squid and otah. There is no menu over here. Ordering works by choosing our choice of seafood followed by how we want it to be cooked. Some recommended dishes shown on the wall are sambal sotong, white pepper crab, scallion broiled fish, sambal noodles, Portuguese fish, sambal stingray, salt-grilled crayfish and ginger scallion lala.

The salted egg prawns are nicely grilled and pair well with the creamy and savoury salted egg sauce. The ginger scallion lala was fragrant, slightly salty and paired better with rice. The salt-grilled crayfish was my favourite and I regretted not ordering more. It was plump and juicy while retaining the natural sweetness of the flesh. Very fresh and sweet. I also had the sambal stingray that came in a generous portion. The fish was fresh, moist and meaty and the sambal used was a little different but it tasted so good and spicy.

Brioche toast fried in eggs with cinnamon and butter mix, topped with caramelised banana, a slice of chicken ham and a scoop of vanilla ice cream then finished off with a drizzle of maple syrup. The fluffy brioche toast was house-made and pan-fried to a nice crisp with subtle sweetness and creaminess from the ice cream 》RM29.80

Fish head curry served in a claypot loaded with fleshy fish meat, cabbage, lady finger, long bean, fried tofu skin and tau kee. Their portion comes in 3 sizes with a small portion serving only fish steak while medium and large comes with a choice of fish head or tail. Each serving is freshly prepared upon ordering where they will place the fresh fish steak/head/tail into the claypot, add in the vegs and curry to cook it over the fire before serving it bubbly-hot to our table.

If you are expecting curry with a very thick consistency then you may not appreciate this place. The curry gravy here is not heavily saturated with coconut milk which is less jelly and drinkable. The fish meat absorbs the savoury curry gravy well and goes perfectly with rice. A small portion is just nice for 2-3 pax 》RM40 / Small (Fish Steak)

It's time to consider having curry fish head for breakfast because the waiting time nearer to lunch hour is approximately 1 hour and they are not open for dinner.

Its just jelly with fresh milk. There's not much taste to the jelly... Feels like I'm just drinking a cup of fresh milk with added texture from the jelly 》RM11.90

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
