I know I wrote about this in my previous review of the KTM Spa Villa and Resort but I didn’t take many photos of the food we ate then, so here are pics of our dinner this time.
But first, there was the usual clamoring of business by the beer ladies the moment we stepped into the food court: Heineken, sir? Carlsberg, sir? Tiger, Sir? Bintang beer, sir? Buy 5 get 1 free… In the end, at the suggestion of Wen, we ordered Bintang beer. It was very light, much like Heineken or even lighter, and wasn’t to the men’s liking but still they managed to ‘bottoms up’ 12 bottles.
It was full moon as you can see in this next picture. There is a karaoke lounge (KTV) with a stage in the food court area where diners can go up and sing a song or two if they’re brave enough. You get cheap and good food plus live entertainment for free 🙂 The bikes on the stage are lucky draw prizes. Too bad we won’t be going back next month for the grand draw 😛
We ordered from the same stall as before, the 999 Seafood stall. The salted egg crab was a disappointment. The crabs were deep-fried till they were too dry and you couldn’t get much meat out of them.
The butter prawn wasn’t fantastic either. A tad too bland for my liking.
This sambal kangkong wasn’t too bad.
Another disappointing crab dish. Maybe if they had used bigger crabs it would’ve been better. Perhaps they aren’t big on crabs there like we are in Singapore….
This deep-fried fish seemed to be everyone’s favorite especially hubby’s since he couldn’t take hard stuff because of weak teeth. We even had an encore of this…
These deep-fried buns were meant for soaking up the gravy of the chili crab. They were so nice and crispy that you could even eat them on their own.
We had this garlic chicken the first time we were there but this time it didn’t taste as good as before. Time to change our makan (eating) place, perhaps?
The mussels were alright. They were spicy and fresh.
Prior to being served with these dishes, we polished off 2 plates of oyster omelette (Orh Luak), a plate of grilled cuttlefish and 10 sticks of Otak-otak. The oyster omelette was as good as we remembered, and much better than what we can get in Singapore.
I have a feeling this post is going to be more popular than the other posts…food always draws in the crowd (or readers) 😛
