Funny how i dont remember writing this at all, but yet it's sitting patiently at my backlog, fully written, waiting for me to post it up!! By the way, does anyone know how to set an index for blogspot? Care to teach? We're clueless.
For those whom crave for seafood in KL in a casual ambience, where do you usually go to? I have no idea, until I chance upon this restaurant- Restaurant Siu Siu.
Set in a non-pretensive ambience on the higher ground at Robson height, it was strangely cooling enough despite it being an open air restaurant with some metal roofing, it was actually a nice change from my usual haunts, and I was set to get my hands dirty that night.
Our expectations heighten, and like an excited child we were, we looked forward to many items that were well written by the food bloggers. Claypot Crab Rice being one of them that was frequently mentioned. Sure enough, out came a piping hot claypot with one medium sized crab sitting handsomely on a bed of rice that was filled with dark soya sauce. Indeed the aroma of crab drift to my senses and can I say that its “crabilicious??” (is there such words? If not you hear it here first. =P). I enjoyed the fact that the rice texture is nicely separated and not at all lumpy. We slopped up all the rice before getting down and dirty with the crabs, fresh with decent amount of flesh.
As if one is not enough, two’s definitely not too crowded, salted egg yolk crab blew our minds away, we love the intensity of the gravy and how it blend so well with the sweet crab flesh. This calls for some finger licking practices.
Restaurant siu siu also prides themselves on their fresh river fish and we are spoilt with 15 choices! Their supply was sourced from local rivers of perak and Pahang. We ordered a fish too, but I was embarrass to admit I forgot which type it was (I suspect river patin). But rest assured it tasted decent.
All-in-all, a very nice place for seafood, and yes I would definitely visit again within short period.
