Seafood Platter (Jim Morris)

Going overboard with your order of seafood is not entirely a bad thing, if the food is delicious and aptly prepared as such.

When it comes to our weekly dose of cereal prawns and butter squids, we tend to head down to Mak’s Place and if desperate enough, to the one about a hundred metres away from it, where prices are slightly steeper but the food not as good. That is when we have time to spare.

When we don’t, there’s only one place that we head to, Seri Laut Malay Seafood. Located underneath a HDB block in Jurong West, this place serves reasonably-priced seafood that easily beats those along Upper Changi Road. Sure, if you really want a better ambience and perhaps even tastier seafood, they’ll probably be found in kelongs along the beaches. But this is Singapore.

Our order of shark’s fin soup, butter squids, cereal prawns, sweet and sour sliced fish and hotplate tofu tasted just right. The only thing that tasted a bit weird was the ‘chicken drumsticks in thick soya sauce thingie’. It tasted great at first but was a bit too much on the second helping. The creme de la creme was the chilli crabs accompanied by lightly fried buns.

Funny how I came away from the meal still yearning for those buns, so soft … almost tofu-like.

  1. hehe – Sarah looks a bit serious or doubtful about the food.

  2. She always looks doubtful until she gets to taste them and monopolise everything. 🙂

  3. hehe – she’s got good taste lah. And now I’m craving for LOTS of prawns – I’m a real prawn monster. Don’t forget, if you want anything from the U.S. – let me know since I’ll be back in October!

  4. There are tiger prawns in Singapore with your name on them, just waiting.

    Actually, there is one thing I would like you to check for me. And it’s this. Let me know the price that they’re selling in your area. Can’t seem to get it in Singapore.

  5. mcm sedap gitu.

  6. Memang sedap … hingga menjilat jari. 🙂
