This weekend starts the Ramadhan month where the majority of our fellow Malaysians perform their fasting ritual.
Which can only mean one thing, a reason for the whole working team to go out and eat!
Alas, every year appears to be the same old thing; hotel buffet.
This year with the recession and etc, everyone is coming up with ideas and Bangsar Seafood Garden has come up with a variety of set dinners to celebrate the ocassion with chinese halal food.
So with good timing that we were invited by the infamous FBB and Jade from BSG to sample some of their signature dishes available in their Ramadhan menu.
The fish reminded me of what mom cooks at home, assorted bean sauce on fried snapper. What makes mom's version better is the addition of minced pork, the miniscule pieces of minced chicken i spotted probably explains the difference.
Prawn Curry reminded me of our secret rendevous with Nibong Tebal prawns. This was in a lighter shade and thickness with smaller but nonetheless fresh prawns. Perhaps some Bengali bread to dip in?
Braised beancurd with some waterchestnut, carrots and yam pieces is an example of a typical dish that we would order to cater to the kids, plenty of tasty sauce and smooth silk beancurd.
Stew cabbage with (dried scallops that i could not see) and mushrooms. The cabbage absorbed all the flavours in the stock and gives you another dimension to your usual crunchy vegetable. A perfect detox dish if you are to be on vegetables (doubt the stock is vegetarian though).
The omelette came plated in a stack like pancakes. Tastewise, how else can eggs taste like? Duh.
Someone was complaining that there were no carbs being served on the menu. This was swiftly solved with a heap of fried rice with prawns, egg floss (the kind you get in butter prawns) and generic crab claws. The crab claws really didn't do the dish any good and should not be there. The generous amount of prawns in the rice was gorgeous to bite into and the intense flavours of the egg floss lend it more taste to the rice.
I think it must be the lack of carbs i have been taking during dinner time.
Now Bangsar Seafood Garden will not be Bangsar Seafood Garden without some signature Crabs.
Salted Egg Yolk Crab, took a claw and it literally clogged my arteries with the salted egg yolk.
The Wet Butter Crabs calls for any carbs that can soak sauces well, bread, rice, even pasta!
To end dessert with a Mango Sago, Frat Mustard loving it!
