Eating healthy is always good but how do we ensure what we eat are healthy? Well, the simple way is to eat unprocessed food, without sugar, without flavoring, without salt, without MSD…etc. As long as the food is natural then it is healthy for our body. With that said, the best option is to eat something that freshly steamed. We ate in Steamed Seafood Hot Pot 蒸味鲜 at Golden Triangle before and since then we fall in love with simple cooking “Steamed”.
The restaurant located at Jalan Macalister offering big space for dining within two floor, each table are fill with the special steamed cook. It is very simple but super efficient, it took only a few minute to cook meat, seafood and vegetable.
We had apple vinegar drink which direct import from China, it taste sweet and sour. Very appetizing.
We had 4 pax Turbot Fish & Prawn Set RM228 which came with clam 400gram, 4 big scallop, 2 chicken drum stick, assorted vegetable, Japanese tofu, mushroom, siew mai, fuzhou fish ball and rice with pork ribs and dried scallop. The rice, pork ribs and dried scallop will be put at the bottom of steamer and fill up with water, which will eventually fill with meat, seafood and vegetable essence from the steaming process.
Well, if you are condiment lover like we do then you can get whole lot of different condiment for your dipping. We highly recommend 老干妈酱 Lao Gan Ma sauce which is a type of bean paste but it taste extremely good, it goes well with all sort of ingredients even porridge.
Hairy Crab are not included in the menu but if you choose set menu then you can get one for just RM30, hairy crab are seasonal seafood which most likely not available after mid of December so get it while stock last.
Turbot Fish is the signature of the meal, it is high in collagen and omega 3. Pretty rare and expensive fish, but it has very springy texture and sweet taste. It is a must try fish as it taste really really really really good.
New Dragon Gate Seafood Village Restaurant located behind Viva Food Court (Small alley beside Chinese Swimming Club). As usual they always stock with fresh seafood such as lobster, crab, different kind of fishes and all other type of seafood as well.
金沙蒜焗生蠔 Garlic Butter Baked Oyster, honestly I am not a big fans of oyster as I can’t really find fresh oyster in local market but I am very impress with the way they cook it with garlic and butter that make it taste awesomely good. Oyster are extremely fresh and big in size, it has very smooth texture with milky taste.
干贝鱼汤菌浸时蔬 Stir Fried Vegetable with Dried Scallop and Mushroom, the soup sweet taste extract from fish and dried scallop are very tasty. Topping with fish skin are special and taste good.
