Oriental Red Seafood Restaurant located along Lebuhraya Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu (formerly known as Jelutong Expressway) grand opening at 25-Oct 2017, in operation for pretty much more than 1 month but it already a well known seafood restaurant in Penang.

Oriental Red Seafood Restaurant is a super big restaurant and market, occupying 12000 square feet in two-storey commercial building. Uniqueness of Oriental Red Seafood is not only the fresh and rare seafood but also the market where customer can source for pretty much anything, you name it you can find it, lobster, fresh water prawn, giant octopus, big scallop, abalone, sea cucumber, wagyu, import fruits…etc. Second floor offer Japanese, Korean and Local snack and food. Definitely a great place for souvenir as well.

No real menu for dine in but since this is a seafood market, customer can choose fresh seafood, frozen seafood, packaging seafood…etc and chef will prepare accordingly. Dishes can be prepare in grilled or hotpot. Something special about the Hotpot is the Nabe Soup which are import from Japan directly.

Fresh Seafood on display, customer can choose any seafood and chef will prepare accordingly. Great Variety and it is extremely fresh as well.

Tips* Imported Seafood are flown in on Friday, so if you are looking for the best and fresh seafood, go on Friday!

重庆老火锅 Kelawai Chong Qing Lao Huo Guo Georgetown

重庆老火锅 Kelawai Chong Qing Lao Huo Guo Georgetown located along Jalan Kelawai situated in a bungalow, ample of car park available in front of the restaurant. Inside of the restaurant are nicely decorated with Chinese theme with a small “river”. Our first impression one Chong Qing Steamboat is all about spicy but here they not only offer Steamboat instead Dry Pot, a-la-cart dishes and BBQ are also available.

RM2 per head for dipping sauce & fruits. More than 30 different type of dipping sauce available, it just too many to name all. The combination can be as many as you want but in order to get a good bowl of dipping sauce we found Sesame Sauce, Coriander, Garlic and Sesame is a must. Unlimited supply of watermelon or other fruits of the days.

We had twin pot with 干锅螃蟹 Hot “Dry Pot” with Flower Crab – Market Price and 药膳菌菇鸡汤 Herbal Mushroom Soup RM12.50. Dry Pot are filled with fresh flower crab, potato, onion, spices and chili. Crab fully absorb the spice and chili fragrance, it taste quite spicy with a little bit of numb feeling. After enjoying crab they will then pour in spicy soup for steamboat. Herbal Mushroom Soup taste a little bit sweet, it is good for those who doesn’t prefer spicy.

Restaurant operation hour is a little bit odd as they only start business from 6pm and close on 5am. Hong La Jiao offer rather authentic Sze Chuan type mala (spicy) steamboat but I am not very sure whether Dry Steamboat is origin from Sze Chuan or not. Hehe! Let it be, as long as it taste good.
