We are back to Prangin Mall again to collect our printer hence we need to try another restaurant in Prangin Mall, this time we choose Good Choice Noodle Station hoping we make a good choice. The restaurant is pretty pack as well and only a few table available, we are surprise with the menu price, a standard meal for just RM6 which is pretty cheap.

Fried Pork Chop Tom Yam Noodle Soup RM5.80, pork chop is not deep fried fresh instead it must be deep fried earlier and leave there for quite long as it is not crispy while the tom yam soup taste just normal.

Lolipot Shabu Shabu Queensbay Mall

Lolipot Shabu Shabu Restaurant is one of the most view article in and it time for a return after so long never visit. Last time I went Lolipot Shabu Shabu Restaurant during lunch time where no buffet available hence I decided to try it at dinner time. I read some mix review before going and some complain about it food quality and talk about it service, let me find out what is true and what is not.

It cost RM99 for 2 person which is RM49.50 per pax which is not cheap, it almost hotel buffet price (I mean those normal buffet instead of Japanese or Seafood). My expectation is up one level when realize the price is almost RM50 per pax. The best thing is every individual has it very own pot with your own choice of soup, we selected the milk and tom yam soup.
Lolipot Steamboat Restaurant

Certain seafood is not on the conveyor belt but you may request from the waitress anytime and it unlimited. Item such as flower crab, prawn, bamboo clam, fresh scallop and mantis prawn.
Lolipot Steamboat Restaurant

We had “fresh” scallop, mantis prawn and crab at the first round, when they served the crab I am extremely disappointed. The crab is extremely small and frozen while the scallop is as small as 10cents coin, the worst is the mantis prawn that not even in proper shape. After cooked the crab has some weird taste, the prawn shrink like nothing while the mantis prawn just disappear in the soup. Honestly all those seafood is extremely disappointed and not fresh.
Steamboat Ingredients

The small size scallop that look to be artificial instead of fresh scallop. I might be wrong but my instinct tell me the texture and taste is not fresh.

Shabu Shabu meat has option of Pork, Beef and Lamb. We ordered all 3 type and luckily their shabu shabu is fresh and edible. It quite enjoying eating the slice meat but not much we can eat either as we reserve our stomach for something else, by the way the shabu shabu meat is free flow.

Other steamboat items is not bad, assorted type of fish ball, vegetable, tofu, mushroom, noodle…etc.

They do provide some cooked food but due to the extremely cold air-con all those food become cold, hard and tasteless. They should put steamer or something to keep those food heat else it is not edible at all.

Free flow ice cream has around 4 to 6 choices.

Dessert of the day is Fu Chok Yi Mai.

Overall it is very disappointed, they have to improve on their seafood, I would strongly suggest to reduce the price and take off not fresh seafood. The soup is not bad and those normal steamboat ingredients is acceptable. Service is good, promptly attend to our need with smile.

Tanjung Dawai Chooi Peng Seafood

Chooi Peng Seafood hidden inside one of the fishing village in Bedong, Kedah. The small town name Tanjung Dawai where it located 30km from Sungai Petani, a place known as best seafood in Kedah. Today we are heading toward Chooi Peng Seafood as we heard that they offer very huge size mantis prawn and great seafood.

Baked Crab RM26, baked crab is pretty cheap as the crab has lot of roe in it, that the beauty of crab roe, it gave a very strong freshness taste and flavor even without any additional flavor.

Salt Baked Mantis Prawn RM70, Mantis Prawn is very big in size and fresh, you can see lot of mantis prawn swimming in aquarium and most of it big in size but the price is not cheap, it cost RM60 per kg.
Simple cooking method, baked with baked and that the beauty of natural sweetness, mantis prawn meat very firm and sweet.

If you ask me worth to travel this far for seafood? I would say NO as the food is just normal, basic baked and steamed is worth to eat but not for those deep fried and stir fried dishes.

Richard’s Top Taste Cafe

Richard’s Top Taste Café located at somewhere that is pretty hard to find, the area is pretty silence at night and not much people around. The restaurant itself having quite good business and we do have high hope since we coming from island just to try it out, bought the 5 course meal Online Coupon for RM29.90, it certainly not cheap. We have a choice of either Steak, Chicken or Fish but since chicken finish hence we down with two option which is steak and fish only and that goes our order of the night.

Mushroom Soup with Garlic Bread, mushroom soup is pretty disappointed as it taste exactly the same as what you get out from the can mushroom soup while the garlic bread taste just normal.

Salad with Chicken Ham, curious to know why they emphasize on the chicken ham since it just merely two slice, luckily the vegetable and tomato is fresh.

Perch Fillets with Cheese Sauce, Pan-fried perch fish fillets with the combination of cheese, green pepper, young corn, serve with baked corn on top & mash potato.
It taste normal as the sauce doesn’t have strong flavor while the green pepper making it taste not so good, I believe it is very personal taste bud issue as we don’t like green pepper.

Country Style Strip Loin Steak, Grilled strip loin with chef’s special gravy, serve with jacket baked potato & baked corn on top.
The steak is rather disappointed, it has very chewy texture and the sauce doesn’t bring out the freshness of steak instead it has very isolated strong flavor which totally overlap the steak flavor.

Overall taste just normal, it is pretty hard to justify if I will to pay full amount, with 50% discount I believe it worth for me to buy the experience but if I will to pay full amount I will reluctant to step in, the food quality is not worth the value.

Steamed Lala Bee Hun at Zim Sum Restaurant

Almost every month we visit Restaurant Zim Sum and almost all the time we ordered the steamed fish head noodle but sadly all fish head sold out hence we decided to try lala (clam) this time.

The portion is pretty big and the soy sauce aroma is exactly the same as we had steamed fish head, the soy sauce together with bee hun still tasty like before but unfortunately the lala is not fresh, it has very bad fishy smell and the meat shrink so much and become very hard.

Regret to try Steamed Lala BeeHun, so our advise is stick to what you like the most and avoid something uncertain else you would end up like us.
