Fresh, succulent seafood (among other things) at Bangsar Seafood Garden Restaurant

I was invited to tag along to a food tasting at the Bangsar Seafood Garden Restaurant (BSGR) in One Bangsar. Had a lovely meal with most amiable dinner companions such as Kerol, KY, Haze, Cheesie, Horng and Jade.

Steamed Cod Fish with Essence of Chicken, priced at RM13.00 per 100g. Served with dried lily bulbs (golden needles), mushrooms, dates and garnished with plenty of parsley. Cod is my favourite fish to eat: who can resist its deliciously white, creamy and buttery meat? Melts in your mouth, it does.

But only when it’s really fresh though, else it’s going to be a big problem. Happily freshness is not an issue at the BSGR. The dish was emptied out within seconds.

Baked Chicken with Cheese, RM30 for a Medium serving and RM50 for a Large serving. This was a somewhat confusing dish, as if it didn’t quite know what to do with itself. What is it, really? Well you have baked chicken cut in pieces, of course. The meat is juicy and quite lovely, and the skin crispy with a bite to it. Then you have a tomato-based sauce with mushrooms, peppers and cheese — similar to that of pizza or lasagne. You add the two together and… well for me it was an odd combination at first. I can’t see myself having it with rice, but I can very well imagine having a beer or ten to go with the dish.

I still don’t quite know what to make of it, but I was told that it’s Hong Kong-style. Something like that.

Stir-Fried Prawns, Thai-style. Price ranges from RM38 for a Small serving to RM78 for a Large serving. It arrived in a sizzling pan and in my haste to capture photos of it, some of the sizzling sauce splashed onto my camera lens. Sucks.

The sweet, spicy, sourish sauce was the bomb though! There is only one way you can eat this kind of dish, and that is with white rice. An Asian gourmand’s gourmet heaven!

Assorted Greens with Macadamia Nuts, price ranges from RM15 for a Small serving to RM35 for a Large serving. Green peas, carrots, black fungus, some sort of celery, some sort of roots, water chestnuts and macadamia nuts. Crunchy and yummy.

House Speciality Butter Crabs, RM60 per kg. Served with either fried or steamed buns, and I very highly recommend the fried ones. Good sized, fresh crabs in creamy butter sauce covered with dried curry leaves. It’s a combination that cannot go wrong. We had to have another serving of fried buns because the sauce was just too good to go to waste!

We also had dessert (photos here and here). Was a good time chatting, getting to know Jade, taking in BSGR’s soothing decor. There was also an incident where Horng leaned against a ‘wall’ only to realise that it was one of those feature waterfall walls. With real water. Which means, Horng with a wet sleeve, heheheh. Noob.
