If my memory serves me correct, this should be the third time Cheesie and I went for a seafood dinner. Together with Cindy, we decided to give South Sea Seafood a try instead of Lala Chong, which we went on the first two occasions.

There are a few more seafood places in the vicinity and I have a feeling it’s only a matter of time before we sample all of them.

South Sea Seafood, very big selection of live seafood

South Sea Seafood is located just next to the runway of the old Subang Airport, parking is a relatively painless affair as the restaurant has a dedicated free car park right across the road with friendly parking attendance ever so eager to assist you. Definitely a plus point.

There are plenty of aquariums with live and some pretty exotic seafood on display at this restaurant, snow crab, abalone, mantis prawn, geoduck, etc. Pretty similar to Pantai Seafood in this regard.

baked crab, steamed red snapper with ginger, two-style kailan

For the three of us, we ordered a couple kilograms of baked crabs, a pretty good portion of steamed red snapper, and a two-style kailan to go with some rice. Crustacean, fish, vegetable, balance and complete.

The size of the baked crabs was very good. The top half of the claws were as big as Cheesie’s oversized shades, and most importantly, they tasted so succulent and flavorful. By having crabs prepared this way, you get the natural flavor of the seafood, and thus freshness is most important since there are no strong spices and other ingredients masking the original taste. For good quality crabs, avoid having them with fancier preparation methods.

Cheesie, Cindy, and Yours Truly having a crabby time!

The steamed red snapper is topped with a layer of finely chopped garlic and spring onion. The greenish sauce goes well with the fish and gives it a slightly spicy and fresher taste.

Deep fried shredded kailan leaves topping the more conventional sauteed vegetable of the same kind looks like a pretty weird combination, but they actually tasted rather nice. The crunchy deep fried leaves carries a texture not unlike dried Japanese seaweed and gives the normal kailan dish another dimension. I liked it.

The girls had some ice cream as desserts to conclude the dinner. Everything came to a total of a little over RM 100, a pretty average bill for what we ate. Cindy also wrote about the experience here, where she tried to play with a small boy during our dinner (small boy didn’t want to layan her).

  4. hi ky,
    my office just nearby, many tourist bus come here for seafood ever since terminal 3 is operating.

    I like to recommend Kwai Lam Seafood restaurant which is further in Kg. Baru Subang. Kwai Lam is more known to people here in Kg. Baru Subang. My fav are fried chic wing, lala meeboon, sweet & sour crabs and fried sotong.
    I thought you might be interested. Cheers!

  24. Jade Zheng

    sien. i want bird park! )=

  25. desmond-t,
    this place is slightly further inside.

    ooo definitely. 😀


    Very cool emoticon kan? hehe, That catfish and sotong bakar probably cost quite a bit. I never really fancy “pak sou kong” myself.

    HAhahaha be more open!

    Jade Zheng,

  26. nice meeting u at the nokia event! n no..i dun always spill beers! =P hehehe

  27. The seafood posting reminded me that of my seafood experiences in Sabah . You can eat some bake lobster Kota Kinabalu with a reasonable price.
    But my greatest experiences is eating barbeque squid after snorkeling where the squid was hunted on the spot by our tour guide .

  28. huei,
    Hahaha I SURE HOPE NOT! 😛

    OWooo Sabah, yes yes I can hear youu

  29. Hoong Foong Dim Sum at Subang Jaya is nice too!

  30. very crowded n nice …..

  31. jutasik,
    ooo I see, thanks!

    Yaa 😀

  32. Only one word to say – EXPENSIVE!!!

  33. SL,
    not too bad for RM 30+ per pax considering the huge crabs tho. 🙂

  34. This place is a rip off. They con ppl not only by their expensive prices but also by the seafood’s weight. They served us a 600-700 grams Patin fish but charged us 1.1/1.3 kg. I’ve read others whom visited this restaurant and got conned of LOBSTER’S (weight) as well… PFF.

    • Jh: if they rip off people by falsifying weight of seafood then it’s a ground to actually file consumer complain. Luckily I didn’t have that kinda problem there before tho.. I’ll be more careful, thanks for the feedback. 🙂
