Over the weekends we found ourselves on the duty-free island that is Langkawi. Instead of a nice relaxing weekends at Datai like last time, this trip was for Haze’s speed painting job and we only had an evening to spend, so naturally we went to Cenang beach area.
Qiang Shi Fu Seafood Restaurant, Langkawi
Like most who’re at the area for the first time, we took the opportunity to visit the Underwater World Langkawi (will write about that), followed by looking at the variety of duty-free chocolates available at the stores.
By then, it’s dinner time. After looking around for a bit, we decided to dine at Qiang Shi Fu Seafood Restaurant, one of the very few (if not the only) Chinese restaurants at the area.
Like most seafood restaurants, they have a host of live seafood available for your picking. My eyes were fixated at those huge live top shelf in the tank by the entrance, so that we ordered 4 of those steamed with garlic, which turned out sweet, fresh, and perhaps just a bit on the chewy side.
red snapper, steamed with “choi pou”
We also had a red snapper steamed with fried ginger and choi pou (preserved radish) which turned out way better than expected. The fish was fresh and flavors well balanced with the other ingredients. In fact, I will try to cook our fish with this method.
steamed live top shelf, vegetable soup with salted egg
Pea shoots in soup filled our quota for fiber & vitamin C, and did the job rather well too. They even have a bit of salted egg in the soup for that extra kick.
Overall the meal cost us RM 89.50 including a RM 5 can of Tiger beer. I felt that it was a pretty decent value for what we had, and would not hesitate to return should we head to Langkawi again.

Paylesser: that username.. ermm.

KY, peashoot in soup is like spinach to me and love it in many kind of dishes. I even make dumplings with it also. I sometime put peashoot on of tofu and steam it and pour soy sauce and sesame oil on top for fast side dish.
Vickie: yah, very refreshing vegetable isn’t it?
Have not been to Langkawi for years now. Salted egg in vegetable soup? That’s interesting.
suituapui: ya it was indeed quite interesting, my last time to Langkawi that involves not just staying at the resort was over 25 years ago 😀
My eyes also got fixated on those live top shells…and mantis prawns. RM6 per 100g may sound cheap but those clam shells weigh a tonne! O_o
eatwhateatwhere: hahah the top shells is what got me into the restaurant too!
Langkawi – a fine place to eat seafood.
Looks nice steamboat.
I was on the island in 2017. I liked very much the local beaches. And of course sea food is a unique pleasure.
Serg: that’s good to hear. 🙂
