Mom and brother visited over the Chinese New Year break, so naturally we’d be heading for some good food since this “hobby” does run in the family. And since part of West Coast Expressway is now opened, we thought it’d be a good idea to head to Kuala Selangor area for lunch, so we did.

Our destination was the heart of the seafood area in Kuala Selangor by Pasir Penambang. I’ve previously had a good experience at Jetty Seafood there, so this time around thought we would take a stab at trying out the restaurant next door to it at River View Seafood Restaurant.

Both restaurants looked about equally as busy during this period, a week day.

River View, like Jetty Seafood, are both pork free restaurants, in fact, you can’t even really find any meat items that aren’t seafood.. except for chicken. However, the menu is still pretty extensive (see below), there’s crab, prawn, fish, squid, clams, mantis prawn, and various vegetable.

For the three of us that day, we .. ahem… perhaps ordered a little too much.

There were a total of 6 dishes altogether, starting from the staple – lala meehun (RM20). Portion was pretty decent for this one and it absolutely packed with those tiny lala meat, making it very fragrant and absolutely delicious.

Thai long bean (RM 16) was the vege of the day for us, I liked that there’s some anchovies and peanuts with it, and with a squeeze of lemon, bringing out quite a change of taste contrasting with all these seafood.

Their fried squid (RM 22) was one of the best I tried from anywhere, super light batter with fresh squid that’s cooked just right, maintaining the soft texture, excellent. Mom’s favorite.

Then there’s tomyam coconut prawn (RM 28), providing a spicy dish to elevate the entire meal, this too tastes really good, but funnily the portion was bigger than what a coconut can contain, so half of it is served in bowl.. should have given us two coconuts!

Chili bamboo clam (RM 16) was the only disappointment of the meal, while seasoning was good, the clam was a bit too tough and chewy. The server explained that this was due to the size of clams being too big.. can’t say I really agree. Oh well.

Lastly, you can’t call it a proper seafood dinner without having some crabs, right? Our soft shell crab with salted egg (RM 39, RM 13 each, min order of 3) turned out to be another winner. It was rich, delicious, and .. perhaps a bit too much! We chewed all down and enjoyed nonetheless.

If you find yourself at Kuala Selangor or Sekinchan, this place is definitely worthy of consideration for a seafood meal. With total bill of RM 151.00, the price was certainly right too, on top of the great taste (minus that clam..)

    The price was totally wallet friendly considering so many seafood dishes!
    I wonder why the dish is called Thai long bean? Because it is dressed in Thai inspired sauce?
