Restoran Phuket Seafood (Again!)

Restoran Phuket Seafood
Jalan 12/144A Taman Bukit Cheras
56000 Kuala Lumpur
(Coordinates: N3° 4' 14.5" E101° 44' 56.5")

As is always the case we had actually meant to have dinner at Tumes Café (29 Jalan Damai Niaga, Alam Damai 56000 Kuala Lumpur, Coordinates: E101° 44' 14.25" N3° 4' 28.00") but as luck would have it the place was closed. Being closed on a Saturday night means only one thing: it’s closed for good.

Oh well, since we were in the vicinity we decided to give our new-found favourite Tom Yam shop a go. Like we mentioned earlier, there are a myriad of stalls and restaurants claiming to serve 'Thai' Tom Yam in the Klang Valley. Out of these only a handful are the the genuine article, and since the proprietress and her kitchen staff hails from Patani, Southern Thailand, Phuket Seafood Corner is one of them.

fascinatingly neon-lit

we're back for more good food

Being creatures of habit (read: unimaginative) we inadvertently ordered the exact same dishes we had the last time around, which was (bar one beef dish): 1Tom Yam Campur, 2Sup Ekor, 3Kerabu Sotong and 4Telur Dadar for each of us.

1Hot and sour Thai soup, with broth made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemongrass; kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lime juice, fish sauce, and crushed chili peppers
2Malaysian styled slow cooked Oxtail Soup using a fragrant combination of dried spices and fresh herbs such as garlic, cilantro, cumin, coriander, chilies, and ginger
3Thai Squid Salad - blanched squid with kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, chili, coriander and cumin seeds and fish sauce served on a bed of cucumber and tomato
4Omelette with a smattering of salt

we're glad to be back

ice shavings!

we love this rice pot

As always, we enjoyed every single dish and had no complains whatsoever. And the damage? This restaurant will not cost you an arm and a leg since the total including a round of Iced Lemon Tea for Cat and Brendan and ABC (Ice Shavings) for moi came to a respectable RM32. My (not-so) little sister will be coming in with her husband from Abu Dhabi next week and she has specifically requested that we take them here.
