Restoran Ocean King Seafood, Sandakan

It does not need to study a rocket science to know a restaurant which is meant to bait the tourist but somehow I still ended up in there. The place is called Restoran Ocean King Seafood. Pretty frustrated for me at that time.

Very nice red carpet ready to bait you in. This restaurant is built on top of the sea.
They have their own "Kelong" type of aquarium to rear their own fishes and other sea creatures.
Look at their fish is so real big! I always never get to order fish because fish is just too big for us who always having two pax to dine all the time.
Sea snails which later you will see them on my plate.
Very limited lobster to choose from.
"Pissing" prawn?
Clams and see them on my plate below.
Clams with Ginger & Onion @RM10.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 2/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - Yes, their clams are quite big in size but I am not really impress with the taste of the ginger and onion which are barely reach the meat.

Sea Snails @RM10.00
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 1/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - Only one way to cook them which is steamed. So nothing special about this dish. But one thing for sure is you are advised not to eat the sea snails without the special sauce because it taste so raw. But once you have the sauce which is spicy and sour with slightly sweetness in it, this will be a great dish for you.

Butter Lobster @RM88.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - If is not because I chose to cook it in buttery way, I really barely can eat something out from this lobster. When cook the lobster in butter, the shell will be soften so you can eat together with the shell.

Baked Mantis Shrimp @RM24.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - The waitress said this is their signature way of cooking this Mantis Shrimp. However, I barely can eat any meat with that so called signature cooking.

A name for you to remember to avoid at all cause. They charged so expensive yet does not accept credit card unless you are allowed to be charged another 6%. Super ridiculous. Therefore, sorry that no details about this restaurant will be given because it is just really waste of my time to do that. 
Total Damage: RM136.00

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
