Sing Chiong Restaurant, Bekenu

When you are far away from the town, there maybe hard for you to find good food anymore. Fortunately, in this outskirt which is called Bekenu, I found a restaurant which serves delicious Tutu fish which is known as Sing Chiong Restaurant. I am not sure how to explain what is Tutu fish like and why so special about a Tutu fish. All I know is they are fresh water fish which is so delicious.
Wet Noodle Fresh Prawn @RM18.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Recommended by everyone that this is a must order dish because of their fresh prawns. The prawns are good but the noodles are too salty!!! Either this is the way the make it or they accidentally put too much salt.

Steamed Tutu Fish in Soy Sauce @RM32.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - The meat is so sweet and delicious. It is really a must try dish. But for a hardly 400g fish already cost RM32.00 is really too expensive.

When you are at the outskirt, you really cannot complain much seriously. To have a food quality like this, it is consider acceptable already. At least you got to try their Tutu fish, so that you know how do they taste like. Other than that, set your expectation low. You will not disappointed. For me, my only comment about the restaurant is their price is just too expensive in my opinion since they are located in an outskirt.

When I keep mentioning the word "outskirt", it is really outskirt because even my GPS failed to function when I was there. So in the end I can't really pinpoint the exact location of this restaurant. However, I will try to guide you through words here:

1) Bekenu is on your left when you are travelling from Miri. So if you are coming from Niah, it should be on your right.
2) Once you made the turn, go in straight for about 10 minutes to see a small village where you will see shops on your right.
3) Once you meet the first hump, turn left and start asking someone about where is "Sing Chiong Restaurant". It is very famous there, not only to the Chinese but other non-Chinese knows it as well.
4) Please take note that do not try to have your dinner like what I did in this restaurant. The road back to either Niah or Miri is just too dangerous. The Jalan Sungai Saeh road is very bumpy and you really feel like riding in a roller coaster track. Addition to that, there are no street lights. Do visit during other sessions than dinner.

Total Damage: RM56.00
Ambiance: 3/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Slow
Recommended?: Yes for their Tutu fish at least.

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.

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

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.
