小北江河鲜阁,Qingyuan

In China, their seafood restaurant is more or less the same like what you see in Malaysia. The only difference is their seafood selections are plenty and they are more transparent on how they cook them.
You will seldom see this elephant nose oysters in Malaysia.
That is the price of the crab in China. It is selling by per piece instead of per kg. RM19.00/piece is not a bad price at all.
Fresh water turtle is very common in China to make good soup.
At last, something common in Malaysia.
A prawn above prawn? What a scene!
Blowfish...a poisonous fish which must be handle with care. Even when you eat.
Immediately slaughter in front of you after you have chose your seafood. I doubt I still have the appetite to eat after watching so better leave.

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Not a very big abalone but the price is so expensive. Anyway, the taste is very good. One is just not enough but when thinking about my wallet...I will have a second thought and will think it is enough.

Soon Hock Fish (Body) - This is the best dishes of all. The meat is so sweet when they steamed them like this. One fish but they prepared in two dishes for us. Very seldom you will see restaurant in Malaysia willing to do this extra work. The leftover head is used to make superior soup.
Soon Hock Fish (Head) - It is used to make this superior soup. Very delicious and the soup is rich of fish taste. Not fishy taste but pure fish taste. Absolutely brilliant! Both dishes cost RMB137.30

Taste: 4/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - It is a different type of crab which is sold by kg. So that's the price is so expensive. Tasty meat and really have full of meat in it. But not really worth it because in Malaysia with such price we can eat more than one crab.

Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - Tasty and fresh meat. Very simple and easily done to cook these. As you can see they just steamed it. These prawns are really small. So if it is done other than steaming, you hardly able to taste the prawn meat.

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.

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.
