Cia Xiang Seafood Restaurant, Bukit Tambun

In my experience so far, the best seafood restaurant at Bukit Tambun is Restoran How Kee Seafood Village. Surprisingly, it is not listed in "Taste with Jason" tv programme. He preferred Cia Xiang Seafood Restaurant somehow. So here I am to find out! Unlike Restoran How Kee Seafood Village, Cia Xiang Seafood Restaurant is very close to Bukit Tambun Tol Exit. While waiting for the first traffic light to turn green, you will immediately see their restaurant signboard on your north east direction.
Crab Claypot Rice @RM54.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 3/5 - The rice in the claypot is extremely delicious with thick crab fragrance in it. However, this has caused the crab meat itself has little left taste in it because being absorbed most of it in the rice. The crab meat is fresh but very near tasteless. It is a waste. In addition, the price is just too expensive for just one crab in the pot.

Fried Prawns in Coconut Gravy @RM20.00
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 2/5 - Very creative combination of coconut meat with prawns. The gravy brings a lot of sweetness but somehow it does not absorb into the fried prawn. At the first place, they shouldn't have fried the prawns. You will discover that when eating the prawn is one taste and the gravy is another taste. They just doesn't blend. As expected, the price is very expensive too!

They have a very large place in this restaurant but there are less than 10 tables are occupied during the weekend. In my opinion, they are overly commercialized by "Taste with Jason" and their price is very expensive. Not worth it so I do not think this is a good seafood restaurant for me. I still think Restoran How Kee Seafood Village is the best seafood restaurant at Bukit Tambun so far.

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.
