Went for a quick dinner nearby the place we stay. Yet again, I’m at the Fishing Village seafood restaurant for the second time.

... a few big prawns, enough for the few of us, especially when I was still on strict diet.

This time, the salted egg yolk prawns weren’t that good, despite I was comparing to the one I had the first time, which was already cold and slightly sweetened. The fish was acceptable with the soup right on spot. Fortunately, the soup wasn’t as devastating as the one we had in Yan Yan A One‘s. Then my favourite black pepper fried squids. This time, the squids was not fully deep fried, it was a tad less crunchy than those I had last time. Finally, the tom yam vermicelli was acceptable, but it was a bit sweet though which I find it rather odd.

... DL said, make sure there's at least 1 fish dish. Knowing he loves Teo Chew steamed with super sour. This was a special request with pH2.5 soup. Look at the leakage at the bottom of the pan.

This place was a pretty good one, amidst the bad lighting conditions. The clay pot pork belly with salted fish was quite nice. PG was asking for all lean meat at first, but the lady boss assured him that it has to be taken with fats on the meat and no one asked for lean meat only for such dish. I was chuckling away at my table corner (though the table was round, somehow I managed to find a corner for myself). The gravy was sweetened though. Then the stir fried kai lan was amazing. The taste was just right, not too salty and the feeling of healthy dish as it wasn’t too salty like other places. I felt so contented with it.

Hot plate bean curd was nice, but I still preferred my favourite hot plate bean curd laden with superb mushroom sauce. Only to be found in Subang Hi-Tech. Finally, when the fish was served, I was almost blinded by the acidic vapour billowing up from the plate. The soup was super sour and super salty at the same time. A pH2.5 kind of soup. DL loves it, I can’t take it any longer. I thought I lost my tongue from the corrosion.

A place worth another visit, maybe not going to challenge the lady boss for an “extra sour” Teo Chew style steamed fish.
