Shell Out Seafood Restaurant @ Kota Damansara
There are some restaurant are just unique in a way and why I mention that is this new restaurant that open to its door to public 2 months ago are serving fresh seafood to you and there are no plates and cutleries being provided. To enjoy the maximum feel of the food is you have to eat it with your hand. The concept are from US itself as the owner just came back from the states and decided to do something similar for us to try it out.
Shell Out Seafood is one of another restaurant tug inside this busy area where carpark can be a huge problem during day and night, there will be more luck for us.
Interior here are pretty, as they decorate in a way that we are dining in a mini fishing village that is indoor version, with wooden seating arrangement, fishing net as the wall and you can see crab, fishes on the net too.
It also gives me the Taiwan feeling when I visited one of the cafe last round. They do provide alot of colourful pen for you to pen down anywhere in the shop to make it more creative design as part of their interior.
Menu here is very straight forward as they serve most of the items with shell as mains. That’s how the name of the shop came about.
Set lunch that they are offering are considering cheap. For all your seafood, you can pick the sauce that you would love to add in that comes with 4 types of flavour to add on, Cajun Sensation, Lemon Pepper, Butter Garlic, Spice Up – with 3 level and Shell Bang(which is all sauce mix into one)
Before you eat, you will be given a neck napkins is to prevent the messy sauce flying over and landed on our shirt. We love their quote. Life is too Short to be Serious. Let’s EAT!
Fried Sweet Potato makes a good starter as its being introduce to us, selling at RM 8.90 per basket. The Fried Fish Basket serves deep fried baby pomfret that is crispy inside out @ RM 10.90 per basket.
When you do not have a proper dining area as they pave the whole table with a huge chocolate sheet of dining paper, and sauce are given to us. See what happen to the table and food. Turn into art pieces.
Seafood serve here is very unique as I said they doesnt serve along with plates and the come in bag. It remind me of MacD shaker fries as this is seafood shaker.
Upon our order, it goes by gram. This is 250 g for 5 pax of us with Scallop in 1/2 shell with Butter Garlic sensation (mild) - The scallops were well marinated, shaken in the bag and till butter garlic paste, are landed evenly. Scallop is so fresh and the flavour is little spicy with lemon sour end. Obvious that they have added lemon in but its fragrant enough to make your engine once start, its hard for you to stop.. Its too little and I guess 500g would be a perfect fit.
Another 2 item that came about is Prawns and Clam
Clam (LALA) in Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) – Fresh clams well marinated in lemon pepper paste, tasted really flavourful especially after squeezed in the lemon juices on it. It has mild peppery taste too.
Prawns here are so fresh that I love the texture of the meat, solid and light chewy, with the flavour added on Butter Garlic making it perfect in taste. Not too heavy flavoured, yet you can taste on the mild butter and garlic end. Do squeeze lemon into it, it brings the flavour out more prominent.
This is what we really mean when no tables and cutlers are given. Making sure our finger licking good sensation..keke
Next is interesting as it pack with jumbo sausages, corn (are all additional added items) with Crawfish (YABBIES) in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) .
The taste of it is very unique is like when you cook something fail then you add on whatever ingredient you have then it turns out to be good. Flavour is blended pretty well with sour, spicy, sour and mild sweet is tasted and its a must try for all of you. Spicy OMG lvl 3 is not really spicy after all. We thought that we gonna have huge drop of sweat and tongue go numb and its no where near that.
Price: RM45.90/500g | RM78.90/1kg
The most unique seafood that we have on table for that night is Japanese Snails in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) -
I must say that the snails are huge and Caroline and Eric is like yew.. don want eat can ah . .
Still need to try at least once. See its, really a huge snail, and the texture is pretty unique that the head part is pretty chewy, centerpart is pretty soft and the tail is really really soft till like taufufa already. Dip with more sauce and you wont feel it. Its like eating some unagi experience for me la.
Crab in Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (mild) @ market price.
This is how messy it had turn into by the end of the meal. If you are looking for some new dining experience, do come by this shop and its pretty interesting. Of course you can mix and play with the sauces which is available then my own preference, I would recommend Butter Garlic for Prawns/ Crabs follow by Cajun Sensation + Butter Garlic + Lemon Pepper sensation (OMG lvl 3) .
Since all of us are here, we conteng conteng on their panel also.:D
Its a seafood restaurant and do expect to pay a bit more for this. Please please do order beer. Pairs so well. Yummz!
