Who is in for this Portuguese Grilled Fish in Petaling Street? They used to be one of the most famous grill fish in this area and the queue was crazy. At least 60-90 minutes queue. Used to take number then walk around in the area to come back for this awesome dish.
We decided to pay a visit again before heading into this new Speakeasy bar – The Deceased and upon reaching, we found that there is a separation seating area. How is it right now? Well, I believe still the same group of people are managing it.
Fit with variety of home made gravy that hit on your palate.
Ingredeint are still being prepared fresh.
My favourite when comes to grill fish is still stingray.
Ordered a few to check it out and seems that their gravy have toned down. Prawns are fresh and mini squid is just perfect combination. Spiciness of it is not longer a bit hit on spot and with very mild sweet end.
Lala was one of their best seller and of course its a must order too, for my personal liking order dish. Pretty good and fresh and serve along with ladies finger. those of you like this would find this a great dish.
here comes my grill stingray fish, as the fish is not too bad, meat softness is there and gravy for this is slightly spicier. Put onto your rice is just a great combination.
Portugese grill Fish Special pricing is not too bad as small starts from only RM 11 and the ingredient they give is pretty decent. Do note that they are pretty strict over no outside drinks.
As I mention there are 2 section of seating area now. The one right infront of Hong Leong Bank belongs to another hawker. For Ikan Pangang Portugis Istimewa is at this side alley.
After your meal, you must not miss to cool down your tummy with the famous Air Mata Kuching in China Town. This Air Mata Kuching in Petaling street had been here for ages and they have another outlet in Mid valley.
I always had 2 glass by myself.
the Ikan Pangang is no longer as good as it used to be. Their quality had dropped over the years and no longer a bit hit as it used to be 15 years ago.
