In the holy month, there are of course many restaurant taking this opportunity to run a promotion. One of a late discovery for me that I just realize, Bali Hai had open in Kota Damansara for nearly a year now. This is pretty well known brand for many Penangnites for its fresh seafood that available in the stretch of Gurney Drive. I often dine there, and till last week only found out about this place. Many people have mix reaction on their food quality. I still trust them my trust for fresh seafood.

-No longer in operation-

One of the place in Melaka to hunt for food, Jason introduce us this fresh seafood that he constantly visit and now, it is not only famous to local crowds as many Singaporean also drop by this place according to him. The place is about 15 minutes’ drive out from the town area towards very ‘kampung side’ Seri Muara Alai Nasir Ikan Bakar and turn into a small lane with sandy rockies road with paddy field at one side to reach this place. We were advice to start the journey early as it is easily filled up very fast. We reach here at 6pm, so the whole place still pretty empty.

This place is located at Alai and by the eatery place name of HJ Nasir Ikan Bakar (Grill Fish).

haji nasir (3)

Now I understand why they said the seafood here is very fresh, some of the fisherman come back from the straights of Melacca, which is not too far from here and he get all the first hand fresh seafood first.

haji nasir (5)

In a hot weather like this, it is always best to sit outside for more cool wind.

haji nasir (2)

When we move over to this mini stall to order our food, we were spoil with choices, with so many types of fish and seafood available.

Then grill fresh on the pit area. . .

All off us were pretty full from some other food hunt earlier, and make it 2nd last stop before heading back to KL.

haji nasir (7)

Small pack of Nasi Lemak was served which is optional, and decided to give it a try, and it was a let down. The rice was damp, not much fragrant and the sambal look very spicy which is not really.

Fried Squid were really good, fresh squid which is very chewy and the amount of crispiness on the layer of it, just nice and dip it with chili sauce is perfect. We order another round of it.

haji nasir (11)

Spicy Fried Stingray, well prepared with crispy edge on its tail and the meat in the middle is still very soft, and spread with their own homemade sambal on top just right.

They just cant wait ..  too hungry again . . as we have seperate the right table are all small eaters including me, and on the left are all heavy weight champion eater.

BBQ Prawns

Grill Kembung Fish with sambal.

Cannot deny that the price here is cheap as we paid around RM 20 per pax after divided out and all of this are in 2 portion and the seafood is fresh. Taste wise, nothing to shout about, yet if like kampung style dining, this would be a place to go after.

If you miss home cook food, The Strand Kota Damansara do have one home cook food is pretty good which I had blog before (click here). Now, with their dishes getting popular and with quality of food that they cook are without MSG has extended their menu for more choices. Mum’s Seafood Noodle

Mums (1)

Mum’s Seafood Noodle @ RM 13.80, RM18.80 for special

Imagine the taste of the soup when it is cook with abalone slices, fish fillet, squids, prawns, bamboo clams & 珍珠鲍贝, the taste of the soup is definately sweet and aromatic with the KL version, a bit milky. I always prefer my noodle with bee hoon.

Mums (3)

Bean Paste Steamed Garoupa @ Market Price

Mums (2)

For a person who love steam fish, then you would want to order this special black bean sauce that had been slightly modified by them. It is perfectly to go along with rice, with a bit sweet sour taste and the best is they added some pork lard onto the sauce that makes it very aromatic.

Mums (6)

Stuffed Squid @ RM 18.80  stuff with solid minced prawns & pork braised in premium soy sauce been cook perfectly that makes it skin a bit chewy and the ingredient in it is soft.

Mums (7)

Pork lover like me, would not miss their ‘Lor Bak’, they do not use mince pork but use strips of it to be added into and wrap it finely, so that after fried, the skin could attach onto the meat also marinate with 5 spices  herbs.  RM 9.80

Mums (8)

One of my favourite dish for the night is ‘Salted Egg Yolk Fish Head’ that had been fried perfectly crispy then cook along with salted egg, coated all over the skin makes it a bit salty, crispy and I could just finish this by myself.              RM 16.80

Mums (9)

When go for fried or home cook food, it will never be complete for me without ordering any curry. ‘Curry Fish Head’, mild curry that is just right to go along with rice. I banjir my rice with this curry.

Mums (10)

I never really like petai, but this dish ‘Petai Prawns‘ cook along with big juicy prawns, onions and petai, as they have tone down the taste of petai which is not that strong. This dish was gone in 30seconds. Some of them also don even manage to taste but just get to smell. RM 15.80

Mums (11)

‘Jiuhu Char’ is one of the dish that must order. Cook till its a bit juicy and crispy with bangkuang, to eat it, can either eat it just like that or the best is to wrap it with lettuce add some sambal on top to add in the extra kick. RM 10.80

Mums (12)

Nyonya Chicken are cook by using kampung chicken, therefore the taste of it is more nice that cook along with some spices that comes out with thick in gravy coated on the chicken. RM 16.80

Mums (13)

Asam Fish @ Market Price, sour and spicy gravy with soft fish meat is something to look forward to make it more appetizing.

Mums (14)

Acar that taste sour and spicy.

Mums (15)

Fried Roasted Pork, first bite you will find it delicious, 2nd bite eat it raw like that you will start to find it salty, as this dish are meant to eat along with rice.

It was another satisfying meal at Mum’s Seafood.

My favorite hang out area, Alexis at Bangsar especially craving for the Tiramisu cake combine with the Mocha there is the best combo. Like this place a lot especially is not too big, just nice, not so much crowd and pretty cozy area to go for my fav desert but for that day, not really hungry so kidnap my friend along to accompany me to eat.

Like this wine rack which I always think will I ever drink that much of wine?

As I am quite hungry so the first item to be order is of course ‘Clam Chowder’ which cost RM16. The soup is thick and creamy, shower with quite a lot of clams and the taste is just so good and the piece of garlic bread makes it a perfect combination.
Saw the table besides us order ‘Garlic Bread’ charge at RM8 which smells very nice and rich in garlic aroma, I also order one lah~ But I tell you, the garlic bread is toast to crispiness on the side and soft in the middle, the garlic spread on top of it and the first bite on it will make you finish the whole plate~


My usual that I would rarely miss to any kind of restaurant when look at Spaghetti section is of course the Carbonara. The order of ‘Spegitti Carbonara’ cost RM 32 . With the price on this plate of carbonara I honestly think its quite expensive with the bacon serve some mushroom and spaghetti. Not the type of carbonara I crave for. This is not very creamy and its near to dry, yet of course do not want to waste the food so finish the whole plate la.

Last but not least, the only thing that must not miss of course their ‘Tiramisu’. The outer layer is filled with crunchy nuts and when comes to the inside, its so soft when you eat it, it melts inside on your tongue. The taste of the cheese, the coffee on the cake and some of the chocolate taste just poison you that make you enjoy every single bite of it. The strawberry syrup is just for the added taste. If you like it you will or you will just ignore it. Highly recommended – RM15

It was our buddy B’day Gay Keong and CB Kenny. They came down to KL to celebrate with the rest of us for lunch, dinner and club 2 weeks ago. So for the lunch it was arrange by my bestie Yeong Yong to head here because of the prank they can put on both of them.
For their lunch they have of course the 2 course meal promotion for RM29.90 which had been going on for quite sometime already which we think the food is not bad so going back for lunchie~ Where you get to choose one dish from the Appetizers and 1 dish from the Entree.

We combine up our order and share share, so the first appetizers is ‘Boneless Wings’ dip with their very own traditional spicy Buffalo sauce. When it was serve, we do not really have the urge to eat because it looks it had been left aside in the kitchen for quite sometime and the looks of it very soggy. It was not spicy and a bit too sour but it dip with the sour cream taste so so onli.

This is always our high time favourite if we do visit here. ‘Fried Mac and Cheese’ creamy cheeses and elbow noodles golden-fried to perfection.

The taste for that day was pretty disappointing. It was well fried but inside, the cheeze was friend nearly dry and the elbow noodle was totally dry where you put into microwave to reheat your food where usually we it, when we cut it, its pretty cheesie and flowing down to the plate~
Next is the ‘Clam Chowder’. Which is find its the best compare to the other 2 as it is hearthy, creamy blend of celery, garlic scallion and potato lightly seasoned with pepper and rich with clams.
The soup is creamy and the ingredient in there is blend of celery, garlic scallion and potato lightly seasoned with pepper and a bit of clamp. But overall, it goes pretty well with the taste. We were very happy of this appetizer. The rest.. *shake head.

After our disappointing appetizer and cross finger to get a better 1 for entree. The first dish is ‘Sizzling Chicken and Cheese’. It was very appealing at first but the taste of it was not as expected to what is on the description and the thing is, the portion is seriously small. In this pic might look big because its taken near. If you take the piece of chicken breast and compare it with my stomach its like onli 1/4 of it. The mash potato is a bit tasteless, onion was not deeply fried, the chicken breast is overcook. Hopeless dish again!

Next was ‘Cajun Shrimp & Chicken Pasta’. One of the okay dish of it as just ngam ngam creamy, after you stir it the sauce is gone, it got ‘serap‘ into the fettuccine. Theeere are a few pieces of chicken cubes and shrimps. Nothing much to comment on.

Follow by the ‘Jack Daniel ‘s Chicken’. Haiyoooo, tis is by far the best of all, the chicken breast is grill just perfect, a bit golden brown, the breast is soft wont be so meaty and the sauce that pour on top of it, is just so good that every 1 of us have not enough and thought of ordering another 1.

The next dish that serve is ‘Fettuccine with Chicken’. It was abit dry but the taste normal. The chicken stripes were quite generous and okay lah…don know what to say.

The last of the entree would be the ‘Club Sandwich’ if not mistaken. This is one of the best dish of the day. The bread is toast to perfection till the crust and outer layer of the bread is crispy. The bread in the middle is soft. They were never cheapskate on putting in the ingredient, the breast meat is alot, some bacons, mayo, cheese and other’s with the sauce all added up, can just saviour it instantly.
After eating session, I was fast fast told to arrange to deal with the manager there to give them a surprise. After they were clearing the table plates away then a few minutes after that, suddenly a group of ppl sweep across by their table and surround them. They were told to stand on the chair and to introduce themselves to every 1 of us…They si pek sporting, directly jump onto the chair…So let me intro for you, this 2 are our Birdie Brithdayyyyyy Boi~ Gay Kiong(in white) and Chan Tou Nam Kenny.
Then comes the supervisor to brief them…’Lai lai, now u guys have to use this salt and paper bottle to treat this at the mic. Then you have to either, share or sing to all of us. Ah Keong was like, an chua.. let me go first laaaa, you better say later la..si lang Kenny.!!’
So there goes gay keong(actually his nickname we gave him) talk talk talk and bla bla….

Then Chan Tou Nam…*fast forward mode …..talk talk talk and bla bla.. After talk talk talk and the best part of all, the second part, DANCING!~!~!~!~
Then here comes the gay Keong performing, as we told Chan Tou Nam better not, cus you are too fat, later you broke the chair we have to pay. So he is the pole and Keong, perform his best…
Making the crowd go while. All of us was like going crazy..with gayness keong swaying so sexy..
lol~
Then the manager told them, not yet finish…..In order to get this complimentary cakes, you guys have to do 1 task. You guys have to blow the candle from the distance we placed.
After announce, Keong was like ‘Oh SHIT!!..How to blow? Kenny no eyes see…
We were all like, blow la blow la..got free cake eat..at the same time pity them also, have to blow till their face ‘bin che che‘(hokkien) – face green green~
So before all the blowing get’s going, so they Birthday song singing….
Follow by our very birthday wish tradition. We at the bottom there helping them say Keong – I want to be Sushi King and please give me more idea of how to be more gay if needed. Chan Tou Nam – how i want to grow my stomach, don want to be Chan Tou Nam, want to be Santa Clause.
After that, cheng cheng cheng…please welcome our very first participant to blow the candle. Chan Tou Name.
First attempt, sucking all of the air in and trying it for 1 blow…no effect….if for me, I’ll faint.
2nd attempt, better, the light of the candle moving abit..!! We were like cheering down there. Chan Tou Nam!! Chan Tou Nam!! Chan Tou Nam!! with our fork and knife.. 3rd attempt he manage to blow it.
Keong is more daring. Like monkey directly climb accross nearby and blow it in 2 attempt.
This is what we manage to get, a complimentary cakes by TGI for Birday Guy/Gal. If you were to celebrate your birthday there, please do not ….I mean please do not miss this piece of cake. It is so addictive that from your first bite melting in your mouth with the chocolate, the ice cream, the cakes in it just bring you the satisfaction. The best of all!!! Don know what is the name called but its highly recommended.
With Yeong and Siew Li sitting another table and scolding us that. STOP TEMPTING US!!!!! We are trying to be on diet. In the end they also cannot tahan and join to eat..wakakkaka~~~~
The food for the day, can say like 75% disappointed with the quality that they serve. Can just say that, it was the worst of the time on so many occasions. We think that the chef had PMS!

I have always been a big fan of curry noodle, especially the one in Penang. Then my friends know that I love it so they tag me along to this restaurant. They were saying how good it was but it caught me by surprise that when I reach the shop it was empty and was around 3pm. As far as I know, always a famous shop no matter what time there are still ppl dine in but maybe we were like VIP’s that is why during the weekend around that time we were the only customer they have.
When I saw the menu, I got shock myself to see on the pricing. Then my friend told me its worth it 1. Then I proceed to order Curry Mee and my friend cancel my order and order for me Tomyam mix with Curry. I was like harrr…can eat boh? later eat then lau sai how? Then she said, eat first then only tell me. hmmm..so confident on it so just go along lah~

The first bowl came was the Tomyam Seafood Noodle’ I was like hmmm…not bad not bad..so many seafood in there. The taste of tomyam is good, it is thick and fill with the seafood sweet taste that had been cook for 3 hours. The soup colour is so red that you will thought it is damm spicy but it is not. Just nice, not too spicy but perfectly just nice.

Then here comes my order ‘Seafood Mee mix with Curry and Tomyam Soup‘. I must say that, this taste much better compare to the original Tomyam Flavour. The mixture of the soup had made the taste sweeter and can taste the mix of the curry and tomyam. No wonder my friend she is so confident that I will like it. Definitely a good recommendation.

By conquering the 2 n half of the main signature, here comes the last order ‘Seafood Noodle Soup’. For those people who do not like spicy food, this is truly a highly recommeded meal to introduce. The clear soup is rich with the taste of the seafood, the soup base is sweet with you can taste the taste of the prawn, clams by just only the soup.
Although for the first time I saw the price, my eyes pop out but after finish eating, I was satisfied and with the price it is reasonable with the whole bowl filled with squids, clams, mussels, fish slices and prawns. Would return to dine again~ The price rangers from RM15-RM17
