Grilled Seafood

Browsing

A new outlet that had just pop out in the neigbourhood of Damansara Kim. Tug in a quiet area but it had start to gain its fame thru online platform. We got to know that KomPassion one of a NON-Halal Thai food, then it makes us even more eager to try it out. Then decided to head to that outlet and do menu attack again..

I love the interior of the outlet which is creatively set up, that is very simple yet look elegant, with zink atap roof, wooden platform chairs on the side with pillows and lights below  . .

 Water paip s as the support frame of the lap. .

kompassion (4)

A group of us sitting there quietly browsing on the menu, then got slightly excited as they offer quite a range of food to choose from and many new items or signature to hunt for. Price are slightly more expensive . .

As usual, when we go in a group of food bloggers without any invites, the usual still we will be equip with our gear – lights and camera. As the food came, every one in the restaurant were very curious on what we are doing. Then only the owners drop by our table to introduce themselves as Desmond Wong and Tan Huat Jin (who are brothers-in-law). Even better to know that both of them actually  teamed up with Chef Nikom Uatthong to set up this restaurant.

How the name Kompassion came up is they know the chef have alot of passion in cooking hence by using his last 3 character of his name and combine with this and that is how the name being created.

We started off with starter. KomPassion Chicken Wings @ RM17.90 A very simple dish that well marinated with spices and I was saying, if order a beer would have been perfect.

kompassion (7)

Stir Fried Kai Lan @ RM15

kompassion (8)

 First pork dish and we are all excited, as The Paneang Curry Pork Loin came first..

kompassion (9)

A bit dissapointed on the other end as for the price of RM 35 its a rather small portion. Curry is thick with a hint of basil taste after that. Its not bad to go along with rice.

kompassion (11)

If you prefer something light and more soupy gravy, Green Curry Crispy Pork is the one that you should go after. Filled with basil leave taste, slightly creamy curry gravy and the pork cook along can still taste the crisp of the [email protected] RM35

kompassion (10)

Tom Yum Fried Rice with Grilled SeafoodRM18.90 , is cook in a healthy way with multi-grain brown rice is used and the serving came with grilled squid rings, a medium-sized prawn, crabsticks and salmon fillet. At the price I find this is very reasonable and rice being fried to fragrant and the sauce pairs very well, with seafood is fresh.

kompassion (15)

If you travel to Thai often, then many of us would not miss pork leg rice, as its the same in Kompassion Pork Leg Rice, when we saw this in the menu, its a must order. Pork meat is soft and juicy with gravy and the chili sauce that pair along is mild spicy and sourish end taste.  @ RM25.90

kompassion (13)

One of my favorite which is under KomPassion Special, we ordered the Double Cooked Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crabs with Cucumber Salad @ RM65. The pork skin is awesome, that its crispy on every bite and the meat is tender. Unami sauce that shower into it that makes the taste even better. Soft Shell crab on the other end fried to perfection till crisp and top with ebiko to make it even more bitefull feeling. – Recommended!

kompassion (14)

Tom Yum Fish @ RM45 with a spicy level of 2 (choose from 1-3, 3 being the spiciest). For those who cant really like spicy then would advise to go for level one. As the spiciness doesnt kicks in immediately, will suddenly shot up and I down a glass of water instantly. Its challenging yet I would not mind to go for level 3. 😀 Fish slices that cook along is soft and fresh. – recommended!

kompassion (16)

Tako @ RM10 is one of the signature in the outlet as its better for you to pre-order first when you are ordering your meal. Smooth coconut milk texture on the top and pandan base makes it hard to resist and and Ice Cream with Jackfruit and Red Ruby @ RM10, I find it pretty average..

Cheese cake are complimentary for us to try (bottom left)

In the end our bill came into RM 382.50 for 6 pax. Slightly more expensive than normal dining restaurant but its pretty satisfying with the offering in the restaurant. Surely will come back again as there are a few dishes that I am looking to back for.

Remark: do note that this is a Fusion Thai restaurant as the taste might not be at your expectation as the taste had been tweak.

If you are looking for some nice Thai food, surely this would be my another recommended restaurant.

One of the place that my colleague really fond of when comes to lunch time, this place had attracted them to drive all the way from Bukit Jalil to somewhere behind Istana Negera, Jalan Bellamy to hunt for this Ikan Bakar (Grill Fish) stall around the area. I used to think, what is so good about this place as they always mention Ikan Bakar ya for lunch, till I tag along.

ikan bakar (1)

In the area, it is very obvious that there is a stretch of Ikan Bakar stall with only one of it is extremely busy compare to the others. The trick is, arriving early to get a parking space as the area are quite small and its limited parking available, also long queue in the line for food and finding tables.

ikan bakar (2)

I am suprise to see the huge frying pan filled with alot of seafood being grilled and consistant grilling till after lunch, with common grilled seafood are, sotong (squids), udang (prawns), ikan (fish), and many other types more. Most of the seafood are huge in size.

ikan bakar (3)

Then there is a tray located next to the grilled pan and from there, is where you start hunting for your favourite seafood to be place on your plate.

ikan bakar (4)

The things that you must not miss out when eating ikan bakar is their special sauce ingredients, as most of the stalls have different taste and types of chili to be added onto the seafood as condiments for this stalls is called ‘cicah kicap’ that I usually added it on with fish to add on some extra kick to it, filled with lime taste, and a bit sweet in sauce. Next is the ‘spicy sambal’ that my colleague whack it like nobody’s business as if like not spicy. One simple dip on it, makes my tears instanly flow out and sweat oozing out. It is very spicy, do try it out if you love the challenge under this hot weather.

ikan bakar (5)

One of my favourite seafood ‘Ikan Pari’ (sting ray) as I like it with the meat is easily peel off and dip with both the condiments. Just do note that the bigger the fish is, the meat are harder, I usually prefer mine in a smaller piece which is nicely grilled with the banana leave wraping over it to create the extra aroma.

ikan bakar (6)

Then I tried ‘Siakap’ (if not mistaken) as I prefer this the most. Grilled till very aromatic with a bit burn on the skin and the meat is very soft.

ikan bakar (7)

Sotong (Squid)

ikan bakar (8)

One of the food I was told by the Makcik to try on it is this homemade ‘Tapai’, a type of traditional fermented food origins from East and SouthEast Asia which is made of cassava and rice or glutinious rice. I usually do not like the taste of it, but for this homemade version, I find the taste quite okay, with the fermented taste is mild and the rice is soft. I finish one of it by myself.

ikan bakar (9)

If you feel that you do not like what offer on the pan grill then there is a Nasi Melayu behind the stall which offer alot of food on the tray for you to choose. By the time I left was around 1pm and the place is crazy, with all the lunch crowd pouring in and the traffic had worsen.

Overall, the food is okay, once a while to dine here is pretty alright as the price is a little pricy compare to the location of it. . .
