Seafood for Mother's Day celebrations ....

Well, I mentioned my family delayed the Mother's Day celebrations by a week in my previous post. And, finally, we had a good time savouring some good seafood by the beach while celebrating the event. There were two mothers here, my SIL and my wifey and I am one lucky chap who got to enjoy a nice dinner where my nephew and his wife brought and bought us the dinner.

We intend to return to Todak Restaurant but it was a rainy day where they closed half of the restaurant which is an open area. Thus, there were not enough tables around for the waiting crowd and we decided to go next door, instead of fighting for seats with others. We went to TKK restaurant which is also by the beach but I did not take pictures of the surroundings as it was dark already. This restaurant is less crowded but we needed to wait quite a while for the food to be served.

The food were actually delicious except for one....

Steamed fish ... I can't remember the name of this type of fish but it sure tasted good. The meat was very fresh, tender and smooth. My kids love it!!

Freshly steamed prawns - Since we are having fresh prawns,my SIL suggest to steam it instead. Yes, that's a good idea as the prawns were very fresh and I enjoyed this dish very much! 

Another favourite dish - the lala ... but there seems more shells than meat...hahaha...  My kid loves it! It's very nice with the ginger flavour everywhere and it's hot!

Ah ... at last and I am yearning for it - Salted egg crabs. The crab was quite big we only ordered one , which is a good idea as we cannot finished all. It's been a long while since I had crabs as my wifey is health conscious and I gotta wait for occasions like this to eat it. However, though the crab has lots of meat, somehow the gravy didn't cover the meat so much. It didn't taste as good, though fresh. The meat was missing the fragrance of the salted egg gravy.  Nevertheless, I ate a lot! :D
Anyway, it was a good meal before I headed back to SG for another work week.
TKK restaurant is located at - : Lot 648, Kampung Teluk Jawa, Masai, 81750, Johor Bharu, Johor, Malaysia

  9. The crab looks so dry, they didn't put enough sauce. I don't really enjoy eating lala because the flesh is so little and I end up with a bog pile of shells.
