Claypot Assam Fish Fillet
Second visit to Yam Yam Seafood Restaurant in Ipoh Garden South, (for my virginal take, click HERE). Forgot what the event was, probably a routine family dinner back in April or May.
Of course, my poor memory fails me whenever I’m trying to recall the taste, name of the dish, and the price for each. Especially with no receipt, or notes jotted. So, pardon me?
The squids and grouper fish slices in assam gravy stole the limelight that evening, as expected, for they are after all, a SEAFOOD restaurant. The steamed squids in particular, got my vote, as I usually go for fried squids, or sambal sotong, rarely opt for the steamed variety. But the piquant taste, slightly tangy from the drizzles of lime juice, paired with the bird’s eye chillis and garlic, accentuate the freshness and the springy texture of the squids. One word : YAMmy!!
The other dishes fared well, but the Tung Po Yuk did not impress. The cuts were fat no doubt, though enough lean portion to satiate a diet freak, but the gravy was not flavourful, compared to some others in Chinese restaurants.
Overall, a pretty satisfying meal, but a bone to pick here was that the lady owner in his 50’s (I assumed) is a bit arrogant. Let’s just say, her mistake resulted in us consuming not one, not two but THREE green vegetable dishes. But of course, we un-willingly paid for them, though not one word of apology escaped from her mouth. Hmmm …… Total damage came to around RM90 for 6 of us.
Location : Refer old post HERE.
Til then, wish me LUCK, and pray that we manage to locate the forsaken place, possibly not detectable with GPS, nor even exist in the maps …. But really, I may be slightly dramatic here, now hands up who have heard of Changkat Lada? Au revoir.
