Spy Malaysia Travel Review
For my last night in Selangor I followed yet another hot dining tip that led me to the South Sea Seafood Restaurant next to the airport runway in Subang Jaya.
This is a large semi al-fresco restaurant and it was obvious from the large number of customers this is a very popular restaurant.
The environment and ambience was very conducive for an excellent dining experience and I had a good feeling I was in for a culinary treat to finish my whirlwind Selangor trip on a gastronomic high.

Seafood Tom Yam Soup - RM22.00

Mixed Vegetables - RM16.00
Crab In Butter Sauce - RM82.00
Grouper Fish In Siamese Sauce - RM93.00

We got off to a great start with a tasty Tom Yam soup that was brimming with seafood and did a good job of whetting our appetites for the seafood feast that was to follow.
The arrival of the Barbecue Squid ratcheted our dining experience up another notch with one of the best barbecued fish dishes I have experienced.
The barbecue sauce chosen to accompany this squid suited both the texture and the taste perfectly and all four of us were beaming from ear to ear in culinary delight at this taste sensation.
Our waitress recommended the Siamese sauce with the Grouper and I have been so spoiled this week with fantastic fish dishes I thought this is going to be the pièce de résistance of my gourmet experience in sunny Selangor.
How wrong I was. First and foremost I must point out that this was a very very good example of a Grouper in a sweet and tasty coconut sauce. It is just that I have tasted much better this week alone and at a fraction of the price.
Maybe it was inevitable I was setting myself up for a fall by expecting so much but this was probably the nicest environment I have dined in all week and I kind of thought the quality of the food would be its equal.
Moving on to the rice dishes the Chinese Fried Rice proved to be the best of the three as the rice had a nice consistency together with a lot of added ingredients to add to the taste sensation including some fried chicken and salty fish.
The Indonesian Fried Rice was interesting as it had the addition of garlic combined with shaved coconut and thin crab sticks all fried without oil before being added to the top of the rice.
The Crab In Butter Sauce followed next and again this failed to live up to my high expectations. Whereby the Grouper sauce did taste very good the same cannot be said about this butter sauce.
In fact it did the opposite and I found that the sauce was competing against the crab to become the dominant taste for this dish.
The South Sea Seafood Restaurant has one of the most extensive fresh fish menus around due to the vast array of fish tanks located on the premises.
The atmospheric dining environment in the South Sea Seafood Restaurant in Subang creates a fish feast setting fit for a pelagic gourmet waiting to dine on the best the open ocean can offer.

The squid were all of a uniform size and flawlessly cooked to a tender state where minimal chewing was required before digestion.

It didn't add too much to the taste sensation but it did give a very interested texture when chewing the rice.

The butter sauce was way too creamy and rich to have a complimentary effect on the taste of the Crab.
I would be interested to taste the same meal with a toned down version of this butter sauce that uses subtlely to enhance the taste of the crab rather than overshadow it.
