It is a haven for seafood lovers in Sabah. The fresh catches are attractive to the eyes as well as to the tummies.
We got recommendation and good review to have our dinner on our first night in this restaurant.
Welcome Place (Asia City) at Jalan Asia City is one of the few seafood restaurants that serve good and fresh seafood and enjoying good business from locals and tourists alike.
There were over 20 of us (hubby and his colleagues) so 2 tables for us. Hubby was in charge of the ordering so we left the surprise element to him.
First to come was this stir-fried prawns with garlic and salt. Super fresh and sweet.
The other half kg was to be steamed, which was equally nice and irresistible.
We had stir fried sweet potato with garlic.
The sweet and sour toufu with fish maw soup was nothing to shout about. I wasn't crazy about this soup since I had other dishes to wow me.
This was what I have been waiting to taste in KK. Its freshwater snail (tong fung lo) with fermented beancurd dipping. Slurp!! The last time I had this was in Sibu, few years ago.
They served their crabs deep fried with salt which was equally nice but hardly much flesh.
While I hardly touched the crabs, I ate a lot of this steamed grouper. It was so sweet, nice and flesh. I love to eat fish!!
The grilled squid wasn't a disappointment as everyone finished it in a quick time.
Next we had the lala with special sauce and surprisingly they already took out the lala from the shells and cooked and pour all over the empty shells. Presentation purpose I think.
The stir fried beef with onion was the last 2 dishes with their signature deep fried beancurd (which I did not take photo of). I took a bite of each as I was too full by then.
Overall it cost us over RM600 per table inclusive of drinks. While the others had their next agenda (a visit to the pasar malam), hubby sent us home in grabcar before he joined his staff for few drinks.
It has been a tiring day as we woke up as early as 4am to catch the plane. I don't know about the kids, I was exhausted and slept around 9pm that night!!
