I am too busy to blog for now, so jammed up with finals and presentations") So i decided to take my cousins post")hehe.... so yea here's the post")") Some sort of business my dad ventured in lately")
Okay, I have tonnes to post about, so expect more food stuffs coming this way real fast! Heh! For now, I will be posting the latest ones and slowly work my way back. Hopefully I can get all these out quick enough! *crosses fingers* This time around, I went to my uncle's newly opened restaurant in Seremban! It's called "The Gift Tilapia Restaurant" which specializes in - you guessed it right - Tilapia dishes!
The premise of the restaurant. Very simple set up, but don't judge a book by its cover just yet! *wink* The restaurant's address:
No. 11, Lorong Merbok 6/1
Taman Bunga Blossom
The menu...very simple dishes as of now, but there will be more to come! For now, let me show you what we had:
Vegetables...standard fare, blanched lettuce with oyster sauce and a little bit of oil. Simple yet yummy!
Stir fried bean sprouts...also another simple dish.
Then comes the highlight of the day! Yummy fish! Remember the green tilapia that I mentioned in this post? Well, this fish is the main attraction in the restaurant! This is the Portugese grilled fish...a whole fish grilled but still tender and spread with a yummy 'secret recipe' chilli paste that will have you adding more and more rice! The dish is topped with fresh lady's fingers.(a MUST in this dish! The chillies go very well with the lady's finger!)
Not to toot my uncle's horn and stuff, but the fish is just finger-licking good! Not only is it fresh, but the meat just falls away from the bone when you take it up (it's THAT tender!) and when you put it in the mouth, it melts away like pudding...yummmmm! Plus, you don't get that earthy taste that we normally get with the Tilapia here, so it's a win-win situation! *grins*
Another variation of the grilled fish...this is a simple, soya sauce version. Topped with sliced ginger and spring onions it's perfect for those who are not fond of spicy food. You can just taste the 'sweetness' of the fish meat in this dish because the sauce brings that out. If the fish is not fresh, you'll never be able to taste that!
Last but not least, we had the salted prawns! My uncle raises prawns in his aquaculture farm too, so these prawns are guaranteed fresh! Seasoned with a generous helping of salt, the prawns are wrapped in an aluminum foil packet and subsequently grilled. When it's done, the packet is ripped open and you get THIS! You'd have to remove the salt of course, since it's just a seasoning, but the prawns are SOOOOO good! Simple concept as it is, you can't beat fresh food cooked the proper way...*grins*
So, if you're ever in the neighborhood, drop by The Gift Tilapia Restaurant! You'll never think the same about tilapia dishes again! *wink*
