379. Seafood For Dinner

Remember Mak isah told you I will be having dinner with my 2 daughters last Friday? This post is about it, and much to Mak isah joy, hubby decided to join us for dinner too :)

So...there were 4 of us! And well I must say it was an evening of eating seafood, seafood only! I know most of you will say 'watch that cholesterol level'....but...just for this time okay?

Mak isah just lovessss... seafood! and the theme for dinner that evening was 'Eastern meets Westerns'. On one side there was Eastern food for example like 'Laksa Sarawak', 'Fried Noodles', 'Rice' & a lot of Eastern dishes and on the other side, especially near the poolside there was Western food like 'Grilled Lamb' & Grilled seafoods!


As always whenever having dinner, Mak isah started off with a plate of local fruits.


And at that dinner Mak isah went for the 'Grilled Lamb' & 'Grilled Chicken Wings'




And...

all the grilled seafood! Like...

Tiger Prawns


Lobsters



Just Prawns


Mussels


I ate all those grilled food with Black Pepper Sauce. Very nice.


Ahhh...for the first time Mak isah ate Osysters! Mentah lagi tu..! Have you ever tried it? I have, and they were delicious if taken the correct way...which means sprinkle some chopped garlic & ginger over it, sprinkle a dash of light soy sauce, place one small slice of cili padi (if you want it hot) and squeezed some lemon juice over it.

Take one in your left hand and with a fork take out the flesh of the osyster and place it in your mouth. Chew!


I enjoyed them and I lost count how many I ate LOL....


See the flesh? :)



Habis!! Mesti you all kata Mak isah kuat makan ha ha....err memang pun! :p



I also tried this 'Kerabu Glass Noodles'. Very nice. And very very hot! I think they add grounded cili padi in it.



Sliced Squid & Prawn dipped in flour and fried



During that dinner I broke my own rules, took 'Nescafe' instead of 'Tea' :p Too tempting!



Nescafe with these delicious butter biscuits, buns and butter! Yummy




Aya tried these cakes, Mak isah tak larat lagi :)








For the memory...

My 3rd daughter Aya & My youngest daughter Noormy



Hubby & Mak isah



The Melinau Terrace have just undergone a little renovation & re arrangement so the staff and management were anxious to know our feedback on the food and place.

Almost end of the dinner time, they gave our table some feedback forms to fill, which we were only too happy to oblige.

Puan Isah said...

It was, Eugene :) I cannot resist seafood. That night I left the eastern cuisines and just concentrate on those grillied seafood!

A'ah I never knew those oysters were so delicious, my first time and had been meaning to come to this hotel since they introduce the new menu in.

Oh yes, tobasco sauce was available that night but eating the osyters in the way I had mentioned was even more nice!

Like you said,'heavenly' plus with my adorable family around me :)

A very good day to you!

Puan Isah said...
