Jolin Tsai concert (PART 1) - Restaurant Seafood Yoong Kie, Goh Tong Jaya

It was my 3rd visit to Restaurant Seafood Yoong Kie. I would say this place serves the BEST bullfrog dish EVER!

So 2 thumbs up to the chef that "whooped" up such a marvelous dinner.

(This IS NOT the chef, but for illustration purposes only)

I only stumbled upon Yoong Kie by luck amongst the other 15 seafood restaurants on a one-way street in Goh Tong Jaya.

I have not tried the others because Yoong Kie always make me come back for more. The friendly staffs and generous portion of serving is well worth every trip.

We were recommended to try to the "Kiung Chung San G" or wild boar meat fried with ginger and spring onions.

We were expecting the meat to be like chewing gum but turned out the meat was tenderly rough (got such a word ah?) and tasty!

(Wild boar meat ... just imagine eating "kampong chicken's meat")

Next, "Kiung Yeung Tin Kai" or Bullfrog cooked in ginger (yeah ... lotsa ginger).

The bullfrog's meat is soooooo ... soooo .... yummy and fresh! The meat is like fish meat - soft and succulent, not to mention the meat is HUGE!

(Steaming hot oversized bullfrog thigh meat)

Last but not least, the must have "greens".

The bill came to RM 67.00 for 2 pax. It is really worth the trip to dine with the cool breezy weather in Goh Tong Jaya. Stay tuned for Jolin Tsai concert (PART 2) as I review a below-expectation concert by a hot chick from Taiwan.

Dear All............ FROM MY FRIENDS!

Last week, I brought my guests to Genting Highlands. After a day 'above the clouds', we decided to have dinner at the
Gohtong Jaya area on the way down.

We ordered some dishes and decided to have a steamed fish as well. So the captain recommended 'sultan fish'.
The steamed fish came. HALF, and plain steamed. Good & fine.

But when the bill came, it came to over $500 !! We were shocked !! We were told the fish was 1.4kg ( & please bear in mind, its ONLY HALF A FISH ) at RM 320 per kg! RM 420!! This was daylight robbery. We were not informed by the Captain that a kg of the Sultan fish would cost us RM 320 and there was also no signs of such pricings anywhere in the restaurant.

When we checked with the cashier, she told us, its correct !!

Of cos, it was our mistake for not asking the price first.

Anyway, on the way back to KL, we stopped at Unique Seafood,PJ, where one can choose a live fish. The most expensive Soon Hock swimming in the tank is RM135 per kilo. Asked them about the Sultan fish, it is going for RM100 a kilo.

Will be sending this letter to the newspapers, Tourism board, etc etc; and friends, pls pass on to all on yr email list.

Daylightrobert, I feel cheated for your friends' experience at Gohtong Jaya. Advise your friends to try out the Boatman Restaurant at Batu Ferringhi, Penang for value-for-money dishes and fresh+cheaper fish.
