SEAFOOD @ TECK SENG, PENDING SEAFOOD CENTRE, KUCHING

½ a Kampung Chicken Herbal Soup

The Pending seafood hub used to be popular once upon a time. For some reason a couple of newer eateries on the opposite end, where you can buy fresh seafood during the day, seem to getting all the crowd nowadays. It has the Sarawak River beside it that leads to Santubong. We used this route by a twin-engine long boat to Damai Beach before there was a road.

Steamed Shrimps With Chinese Wine & Egg

This particular stall has the exclusivity of being in a secluded section on its own. It's a Lau Cheo Bai (old label) so there's a sedimentary attachment to this place. It's been a while since we were here last. Menu hasn't changed a bit... still the same old, same old. By the time we finished the dinner, it dawned on us why we seldom come here... its price! But we'll be back here someday, somehow...

Fried Bamboo Clams With Ginger & Onions

At most of the Zi-Char, there seem to be some sort of steamed kampung chicken soup; that's the thing that's cooked before hand, so they tend to be pushy on disposing the item. And we, being the suckers that we are, fell for it every time. The other item that was being parlayed was the sea chicken. Like the name says, it tasted like chicken in texture; it's not worth a second attempt once it's passed its curiosity stage. It's other dishes are considered fodders by any standard.

Steamed "Sea Chicken" Fish

You know, like some eateries they hand out a pot of tea whether you order it or not, especially at Chinese BBQ shop, and charge you for it; they say it's Tipsy for the workers; others give you peanuts or other munchies.... well, this place serves sambal chilli with cucumber (was there pineapple too?); it's a refreshing appetizer before the food arrives.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
