DINNER @ ESPLANADE SEAFOOD CAFÉ & RESTAURANT, TEMPLE ST., SIBU

Fried Hokkien Noodle

It is my last night in town, having dinner at the Esplanade Seafood at its new location. Business is not as brisk as it used to be due to its locality. Those super-fung-shui type will attribute it being next to the Tua-Pek Kong Temple. Whatever it is, there is nothing to fault the food; it tastes as great as it used to.

Claypot Tofu

Da-Xia (guest relations) runs off the variety of mushrooms they have for the night: something-ko (mushroom) this, something-ko that. To make things easy, we had a combo of all the mushrooms; thus the Ko-Ko-Ko below!

Ko-Ko-Ko (Fried Multiple Mushroom)

Holy Bats!

This is one of those exotic game they have in store... bats fried with soy sauce, chilli and lemongrass. It won't make a night vigilante out of you to roam Gotham, and I'm not sure of the vitality of its other properties. It's a whole different taste and texture.

Deep-Fried Tau-Cheo Toman Fish

This fish is nice to the crunch, while richly bathed in the sea of fermented yellow beans. Yums!

Fried Bitter Gourd With Salted Egg

The amount of food we had seems excessive... in fact there are extras for the latecomers arriving at 8:30 p.m. One brings along fresh Midin she has picked out while jogging in the park that afternoon. A beehoon dish comes out of it. And lastly the tiger fish caps off the evening.

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!
