Midin With Red Wine (RM8)

This is the second review of the trio of a seafood place roundup. This is the original one, located on the down-ram of the Simpang Tiga flyover. You won't miss it if you take the roundabout instead of the flyover, and turn into King's Centre; it's the corner shop on your right. Due to its locality, you tend to get some bonus in your food courtesy of the Ministry of Works: dust.

Like its sister-eatery, there is a showcase of fresh seafood and vegetables for customers to choose from, but most of, if not all, of the customers can't be bothered with it; just order from the comfort of table, and trust your instinct. Looks is one thing this place hasn't got going for it, but then looks can be deceptive. This place was quite packed when we arrived at 6:30 p.m. - farm hands, just like us!

You might have wonder why we always order Midin (ferns) of all vegetables. It's one of those few without anything sprayed on them - grown in the wilds. From the photo below, you might have guessed that this place is non-halal/kosher. Lucky for us, that leg didn't have too much fat; full of flavor especially with that large knob of garlic. The Chinese Red wine is also a no-no for halal certified eateries too. Somebody discovered the beautify of crispy fried Black Promfet recently (instead of the usual steamed fish), thus you'll be seeing a lot of it.

Thai Fried Black Promfret With Mango (RM28)

The food are very much itemized, so you pretty much know what you're paying for. So bring out the calculator, and round out the figures... plus RM4 for 4 bowls of rice.

Next week will be the last installment... really!

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!
