DINNER @ NEW HONG KONG SEAFOOD, JALAN SONG, KUCHING

This one is for Xiao Mik... the owner has to rushed home immediately last night (300 odd km.) after hearing she's fallen sick...

Steamed Parrot Fish

I had dinner at this eatery a long time ago when it was an outpost at Jalan Beng Hock, behind the famous steamboat place. Yes, that was a long time ago... I've no idea as to when they moved to this present location behind the Upwell Supermarket at Jalan Song. From the info. I gather, this place is open for business on the 1st. of Chinese New Year. So next time you're in a bind as to where to dine on such time, this is the place. Enough of the plug already!

We brought our fish for this dinner, and was told by the proprietress/chef that the fish is a prized item by Hongkies (she, herself, being one). Shhhh, don't tell anyone, it's cheap here (I mean, in Kuching)... RM18 per kg.! It's got one silky flesh - way better than the more expensive Promfret. Steamed with ginger and preserved black beans... just perfect!

Fried Kampung Chicken With Ginger

That's another version of your K'nio Si-Kay up there. Enough ginger to bring out the spring of the free range chicken, and nicely caramelized too in the soy sauce !

Fried Eggplant With Minced Pork & Salted Fish

A simple soup of winter melon with chicken's feet and spareribs to sweeten the deal is all that is needed to cleanse the palate...

... also the plain Kailan with garlic brings an uncomplicated taste to greens, balancing out an 70 odd ringgit meal.

Looks good! What's the name of the fish? Got lots of bones or not? Black Pomfret's RM17.99 at The Marketplace...and don't ask about the somewhat bland White Pomfret! If you bring your own fish, how much do you have to pay for the cooking?

parrot fish 'cos it's shaped like a beak of a parrot. it sells for over rm20 in sibu... you find it occasionally.
you know the mark up of food is about 100% of raw ingredients, so i would say, it costs over RM20 to have the fish steamed.

Looks good! How much did everything cost you? How many people eat for that portion?

Kong-Kay said...

with drinks and cost of fish, the whole dinner came to about RM100 for 5 persons.

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...
