Mooncake Festival Dinner @ Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant (椰花园), Teluk Gong

After I’m back at home in the evening, without waiting another minute, I immediately announce that I’m all ready to out for dinner now, NOW! I’m hungry and can’t wait :D when suddenly my brother came up with this idea of dining at a rather faraway place – Coconut Flower Seafood Restaurant at Teluk Gong (Port Klang) or as we usually call it in Chinese 椰花园. Guess it doesn’t need any further introduction as it is a well-known dining place for all seafood lovers since ages ago. I never been there for quite a long time and since I’m not the one who will be driving, I’m totally up for that idea :D

A rare eat-together family dinner.

We reached before dawn when the whole place was still very empty with only a few table occupied by early diners like us. We get to choose the table with an individual roof a la kampung style. Here’s what we ordered:


Salted Egg-Yolk Prawn, Gong Bou Mantis Prawn, Oyster Omelette (蚵煎) - finger-lickin’ good ~


Seafood Claypot – with lots of large fish maw.. mmM ~


Stir-fried Lettuce with Fermented Beancurd Sauce – fermented beancurd sauce gave this plain vegetable a kick of odd-but-aromatic taste.


Fermented Coconut Liquor (椰花酒) – Sounds familiar yet? This restaurant is named after this local and hot-selling alcoholic beverage.

If you are up to something special and local, give Fermented Coconut Liquor a try! Thumb rule given by my brother – drink before you smell! It has a sour and light alcohol taste. Somehow, the coconut taste remained but just lighter. Drink it on its own or add Guinness Stout for an extra alcohol kick! To me, both versions are acceptable, though I just had a few sips of both.


Fermented Coconut Liquor + Guinness Stout

Our bill came up to a total of RM117.00 (+/-) which was quite reasonable for a seafood dinner with 5 dishes for 4 pax. It was a pleasant dinner with family, if only Keeve could throw lesser tantrums =.=
