Unique Seafood @ Sec13, P.J.

Last nite was my aunt's birthday n' we threw her surprise birthday dinner @ Unique Seafood Restaurant. As the name indicates, the varieties of the seafood offered are uniquely extensive.
You will definitely be amazed by this restaurant which looks more like an Aquarium. See this...

Aiks...I forgot to jot down the name of this big crab. Looks like a sea monster to me.
Snow crabs. Look at the price, RM148 for one kg???
Red lobsters. Another expensive item.
OMG....see this fatty king crab! RM198 per kg.
Ewww...geoducks. Wondered why their flesh are so much longer and bigger than their own shell.
Alaskan King Crab.
Now back to the cooked ones...
Bamboo clams cooked with minced garlic. This is the best dish of the nite. The clam was cooked to perfection, fresh and crunchy.
Oyster baked in thick layer of cheese. I supposed that this cooking style doesn't work for fresh oysters. The flavours of the cheese were too overpowering.
Flower crabs cooked in butter sauce. The sauce was good and not greasy at all though the flower crabs were rather meat-less.
Fried tofu topped with pacific clams and veges.
Finally, crunchy fish cutlets cooked in lemon mayo sauce + fish paste with crispy chicken skin.
The seafood were really good and fresh from the aquariums (of course). But I still feel sorry for those sea creatures. I mean they were kept in super tiny aquariums, piling on top of each other and the way they slaughter the sea creatures was so....u know what I mean. Hope I didn't spoil ur appetite. Here is the address:
Lot9B-3, Jalan Kemajuan, Section 13, 46200 Petaling Jaya.
Ph: 03-79602088

If Precious Pea sees this, she's so gonna cry. :-P I believe this seafood restaurant is related to Pantai Seafood in Kg Sg Ara. Of course, depending on where u live, this seems a lot more accessible.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

Tummythoz said...

For me, I don't eat seafood sitting near the tanks or even face them. Yes, sad but they do taste so fantabulous!

Precious Pea said...

xiu long bao,
I don't think I want to visit your blog again next time. You always make me crave for something. hahaha!

Most of my friends end up in Pantai Seafood which is opened by the same owner and presumably at slightly lower prices. However, Pantai's cooking is inconsistent.

Dwayne Foong said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

tummythoz: True...how ironic is it rite?

precious pea:okok...thx for the link :)

kok: Dun lar....aussie oso got lotsa crabs mar...

Precious Pea said...

I was told Pantai Seafood is non-halal whereas Unique is halal. Guess that's the difference.

Tummythoz said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

tankiasu: okay! U set the place arr, must bring us for good food.

precious pea: Oic...yalor, joe told me about the wicked pork knuckle thing from pantai.

tummythoz:LoL...yalor, faster plan for the 2nd gathering.

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
haha! You have a great blog, do you think I'll ever stop visiting?:P Crabs? Manyak expensive leh. Cannot afford lah.

Char Siew Bao said...

Ohlala... seafood over here is wunderfull!
But i still prefer eric's deli @ hartamas SC though cuz price is more reasonable and the seafood still comes fresh!

But it is a once in a blue moon mouth watering experience and no regrets! Note: Not for animal lovers, cuz sometimes they slaughter the poor fishies in the open.

jason said...

Seafood galore eh? Seafood are not my cup of tea except those easy-to-eat ones LOL... But I like soft shell crab and mantis prawn

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok:haha...then go cherry or apricot picking, sure very untung one. Last time idiot me did strawberry picking, which was plainly labour abuse, money earned oso not enoh for me to buy 'yoko-yoko'.

csb:I dunwan to go these kind of places oledi, pity...

jason:Cus u r too lazy to eat the mafan shelled seafood???

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
I also want leh. But then, now not strawberries season. Hmm... but I have something in mind at the end of this year. Hopefully I will untung a lot and then, "rich" for a while. hahaha!

jason said...

XLB: No ler, I just don't fancy the fishy smell...

'`*~.,Beautiful*Nightmare,.~*`' said...

Hey... That "Monster" crab... They call it Spider crab :) I go there every year for my birthday. Have you tried their Lobster Sashimi? This year the Japan GT girls were there too

gandhabonik said...

I like seafood too much. My favorite one is cioppino, a tomato-based seafood. I feel sorry to for the little innocent creatures for the way they killed to enrich our taste buds. But we have to accept it. That's the way life circulates and survives, chap.
