|Thanks to Teow Oei for inviting me for this fish tasting session and I was glad to meet James Wong the master of all these fishes. With us is my buddy Joe aka Jotaro Zen|
|This Empurau fish costs more than ten thousand Ringgit and it from Sibu Sarawak.|
|James breeds many type of fishes, his tilapia are as heavy as 4 kg and definitely big for a tilapia fish. As for this food tasting he prepared a salt baked dish.|
|Together with us is a group of friends from a Chinese media.|
|The skin was carefully removed by James and was then ready for the tasting. I like it. It was fresh sweet and juicy in the inside. Good leh!|
|James took me to his kitchen and showed me the fishes that we will be eating later. He asked me the smell the emparau fish, a bit shock and out of courtesy I smelled it and surprisingly it had a good aroma....|
|There were two type of catfishes that we will be eating one of them from Laos and another a local bred.|
|James discussing with his chef as how he wanted the fishes to be prepared....|
|The highlight of the evening, the Empurau fish merely steamed with a slight doses of salt and nothing more, incredibly tasty. It had a sweet creamy taste, I like it.|
|The scale is so soft that it is eatable.|
The two different type of catfishes on the table, Loas versus Malaysian.
|My tummy was already full and yet James took out a plastic bag of fresh oysters from China and he going to served again..|
|Braised fresh and raw fish maw. The taste was absolutely different from the dried type, it was very creamy and sticky...ready stick to your mouth. I think one requires a period of time to acquire such taste especially for the first time.|
|Here comes the oysters from China served on a hot plate still big and succulent.|
|The other half portion was prepared in deep fried version which was supposed to pair with our beer.|
I have never eaten so much fishes in one meal and these were expensive particularly empurau. Thanks to James & Oei for their kind invitation and it was a memorable meal for me.
Soon this restaurant will be shifting to a new place as the present one has been sold for a development.
