Langkawi 2011 - Dinner at Boat Restaurant

For an established tourist destination, it is surprising that Langkawi hasn't developed much of a culinary reputation. If you search on the internet, most of the recommendations are restaurants and cafes in hotels and resorts. Outside of the resorts, the selections are quite limited.

We were looking for a place for dinner near our resort along JalanPantaiTengah, and came across this simple-looking seafood restaurant that seemed to be quite popular. It is basically just a shed with some tables and chairs, but the food looked quite decent.

If you have been around Malaysia, you will know that most of the dishes at seafood restaurants are very similar. It is as if the cooks at these restaurants all went to the same cooking school. These were what we ordered.

Stir-fried kangkong (morning glory) with belachan.

Deep Fried Prawns with Frosted Egg Yolk. The egg floss was nicely done, unfortunately the prawns were way overcooked.

Tom Yam Seafood Soup.

Stir-fried veggies.

Braised Tofu on hot-plate.

Squid in Kung Pao Style (with dried chillies). One of the best dish of the night. The squid was really fresh and tender.

The food at Boat Restaurant is reasonable for the price you pay. It is also one of very few options along Jalan Pantai Tengah. Recommended if you are staying nearby.
