That Lobster!

3:24 AM

This is certainly a very long overdue post. It was supposed to be posted in May!

After all the men in the previous posts to feed your natural desires, why not feast on something real and substantial. I mean food. Scrumptious ones that will whet your appetite and fill your belly.

Remember I posted somewhere back about going to Pulau Langkawi? Well, that went very well and I had the time of my life with my friends. I would really love to go back there some day again. It's beautiful and a real paradise on Earth, with all the cheap beer and cheap food that you can eat.

If you are heading there soon, try Sawadee Thai Restaurant that serves delicious Thai cuisine. And, they have the most expensive item going for a song, which is.... drum roll please! *tram tam tam tam*.....LOBSTER!

This is a medium sized one that costs around RM150, if I'm not wrong. Compared to another famous restaurant on the island, which is Orkid Ria, a lobster like this over there costs RM360. That's around half the price!

Another view of the wonderful lobster. It's grilled with melted cheese on top, and is absolutely a delight. If you haven't tasted lobster, imagine a cross between crab and chicken. That's what it tastes like to me. 
Simply divine, albeit sinful. :D

Besides the lobster, we also had Thai Curry Crab. This is also very delicious, especially paired with rice!

This is not exactly Tom Yam, but more like a Thai kind of seafood soup. This is a bit bland although it's rich in spiciness and the taste of the sea. The Tom Yam should fare better.

Overall, the pricing here is fair. Not exactly a cheap lunch, but compared to KL, you will certainly feel it's worth it, with all the fresh seafood that you can have.

It's certainly a very good restaurant in it's category.

Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant
Jalan Pantai Tengah, Mukim Kedawang,
07000 Langkawi.
(It's actually very near to Pantai Cenang.)

Now, for very cheap seafood in Langkawi, head to this place called Wonderland Food Store in Kuah town.

Kam Heong lala! I've forgotten how cheap it is, but we order like 5 dishes (all seafood), with white rice, drinks and another plate of fried mee, overall it costs us not even more than RM80. 

As they say in Cantonese, dai dou lan! (Worth it till it's rotten! Or something like that.)

Sambal sotong! Another wonderful dish to pair with white rice. It's so fresh that it has a bit of a crunch when you bite into it.

Here's the address of the place. I think it's near to this hotel called Bella Vista.

Wonderland Food Store
Lot 179, 180, 181 Pusat Perniagaan Kelana Mas,
Jalan Trimula, Kuah,
07000 Langkawi.
If you do visit Langkawi in the future, do go to these places to have a meal. It won't disappoint.  

Normal programming will resume soon. This is my first blog post about food, but it won't be the last. :)
