Song Yen Seafood ~ Part 2

Since the last visit to Song Yen Seafood, we were told by the auntie to go back and try their other foods. And since my MIL and hubby auntie came over with the niece, we decide to bring them to try it out. Another motive is to order more dishes to try and share with my readers. ^-^
First hubby ordered:
2 different flavours fish
Hubby wanted to order this in our previous visit but was told that it was too big for just 3 of us. ^-^ So this time round, hubby have the opportunity to order this and try........
Closed up version of the deep fried fish with Thai sauces
They found that it is very spicy but yet very nice aroma.
Stir fry vegetables with deep fried fish fillet
They prefer the spicy version than this as they like the aroma of the spicy version.
Next, hubby ordered:
3 cup chickens
Since there are 2 kids dinning with us, we need to ordered something not spicy. And the 3 cup chickens tastes nice and the kids love it very much. As the chicken is very crispy outside and tender inside. And there are lots of basil aroma in this pot of 3 cups chicken.
Seafood Otak
Close up of seafood otak
This is one of the dishes that the auntie recommended. And the seafood otak tastes not bad. And we enjoy the young coconut flesh. It is very cooling. It goes well with the seafood otak. But not every one will enjoyed this dish though as some cannot stand the herbs use in the seafood otak. End up my MIL, hubby's aunt and me are the one who finished it as hubby don't really enjoy having otak-otak.
Watercress Soup
My gal eyes grow big when she heard that they have watercress soup as she loves this soup very much. So she suggests us to have this soup rather than the other kind of soups. ^-^ And the soup tastes nice and I think the 2 kids finished the soup.
Thai Style Tofu
This is also another recommended dish by the auntie. And the tofu is home made and tastes nice. Especially when it is coated with some spicy sauce.
Do drop by the stall when you feel like having some chu - char. And the total bill for the night is RM66.80 with 5 bowl of rice.

I never know they have 3 Cup Chicken. By the way, their seafood otak contains lots of herbs, the source of fiber.
