The one common thing Malaysians have is the passion and love for food. Just a simple opening line of “Where is good for crabs?” can get strangers talking like old friends.
After a sweaty session of tennis, we usually cool down at the swimming pool and dip ourselves in the jacuzzi and rest our adrenaline-rushed bodies.
Here, we met an elderly man who apparently swims 5 km each day. Hence, a rather tanned and toned body, not common for a man his age. He overheard our foodieventure conversation on searching for a nice restaurant for crabs and started sharing his foodieventures.
He introduced to us Sweet Inn, in Damansara Kim, and said that we will not regret dining here. We believed his conviction and decided to listen to this wise elderly man.
When we arrived, believe it or not, we had no place to sit, and the restaurant was packed with patrons, and empty tables available were under reservation. The lady owner was gracious enough to remove one reserved table for us since we there were only 3 of us. She probably guessed we would eat and leave quickly based on our hungry faces.
We ordered a bowl of fish maw soup to share. Thankfully, we decided to share and not order a portion for 3, else we would have left the restaurant with our fly unzipped. It may not seem impressive from the picture, but the soup was really good. The maw was fresh too. In general, I am not a fan of this dish, but this deserves a thumbs up. In fact, the soup was very thick and viscous, I wouldn’t really consider it as a soup. RM 20+/bowl if I recalled correctly.
We wanted to have an appetizer, while waiting for our seafood dishes, and the restaurant serves 3 or 6 dish appetizer. We opted for the 3 dish appetizer, but surprised to know that this one plate was for 1 pax. The waitress brought 3 plates, but my eye caught a creepy crawly insect on the 3rd plate and shrieked, thinking it was a cockroach. The waitress did a super kungfu stunt, by quickly swooshing the plate away from sight and walked away from our table. The other two did not see anything but worried for a while before eating the food from ones placed on our table.
We cancelled the 3rd plate, as it was just too much food. I guess the creepy crawly insect earned us a free cancellation.
RM 18/plate. Rather pricey :/
