West Wing, Kuching

Every time whenever I drive past this shop, West Wing, it reminds me of the television series The West Wing, a television show created by Aaron Sorkin. I went to the restaurant last night with my friends and found out that it is a very pleasant place, especially after rain when the cool breeze is blowing through the air, gentle and refreshing. Even though this place is not as glamorous as TGI Fridays, Chilis or Dave’s, but the food is sumptuous and the price... very very reasonable. And everything is HALAL here.

Mix Grill

Grilled Fish

Fish and Chips

And the most important part... The location: Wisma Ng Aik Oh, 2½ Mile, Rock Road, 93250 Kuching, Sarawak or in close proximity from TIENS, Teledynamics or Fortune Land.

Fish & Co. Seafood Platter (Gurney Plaza)

Another post from me.

So Loctor & the Mrs went to Gurney Plaza last Saturday to try out the new restaurant at Gurney Plaza known as Fish & Co. This shop was highly recommended by friends and colleagues especially their shop specialty -- Seafood Platter.

The outlet is located at the ground floor in between McDonalds and Sushi King. I forgot what name that stretch of walkway is called. (Could be Gurney Walk or something like that...)

The ambience is nice with seafood theme decorations all over. We ordered the 'Seafood Platter for one' and also the Ice Lemon Tea.

The Tea arrived first and it was good!!! For a long time I've never tasted such a full iced lemon tea. It came in a big glass too. Unfortunately, it's bloody expensive. (~RM5 if not mistaken)

Later, our dish arrived:

Actually, there are supposed to be 5 prawns. One was quickly carted away by the Mrs as can be seen in the background.

In the kuali lookalike metal bowl, we have a strip of fish, 5 prawns, sotong tossed with spices and chilli flakes, fries and also rice.

In my opinion, the fish and prawns tasted the best. The sotongs were a bit too much and I couldn't finish it. The fries are just nice.. not too salty and soft in the insides. The rice looks like nasi briyani but tasted quite bland.

All in all, we spent ~RM35 for both food and drinks. There is another version called 'seafood platter for two' which costs RM40++ with bigger servings.

If you happen to drop by Penang, go and give it a try. You might just love it.

p/s: the next table ordered a black pepper stingray which looks waaaaaaaaaay more appetising. Might go there and try it in the future.
