Fatt Kee Roast Fish (发记招牌特色烤鱼) @ Pudu, Kuala Lumpur.

Inspired by the Chong Qing-Grilled Fish, Fatt Kee Roast Fish has recently gained a lot of attention from netizens due to its gigantic serving with loads of Seafood swimming in the huge pot. The concept is not new- Deep Fried Fish with Seafood (like Prawns, Squid, Flower Clams) and vegetables soaked in a spicy-savory Seafood broth; served in the way similar to Hot Pot/ Steamboat. The spiciness varies and can be tuned accordingly but the heat-intolerant should be extra careful on selecting the spiciness as it can be lip-burning hot. It can be then enjoyed just like an ordinary Hot Pot, with extra condiments like Udon, Vegetables and Seafood to be added. Do note that there are two branches and both locations are near to each other; one is air-conditioned while another one is al-fresco setting. The flavors were fun and the combination was exciting, a place worth visiting.

Signature Roast Seafood (Rm 99)

We opted for the mildly-spiced promotional set of Rm 99 for a start but it turned out to be quite spicy. The Seafood broth carried a tinge of acidity from the Chinese pickled Vegetables. It was most appetizing and refreshing, especially with the aid of those crunchy greens (Cabbage, Sprouts, Enoki Mushrooms and Parsley). The Fish was Song Fish, a type of Riverfish widely consumed in central region of Malaysia. It has plenty of bones but the flesh was smooth and firm. It reminded us of those Korean Kimchi-Seafood Hot Pot and for the four of us, this portion was more than good enough.

  1. Luxury indeed! But those huge prawns cost a bomb. Just a few of them and it's already worth the price!
