Chua Kee Seafood 蔡记海鲜 @ Gelang Patah, Johor Baru

Chua Kee Seafood 蔡记海鲜 @ Gelang Patah, Johor Baru

For seafood lover, Chua Kee Seafood at Gelang Patah is one of the must-go seafood restaurants. Although Gelang Patah is distant from Johor Bahru down town, it does not stop the town folks from visiting Chua Kee for the quality seafood with reasonable pricing. 
Clam Soup  上汤啦啦
Stir-fried lala with strong flavour seasoning (e.g. black pepper, sambal and kam heong) has been the more favourite choice among patrons. If you are looking for clam with lighter flavour, clam soup is a good choice. The broth was very sweet, but also with a hint of natural spiciness from ginger, white pepper and rice wine, very stomach-warming. The clams were not over-cooked too, remained their tenderness. 
Salted Egg Prawn  咸蛋虾
Dishes cooked with salted egg have been very popular since few years ago, mainly because of its savoury taste which is very appetizing. Salted egg dishes can come in dry or moist version, but I like the moist version better as the gravy can go with the white rice very well. The salted egg gravy in golden yellow colour makes the prawn very appealing too. 

Fried French Beans with Minced Meat 干煸四季豆
French Beans was slightly soaked in boiling oil, making its texture softer and easily cooked, before a quick stir frying with minced meat. The vegetable is slightly oily but very flavourful.
BBQ Chicken Wing 蜜汁烤鸡翅
Our research showed that this BBQ Chicken Wing is a must-try dish in Chua Kee. The chicken wings were deep fried then coated with honey and barbecue sauce, definitely an excellent beer food.

Fried Beancurd with Salted Egg 咸蛋豆腐
The fried beancurd was very well done too, crispy on the outside, silky smooth and soft in the inside.

Blackpepper Crab  黑胡椒螃蟹
How can we miss out crabs in a seafood restaurant? The crab was very reasonably priced hence we placed order without hesitation. There is no additional cooking fee charged by the restaurant. The crabs were very fresh, so the flesh is very solid and succulent, perfectly matched with fragrant and delicious black pepper sauce. The peppery taste is strong and favourful but didn't overwhelm the sweetness of the crab flesh, went very well with rice. 


A family photo of our orders. Yummy.
