Pantai Seafood Restaurant – Petaling Jaya Malaysia

I have been busy lately but here’s a heads up if you are traveling to Petaling Jaya in Malaysia. This no-frills restaurant may just be the place you can enjoy seafood (live tanks), some local cze char dishes and double-boiled soups.

This is where the locals eat! The restaurant may be no-frills but their dishes are no nonsense! I especially liked the steamed pomfret Teochew style. The tangy sour gravy made me order some rice (after we had noodles) to go with it.


I traveled to Kuala Lumpur immediately after my Taiwan trip to meet up with a friend who flew into Malaysia from Canada.

My Canadian friend had several supplier meetings and they treated us to yummy makan (food) and Pantai Seafood Restaurant is one of them.

I had thought the green shreds to be seaweed but they were actually the leafy parts of the Kailan (kale).

Chinese Spinach with Shimeji Mushrooms.

Steamed Pomfret Teochew-style.
I was blown away when my host told me this was a “live” fish.
I have never had a swimming (just prior to ordering and cooking) promfet before. In Singapore, most if not all promfets are chilled/frozen.

白灼蝦 or Boiled (live) Prawns with yummy spicy shrimp dip.
It was so good we ordered another round.

Sang Meen is crispy fried egg noodles and this was served with prawns and squid.

The food is generally good if not excellent by food snob standard; I’ll risk by saying that the dishes will be delighting even the fussy Singaporean tastebuds! As for the price… Sorry, my friend’s host gave us a treat and it would be rude for me to ask him how much he spent on us when I only got to know him.

Happy eating and bonding 🙂
