Youngest SIL treated everyone (immediate family members, aunts, uncles and cousins from the Yaps) to a lavish dinner of sang har (fresh huge prawns) and crabs at Green View Restaurant @ SS2 Petaling Jaya last Saturday (2 November 2019) before her return to Hawaii on Tuesday after a 2-week holiday here. The last time she came back to Malaysia was 6 years ago and most of the relatives haven’t seen her since. And the last time the girls and I saw her was in Hong Kong 3 years ago. We’re not sure when we’ll see her again and in which country.
I’ll let the pix do the talking. To lovers of crabs and prawns, sorry if I made you drool and sent you on a seafood frenzy 😜
We ordered 6 huge prawns and specifically told the captain to divide the dish into two plates with more noodles on each plate. But when the bill came, it showed double entry of this dish. The silai-ness in me (I was the one who checked the bill), prompted me to query the captain; he double checked and realized that they billed us double! RM512 extra charged to us!
One of the best sang har meen in KL – big fresh prawns in crispy fried noodles drenched in insanely moreish egg sauce.
Suckling pig and deep fried pumpkin with curry leaves. The fried pumpkin is addictive. ‘Healthier’ than fries and tastes so good!
Yin Yang Soon Hock fish ~ half steamed and half fried. One is definitely not enough for the 13 of us.
Kam Heong Lala.
Another show-stopper ~ crabs. We ordered crabs cooked in 2 different styles: Lai Yau (milk and butter) and sweet and sour.
The waiting staff at our table helped us to break the crab shells. He wrapped each claw and leg with clean disposable plastic bag and patiently stood at the side table for over 20 minutes hammering the shells for us.
Deep fried buns to be dunked into the zangy tangy sweet and sour sauce. One plate was definitely not enough and hubs eventually ordered another plate and another!
Salted fish fried rice.
This silai’s eyes popped out when she saw RM1,024.14 for the Sang Har Meen. I was certain there was a double entry but hubs said “it’s this price la. It’s that expensive as the prawns are so huge” but the silai insisted that the Captain double checks the bill. And the Captain came back apologizing profusely for double charging us RM500+!

After a hearty dinner with lots of photography (as usual), SIL said that she wanted to eat durians ~ one last round before she flies back to Hawaii. So off we went to the durian street on Jalan SS2, to Durian Man restaurant for her to get durian takeaway for her breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow ☺️
Durian Man is the biggest durian restaurant in Malaysia, opened in August 2019. Durian lovers get to savour almost all the durian species here, which includes Musang King, Black Thorn, Raja Kunyit, Red Prawn, D24 and more in a modern and comfortable setting. For those who intend to bring durian back to their country, Durian Man provides service to vacuum pack and seal the fruit neatly without emitting an iota of smell.
