For the Makan Blitz on Cedar Point food centre near Hotel Grand Paragon, Sin Kee Ikan Bakar BBQ seafood stall got the most Likes from our Eat Gang. This stall even got repeat orders from us as we stayed on to chill, and chatted the evening away.
I usually consider three key points when appreciating a BBQ seafood stall, namely, the freshness of the ingredients, the quality of the stall's sambal, and the chef's skill in cooking the seafood.
Sin Kee Ikan Bakar BBQ seafood stall impressed on all these three key criteria and so it was little wonder that it attracted the most votes during our Makan Blitz.
Everything at this stall was fresh - the boss was showing off his fresh sotong (squid) with full confidence.
This photo was taken in difficult dim light and yet we can still see the bright eyes of the fish and sotong (squid).
The sambal was not too spicy hot and was savoury. It was also not too greasy, which is a common shortcoming of average BBQ seafood stalls.
The accompanying vegetables like petai (irresistible stinky beans) and lady fingers were also done very well. The texture was crisp and crunchy. Again, it was not overly greasy.
All in, this BBQ seafood was delicious as the stingray and sotong (squid) flesh were tender and juicy while its taste was a blend of natural sweetness, spiced up with aromatic, savoury sambal.
Some of our Eat Gang declared that this is their favourite BBQ seafood stall in JB.
->> Fresh seafood, great sambal chili and good grilling skills make Sin Kee Ikan Bakar a Must Try for BBQ seafood lovers.
