The idea of WGOIJB Makan Blitz was to raid popular food centres in JB as a group and try out as many different stalls as possible together. After the makan spree, we will highlight our favourite stalls of the evening.

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 chef handling the cooking was skillful and did a good job of cooking the seafood just right, with a bit of smokiness while retaining its natural juiciness.

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.

  2. Been frequenting his stall for ages.I have to admit its one of the better ikan bakar places anywhere.Unfortunately,there is a sad story about the loss of his wife about 7 years ago and it was mainly because of that I started to visit his stall if not for the food.After having tried his ikan bakar I'm convinced its better than most places.

  3. OMG....I was just telling my gf 2 days ago about this place and now its on Johor Kaki!I have been frequenting this ikan bakar stall for many years.Definitely the best I have had so far.By the way,I was one of the physicians responsible for treating his wife 7 years ago.It is indeed a sad story.I had no idea who the owner was until he came upto me and introduced himself when I went to Cedar Point a few years after his wife passed on.I didn't recognize him but he recognized me immediately.Nice people and nice ambience.Parking is plenty and good for watching weekend EPL matches on large screen projector.

    1. Thanks Doc for the background story. Behind every person is their own story and struggles. It helps all of us if everyone has empathy for others and support each other as we walk this path together.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
