Our tales have come to an end

With a heavy heart, I'm here to declare that this will be the final post for the two superheroes. Yes, our tales have concluded, as the two superheroes have gone separate ways for now, and since this blog has always been a chronicles of our lives together, it's only right that this be the end of A Tale of Two Superheroes.

Thank you for all your support all these while, and we're going to miss all of you!

Makan-makan at Sri Petaling Seafood Restaurant

After having concluded the two superheroes' super long chronicles of their Singapore trip in their previous post, they are now finally able to post some of their backdated posts. So sometime in November, we actually went for a makan-makan session with our dear Superhero S' sis, Winnie. Reflecting upon her excellent recommendation of Boon Boon Cafe last year, we believe that her next recommendation would be just as equally great! Haha. Yeah, we absolutely believe in her good taste... *grins*

And so, after giving us super detailed instructions on how to get to her next recommendation, we headed off there in hope for a delightful foodie adventure. Finding our way there is already an adventure by itself. According to Winnie, the restaurant is located pretty near Carrefour at Sri Petaling, "Just pass by Carrefour on your right, turn here turn there, go straight, do a little u-turn, and... voila! You will be able to find the restaurant on your left". Since we were quite unfamiliar with the area, and with the unhelpful dim lighting and all, we actually thought that we had lost our way when we found ourselves venturing deeper into a residential area. Haha. It turns out that the open-air restaurant IS in fact located there! Phew!

Sri Petaling Seafood Restaurant is apparently right next to a golf course, and it's also one of Winnie's favourite place for dining. Since it's obviously her territory, we were absolutely comfortable with her ordering her usual favourites. Haha.

And while waiting for our dishes to arrive, we were comfortably sipping our hot Chinese tea... Ahhh.... such bliss! With the restaurant being so spacious and airy, it was really pleasurable even to sit there and watch the world go by...

Since Winnie mentioned that the serving here is pretty large, we were comfortable with just having ordered 3 dishes since there were only the 3 of us. And the first dish to arrive was their signature Claypot Homemade Taufu with (some kind of) Vegetable... *grins*

Absolutely delicious with the soft, smooth taufu being nicely coated with some super thick and flavourful sauces! Yummmmmm........ And she's right about the big serving! Haha. :p

Next, the Fried Chicken Bits with Salted Egg.

We're not sure if we got the name right, but we do know that the fried chicken bits were coated with salted egg and fried with curry leaves! Haha. Now this dish is quite a refreshing touch for the two superheroes. Not having accustomed to order such a dish with a twist, Superhero W loved the fried chicken to bits!!! The best thing was that the fried chicken wasn't dry, but rather moist! All thanks to the salted egg I think. Thumbs up!

And finally, Fried Fish Fillets with Butter...

This is another of Winnie's favourite must-haves... and it's not hard to figure out why. Frying the fish with the butter makes the dish very fragrant to start with, and flavour-wise, it's really quite fantastic! I've always loved dishes with all these messy strands of fried butter... :p

This place certainly receives a good recommendation from us as well... all thanks to the wonderful food and soothing environment! In short, we'll definitely be making our way here again. Haha. :p
