Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant - Teluk Panglima Garang (Selangor)

Of course, we are regular customers at most hawker stalls within where we stay. Especially on Sundays or even Saturdays, because I definitely need a break from cooking. I really need to stay away from my hot and burning kitchen. Otherwise, I may end up in the mental ward. It can't be eating my own cooking all the time too. On this Sunday, we made major plans. Oh-yes, anywhere further from our Shah Alam zone is really far. Nevertheless, at the last one hour or so, our friend wanted to hop into our Carey Island food venture. Well and good, why not, he was also willing to drive. All the better. So, we journeyed with the intention of hitting Carey Island, but somehow, maybe because we couldn't contain our hunger, we diverted to Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant. An unassuming coffee shop restaurant in quite a huge open space, already 3/4 packed by the time we arrived at about 7.30pm. More and more customers kept streaming in once we sat, a plate of mango pickled with bits of assam boi and chilli padi was served before we ordered. Oh-heaven. I love spicy sour sweet notes., I couldn't get enough of this pickle. Almost on the verge of calling for another serving, then again, since dinner is gonna be a complete meal, I didn't want to push for another plate of pickle.
Curried Siakap Fish, Fried Hokkien Mee, Garlic Asparagus and Salted Egg Crab arrived one after the other. Curried Siakap couldn't be faulted.  A whole medium size fish  in a thick curry, made alongside chillies, curry leaves, onion and ladies fingers. Fish was fresh, curry flavourful, as spicy as we like.    
Next, we tackled the hokkien mee. Thick yellow noodles, prawns and green veggies drenched in a soy sauce gravy. Taste was okay but really, you don't have to drive all the way to this restaurant for hokkien mee. Pretty much a standard noodle dish offered in every other similar Chinese restaurants.
Asparagus stir fried with garlic looked unappealing, but overcooked. Evidently nothing promising.
Similarly, salted eggs crab didn't go down well because saltiness overpowered the whole dish. Both of us couldn't eat but our friend wouldn't let go. He finished off all of it.
Efficient service started to slack. Extra rice called for was no where to be seen. We waited and gave up. In fact, maybe a blessing in disguise since we were already full and it was getting late for the long drive back home. Bill came up to RM103.00, just wondering if we should drive all the way again to Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant.
