Lobster, Crab, Geoduck??? Any for you??

Last sunday, me and family went to Port Dickson to celebrate Father's day with my FIL. My FIL is currently working to supervise his workers at the Prawn's Farm at Lukut, Negeri Sembilan. Off we went, reach there around 2pm. Brought my FIL for a lunch at Chardin Restaurant (A seafood restaurant). The place was quite ok as it is located at the seaside and has a nice sea view for the customer.



As for our lunch, we only ordered few dishes which consist of Steamed Bawal, Steamed Crab, Asparagus, Beancurd with Minced Chicken and i don't know what snail was it. Hehe Out of all, I really love the steamed crab because the taste was just wonderful. It was sweet and very fresh. I recommend you that if any of you thinking to eat a very delicious and fresh crab, do try it at Chardin Restaurant. You won't regret it. And don't worry, it is a Halal Restaurant.

While waiting for the dishes to be served, I went to look around and found out that, fresh and live sea creatures are being served there. I was like, "Wow!! Bestnya..can order another additional dish lah". But after seeing the price, I almost fainted. Hahaha! everything was darn expensive. Just see the price, and you will be nodding you head along in agreement with me.

Pick which one you like. Lot of varieties here

Wow!! buy 3 free one..Abalone?? Anybody? It's only RM28/per pc. How many times do you think you will have the opportunity to try fresh abalone? Hehehe

This lobster which I forgot the name costs about RM298 per kg. Just imagine, this lobster will definitely weigh around 3-4kg. And that make it RM1192 / lobster???? *faint again*

This Rainbow lobster cost slightly cheaper than ther previous. It is only RM238 per kg. Haha..I have to pass on this too..cannot afford it..

Ok this cockle is not the 'sea ham' we saw at the wet market. It was a dammmmmmm big cockle. Haha I never see anything like it before..and it cost about RM28 per kg..Hmmmmm..still expensive I think. Imagine eating only 4-5 of it and it already cost about RM30??? Nah..not worth it..

How about Snow crab?? Do you think you might be interested with a RM268 per kg crab? Well, not me. Maybe next time. I'm wondering what make this crab so special. Is the taste better than the normal crab??

And lastly, Geoduck that cost about RM138 per kg. I don't have the faintest idea what is Geoduck is. Maybe it is for the rich only? Hehee If any of you know what creature is this, and how it is cooked...Do tell me please!!

There..few of the expensive treats if you can afford one. There are more, but I'm just too lazy to snap so many pix. I only choose the one I think might be interesting. There was a fish that cost RM138 per kg. I think it was a Grouper. But it was an ugly fish. So i didn't snap the pix of it.

After our lunch, we went to my FIL working place. Chatted for a while and back to KL. If you see the pix above, Hubby was holding daughter's hand and explaining to her about the prawns' farm..hehehe (i think lah! he likes to do that). Remember the revenge plot I've been planning for hubby for father's day celebration, well I don't have the heart to get even with him lah..hehehe Still give him a special treat to watch movie. (We reached KL, sent daughter and MIL home and head on to One Utama). Maybe I will get even with him next year..heheheeee!
Well, if any of you wondering and wanted to try eating those expensive 'creatures' above, just ask me ok..I will be happy to tell you the exact location of this restaurant.

Geoduck is a giant mud-burrowing bivalve mollusc found on the west coast of North America. 'Orang' jauh tu hehehe...

Kadus_Mama said...

m@urine ~ wah!!!!!! no wonder lah dia mahal kan..but how to cook it?? curry?? ekekeee

Lab papa said...

Wah, big feast la kadusmama. Bestnya.

Sometimes, i just wonder why all these kind of you-called creatures are way to expensive. They should be sold cheap because they've been forced to live in artificial environment. And artificial environment would induce stresses to these poor creatures. Thus, they perhaps have less nutrients compare to the their friends out in the wild.

Hehehe..just my though just my thought..hehehe

Apa apa pun..memang sadap bah

Kadus_Mama said...

Lab Papa ~ no big feast lah..we ate simple saja..normal food..teda lah telampau special..
Alamak lab papa..lax ko..hehehe I don't even know pasal stress binatang2 nie..but if what you say is true..then, rugi lah those yang p makan this creatures..kekurangan nutrient already!
I never eat real lobster, but fake one pernah lah..hehe and it taste very bad..tu abalone sedap though..makan masa CNY jak..

Nick Phillips said...

Gosh, I haven't been to PD in years la. I've got some vivid childhood memories of the place and I simply must make a trip there one day ...

Kadus_Mama said...

Nick ~ I agree with you..those foods are just too ridiculous expensive..we need to loan from bank before ordering any..hahaha..

I dunno what or how the geoduck taste like, but it do know it looks like something 'familiar'.. especially kalau tu org yg belum 'buang tu kulit'!!!

Rey said...
