At Temple Street, there are a whole lot of choices for food and it seems to be an enjoyable thing for the locals to sit by the roadside eating fried clams or seafood with cans of beer.
One of the restaurants at the corner which offer this luxury of enjoying the seafood in Temple street is the Aberdeen Seafood Restaurant.
The restaurant was the typical roadside stalls you can think of or rather, the kopitiam kind of shop.
Well, imagine when I asked for herbal drinks and I was brought this?
The canned herbal drink; Wong Lou Kat
( I was expecting home-cooked herbal drinks....bummer)
The menu offered a huge variety of seafood cooked in different styles
Boiled freshwater prawns was one of the style which can preserve the freshness and sweet taste of the prawns after cooking.
Costing HKD40 (MYR20), the prawns really tasted sweet and was tasty!
It was also served with soy sauce.
Somehow I noticed Hongkies do love to serve or take their food with added flavors.
Clams or Lala fried with fermented soy sauce (HKD28 ~ MYR14)
The clams were cooked in this way which was really delicious
Steamed marble goby (Soon Hock)!!
Seriously, this fish only cost about HKD60 (MYR30) in HK compared to MYR80-100 in Malaysia!
Really sweet and deluxcious!
And now I know why the Hongkies seem to enjoy having their late night suppers at these hawker or roadside stalls; eating all the fried clams and seafood!:D
