Portugese style Grilled Fish @ Petaling Street

Tired of shopping for knock-offs and faux brands on Petaling Street? Stop awhile for some hot, hot grilled fish

Errrr... not by the riverbank but by Hong Leong bank along Petaling Street. All the ingredients are about the same except the choice of seafood. Within the dish they put dried chillies, long beans, some lady's fingers and dried shrimps. They then marinate the seafood with the ingredients, wrap it up in aluminium foil and toss it on the grill. The blend of ingredients provide a tasty sauce with the seafood and it’s spicy! This is probably the closest dish to the "white man killer" , a sambal made for me by a friend on a cold London evening many years ago.

This place is packed on all days and you will see many people standing around waiting for seats. After finding a seat, we ordered ikan pari, lala and also the prawns. For drinks all of us had sugarcane. The aroma of grilled seafood permeated the air as we sat waiting for our food. Our favourite has to be the ikan pari. Every time I come here ikan pari is a must. It is very tender and the sauce is very tasty and hot at the same time. A must try!
The spicy sauce coupled with the sweetness of prawns and lalas give a nice mix of taste. For meek tastebuds be prepared to down cup after cup of sugarcane. From the look on the sugarcane seller’s face, we know that he’s making a killing set near this place. Service is quick and food is consistent. Our tip is if you reach there about 6.00pm and find that there is no place to sit, order the food to be ready at about 8.00pm and spend some time browsing along Petaling street, rather than spending the time to wait for some of the patrons to leave.
