Golden Coast Shrimp @ Oasis Ara Damansara

July 14, 2013

This Taiwanese seafood chain invaded Malaysia this month, landing in Oasis Ara Damansara, PJs current hot spot for hearty eating & heavy drinking.

Golden Coast Shrimp works for casual, communal meals. Service is amiable, space is abundant.

Not surprisingly, shrimp steals the spotlight here, hefty ones prepared in styles including buttered (our pick) or with pepper, garlic, sesame oil or lemon. Each plate costs RM60-RM65, comprising what seems like more than a dozen juicy crustaceans.

Marvelous mantou bread to mop up the sauce. Hot & fluffy-fresh, with a golden-crisp exterior.

The menus limited for now, but black pepper crab & spiral-shell sea snails also feature on it.

 Bonus shrimp & seafood stop: The Hokkaido summer food fair that started its run this week at Isetan KLCCs FoodMarket (operating July 12-22).

Everything heres expensive, but the RM50 for rice topped with a bounty of sea urchin, prawn, salmon roe & flying fish roe supplies a whole lot of satisfaction.

Hokkaido ramen with scallops, prawns & corn clocks in at over RM40; two can share this.

Chestnut-flavored Hokkaido milk ice cream (RM12), washed down with a little sake.

Numerous other attractions at the Hokkaido food fair, from cherry blossom rice cakes to sekihan sticky red bean rice to fluffy cream puffs.
