The ideal introduction to DeepSea FOOD might be the Boston lobsters; the restaurant offers no fewer than four full-fleshed preparations (RM158 each), three of them lusciously sauced up in claypots - the Claypot Red Chilli Signature (with red bird's eye chillies, egg, dried shrimp and ginger), Claypot Green Chilli Signature (with green bird's eye chillies, prawn shells, dried radish and tamarind), and Claypot Butter Cheese Garlic Curry Leaves (with branded butter, curry leaves, curry spices, evaporated milk and mozzarella cheese) - and one served grilled with a side of mango salsa and fries.
The claypot versions are suitable for customers who enjoy creamy comfort; each one is flavour-loaded, but the rich, natural sweetness of the hefty crustaceans still pierces through. Mop up the gravies with starchy choices of Steamed Hanamaki Bread (RM6) or Fried Silver Bread Roll (RM6).
If you like your seafood whole, check out the sea bass, immaculately grilled to a moist firmness, seasoned lightly with salt and pepper, partnered with a cold chilli sauce that's once again made in DeepSea FOOD's kitchen, illustrating its seriousness about flavour pairings (RM33.80), and the Argentinian squid that's meant to be a reinterpretation of the Philippines' stuffed Rellenong Pusit, taking a twist from Thailand with a tasty filling of tom yum fried rice, highlighting the meticulous creativity of the restaurant's founders and chefs throughout their recipes (RM25.80).
Soon after our visit, DeepSea FOOD also introduced another platter - the DeepSea FOOD Platter is meant for four persons, with a colossal portion of lobster, sea bass fillet, Hotate scallops, Argentinean squid, blue mussels, green mussels, half-shell scallops, sea prawns, chicken wings, grilled corn, ciabatta roll, fries and salad (RM198; photo of the final platter is courtesy of DeepSea FOOD).
Quality and quantity is assured across the board, with salads and sandwiches equally represented for folks who shun or seek carbs.
For the former, try the tang of the Salmon Fruit Salad with Lemon Mint Dressing, with the smoked salmon harmonising with the liveliness of pomegranates, oranges and green apples (RM19.80), and the Mixed Seafood with Homemade Thai Dressing, a marriage of ocean and land, combining shrimp and squid with rocket, lettuce and lolla rossa (RM16.80).
For the latter, the seafood is served engagingly in a croissant and ciabatta instead of regular bread - the Mixed Seafood in Croissant comes jam-packed with prawn meat, crab meat and squid for robust appetites (RM23.80), while the Salted Egg Mantis Shrimp in Ciabatta puts an Asian twist on what might evoke a Louisiana po' boy (RM23.80),
The bagel and the croissant are also among 14 mains that are additionally available on a special lunch menu that runs from 11:30am to 2:30pm, featuring one main and a self-service free flow of salad, soup of the day, cold beverages and hot coffee or tea - solid value for between RM15.80 to RM23.80, depending on the choice of main, with possibilities spanning sambal belacan prawn petai to grilled salmon fillet with fries to asam laksa mixed seafood ramen.
To sweeten up the palate at the end of the seafood splurge, order a Chocolate Fondue with fruits, biscuits and marshmallows for dunking.
DeepSea FOOD takes pride in pouring extra effort into the creation of its concoctions, which includes beverages like the sangrias, blended with fruits for a thicker texture compared to the typical sangrias. The Red Sangria comprises red wine, triple sec, orange, watermelon and lime, while the White Sangria adds Black Label, apples and lime to white wine - a refreshing counterpoint to the food (RM20 per glass; RM100 per jug, comprising eight glasses). Pure wine and beer are not neglected either.
For teetotalers, sip hot or cold with the Mixed Fruit Tea Pot (RM13.80) or the Passion Fruit Tea jug (RM18.80) respectively, both sufficient for two persons throughout the meal.
