It's been sometime since I last feasted on a good, hearty seafood meal. When I heard of Fortuna Palace Seafood Restaurant in Taman Kajang Prima, Kajang, I knew I had to try it out for myself. The restaurant has three floors and you can hold private events or even a wedding at the banquet here.
The banquet has a seating capacity of 40 tables on the ground floor and a total of 55 tables at the newly renovated banquet hall on the second floor. On the third floor, there are up to 10 private rooms for those who would love a little privacy while entertaining guests and clients.
We were served a 9 course dinner from their brand new menu which boasts on different types of seafood. It was a meal fit for a King!
Two Varieties Sea Garoupa (RM 120) - pre order
This dish was the main star of the night! Such an artistic presentation for a dish!
This dish comes with garoupa fish fillet which is marinated before deep frying it and serving it with some potato shreds and salad sauce.
The other style of cooking is deep frying the thick and jelly like skin of the fish which is then served with some wasabi and mayo for that burst of flavours! Each fish weighs approximately 1.5 kg and above, so you don't have to worry about the serving size at all.
Fried Prawns with Potato Shred & Salad Sauce (RM 80)
Succulent freshwater prawns, marinated only with salt and pepper is served with some fried potato shreds and salad sauce. I find this dish extremely interesting as you can consume everything served on the plate.
Even the yellow layer underneath the prawns is edible. Actually, it is the mango infused jelly which really goes well with the prawns. Try it out!
Drunken Prawns in Claypot (Seasonal price)
This was my favourite dish of the night. Looking at the humongous amount of prawn roe, is enough to make me salivate even as I capture the pictures of the dish. This juicy gigantic freshwater prawns are cooked using three types of wine; yellow wine, Shao Hsing wine and rice wine.
The flesh was tender and sweet, the perfect texture of what a freshwater prawn should taste like!
Padi Field Crab Rice (RM 48-S, RM 68-B)
This rice dish was a good accompaniment to the endless amount of seafood we had before. The concept of this dish is similar to the Hainan chicken rice. Freshwater padi field crab meat were cooked together with the rice which is wrapped with the lotus leaf.
Some of the ingredients which were used to cook the rice are butter, garlic, shallots and lemongrass for that added fragrance. However, I find that it isn't oily and definitely not sinful for those who are worried about having rice.
Fried Pork Ribs with Black Pepper Sauce
RM 5 for each rib and additional RM 4 for each extra piece
Braised Kampung Chicken with Pig Tendon (RM 45-S, RM 70-B)
Four Varieties Vegetable with Salt and Pepper (RM 18-S, RM 25-M, RM 35-L)
This dish is perfect for vegetarians. With four different types of vegetables; punpkin, bitter gourd, lotus root and brinjal in this, its all in one wholesome vegetable dish. I enjoyed the difference in texture of the vegetables whereby it is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Rather addictive and tasty, this one is good with beer!
Lemongrass Jelly (RM 3.90)
A dessert perfect to wash down the heavy meal! I love this refreshing dessert whereby lemongrass is boiled for about 2 hours and infused into the jelly.
The large collection of wines in their own private cellar upstairs. Perhaps you can have some wine pairing with your meal. The wine steward will be ready to assist you in choosing the right wine to go with your meal.
