I’m wondering…

If you’re wondering why this place…

Wondering Seafood Restaurant Miri

…is called Wondering, well, actually, I’m wondering that same thing too! LOL!!!

My cousin and his missus insisted on taking us out for dinner on our first night in Miri and that was how we ended up here with one of their daughters and one of their sons, 7 of us altogether.

The sweet and sour pork was really very good…

…and I loved their sizzling tofu with minced meat in a hot plate…

The belacan (dried prawn paste) that they used for their fried midin


…was not quite to my liking but we sure enjoyed their salted egg fried lotus root slices…

I hear we can get these in Sibu too but so far, I have only come across pumpkin done this way.

This looked like it was their signature dish – most everybody was having it, their curry fish…

I loved the gravy but no, to me, it was not exactly curry but something like nyonya asam curry with a slightly sourish taste. Personally, I like this more than curry per se.

That sure was an awesome dinner and a wonderful start to our holiday in Miri, thank you so much, Raphael & Amy – we must go out some place for dinner the next time you two are in town!

WONDERING SEAFOOD RESTAURANT (4.387101, 113.984213) is located at Shoplot 1433, Block 10, Centre Point Commercial Centre Phase 2, Off Jalan Kubu.

  1. All the dishes looks pretty good and decent. The salted egg fried lotus slices is something new to me too.

    Lovely dinner!

  2. Your photo of the sweet and sour pork does convey the yum factor. Nice shot. I haven’t come across salted egg yolk lotus root yet. I’d really love that if I ever see it on the menu.

    Lotus root chips are quite common. Maybe if we dip it in salted egg sauce, the taste will come pretty close.
    Thanks for the compliment. Every dog has its day. Lucky shot! LOL!!!

  3. Very flavourful dishes with tasty gravy to get through many bowls of rice. Sourish assam curry tastes more refreshing than heavy santan curry. Very thoughtful of Raphael and Amy!

    Yes, they’re very nice people.

    I would agree with you about the curries – I think assam curry is more compatible with seafood, the heavy curry better for meat.

  4. I want to try that salted egg lotus root slices which is something new to me. Looks like the trip to miri is a foodie trip hee hee. All the dishes look good.

    For me, a trip anywhere is a foodie trip, a food tour!
