Like it’s her birthday…

Well, it most certainly WAS her birthday, my sister’s, on the 13th of January and she took us all out for dinner here…

MJ Hu Seafood Restoran

I had never been here before but I had seen a foodie friend’s Instagram posts on Facebook so of course, I was keen on going to give it a try.

The curry fish (RM60.00)…

…was very good, very spicy and the lovely gravy went absolutely well with rice. I did not think much of the fish though – I think it was a red snapper.

The butter prawns (RM40.00)…

Butter prawns

…were very nicely done too and the crustaceans were very firm, very fresh but this is one dish that one can get at most any other place and some can do it just as well and it was the same with the tofu dish…

Minced meat tofu

…that we also had that night.

The Thai-style midin

…on the other hand, was in a class of its own and the strips of mango in it sure were an added bonus. Everyone loved it to bits!

However, the star of the evening had got to be their specialty, the pig’s tail (RM25.00)…

Pig's tail

I never had that before and I could not believe how nice that was – I loved it so much and I sure would want to go back here again for more.Β  We were joking about it that night – how a pig only had one tail and a very short one at that and how many pig’s tails would be needed to cook one dish. That was hilarious!

It was a lovely dinner, indeed – I certainly would want to go back there again to see what other nice dishes they have on their menu. Thanks so much to my sis for the treat and a very Happy Birthday once again – God bless always and may all your dreams come true. Cheers!!!

MJ HU SEAFOOD RESTAURANT(2.291971, 111.834740) is located along Lorong Mahsuri 2, the second shop on the left after Kuching Cafe, opposite Bateras Supermarket.

  1. Ooolala, food looks so good. If you were laughing at the pig’s tail, imagine William and my horror when we went for our wedding dinner food tasting to see ‘fish lips’ in the menu. We were thinking how many fish will be needed to accommodate 25 tables. Haha.

    I love fish lips…cooked like sharks’ fins soup. Long ago, nobody ate it and it was so cheap, now it is as expensive as sharks’ fins. Must eat more – collagen, will keep you looking young and beautiful. LOL!!!

  2. All the dishes looks so good. Love them to bits. I like to boil soup with pig’s tail, peanuts and lotus root.

    Happy Belated Birthday to your dear sister….πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽˆ

    Thank you!

    I read somewhere that when it comes to the Chinese, no part of the animal is spared but this is the first time I’ve heard of people eating the tail and I actually ate it myself! LOL!!

  3. Happy belated birthday to your sister! What a scrumptious meal! I like the Thai style midin best. The pig tail dish sounds interesting but I am not motivated enough to eat pig skin as I believe the tail is mostly skin and collagen-goodness.

    Thank you. Yes, only a bit of meat but I enjoyed it very much.

  4. What a lovely birthday celebration with your sister. I would enjoy all those dishes. The pig’s tail too! hee..hee…

    Yes, it sure was a lovely dinner and nothing beats getting together to celebrate a happy occasion!

  5. Red snapper fish are known to be fresh without the fishy taste unlike song fish. I don’t mind soup cooked with pig’s tail but i will not eat the tail.

    It was so yummy. I do enjoy ox tail too, both so very nice. Red snapper is common here, cheaper but not a favourite – lots of other nicer fish.
