Seafood Supper

The perutbesi clique and frens where out looking for late night supper last Saturday. It was already 12.10am when we went from one restaurant to another, inquiring if they still serve ‘ikan bakar’ (bbq fish) at that hour. Our first stop was Phuket at Padang Lalang, Kuantan. They still take up orders but they are closing at 1am. Thus, we decided to go across the road to Santai Restaurant & Cafe. Santai is indeed very nice and comfy looking. They open till 3am but the menu is just so-so. Santai serves dishes like keoy teow soup, fried rice, tom yum etc. They have steam fish instead of ikan bakar. The price is also slightly higher but it is a great place for drinks and chit-chatting.

Finally, we decided not to be choosy as our tummies are growling of hunger. We opt for Restaurant Tanjung, which is just beside Santai. Tanjung is suppose to close at 12am but they still take up last minute order if there are requests from midnight eaters like us 🙂 Tanjung offers variety of fresh seafood and they even have bbq chicken wing there.

    Ruth to ggwfung: Laksa ain’t a supper type of food- certainly not! Somehow we just felt like having some ikan bakar, & being 12am, the only place for food was Tg Lumpur in Kuantan!

    Those pictures of the seafood look great and tasty. Maybe you could post some contact details for the restaurant?

    We’re not too sure ’bout the details for the restaurant. But we heard from a friend who visited this place again 2 months ago & said that the standard of food there dropped! How disappointing. We’ll find more places for better seafood!
