Song Yen Seafood 松园海鲜

Recently I got to know an economic chu char stall from Food Paradise. Song Yen Seafood is located at the food court opposite to Kayu Nasi Kandar and Hai Lam Restaurant, Bukit Jambul. You just need to turn into the small road directly opposite to Kayu Nasi Kandar, and you will see this Song Yen Seafood stall on your left. It occupies 2 outlets of the food court.

We didn't ask for recommendation, just randomly select 3 dishes that we like.


First, we ordered for their Seafood Otak-otak which is served in coconut shell. It was a huge serving for 2 of us. Lots of Kadok leaves with squids, prawns and fish meat. It has very little gravy compare to the one you find in Siriwan. It tastes ok with the fragrant of Kadok leaves and fresh seafood.


Next, we chose to have their home made tofu cooked in Thai style. The tofu is soft and fragrant. Garnished with onions, Thai chili sauce and mint leave. This is another simple yet appetizing dish.


Also, not to forget about some greens. We opt for sweet potato leaves stir fried with sambal and prawns. This is the common vegetable that I used to have when we dine out. Reason? It contains no pesticide. So, safe to consume. :-)

Besides the chuchar, you can also try their char hor fun. Lots of people order that too. However, this place does not suitable for those who'd like to go in big groups. Their table setting is the typical type of food court table. A rectangle table with four chairs fixed. Of course, they spare 1 or 2 round tables if their customers have more than 4 people. I think is still not enough.

Overall, the dinner just cost us RM27.60. Their operating hours is from 6pm to 11pm and closed on Mondays.

Wow.. interesting to see seafood otak-otak served in coconut shell. Here in Indonesia, otak-otak is considered as snack than real dish.

Usually the otak is wrapped in leaves but this one in a coconut shell should add in more flavour to the otak...must try it.

CK Lam, taste wise it is not so outstanding, but the serving is huge.

Dora, me too. I like sweet potato leaves. Sometimes, I just stir fry with garlic. Light and easy.
