Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant @ Taman Seputeh

    rome and family

    Well my Korea trip few months back was fun while it lasted; met a lot of nice people along the way so it was great. Guess one of the most prominent aspects of the trip was Korean hospitality. These are the nice people that left us making a vow to spread the word about the how the very fascinating Korea and her people.

    We knew that it is a great time to repay their hospitality when ajashi (uncle) made a pit stop at Malaysia to see his son. Victor suggested dinner at Robson Heights, well even the celebrity floggers raved about them, so Robson Heights it is.

    pork rib


    The first dish was their signature pork ribs (yat zhi guat) with deliciously sweet and tangy sauce were melt in your mouth tender. Oh my god, we were having a great time gobbling on the fall-off-the-bone ribs. When I mean fall off the bone, they do really fall off with a few shakes.


    butter squid


    Deep fried butter squid (Nai Yao Sotong). I like their way of serving where a generous amount of chicken floss was sprinkled on top of the dish. The squids, encased in a light batter were slightly chewy but we enjoyed every bits of it. The texture was the fun part I guess. You can’t go wrong with butterladen food and high-carb indulgence; nor can anything deep fried taste bad after all.


    herbal chicken 2

    Herbal chicken was served in a Chinese crock pot within minutes. The chicken was surprisingly moist and tender after long hours of soaking in the herbal concoction.


    soon hok fish

    Steamed Marble Goby (Soon Hok) is the star dish of the night. Fresh from the tank, the meat is lean and moist with a mild flavor. It costs a whopping RM 140 per kg but believe me, it is promisingly delicious.


    mixed vegetables with macadamia nuts



    The obligatory greens – Mixed Vegetables with Macadamia Nuts. Vegetables such as sweet peas, asparagus, arrowheads (nga ku), lotus roots, celeries and deep fried macadamia nuts are stir fry in a smoky soy garlic. The topping of flaky dried squids gives it an extra flavor and texture too. It actually gives eating green the devious way because it feels like munching on some crunchy snack food.

    It was an evening filled with laughter, credits to ajashi’s sense of humour. Communication is not a problem over here because he’s not a typical ajashi with monosyllabic English ability; in fact he speaks fluent English.

    The total bill? RM 350++. The great deal of time spent talking and catching up with each other? Priceless. (thx Meena!)
