Day 1 – 30 Dec 08 (Night)
After the short walk at the beach, we hold tight on our schedule and paid a visit to Langkawi’s Cable Car.
The cable car ride is priced at Rm 15 for those who hold while Rm 25 for those who are not.
Up we went~
Up up up, and we finally saw the sea.
Next destination — we headed up to the second stop where it connected to the bridge. What a magnificent structure, isn’t it?!
At the bridge
At the cable car centre where tickets are sold, there are some striking buildings around and there is the beautifully planned garden.
We saw Dang Wangi too. Hoho ~
We headed to the Kuah Town for dinner. After surveying, we finally settled ourselves at Rootian Seafood Restaurant.
We left the food ordering task to ah dred. Let’s see what he came up with.
Firstly we had the Seaweed Fish Ball Soup 紫菜鱼丸汤 which consisted of lots of fish balls and a handful of seaweed. That was the fish ball soup that you definitely can prepare by yourself at home.
As for vegetables, we had stir fried kai lan 清炒芥兰 which was full with wok hei. Not bad not bad.
Also tit ban tofu 铁板豆腐 which was very good and flavorful. (Sorry for the blur photos. My friends just couldn’t wait to fork their food and I had to capture photos fast).
We also had pork ribs 妈蜜骨 which tasted good, tender and juicy and the serving for each dishes were quite large.
Finally was the fish we ordered. Fresh Steamed sek ban 清蒸石斑鱼. It was very large, incredibly large. When it was served, there were the ‘oh-oh… this is so not good’ signal in our mind. It might cost us a fortune for this meal (honestly, we were lil’ tight on our budget). The fish was fresh and its meat was tender. Fresh fish was best done by simple steam with chopped spring onions, sliced ginger, soya sauce… this was really good and my friends even jilat the fish bone.
Told ya it was really not a good sign with this big fresh fish. When the bill came…
清蒸石斑鱼 Rm 90
铁板豆腐 Rm 22
紫菜鱼丸汤 Rm 30
清炒芥兰 Rm 14
妈蜜骨 Rm 40
Total Rm 210!!!
Gosh… just for the 9 of us (as one of our friends had his own packed stuff) but the food here tasted good.
It was really costly to dine in Langkawi, Anywhere in this island. This bill made our heart sore. Some even *&%^$# in their hearts. What could we do?! Next time better ask for the price before ordering the meals.
Our targets — watching tight in next coming meals. *&^%$@*
