Brolly Restaurant and Bar, Menara Felda

Brolly Restaurant and Bar Menara Felda

It has been quite some times I went “crabbing”. Yes Crabbing …. my personal terms with my gang to go eat crabs. Penang kias love our crabs a lot and usually we just BBQ it over the fire and a pinch of salt to make it taste better. That is in Bukit Tambun seafood village. But now I am in KL and Selangor area and to eat crabs are very hard to determine which restaurant serves the best. For the past I have tried a couple of it which they are famous with the salted egg yolks version

I recently was introduced to SS2 Crab Factory that serves Lousiana Boil type that are having special sauce to go along with boiled crabs. But I never been there till I went to their second outlet after the first success one. The second one are located at Menara Felda, Platinum Park KL. A stone throw away from KL best photography spot of the Twin Tower KL CC and Menara Maxis. From far you will be greeted by a Mini Bus parked in front of the restaurant which turned into a bar that serves some kick ass range of cocktail.

Brolly Restaurant and Bar are a perfect spot to hang around while waiting for the traffic jam to subside after 6pm around KLCC area. It is not a good idea to go and waste time in the jam as which ever angle you go also will get stuck. So why not sit back and chill out and take your dinner here.

Under a roof there are several type of foods which combines a crab, pizza, fried chicken wing, salad bar and wide range of great cocktails to greet you.

After push the door, I thought I entered a car workshop as there’s an old Datsun (Now known as Nissan) car hung upside down on the ceiling. All the walls were decorate by basic sport rims gives you a very sophisticated yet comfy ambiance without the dirty lubricants on the floor.

The hand wash basin also were made from tyre and the water tap are petrol pumps.

Further in there are a wall of old black records which make the place feels like Hard Rock Cafe but they are not related to them. Just a simple and nice decor. Since I was there to crabbing, for sure I will checkout which is my victims of the night.

All the seafood mostly were air flown alive weekly to the restaurant.

LIVE snails which usually serve as escargot still moving in the aquarium.

This is how fresh the oyster in Brolly. A pop cost you RM12 but minimum they serve half dozen. It is the juiciest and sweetest oyster you can find in Klang Valley. All the oyster still alive preserved in temp and water quality controlled aquariums.

Say hi to the Big Brown Crabs air flown weekly to Brolly. This fella is the chosen one.

While waiting for our food to be prepared we ordered some cocktails and bar foods to start the evening.

This is one of their signature drinks. Beergarita (RM30) where a combination of fruit juice with beer. It is served with the beer bottle upside down into the glass. While the foam on top of the glass were actually ice blended with fruit juice like peach or pineapple. It taste very good as the juice remove the bitterness of the beer while maintain the gassy feel of the beer that resemble a soft drink. Go slow with this as you do not want to pass out with your first glass.

High Ballrus – A Japanese inspired whiskey mixed with fruit juice drink which taste more like a mocktail than a cocktail.

Keropok Lekor and house special dipping sauce

Fried calamari tentacles with dried chilli which I would vote the best bar food that can get along with any drinks on the bar.

onion flower

Another bar food highly recommended is their onion flower (RM18) which is a deep fried big battered onion and dip with special brown sauce.

After all those deep fried stuff need to be balance with some greens. A wide range of special salads are there for you to choose as a starter.

Spinach & Feta Melon Salad -RM22

Grilled Caesar Salad -RM15

Fried Cencaluk Chicken Wings

Fried fish cakes

Smoked Duck Yakitori

Garlic Escargot – RM24 for half dozen

The crabs were served not long after we place the order. Their signature flavour were the Southern Bank and follow by the Butter Garlic flavour. For first timer who visits Crab Factory SS2 or Brolly for crabbing should go with their Southern Bank. Southern bank is a spicy tangy flavour sauce that best to go along with any seafoods served. If you don’t want to eat crab, you can go for mussels, prawns or even lobsters. Price are displayed clearly on the menu and you can decide from there. I would suggest you to go for the MEAT CRAB for a start.

Range of sauces : mustard, garlic butter, garlic aoili, zesty lemon, signature southern bang and jamba-jamba

Mussels

For the seafoods, you can top it up with potatoes, chicken sausages, king mushrooms, corn, enoki mushrooms and button mushrooms

If you are a meaty person, there are steaks on the menu as well. Not to mention also their pizza menu that are different from the other restaurants in town.

Grilled Beef Sirloin -RM34

Thai Beef Guava Salad -RM28

Hawaiian -RM23

A dinner won’t be complete without the company of desserts. Here at Brolly they surprise us with :-

Ribena Poached Pear, Rocky Road, Chunky Peanut Butter Granola and Creme Brulee

Breakfast Eating Out in Sandakan, Lot No.8 at Bridge No.7 Sim Sim Water Village

Sim Sim water village is the place where you find all sorts of seafoods to eat. The settlement by the sea is been there for ages since early days Sandakan was formed. We had our dinner there the first night when we touch down in Sandakan and back again the next day morning for breakfast.

To find the place is just along one long stretch road.

All the location were marked base on which bridge number. In this case, this eatery is located at Bridge 8 which can be seen from the road.

This is the view from the roadside.

The kopitiam serve some dim sum which localised that suits the taste of the locals. Majority of their customers were locals more than tourist.

Braised chicken feet.

Mixed Fish Paste Ball Soup

This is basically Yong Tau Fu like breakfast. There are fresh fish paste and some wrapped with pig skin and then cook with clear soup. All the soup has a common base and cooked using the fishes.

Sandakan Chee Cheong Fun

The chee cheong fun here just use dark soya sauce and topped with fried shallots. However the flat noodle is not as smooth as the from Penang. The texture slightly rougher and thickness double the ones from Penang. The dark soya sauce are pretty sweet for my liking.

Beef Noodle

Basically you can choose your favorite noodle to go along with the beef briskets. The soup are slightly peppery and not as strong herbal taste compare to the one from KL. Normally beef briskets are cooked for a very long time and continuously cook since they start operating.

Sandakan Pei Tan Kau (Dumpling with pork and century egg)

The super star breakfast in Sandakan. It resembles a normal sui kau but it is packed with pork and century eggs were added.

Prawn Noodle

Curry Mee with yong taufu.

Sandakan Spring (Tan Kong Mee) Noodle with deep fried pork

Another super star of Sandakan breakfast that similar to wan tan mee with added fried nam yue pork. It is known as Spring noodle for its springy texture. I find that the noodle are not as springy as it claims. The nam yue pork is not as good compared to the one in Sandakan Central Market Food Court’s version.

Koey Teow Soup with Deep Fried Pork

This also similar to the one I reviewed at the Central Markets. This has Chinese Cruller added and is not that suitable to be added. Maybe I am pampered by tasting the best when I touch down on day 1 before trying this. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FAMOUS ORIGINAL HOME MADE KOEY TEOW WITH DEEP FRIED PORK

Fish head noodle

The fish are fresh and the soup are cooked with evaporated milk and salted vege. The fish used were either garoupa or marble goby since it is easily available here. This bowl of noodle if eat in KL, it would cost easily RM35 or not RM50 with the current market price.

Roast pork from Winky’s Dad butcher shop in the market.

The breakfast place basically do not have much pork dishes. Since Winky (Sheraton Event Manager) know that I am a pork lover, she brought her dad’s roast pork for us to try. It was good and juicy with a perfect lean and fats at the right proportion. Thanks again for letting us try.
