Shrimp Steals the Spotlight

Not surprisingly, shrimp steals the spotlight here, hefty ones prepared in styles including buttered (our pick) or with pepper, garlic, sesame oil or lemon. Each plate costs RM60-RM65, comprising what seems like more than a dozen juicy crustaceans.Golden Coast Shrimp_3

Marvelous Mantou

Marvelous ‘mantou’ bread to mop up the sauce. Hot and fluffy-fresh, with a golden-crisp exterior.Golden Coast Shrimp_4

Limited Menu

The menu’s limited for now, but black pepper crab and spiral-shell sea snails also feature on it.Golden Coast Shrimp_5

Bonus Stop: Hokkaido Summer Food Fair

Bonus shrimp and seafood stop: The Hokkaido summer food fair that started its run this week at Isetan KLCC’s FoodMarket (operating July 12-22).Golden Coast Shrimp_6

Everything here’s expensive, but the RM50 for rice topped with a bounty of sea urchin, prawn, salmon roe and flying fish roe supplies a whole lot of satisfaction. Golden Coast Shrimp_7

Hokkaido ramen with scallops, prawns and corn clocks in at over RM40; two can share this. Golden Coast Shrimp_8
