11 Affordable fresh seafood restaurants in Kuala Lumpur where you can feast on crabs, lobsters, prawns and other shellfish!
1. Feast on fresh crabs, oysters and more off the table – Just Seafood MY
Inspired by a popular eating style in Louisiana, USA, Just Seafood MY in Sunway Giza Mall wants to bring the joys of carefree feasting to Malaysians – eating fresh seafood ‘off-the-table’ using our own bare hands.
Although eating with our hands is nothing new to us, Just Seafood MY throws in a twist by using Cajun spices in their dishes and mixing it up with their own recipe to bring out unique flavours. Coming from first-hand experience, this shell-out was better than most I’ve come across thus far. I highly recommend this!2. Seafood feast right at home! – Shell Out
If you haven’t heard of this popular seafood joint, you might have been living under the sea for too long! 😉
Founded by a husband-and-wife duo, these two lovebirds took their love for seafood and turned it into a seafood venture that has now grown into one of Malaysia’s most recognisable names in the food scene. Their finger-licking sets will get you addicted, especially their Cajun style seafood combo.
And now, you can have a taste of the hype right at home!
