The prawns are seasoned, coated with a light batter before deep frying to a yellowish-red sunset hue. The deep fried prawns looks delicious after frying, these crunchy gems are then tossed into the bubbling tamarind sauce for a beautiful caramelised glaze. These crunchy prawns are sweet tasting and pairs well with the sour undertones from the tamarind sauce and some serious heat from the crisp red chilli pepper seeds.
Steamed Seabass with Soy Sauce ($22) is a whole freshly steamed butterflied seabass, drizzled with soy sauce and sesame oil and topped with aromatic fresh cilantro, fried ginger and chilli. The sweet and savoury sauce does not overpower the natural sweet flavour of the flesh. Seabass is loved for its delicate and tender flesh.
