Coconut Flower Restaurant @ Teluk Gong, Port Klang

Just a moderate drive between 30 mins to 1 hour (depending of traffic) from city, we headed to a seafood restaurant named Coconut Flower located in Teluk Gong nearby Port Klang. Many visitors seems to be visiting this restaurant as the place is quite packed at night. We arrived just in time as the crowd was moving in and tried some of their recommended dishes through other blog reviews.

Tidbits (RM 1.70)
 Firstly, tidbits were served that resembles fish crackers.

Coconut Tomyam Prawn (RM28.00)
One of their signature dishes here, would be this steamed prawns in tom yam broth bowled in a coconut casing. This was certainly a great flavour as the rich seafood broth was thick and flavourful. Even the coconut itself still has its meat on its wall. A highly recommended dish. 

Salted Egg Yolk Crab (RM 38.00)
Nothing is ever complete in Coconut Flower without crabs! We settle for this salted egg yolk coated crab dish. This deep fried seafood delicacy was a little dry but easier to crack open their skulls as it must have soften during cooking. You can really taste the saltiness and at the same time, the freshness of the crab meat itself. 

Lala Bihun (RM 10.00)
 According to other bloggers, Lala bihun seems to be popular here. However, we find that this dish itself was quite ordinary with just the additions of clams into the plate. Flavourwise, taste the same as a normal plate of bihun.

Vegetables (RM 10.00)
 Never forget your vegetables! Cook freshly and just right.

Fried Oyster (RM 12.00)
Lastly, we gobbled down this platter of fried oyster served with chili sauce. The generous portion of oysters enveloped in the cooked egg was simply divine. Just do not like it was a wee bit overcooked though.

Thai Coconut (RM 4.50) (That is not the way to open!)
 Quench you thirst with some Thai coconut drinks!
