Paksu Seafood @ Berserah, Kuantan


Heyya..
During the recent weekend, I went to Teluk Chempedak for a beach break.. As far as food is concerned, in East coast of Malaysia, there are lots of good food you may find such as seafood, nasi minyak with ayam masak merah, udang celup tepung, etc..
Truthfully, it seems my blog has turned into a food-review blog..  Previously, I dedicated this blog only for my BMW GSA bike and ride reports.. Nowadays, I would include food review as they would increase the traffic for my blog.. it seems everyone would dig for food than bikes.. Hahaa..
Alright, back to food review in Kuantan.. One of my favourite seafood restaurants in Kuantan is Paksu Seafood, located along Berserah beach.. At first I thought it is Malay local cuisine restaurant but it is a Chinese seafood restaurant with the name of Paksu.. Guaranteed! We took a drive from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan, which took only 2 and half hours.. the traffic along Karak Highway and LPT Highway was very smooth.. 
Although I have been to Paksu once, I had a wonderful seafood dinner there previously but I did not have the opportunity to have its Crabs in Sweet Chili sauce..
This time, I ordered Crab in Sweet Chili with fried bread, Claypot Taufu Beancurd with Veggies, Steamed Tilapia in Thai gravy and Sea Cucumber with Broccoli..


The service at Paksu Seafood restaurant was very fast and efficient.. Although there were lots of big groups of customers and also tourists who came in 3 tourist-buses, Paksu staff still managed to serve us food in time.. It was pouring rain in that evening.. most customers were dining indoor, hence it was a bit crowded in the restaurant..
Impressively, the dishes arrived within 15 minutes of waiting..
The Sweet Chili Crab with fried bread and Claypot Beancurd dishes came first.. I was very delighted to have the crabs being served early.. Normally in other seafood restaurants, they would serve crabs as the last dish and by that time, my stomach would have been already full..
The Claypot beancurd’s gravy was perfect.. it has thick chicken stock based and when it is cooked with seafood and veggies, they enhanced the chicken stock flavour into the next level.. Speaking of the beancurd, it was soft, delicate and it melted in the mouth.. such a comfort food! Oooh La La..
While we were about to start tackling the crab with fried bread, the rest of the orders came; the Steamed Talapia in Thai gravy and Sea Cucumber with Broccoli..
I dipped the gravy of Sweet Chili crab with fried bread.. Initially the bread is a steamed bun but then it is fried, hence, it is crispy on the outside but steamy soft in the inside.. The softness of the bun absorbs the sweet chili crab gravy easily and the taste was absolutely Ooh la la.. How about the crab? At first, Paksu Seafood Restaurant does not provide crab clamp, hence, the chef has cracked the shell into many spots to assist customers to crack the shell easily.. And by doing so, the crab meat has loss its juices as the crab meat has absorbed the gravy.. On the other hand, it is easier to eat the crab with less effort to eat it.. Most seafood restaurants would provide the crab clamp so the crab retains its meat juices..
The Steamed Talapia was cooked perfectly.. Normally, I always order Siakap Fish but I wana try Red Talapia this time.. its flesh was very soft, tender and fresh.. Every time I have seafood meal, I would choose the fish to be steamed instead of deep fried.. by steaming the fish, you can taste the fresh flavour of the fish.. The Tilapia was cooked in Thai gravy.. Initially, the gravy tastes similar to Tom Yam and Asam Pedas but the gravy is slightly thick instead of Tom Yam broth type.. It tastes slightly sweet & sourish and it has some spiciness and tang flavour just like tom yam.. The taste? Absolutely delicious and amazing!!!
The total bill was RM170.00 with coconut juice for 3 persons.. Would I come here again? Definitely!!

HooRahh!!
