9 June 2011: Nong & Jimmy Thai Seafood BBQ is actually 10 mins walk from my house. I tried it once few years ago and I don't feel like want to go again. However, today, my father suggested to have our dinner there, since it's the nearest available restaurant from my house.

It's a big food stall with open-space dining area and open-space car park next to it. The car park is always full while the dining area is always packed, causing it to be hot and stuffy, especially near the BBQ area. I know this restaurant is famous for their cheap Thai seafood BBQ, but I’m not really a Thai seafood BBQ lover. Hence, here’s what we tried…

  • Fried Rice (RM5) -> Tastes average. Prawns are decent an fresh. Reasonable price. I love the generous portion of fried egg, merely because I'm a hardcore egg lover.
  • Thai BBQ 'Kampung' Fish (RM12) -> This is the price for 2 'Kampung' fish, not 1 (as shown in photo above). My father has already eaten 1 of the fish before I could manage to snap the photo of it. Taste average. I don't really like it mainly because I don't enjoy eating 'Kampung' fish. Besides, I don't know how to appreciate Thai BBQ because it's dry and tasteless.
  • Thai Style Steamed Siakap (RM32) -> Obviously overpriced for Siakap in this type of dining environment. Taste average. Nothing impressive. Chong Yuan Seafood Restaurant serves similar dish that tastes much better at significantly lower price.
  • Stir-fried Kangkung (RM9) -> Overpriced. Taste average. I don't understand why the sauce is so dark in colour. Is it soy sauce or it's the colour of the 'wok'?
In conclusion, I don't really like the experience of dining there. I won't go again unless my father suggests to go somewhere really near again...
