Uncle Martin has been raving almost Da Zhong Hwa Seafood Saunaboat eating seat close Sutera Mall inward Johor Bahru. I was eager to effort out DZH , specially the "omega fish" which Uncle Martin kept telling us about.
DZH calls itself a "saunaboat" restaurant. The consider is to create nutrient yesteryear steaming it higher upwards a pot of rice porridge. The natural juices from the fresh nutrient trickle downward into the pot of porridge below every bit it is beingness steam cooked. After eating the steamed dishes , customers complete their repast alongside the porridge total of natural essence.
This was Uncle Martin's 4th fourth dimension at DZH but the showtime fourth dimension for me. DZH is compact inside. Furnishings are unproblematic but sturdy in addition to comfortable. Each tabular array is fitted alongside a special electrical steamer.
I similar it that DZH serves alive seafood. There were the local staples similar mud crabs , Soon Hock , Grouper , La La clams also every bit exotic imports similar Alaska King crabs , Maine lobsters etc.
These are the "omega fish" which Uncle Martin was telling us about. They are truly Malaysian Jade Perch 翡翠鲈 , a local pond raised fish known for its omega-3 rich fat.
First dish was 沙白 clams. The staff volition produce all the cooking , in addition to then nosotros tin dismiss but relax in addition to bask ourselves 😄
Woohoo... the 沙白 clams were real clean. In its tender soft chewy flesh were briny sweetness natural juices. Yummy.
Next upwards , alive tiger prawns.
Service was excellent. The friendly staff peeled the prawns for us in addition to fifty-fifty asked if nosotros would similar the prawns alongside heads on or off.
We opted to bring the heads on , in addition to then that nosotros tin dismiss suck out the creamy juices alongside all the crustacean flavours from within the caput 😋
The much anticipated Malaysian Jade Perch. Our swimming fish was netted out of the tank in addition to swiftly sliced. The omega-3 rich fatty was scrapped in addition to heaped inward the oculus of the steaming tray.
The Jade Perch's white flesh is tender in addition to sweetness but has a rather pronounced earthly gustation feature of pond raised fish.
The omega-3 rich fatty is lite , soft in addition to felt similar fragile juicy fruit sacs but it has an earthly taste.
Shanghai Hairy Crabs (mitten crabs) are available at Da Zhong Hwa eating seat every bit it is inward flavor inward Communist People's Republic of China now.
Not much meat but the creamy flesh , gut in addition to roe brand Hairy Crab a pop delicacy. It's RM56 a pop - in addition to then , unless your craving for Hairy Crab drives you lot crazy , teach it when you lot are inward Shanghai where it (non Yangcheng lake crabs) is available at RMB5 (RM3) each.
Local Mud Crab.
The meaty hook was filled alongside briny sweetness. Yums!
Some obligatory greens in addition to vegetables to consummate our repast similar adept boys in addition to girls 😄
好料沉底 or the "best materials sinks to the bottom" every bit they tell inward Hokkien. The porridge below the steamy tray catches all the natural juices every bit they trickle downward piece the seafood is beingness steam cooked. We added a dyad of salted duck egg yolk into the porridge.
The porridge has layers of savoury sweetness flavours from all the center triggered downward from the steamed seafood. The salted egg yolk in addition to dried oyster added to a greater extent than savoury layers to the porridge. It's a nifty agency to circular upwards our scrumptious meal.
DZH offers this robust savoury sweetness spicy sambal chili which nosotros all enjoyed. I similar this sambal chili which is loaded alongside dried shrimps but I didn't role it alongside my steamed nutrient every bit I similar to gustation the food's natural favours without whatsoever distractions.
Our nib came to RM497.50 for v of us.
