Uncle Lim's at Pangkor Laut: A very different concept
The whole concept of this restaurant is totally different. There is no menu as such. You choose what you want (from a list of ingredients) and how you want it cooked.
Initially I found the concept a little intimidating, as I usually like to be inspired by descriptions of food before I order, but once the waiter points me in the right direction, the whole thing flows.
We choose a selection of dishes: Spicy chicken with cashew nuts, beef with chilli and garlic, tiger prawns, steamed rice and watercress soup
Favorite Dish: The chilli and Garlic Beef is very tasty indeed, not so spice that it burns your mouth but hot enough to be interesting.

any of the outlets: Coconut Galore
call it a dessert or a drink - it sure does taste BEST - esplly nice young ones...nd chilled ones. It is yummy to sip from straw and then use a spoon to dig into the young white silky pulp. One is never enough....
but if you have problem with wind in the stomach - one is enough.
near the Emerald Bay: indian food
Here you can get all kinds of food; pasta, locl noodles, but the best I tried was their Indian platter, which has rice, pappadam chips, beef dry curry, fried fish, and spicy prawns. cabbage and pickled cucumber It was very very delicious.
Uncle Lim: frresh seafood Chinese style
My favourite is the fish maw - fish stomach soup. It taste tomato base and slightly sour, and drink with a dash of black vinegar. It has lots of chopped seafood, bamboo shoots, mushrooms. It is a thick soup. somewhat like the szechuan soup.
also must have are the deep fried fried soft shell crab, special bean curd, steamed large pomfret fish in special soy sauce. any kind of fresh greens stir fry with scallops.
Uncle Lim's: Wonderful seafood !!
