    Fishermans Cove: A seafood lovers dream

    by grets Written Aug 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant hiding behind the trees on the right

    Said to be the best restaurant in the resort, although very good, we didn't think it was patch on Dinner on the Rocks.

    There is a choice of fish and seafood - all freshly caught that day - and cooking methods.

    For starter we have prawn and mago in filo pastry with a chilli dip and lobster bisque.

    Neither of us being real fish lovers, we both choose stir fried beef with black pepper sauce.

    Dessert: Mango and pineapple strudel and apple tart.

    Being my birthday, David has ordered a cake for me, but it never arrives. The table next to ours do get one, and we share theirs. I'm glad mine didn't arrive, as I didn't like it very much (that may not be the fault of the cake - I'm not very fond of cakes)

    Favorite Dish: Stir fried beef with black pepper sauce - very tender and absolutely delicious.

    Royal Bay Beach Club, Pangkor Laut: Casual elegance

    by grets Updated Aug 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pool

    The bar/cafe by the pool serves lunches only and has a shortish snack menu. It's the first time I've seen a pool bar with starched linen tablecloths and napkins. Excellent service. The second day the waiter knows my name and greets me with the comment: "A Tiger Beer I think Mrs Howard?" Have I got a reputation as a drinker already?

    Limited menu with things like crab with chilli dip, pizza, fish & chips, burgers and bruchettas.

    Some evenings they have live musicians there, they are very good and the music is not so loud as to be a nuisance if you want an early night.

    Favorite Dish: The steak sandwich is the best I've ever had!

    The steak is 1.5cm thick and I am asked how I want it cooked! It is served with potato wedges.

    Also the pineapple relish served with the burgers

    Dinner at the Rocks: A great experience

    by grets Written Aug 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sorbet in ice goblet

    Normally held on a wooden terrace set amongst the rocks over the sea - hence the name - but tonight there is the danger of rain, so the tables are laid up under the roof of the beach club instead.

    The evening is more akin to a dinner party - everybody eats the same food at the same time. Transport is laid on from the main hotel in a Land Cruiser, not the normal mini bus.

    The scene is very romantic and very unusual. There is only seven guests here tonight, on three tables. Little fairy ights are strung out between the trees on the beach, and the palm trees are lit up from below giving a very eerie look. Sounds of the waves and the geckoes add to the atmosphere.

    A quiet three pice band playing in the background accepts requests from all the tables.

    First Course: Stuffed rice wrapped in banana leaf with crab and beansprout salad. Delicious

    Second Course: Chicken and vegetable consomme. Very tasty

    Third Course: Lime sorbet served in goblets made from ice with flowers and leaves fron into them. Very impressive and refreshing

    Fourth Course: White snapper in cream sauce with bok choy, split peas and sliced potatoes with cheese.

    Fifth Course: Heartshaped cheesecake with a chocolate edge, chocolate straws and coulis of strawberry and passion fruit. Served with fresh strawberries and lychees.

    Favorite Dish: I have never before come across White Snapper, and I will say it is the best fish I have ever had. Slightly crisp coating (not batter), beautifully moist and soft flesh. Very, very, very good

    Uncle Lim's at Pangkor Laut: A very different concept

    by grets Written Aug 15, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    The Samudra: Malay food

    by tere1 Written Jul 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Samudra is the restaurant where they serve Malay food. It's built on stilts over the sea and has a nice ambiance, particularly at dinner time. I found the food average here. The service was very good though.

    Uncle Lim's: Fresh chinese food

    by tere1 Written Jul 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant serves chinese food and it's named after its chef, Uncle Lim. There is no menu, when you are at the table the waiters tell you what dishes they have for the day, according to the fresh fish or seafood they have. The restaurant is decorated with chinese motivs. I had an incredile tasteful meal one of the days and an excellent service but the next day it was the complete opposite. Bad food and bad service, so i was a bit disappointed the second time. You have to book a table well in advance, specially if the resort is full.

    This is the restaurant bar by Emerald Bay, the lovely Pangkor Laut beach. It has several tables outside and serves light lunches. You can have satays, calamari, sandwiches and salads. The food is really good and the service excellent.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malay Food Stall, Teluk Nipah

    These stalls are found all over Malaysia, especially in the kampungs ( villages ).

    Very cheap food, but under dusty and sometimes hot conditions.

    But here under the tree, with the breeze from the sea, it's wonderful !

    Favorite Dish: Try the famous roti canai, and of course, Nasi Lemak.

    Emerald Bay Beach Cafe: Very small portions

    by grets Written Aug 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wooden seats a little up from the beach, some on a covered terrace, some on the sand.

    They serve drinks and snack, and we are talking SNACKS now, not lunch!

    We order peppered beef, spring rolls and samosas, thinking we have a fairly subsatncial lunch. Wrong! They are very tasty, but more like a coctail snack than a proper "dish". We go back to the main pool area for a "proper" lunch after!

    Uncle Lim: frresh seafood Chinese style

    by Audrey118 Written Apr 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Laksa stall at Pangkor

    Heard that this laksa has been in Pangkor for many years. The foodstall is situated in the Fishermen's Village inside a large shelter where vehicles can drive in.

    Favorite Dish: The laksa uses thick noodles, without meat and has a spicy taste, different from others that I tried before.

    no. 301

    Kedai Kopi means coffeeshops. Try some cheap yet delicious local food for lunch at these coffeeshops located at the village near Pinang Kecil. Warning: may be very spicy.

    Favorite Dish: This no. 301 store offers great curry noodles and dried noodles. Slurp!
