Restoran See Hai 101 (新四海101海鲜楼), Taman Sentosa, Johor Bahru

A co-worker recommended this place (33 Jalan Sutera, Taman Sentosa, 80150 Johor Bahru) to me for the day trip to JB. Even though I have been in this vicinity multiple times over the past years, I've never really gotten the location figured out until now, having recognized the Sri Tebrau food centre nearby.

I guess the food was pretty decent. It's the ambiance that cannot be found back home any more. 

Those spicy sticks on the grill were cheap and tasty while the lou shi fun tasted comforting and home styled. I hadn't had fun eating crayfish in a while and these were really fresh and easily stripped off the shells. The nai you floss were pretty good. I'm not sure how are they made. They tasted slightly sweet, a little savoury and eggy with texture almost akin to pork floss scented lightly with curry leaves. Oh, please avoid the scallops with the stir fried greens. The kai lan was okay but the scallops were pretty much devoided of textures and flavors. I wouldn't have been surprised if they had told me it was made of flour. 

I don't mind coming back but I think I'll give the next door a try the next time to see if they're any better.
