Southern Rock Seafood at Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur (Food Review)

Being a seafood supplier to hotels and restaurants at first, Southern Rock Seafood opened their kitchen right next to their fishmonger in Bangsar back in 2015. Offering some of the freshest seafood in town, Southern Rock Seafood is famous for their variety of oysters from around the world.

The oysters that can be found at Southern Rock Seafood such as Gallagher Specials, Irish Premium, Tragheanna Bay from Ireland, Oxford Rock, West Mersea, Jersey Rock from England, Fine De Claire from France, Loch Ryan from Scotland, Dutch Natives, Creuses No.3 from Holland, Streaky Bay, Coffin Bay from Australia and Cloudy Bay from New Zealand. Do take note that the oyster selections depends on the season and availability.

The interior of the restaurant is filled with combination wooden style decor with blue painted walls and also on some of the furnitures which has the similarity of the sea theme.

Shan, the Malaysia’s Oyster Shucking Champion who can shuck 12 oysters per minute. That's really impressive!

We started off with the Bloody Mary Oyster Shot to prepare our palates with more oysters to come. The oyster is dunked into the glass filled with tomato juice and Tabasco sauce that combines the sourness, saltiness and a hint of sweetness as well.

Next, we had the oysters trio consisting of Coffin Bay from Australia, Fine De Claire from France, and Gallagher Special from Ireland. Adding a squeeze of lemon on the oyster one at a time to prevent the acidity of the lemon juice to alter the taste of the oyster. In the right order, we had the smallest one which is the Coffin Bay to the biggest one, Gallagher Special. All three of them have its own distinctive flavor but my favorite is the Fine De Claire which has a well balanced taste of sweetness and saltiness.

Fruits De Mer is a seafood dish platter with a combination of raw and cooked seafood and served alongside with other condiments. Here, we had Scottish Loch Duart Cured Salmon, Smoked Mackerel Paté on Toast, Smoked Ocean Trout Marinated Goat Cheese, Dutch Mussel Salsa, Cloudy Bay Clam with Ponzu and Lobster Bisque.

I enjoyed everything on this platter but the Scottish Loch Duart Cured Salmon and Cloudy Bay Clam with Ponzu won my top two highest votes. The beetroot cured salmon taste really interesting and it goes very well with the wasabi. The clam reminds me of a good bowl of seafood ramen which I had not long ago and I'm craving for more of that at this moment.

After the Fruits De Mer, three cute looking orange pots arrived on our table. Each of the pots have different mussel flavour and served with potato fries and garlic bread on the side.

 Legendary Mussel Laksa

Mussel With Tomato Broth

I personally will recommend the Legendary Mussel Laksa as the mussel and garlic bread go very well with it. For the final main dish, we had three different imported fish dishes.

Bertha Baked Lemon Sole from New Zealand with lettuce, chat potatoes, beetroot, cauliflower and broccoli.

Grilled Seabass from Greece with lettuce, potato wedges, asparagus and pea sprouts.

Bertha Baked Rainbow Trout from Holland with chat potatoes, lettuce, red and green peppers.

Last but not least, we had the Salted Caramel Fudge Brownie and Madagascar Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert. The ice cream was excellent and the brownie was really rich in flavor. The brownie is supplied by Bake with Dignity (BWD), a project by Dignity & Services providing paid employment for People with Learning Disabilities (17 and above) to learn and earn.

A glass of sangria to wash down the food.

Overall, Southern Rock Seafood is definitely a great place to enjoy fresh seafood especially their oysters. Worth mentioning here is the Fruits De Mer as well as the  Legendary Mussel Laksa which is my own personal favorite.

  1. that's all low carb als okan!

  2. Man I’m getting hungry! Oysters are amazing, I can have them endlessly!

    1. Wow... you're a fan of oysters too? You should go check out the seafood festival this Sunday! :D

  3. I'm old school - tried fresh oysters once at a hotel buffet in KL and I did not like them - put them all back. The Baked Lemon Sole from New Zealand looks good and the sea bass and trout too.

    1. I usually skip the oysters in hotel buffet since I don't really know where they are from. Yeah the fish dishes were good! :)
