Best Steamed Fish in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

For seafood purists, crustaceans may come and go, but there is nothing better than a whole fish. Never denying, without being fileted, fish usually keeps its full flavours and the best way to retain its natural goodness with a little gentrification, is to steam them. Be it sweet, savoury, tangy or light, steaming can be wildly varied with lush ingredients. We have curated the finest steamed fish in Johor Bahru that gives you all reason to be buoyant.

    Nabbing accolade with a myriad of mouthwatering seafood and tomyam, this humble restaurant is always full-of-life, especially after the sun takes rest. The dish that has earned them so much fame is Steamed Sea Bass with Lemon. Take in the beauty of the presentation as the delicate fish drowns in a subtle yellowish-broth and generously piled with julienned onions, chilies, garlic and lemon slices. Each mouthful of tender meat has a clean hit of citrus and savoury ride. Great aesthetic pleasure is guaranteed while dining seafood goodness under the stars.

    Nestled in a bustling food court, this stall has become seafood lovers’ best-pick for everyday dining, as it’s cheap and never disappoints. Hands down, just pick the crowd favourite, steamed fish with lemon, which would justify the name of the restaurant. Fresh sea bass lounging in an ocean filled with garlic, chili, and chopped herbs smatterings and tarted up with slices of lemon and sprinkle of carrots. The fish is tender and soaks up all those flavours from the flawless broth. A mound of white rice would be the best match.

    Bangkok Village

    The name of the restaurant should tell you what’s the pride of the menu but first timers would be in open-mouthed wonder with the atmosphere that steals the spotlight. This postcard-perfect restaurant is filled with lush greenery, fish ponds, hanging vines, elegant water fountains and framed with gossamer-style curtains. Once done marveling the backdrop, gear up for a smorgasbord of seafood and tomyam goodness. Reaping merits are their Thai Lemon Steamed Sea Bass which is infused with heaps of garlic, herbs, chilies and slices of lemon. The gravy is tangy and savoury, binds well with the fish that scatters off from the bone with a delicate touch.  Juxtaposed the dining space is a charming cabana, where weddings and large evenings take place. To cut short, it’s a feast for foodies and photography enthusiasts.

    Sunny Wong Fish Head Soup

    Widely vaunted for their fresh catches from the ocean that are elevated with Chinese-style recipes and it’s never a surprise the restaurant is constantly filled with patrons. You may be spoilt for choices yet include their steamed fish into your bucket as it’s amazingly addictive. Remarkably fresh, the pomfret is lusciously scattered with a handful of vegetables. Don’t be deterred by the simple outlook, the fish traps all the subtle flavours of the ginger and herbs, offering a party on your palate. Best paired with their Sau Lou fried bee hoon or white rice.
