Best Steamed Fish in KL

Written by Updated ago

One of the best ways to enjoy a good juicy fish is by steaming it because unlike deep-frying or grilling, steaming preserves the fish’s texture and flavour as well as the overall nutritional value of the food. You can relish the freshness of the fish while enjoying savouriness when its topped with a favourable soy sauce or bean paste! Check out the list below for a taste of this comfort delight!

    Shamelin Barbeque RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Despite the name of the restaurant, it has nothing to do with barbeque whatsoever. This place offers traditional Chinese dishes, the best being the steamed fish served in a claypot. It's steamed to tender perfection, and lightly coated with savoury soya sauce. Coupled with shredded vegetables and ginger, it helps balance the overall taste while wonderfully retained the freshness of the fish!
