This is a revisit. Read our first visit here.
Whitebait - RM24
Seafood chowder - RM17
Lager steamed mussels - RM29
We weren't that famished, so this time around it was a 3-course meal to share. Starting with the bowl of lightly fried whitebait, we chomped these little fishies down with an imaginary glass of beer. At RM24 for a bowl of these pub-grub, price was perhaps a little steep. Our 2nd course of seafood chowder - Bait whips up a slightly different version of this popular used-to-be "poor man's food". It has the usual suspects of mussels, shrimps, clams and potatoes that makes the broth thick. A slice of lime does the trick to carry a mild sourish flavour. We wouldn't say it's the best, but it's definitely different. Our mains of lager steamed mussels was polished off to the last drop! Traces of lager or beer was strong as we could instantly smelt it the moment the dish arrived. The broth has flavours and bites of leek, mustard seed, oregano, and beef chorizo.
Bait could however improve on the bread - we would welcome a little creativity instead of normal plain toasted baguette.
Once again, Bait has managed to hooked and reeled us in for possibly a 3rd and many visits to come.
