Darn... Looks like they've closed down.
(Hooked is being replaced by a Thai restaurant called Sutra - still under construction)
[ END EDIT ]
Feeling healthy, I decided to start off my dinner with a fresh Seafood Salad.
It had some funky name, Neptune’s something or other….
(All the dishes on the menu at Hooked seem to have some sort of interesting name)
Erm. Anyway, here it is:
The salad greens were fresh and there were a fair bit of lightly cooked squid, mussels and prawns accentuated by the tart vinaigrette dressing.
‘Twas “OK” by my standards.
The calamari rings that followed however, were better….
Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, the calamari rings come served in a cute little basket with a dollop of calories, erm, I mean mayo.
(It was not a big serving, but for the decent price of about RM7, ... it’s something I would definitely order again)
Next up, the seasonal special that HY chose: Grilled fish fillet with a black pepper sauce:
As for me, I had the Caribbean Craving, a lightly grilled fish with a rich tomato based sauce. It came served with a small side of mushroom spaghetti .....
(tasty, but I had trouble finding the mushrooms)
.... and panfried potatoes
(MM-Mmmm, yummy carby goodness).
This is definately something that I would recommend to try. The fish was fresh and the accompanying sauce was tasty... The serving size was also rather generous (I was surprised to find another large piece of fish under what I thought was just a pile of sauce)
The Hooked Highlight
Hmmmm... the general consensus was that, although there was nothing largely wrong with it and no one could fault it in any way, it just wasn't really special....
Unfortunately, I had no space for desserts after all that but I hope to try some of the interesting desserts they had on their menu the next time I go there.....
And gracing our presence that night, our very own Zamil Idris, who made us all proud when he made it to the Top 10 on the first season of Malaysian Idol.
