Today, we were going to have our last lunch in Langkawi before flying back to KL. We decided to dine at the Pantai Cenang area as it was closer to our hotel and to the airport than say, some place like Kuah town. Restoran Orkid Ria looked cozy and crowded on that rainy day, so we went in to try.
We had fried chicken since hubby-to-be complained about not having had any meat for days. (It had been all seafood, seafood, seafood!) The fried chicken cost RM12.00, quite expensive for a mere chicken whole-leg (drumstick + thigh, deboned). It tasted really good though, with a hint of curry powder, crunchy skin and juicy meat.
This was something of a novelty, sizzling oyster on a hotplate. It's basically like o' chien (oyster omelette), except wetter. RM10.00 per plate. I enjoyed this dish full of baby oysters bursting in my mouth with each bite.
We divvied up the tomyam prawns and for RM16.00 it came to exactly 2 small bowls. It had a strong lemon taste, which was somewhat unusual for tomyam, I am more used to the lime taste rather than lemon. The prawns were consolably large for the price we paid. Tomyam is always a favourite, lemony or otherwise.
