Although I said that dinner wan’t so nice at Banboo restaurant in Willetton, I still liked their salt & chili pepper squid.  It was nicely crispy, and I enjoyed it with pickled chili and vegetables.  In some restaurants (not only Chinese restaurants) texture of squid is like rubber.  I really hate when someone serve such dish at restaurants.  I think they are using frozen cheap squid, and they don’t cook properly.  I know one Chinese restaurant on South Street that sells rubbery seafood clay-pot dish.  I don’t only hate the fact that seafood is like rubber, but also the taste!  I can tell they use MSG…  I really didn’t wanna pay for the dish 🙁

Talking about seafood, I really loved Honey Prawn at Yu (Burswood Entertainment complex).  The prawn was reasonably big, and juicy.

    I LOVE crispy chili pepper squid!
    A lot of the dimsum places are really good at making it. It comes out crispy, salty and really tasty, but sometimes a little greasy.
    I know what you mean about the rubbery squid though. I think they overcook it because they put it in a hotpot while it’s still frozen (instead of defrosting it properly becuase that takes too long) to the squid cooks at an uneven rate and becomes overcooked too easily and ends up like rubber 😛
    I really like the food at Yu too, but it sure is expensive!

    Ahh I see! Some chefs are really lazy…
    Yes Yu is nice yet very expensive :p That’s why I can’t go there so often.
