To celebrate my mom’s birthday, we went to Starview Restaurant in Perai last weekend. We have been to this restaurant before and found most of the dishes quite unique.
Crab sauce fried noodles, tastes like ‘sang mien’ but is much more flavorful. Very nice.
My father and I love ostrich meat, the texture is very similar to beef and more tender. Besides, ostrich meat is healthier because its lower in cholesterol, fat and calorie, making it the best alternative for beef.
This was what I specifically ordered, braised mutton in claypot at only RM10.
One of the best salad prawns I’ve had so far. They are deep fried with sesame seeds and laid on cut honeydews with generous amount of mayonnaise as dressing. Another variation of this dish is using steamed prawns, but I like deep fried one better.
This is a super nice dish. The fish is sliced into boneless pieces carefully, deep fried and then layered with delicious garlic and butter sauce.
Lastly, a specialty of Starview Restaurant – Peking Duck ala Starview. The specialty of this dish lies in the method of eating it. As seen, there are 4 ingredients in this dish: duck meat with jellyfish, duck skin on prawn crackers, Peking sweet sauce and egg wrappers. Basically just put all ingredients in the wrapper and eat it like popiah.
It’s kinda amazing how they create the patterns on the egg wrappers. Although special, this dish only tastes mediocre at best to me. Because the jellyfish pieces are actually pickled, which gave a weird taste to the duck meat. For those interested, Starview Restaurant can be found beside Pacific hypermarket along Chinatown.
