Your Top 10 “See – Food” Guide. We see food. We Eat It.
1. One Seafood
If you’re looking for an air-conditioned place to escape the heat while savoring local Asian seafood cuisine, this place should be on your must-eat list. Located right at the heart of the city, One Seafood serves fresh lobsters, shrimps, geoducks and good local crabs. You can easily check out their display of live seafood in their aquariums and be assured that it’s going to be fresh dinner for the night.

2. Restoran Stadium Negara
“Never judge a book by its cover” perfectly summarizes this little seafood gem. Do not let its appearance fool you because this place can easily be your every go-to seafood place in KL. This place specializes in seafood and that’s when you know, you won’t be disappointed. With their juicy crabs coated with aromatic sweet sauce and fried mantau combo, your taste buds will definitely thank you later.

3. Fatt Kee Roast Fish
If you’re a fan of spice and heat, add this to your list. Bear in mind with the degree of spiciness because we are afraid that it might numb your tongue and sense of taste while enjoying the fresh seafood dishes. But hey, if you managed to fight through the chili, kudos to you! *bows down*
Address : Off Jalan Pasar, 25, Lorong Yap Hin, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur Operating Hours : Mon – Sun 12pm – 2am
4. Top Catch Fisheries
Seafood doesn’t necessarily have to be chili crabs and deep fried shrimps. Japanese sashimi, salmon, butter fish and scallops can easily satisfy your seafood cravings too. Ask anyone about Top Catch Fisheries and they will say “fresh (and frozen) seafood at its best price.” Your sashimi hunting has come to an end because you can get a generous mouthwatering cut of sashimi without burning a hole in your pocket (phew!). Unfortunately, the only downside is they close at mid noon so remember to book in advance.
Address : 17, Jalan Hujan Rahmat, Taman Overseas Union, 58200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur Operating Hours : Mon (Closed) , Tues – Sun 7:30am – 1pm
Ah, another Japanese seafood restaurant worth mentioning. Uokatsu takes pride in their mentai rice and almost every table will order this dish without a doubt. Despite that fact that the interior is nothing special, but the food will leave you smiling at the end of your meal. Majority will agree that the prices may not be the most affordable but if you are ready to splurge, Uokatsu is worth a try.

Instead of the conventional coffee conversations, switch it up for a messy feast and chat over a mountain of fresh seafood with aromatic Cajun spices.
