Vday at Uncle Albert's Traditional English Fish and Chips

Was planning to have New Year Eve dinner at Uncle Albert's last time, but too bad they do not allowed us to make reservation on that day; tried walk-in on that day after our work and the queue scared us off. This is why we left this restaurant for our vday celebration; not really a celebration, we just wanted to have dinner like normal day. I don't fancy for fine dinning, so does BenDan, I just don't like the environment where I can't really laugh out loud when I feel to, nah not really but I prefer normal restaurant or cafe where we will get more freedom to do anything like a boss. 
We went there one day before the vday, just to avoid the crowd and crazy traffic; my actual vday was to have dinner with my parents. Don't judge me with this, I like it this way. Most of the diners prefer to have their outdoor seats than indoor, this explain why the indoor looks empty. We chose to have sofa seats than outdoor, to prevent mosquitoes that might ruin our perfect dinner. Laugh
I don't really know all types of fishes that named on the menu (except salmon and dory fish), luckily they do have the fish dictionary corner to help you out. Our eyes blinking when the waiter handed us the dinner special set that cost only RM37 that including soup of the day, main course and complimentary Iced Lemon Tea. I like the soup of the day, not the mushroom soup nor broccoli soup, but it tasted like one kind of vegetable soup, pretty good I would say, no photos shown here by the way. Paiseh ah
Tempura natural squid rings | RM15
Snack that we had before the main course. It is so chewy and worth a thumb up, the Thai-style sweet and sour sauce enhance the taste of squid rings. Perfect match. It doesn't taste right when we dipped it with normal chili sauce. 
Uncle Albert's Battered Grouper
I don't really like to have Fish and Chips (unless I sick of chicken that day) as most of the restaurant served dory fish, nothing wrong with the dory fish, I just don't really like the 'texture'. Here, they provide different kind of fishes to be served, so I go for grouper and the portion is real huge although it can't really tell from the photo. This is heavenly good and the grouper is so fresh. I will definitely go back for more of this! So yummy. 
Grilled Fillet of Fresh Salmon
BenDan had the grilled salmon which the portion is also quite huge for the price we paid, the grilled salmon is served with grilled vegetables and mashed potato. Wonder why the mashed potato looks so dry? They do served the homemade mushroom cream sauce which can be pour on top of the mashed potato or on the grilled salmon. The salmon is well cooked, and still juicy. 

BenDan was then surprised me with the fruit cake from Brix & Baume which he had ordered earlier. Glad that he still remembered I once say I only only accept mille crepe or fruit cake. Thank you for everything. ♥
