Ocean King Seafood Restaurant, Sandakan - The Land Below The Wind

Baby Lobsters

My brothers had booked a table for dinner at Ocean King Seafood Restaurant. Here we went in three cars.

Here are the dishes we ordered:

Steamed Garoupa
Stir-Fried Sabah Vegetable

Curry Prawn

Steamed Shellfish (Does anyone know the name of this shellfish?) It goes well with lime juice. Yummy!
This is how you eat the shellfish, to get to the meat using plier like tool.
Deep Fried Homemade Seafood Bean Curd
Stir Fried Venison Meat with Ginger & Spring Onion
It's hard to miss this large restaurant built on stilts over the bay. Just follow Jalan Leila out of town towards Pasir Putih (sign posted at each roundabout), a small beach where older seafood stalls have long been popular. Ocean King has 100 tables, some of them in a large dining hall, while the more attractive location is the large covered verandah overlooking the bay towards Sandakan town, and which catches any passing breeze. There is a vague menu price list written on the board on the verandah, but basically, if it swims you can order it. Fish, Crabs, Prawns, Lobster, Squid and various shellfish are all available and you can ask for advice on how they are best cooked. The bean curd, the curry prawn and Sabah vegetable dishes are good though the steamed fish was overcooked but overall it's worth making a trip there for the food and experience.
Open daily from 10 am until midnight
Jalan Batu Sapi (4.5km), Pasir Putih
Tel: (089)618111, 616048

Note: I visited the restaurant again in March 2010 and they have changed their opening hours. Please click here for more informaiton.
