    We decided to drop by Turf City one Sunday evening and have dinner at one of the seafood restaurants. How we ended up at Ah Yat, I have no idea, especially when my last dinner at the Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim outlet turned out to be a disaster. To be fair, that was quite a few years ago so things might have improved?

    The interior of the restaurant was a stark contrast to its surroundings. Soothing but a little gaudy versus partially smashed bare concrete, displaced steel wires/nails and loud drilling noises. Yes, the entire Turf City is under renovation and only a handful of units remain open ( I counted 3 - Owen Seafood, Ah Yat & Giant).

    Shark's Fin Soup - Decently sized with slivers of shark's fin and crab meat, the broth was a little too starchy and salty for my liking. Thankfully the serving of fried, albeit overly oily bean sprouts helped to alleviate this dish by introducing water content as well as a wonderful crunch to it. It's interesting how sometimes the humblest of produce can help turn a dish around.

    Oyster with Garlic - For our set, we had a choice of Bamboo Clam or Oyster and I chose the latter. And honestly, I couldn't quite make out any taste other than garlic because it was just so overwhelming.

    Braised Abalone with Sea Cucumber - I am usually not a big fan of abalone and Ah Yat's well known dish just wasn't about to convert me. The abalone was of decent size (6 head) and a little chewy, though I did find it a little on the salty side. The accompanying sea cucumber and mushroom were decent but failed to leave much of an impression.

    Peking Duck - The peking duck was an additional order we craved meat. And it didn't turn out to be a very wise decision. Though the skin was crisp, both the meat and crepe were too dry. Felt very much like eating roast duck - nothing special.

    Fried Rice - Although the lack of ingredients was apparent (there was only egg yolk and dried scallop slivers), this dish had a nice wok hei to it and each individual grain was evenly coated and didn't come across as too oily. Be warned that the dried scallops should be eaten together with the rice as the salt content is rather high and might prove unbearable if eaten alone.

    Overall the meal wasn't fantastic and even the more expensive ingredients didn't quite justify the price, at about $210 for 3 pax. Service was decent but I highly doubt I will ever return.

      As I and my gf are quite early when we reached the place, there are not many people around us at that point in time. We slowly go through the menu and I suggested the stir-fried scallop with yam paste (picture below) as it looks quite yummy and chilli crabs~ Chilli Crabs is a must since they offer a 50% discount on weekdays!!!! Where else to get that kind of offer??

      Soon, our food arrived. The stirred fried scallop is so tender and juicy that it certainly melt my heart. The yam paste was fried to just the correct extend that it is still very crispy on the outside and piping hot on the inside. *shiok* One point to take note that this food must be consume when its still hot, or else, it will not be nice anymore.

      Rate: 7.5/10

      Next up is the chilli crabs. All right, I admit that the freshness of the crab melts my heart again, but....but... the chilli paste spoils it all!! Its not spicy at all and the paste is just not right. I find it too starchy and flavourless and certainly don't feel satisfied eating the dish. I certainly don't recommend this dish at this restaurant again unless they change the person who is cooking it.

      Rate: 4/10 ( 1.0 for freshness)
