Craving some scrumptious shellfish? Maybe you’re more of a fish person? A good plate of piping hot seafood can soothe and fill the belly unlike any other dish on Earth.

Here are a few renowned seafood spots in TTDI.
Many of us would probably agree that Chinese style seafood is one of the best kinds of seafood in KL. Hop on over to Muhibbah Seafood and have a go at the deep fried sotong (squid), featuring a crunchy and savoury outer layer that hides soft and tender chunks of meat. The vegetables are purportedly fantastic too, like the Xing Gong Tau Fu and Belacan Choi Tam.
