Thanksgiving Dinner At Rainbow Seafood Restaurant, Menglembu, Ipoh

Our friend just returned from a trip to China and on Sunday night, he gave a thanksgiving dinner for safe journey throughout the whole trip. He invited my hubby and I and also their friend who is back from England for a holiday. He picked Rainbow Seafood Restaurant to hold the thanksgiving dinner.

On arrival we saw that the place is packed with customers. We didn't have to worry because a table has already been booked for us. Not only did he booked a table, he also booked 2 lobsters for dinner. He wanted to book 3 lobsters but the restaurant has only 2 lobsters left.
Our friend and wife brought along a bottle of red wine.

A plate of crispy, addictive prawn crackers to keep us occupied while waiting for our food.
After waiting for quite some time, our lobster dish arrived at our table. The lobsters were cooked in special sauce.

The lobsters claws were as big as the lobster's body and contain as much meat as the body.
There were 5 of us but only 4 halves of lobster. Our generous friend and wife insisted that we, their guests, each take one half of lobster and they shared one half between themselves.

This is the first time I have tasted lobster meat. I had thought that lobster meat is tough. I was proven wrong. The lobster's meat was tender and sweet and cooked in tasty special sauce. And there's plenty of lobster roe too. Overall, it was very tasty and very delicious, hmm...yum, yum...fingers licking good!
To enjoy our lobster, we have to abandon our fork and spoon to use our hands.

Next dish - Deep Fried Cod Fish. Outside was crispy, the inside flesh was very tender and fluffy. First time I have tasted deep fried cod fish, usually it was steamed.
Baby French Beans stir-fried with garlic.

Fried Rice very tasty.

Fried Noodle a bit salty to our liking.

We want to thank our generous friends (husband and wife) for a very scrumptious dinner. And not to forget to thank you also for the lunch.

Total cost of dinner MYR 613.32 (incl. 6% tax) (approx. 172.19 USD).

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.
(Psalm 100:4-5, New International Version-NIV)
