Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. @ Sunway Pyramid

Taking inspiration from the Forrest Gump movie, Bubba Gump specialises in shrimp meals and its decor references many scenes from the movie. I'm not going to elaborate more on the ordering method as I'm sure most of you would have been there before. Just wanted to share the awesome shrimps I had here <drools>
Eat me! ^_^
Mama Gump's Garlic Bread Basket (RM 5.90)
The garlic bread here is toasted to a crisp with the wonderful aroma of melted garlic butter and cheese. It tastes buttery and crusty and cheesy - both my brother and JS love it to bits.
Mama Blue's Southern Charmed Fried Shrimp (RM 38.90)
Are you salivating just looking at the numerous golden lumps of deep-fried shrimp? Imagine dipping each into the tartare sauce or salsa provided and eating the entire de-shelled prawn coated with crispy panko batter whole <ascends into prawn heaven> It feels so good not having to peel the shells off the prawns and being able to plop each crispy yet juicy and bouncy prawn directly into your mouth...absolutely heavenly. The tail bits are also deep fried to a crispy texture that you can chew into bits if you wish.
The shoestring fries are deep fried to perfection - no soggy, stringy, straggly bits. Very addictive with the tartare sauce (I even had a refill of the tartare sauce). The salsa on the other hand tasted a bit weird...there was this funny taste I couldn't quite place. It was slightly bitter and sourish with a tiny bit of unpleasant new wardrobe smell =.=
The coleslaw was average but I wished they provided a bigger portion to offset the heaty-ness of the deep fried platter.

Lt. Dan's Drunken Shrimp (RM 39.90)
This platter consists of chargrilled shrimp and spicy sausage against a bed of mashed potatoes and sitting in a sea of non-alcoholic Bourbon sauce.
  • Shrimp is fresh and juicy and has sufficient flavour when eaten on its own. 
  • Spicy sausage is also good with a wonderful chicken taste.
  • Mashed potatoes was average. Very smooth though.
  • Bourbon sauce was a little too cheesy for my liking but my brother mopped up every single drop of sauce =P
  • Skinny golden strips propped upright in the blob of mashed potatoes tasted like deep fried flour? Not too sure what it is but it's great with the sauce.
Apart from shrimp, they also serve chicken, beef and other seafood. The dishes served at Bubba Gump are very yummy but prices are a bit steep. But then what would you expect when you're paying others to deshell a whole load of prawns for you? =D
