Restoran Lucky Seafood @ Lukut, Port Dickson

Restoran Lucky Seafood at PD is quite a popular place and is often featured in media for its signature curry chicken bun. The shop is located along the main road and is easily spottable as it sits right at the corner of the row of shophouses. If it's of any help, the restaurant is near Giant hypermarket.

Huge buns waiting in the oven
As you can see, the curry chicken buns are huge and we were lucky that there were still some buns waiting in the oven for us despite going there in the early evening.
Curry Chicken / Tong Po Yuk Bun (RM 38)
Unfortunately when the bun was presented to us, it had been sliced open to resemble a blooming flower and we were unable to take a picture of the crust. The curry chicken and tong po yuk are contained in separate wax paper wraps and are reheated simultaneously as the bun is baked in the oven.
  • Bread was fluffy and compact with a nice hard crust. There were tiny spices embedded in the bread (probably star anise) which were rock hard so be careful not to bite on them. Really yummy when doused with curry or tong po gravy.
  • Curry chicken contained a number of big chunks of potatoes and chicken and was surprisingly quite spicy. Addictive <thumbs-up>
  • Tong po yuk was really smooth with a flavourful gravy but pales in comparison to the curry.
Kangkung Belacan (RM 10)
The kangkung belacan smelled fantastic but it was kind of undercooked so the stems were tougher than usual. Taste-wise, it was great just like how anything with belacan tastes great.
Mantis Prawns in Butter (RM 18)
The mantis prawns in butter were deep-fried till the batter was quite hard. Nothing spectacular as it was kind of bland and the fragrance of curry leaves did not really come through.
Squid in Salted Egg Yolk (RM 18)
The squid in salted egg yolk wasn't what we (or rather, I) expected as we were used to the deep-fried kind available in most restaurants in the Klang Valley; instead it was the wet type with runny salted egg yolk still coating the squid rings. Again, the taste was rather bland as the flavour of the salted egg yolk was reduced to such an extent one might as well call it squid in salted egg yolk. I'm not sure what that leaf of iceberg lettuce is for - not very pretty as decoration and insufficient to counter the high cholesterol of the dish - it looked quite pathetic =.=
All in all, a very average meal with the exception of the curry chicken bun. I've had better seafood at other restaurants along the main road (you can try Weng Yin Seafood Village near Thistle Port Dickson Resort). Prices are very affordable though. There is also another outlet at Seremban if you're in town.
