Shell Out @ Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara

Friday, October 10, 2014 6 Comments A+ a-

After reading positive review about Shell Out, we finally drive all the way from Setapak to Kota Damansara to have our seafood feast. This lovely place is opened in June 2013 with the originality for being the first restaurant that brings American unique concept of eating seafood using our hands only. 

The whole idea is to get our hands messy, busy with our fingers and leave the handphone aside. Spending time and bonding with family and friends together, everyone will be concentrating to peel off the fresh seafood and this is the great moments to chat, laugh and having fun. Very much agree with that and every table are happily enjoying their seafood.

Forget about the cholesterol level and come let's eat and get our hands's dirty!

The signature food- Fresh crab available daily

Eye catching place at every side of the corner.I was admiring those comments on the walls, lamps, ceiling, tables, chairs..almost everywhere..customers are really creative that they also take the ladder and went up to put down their signature to mark the date and time they have dine in here in Shell Out. 

All types of writings with different colours. Unfortunately, the special designed marker is out of stock. Maybe you should just bring your own marker 

The restaurant decoration is impressive and felt like sailing to the sea

Fishing net on the side table with some fishes and shell inside. Wooden table and chairs seating with lots of drawing and signatures on it. You can even draw your faces there

No plates and cutlery's . Only a roll of tissue is provided for each table and few clean wax brown paper. 

Shell Out promises daily fresh seafood supply and we can get the choices of Indonesia Crab ( at Market Price), King Crab Legs (Market Price, pre-order only), King Prawn (RM39.90/300g; RM49.90/500g; RM89.90/1kg), Clam (RM18.90/500g; RM30.90/1kg), Crawfish/Yabbies (RM46.90/500g; RM88.90/1kg); Scallop  (RM20.90/250g; RM36.90/500g), Giant scallop RM 24.90 for 5 pieces and etc..

Step 1 - Pick you favourite seafood..What's your catch for the day??

Step 2, Choose your sensation by selecting the sauce of Lemon Pepper, Butter Garlic, Shell Bang (combination of Lemon Pepper and Butter Garlic), Black Pepper or Curry Curry sauce. 

Step 3 - Spice them up with Mild, Medium or OMG. 

Step 4 - Add on broccoli, corn on cob, potato or sausage.

FYI, Japanese snail (RM 13.90) is only available on Fri, Sat and Sun. Always maintain fresh, they only keep it for 3 days. 

Refreshing drinks - Green tea (can be refill), V-Soy and Coconut

Slurping up to the last spoonful of the soup of the day ( chicken mushroom soup) together with the crispy garlic bread

Fresh water Yabbies

Octopus RM 20.90 / 20 pcs. Delightful and the savoury sauce went very well with the baby octopus

I am salivating looking at these incredible seafood dish and we discover different flavors in every bite. 

Appetizing clam with lemon pepper sauce. Personally, I love this so much and I almost finished half of this portion. The sauce blends so well 

The half shell scallop is cooked with butter garlic and mild sensation. Flavourful and when you see the scallop and clam is peeled off themselves from the shell, which means this is really good. When we tasted all the seafood especially the clam, we did not found any sand in the shell. All are fresh and clean

Gorgeous King Prawn (butter garlic sauce) . The king prawn texture is pretty good. Solid, juicy and bouncy. Light flavours ,so we can enjoy the natural sweetness of the fresh prawns 

Moments of excitement when the crab was thrown on our table..Yummylicious!

I am not kidding you..the crab is really giant size!!

Food are served in the basket and wrapped inside the plastic bag. Shake Shake..then the staff will poured out the fresh and aromatic seafood on the table. You can choose to leave the seafood on the plastic bag or poured everything out. I will prefer the second choice.

We are so ready with our napkins on..So let's eat!!

Apart from that, we order the sweet taro stick. Combination of yam and pandan

Crawfish (Yabbies) . The Shell Bang sauces are not too overpowering, incredibly addictive and each sizes of the Yabbie is huge. We are taught how to peel it off nicely with the proper technique. Firstly, remove by twisting the head. Then, laid it on the table  horizontal , press on both side in the middle and you will hear the sound " crack" ..The simplest way to shell is to take the tail between thumb and forefinger then with your other hand use your thumb to peel the shell off the front end of the tail. Now you can take the exposed flesh and pull it from the end of the shell. 

Deep fried pomfret with Cajun fries (RM 13.90)

Placing them nicely. The silver pomfret is fried to perfection and crispy. I can easily peel it off easily and the small bones is also crispy 
Beautifully  presented with sauces all around . We are going to mess it all. I squeeze the lime and the lemon sour taste brings up another level of satisfaction.

Reshaping the crab. Must try this! Perfect blend on the Shell bang sauce and adding on the OMG sensation. Surprisingly, the sauces are just mild, not that spicy that I can imagine off with the small red chili. Simply irresistible!

Look at how enjoyable we are..10 fingers stained with sauces and smiling all the way..finger licking good.

The wall art creation from one of their staff. Can you spell out the word correctly?

Only RM92 for Crab Combo (2Pax) / RM168 for Crab Super Combo (4Pax) - Recommended for family dining to enjoy Delicious Seafood Galore like Crabs, Mussels, Tiger Prawn & Octopus . This is perhaps a worth package that completes your meal with seafood and balance up with some nutrition vegetables.
