Bubba Gump Shrimp Co @ The Curve

This is one restaurant that my son wanted very much to go.We tried once but was turn off by the waiting period as we were hungry. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co opened its first in 1996, spinning off from the 'Forest Gump' movie (1994).

The waiting time for a table during weekends' evening is 20-30 minutes. Plan your meal-time then it is a pleasant experience. Leave your name and phone no. to their helpful and friendly staff and they will call you when your table is up.

Obviously this restaurant is about shrimps. There is also the usual western menu. However, it is wise to go for shrimps. Our visit last week was repaid in gastronomic dividends big time.

Delicious, fresh and big prawns, big portions and cheap. Three of us spent about RM135 and we were belly up literally towards the end. No desserts!! And just after leaving we were planning for our next visit!

Camera: Nokia E90. Lighting was a bit dim. Photos was a compromised as I did not want to use the flash for close-up.

Quenchers and Smoothies out of this world - thick and oozing with quality RM9.90 - 10.90. Sky juice was freely dispensed when the 'real thing' run out.
Caesar Salad and Clam Chowder at RM16.90.The star attraction! A pot of nearly 40 pieces of big, fresh shrimps in garlic sauce. 3/4 lbs for RM24.90. This is the best order!! You can go double at 1 1/2 lbs for RM47.80.Shrimper's Heaven - Coconut Shrimp, Chilli Shrimp, Fried Shrimp and Tempura Shrimp, with coleslaw, lots of raw cabbage, fries and dipping sauces. RM44.90.A memorable phrase from the Forest Gump movie.

Hey we must have gone during the same weekend! I've just blogged about it as well. Overall, I'm not blown away but I didn't get to try as much as you did!

still cant believe that there is a restaurant dedicated to shrimps ~which sounds so specialised

what we know Malaysians are horrified of prawns in general esp the old folks for a funny reason

550 JoF ... We were slightly ambitious and all of us love shrimps.

L I ... while waiting my son was enjoying the movie at the souvenir sales counter.

BSG ... The older is afraid of allergy and the middle age of cholesterol and the younger casts caution to the wind.
