Jiann Chyi Restaurant @ Sekinchan

Jiann Chyi is one of well known restaurant in Sekinchan. It is located at the Bagan area, just within the fishing village.

The restaurant is always crowded during public holiday and weekends. The never ending line is very obvious from the moment we arrived here. The restaurant open from 7.30am until 3pm only and will not be available at night.

To avoid disappointment, it is best to make reservation via 03-32414690 or else the restaurant owner will not let you be seated without any reservation before hand. Otherwise, just arrive at the restaurant early and make the reservation by leaving your contact number.

It is shame the restaurant did not sell beer which will augur well with the food and the atmosphere around here. There are quite limited choices of drinks available here such as sweet and sour drink, tea, 100 Plus and Cola only.

Stir fried sweet potato leaves which is pretty standard and nothing out of the ordinary.

This is basically pan-fried shark. It tastes OK but not the best way to enjoy a shark dish. I would recommend it to be fried with pig's intestine with spicy sauce or cooked in a soup.

Fish Maw with vegetables is a decent dish cooked with onion, spring onion, carrot and cauliflower.

The shark fin soup porridge is really a must try dish. It is simply out of this world and the broth is one of the best I ever tried. It has a unique taste that soothe my taste buds.  It is cooked with shark, fish balls and lots of ginger.

The bill came out RM 56 (excluding drinks) for all the 4 dishes which feed 3 person. I must say it is very reasonable by any standard. Some of the other dishes worth ordering is the hot & spicy prawn, fried mantis shrimp and steamed fish head.
