Street Eight Restaurant 八条街河海鲜 @ Bagan Samak, Bandar Baharu Kedah

We made a compulsary stop at Bagan Samak, Bandar Baharu Kedah on the way back hometown from our trip to Kuantan. Having tried numerous restaurants in the small Chinese village there and almost every meals here was memorable, we decided to try another restaurant here - Street Eight Restaurant 八条街河海鲜. This restaurant is located within the residental area of the village and not visible from the main street where the usual restaurants are located. Anyway, the food taste here did not turn out to be what we had expected and the overall dining experience was mediocre.

We asked for dishes recommendation that can fit a kid appetite since we are travelling with a 2 years old toddler and the boxx introduced us Kampung Chicken cooked with ginger and sesame oil (RM 25 for half a kg). 

Personally, we felt this dish was not that nice as expected. The meat was hard but not tender as we had expected, probably a result of overcooking. Then the choice of kampung chicken resulted the chicken pieces were generally smaller in size (kampung chicken tends to be smaller compared to commercially reared chicken), and there were not many flesh to be enjoyed. Furthermore, the seasoning was more to concoction of soy sauce and dark soy sauce as depicted by the color of the dishes, while the supposingly aroma arise from the sesame oil was absence. 

Even we find it hard to finish the entire dish as it was not pleasant.

As usual, we ordered river seafood in Bagan Samak and this round we ordered a wild catfish (RM 75/kg). Our portion was 650g and there was nothing surprising on this dish. The fish was a tad overcooked, resulting a hard flesh and the seasoning was uninspiring. 

Then the Stir Fried Malay Kangkung (RM 10) was mediocre. We expected it to carry some burning sensation but it was totally absent and the dish was too watery to enjoy.

Overall, I would not really come back here for a second trip and instead will be going back to the other restaurants in Bagan Samak.
