Get down and dirty! That’s ‘THE WAY’ to enjoy your seafood here at Shell Out.
Located at the busy area of Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, Shell Out is one of the interesting dining spots I ever visited. Why?
With tagline ‘Simplicity Is Everything’ on their facebook page, customers are provided only latex gloves and disposable apron so that they can eat their foods with own cutler, and yes you guess it right, your 10 useful fingers!
The way how Shell Out serves the foods is also quite unique. Shell Out packs the seafood individually inside a plastic bag together with the fragrant sauce instead of serving it on a plate. According to the restaurant manager, seafood and the sauce are cooked separately and shaking it to mix together inside a plastic bag is better than stirring on a plate since the action may somehow destroy the nice texture of seafood.
A big sheet of waxed paper was then placed on the dining table and that’s your plate. Wait no more, stomach is growling so pours out all your foods on the table and start feasting in the most old-fashioned way, with your hands grabbing the food and put it inside your mouth.
We actually had fun doing it, touching or rubbing the food before you eat it was quite enjoyable since you are savouring the delicious cuisine with 4 of your senses – see, smell, touch, and taste. What a wonderful eating experience.
So, how to begin with your order? First, select your catch from a range of fresh seafood choices including :
Crab from Indonesia (Market Price)
King Prawn (RM29.90 per 300g; RM39.90 per 500g; RM77.90 per 1kg)
Clam (RM16.90 per 500g; RM29.90 per 1kg)
Crawfish (RM46.90 per 500g; RM88.90 per 1kg)
Scallop in 1/2 shell (RM18.90 per 250g; RM35.90 per 500g)
Escargot (upon availability)
Then, pick your sensation, whether you want the flavour to be Signature Shell Bang, Lemon Pepper, Butter Garlic, Black Pepper or Curry Curry. Customers can also decide how strong the taste you prefer from 3 different levels, either Mild, Medium, or OMG.
We ordered few more side dishes since having seafood alone would not be too filling.
Fried Fish Basket with Cajun Fries (RM10.90)
Fried Chicken Wings (RM12.90 per 4 pieces)
Fried Sweet Potato (RM9.90)
Broccoli (RM8.90 for small; RM15.90 for large)
Corn on Cob (RM1.90 per each)
Potato (RM1.90 per 3 pieces)
‘Life is too short to be serious. Let’s Eat!’ quoted Shell Out, and also a note to myself that sometimes food taste nice is just simply because we are having fun of it.
