Restoran Chardin Sea View Seafood Village @ Port Dickson, Malaysia

It is the day after Deepavali and we are still here in Port Dickson. Now, time to look for some good place for lunch. Would not be wanting to eat again in the Coffee House like last night. What I did for a change was to get into the car and got my GPS to explore places and then it loaded this Chardin Sea View Seafood Village restaurant which is not too far from where I stayed. It mentioned that it was less than 3 Kilometers and we collectively decided to try out the place.

At Chardin Sea View Seafood Village
In less than 5 minutes, we were here at this place. It is located on the way to the Port Dickson Town, and a mere 5 minutes from the PD town roundabout. Once we arrived, well it was already 2pm as we left late from the apartment and it was literally empty. I became skeptical on the restaurant but once I entered I was surprised. It was an extremely well stocked restaurant with different kinds of seafood, I would say the full array of even the exotic ones and had easily around 200 tables in the restaurant. I just thought to myself that we may have just missed the peak hour.

  Once we were in, the service was quite fast and we choose the table that was closest to the sea view. The boss arrived to take the orders and then it when I learned that this is a Halal restaurant and their main business is dinner. I was told that usually they are full house from 6pm to 9 pm and it is best to call and reserve a table before coming in for dinner. That was comforting to hear. Then another thought struck my mind, being in such a huge restaurant how would the bill be like. Well, we cant walk out now and since it is a festive season, just did not mind that and decided to place the orders. I also observed that all their workers were Cambodians.

Sizzling Bean Curd @ RM 10.00
The first dish we ordered arrived. The portions were big and later when the final bill came, I was extremely delighted that it was so cheap. I have placed the item prices at the photo itself as always for you to gauge. This dish was good for five and it was delicious.

Mixed Vegetable Soup @ RM 8.00
This photo shows a portion of the soup that was poured for me. In total, It gave around 8 bowls of soup. The soup itself was fantastic. In fact, I would bravely say that among the plain vegetable soups that I tried, this was surely the best and at a mere RM 8.00, it was truly cheap and delicious.

Fried Egg with Shrimps @ RM 8.00
This was the third dish we ordered. It was average as you get in other places too but the plus point here is that there we lots of shrimps in the eggs and it was decently priced at RM 8.00 .

Butter Cheese Squids @ RM 15.00
This dish was yummy and I loved every bit of it. It was also infused with butter with cheese and milk as the base and a touch of cili padi. That gave it a sweet, buttery base with a light touch of spiciness. A recommended dish to try here.

Dried Chilly Chicken with Cashew Nuts @ RM 15.00
This dish was average, I felt. There was a little too much vinegar to it and that killed the taste. Of course this may differ to individuals but this is just my humble opinion.

Sea Mantis with Salted Eggs @ RM 15.00
This was the last of the dishes that we ordered and it was good. Crispy with the right flavors. Loved this dish.

My Brother Checking Out The Sea Food Items
On the whole, it was a good dining experience. In total including the rice and drinks the bill came to a mere RM 88.65 and that is a good deal for five to dine. Having it's Halal status, this would surely entice more Muslim crowd too to dine at this restaurant. If you are in Port Dickson, do check out this restaurant and you would not be disappointed.
