Venicia Restaurant at Casa Venicia Condominium

The condo surroundings. Waving to the guard at the exit! Lake and condo swimming pool near the restaurant The Venicia restaurant located on the 1st floor of the condo clubhouse.
This is my second visit to Venicia Restaurant which is located inside the Casa Venicia Condominium compound. The Venitia restaurant occupies the 1st Floor of the condominium clubhouse and you have to surrender your driving license at the guardhouse before you are allowed to enter the area. They have managed to maintain their food quality over the years and also a steady stream of visit from their regular customers. Since the restaurant occupies only a small area, it is best that you pre booked your table first. It can be packed with diners during peak hours! We ordered their famous Tai Tow Har (large head freshwater prawns, udang galah, RM100 per kilogram), spicy grouper, tofu with fish maw, 4 types of vegetable, yau mak and Thai style fried tofu.
I can’t remember the exact figure of the bill because my brother in law paid for the meal but I think it was around RM130 to RM140 for 6 adults and 2 toddlers. LOL!
The tai tow har (udang galah, freshwater river prawns) are fried in oil with shallots added. This dish cost us RM55 but it was worth it because the prawns are fresh and the gravy is very tasty.

We ordered braised japanese soft tofu for the kids, so that they have some gravy to put on their rice. I love the fish maw!

The deep fried Grouper fish in sweet chilly sauce is very tasty as well. All the flesh was gone in no time once it was served, just left the bones! LOL!

The stir fried yau mak had deep fried crispy white bait fish as garnish. Nothing to shout about this dish, except that the yau mak is fresh and crunchy!

It has been quite some time since I last at Thai Style fried tofu. We used to order this in a pub in Taman Sea, PJ, whenever I have drinking session with my business associates. Anyway, my pub hopping days are over. Back to the tofu dish, they are very generous with the grounded peanuts......nice dish!

Ahhh, this is my favourite dish, 4 types of vegetables. They are petai, four angle beans, long beans and French beans, all fried in sambal sauce. I love the crunchy petai, delicious!
