Top Catch Fisheries, Taman OUG, KL

We finally made the effort to visit Top Catch Fisheries in OUG last week when our sashimi cravings kicked in.  Parking in that area is a bit of a problem, so we parked a little further way and walked to the shop.

Top Catch Fisheries is essentially a fishmonger, albeit in a clean, air-conditioned environment. When we arrived at the shop, we saw that they had no more salmon sashimi in the display counter, but the guy at the counter kindly offered to slice a new tray for us. While he sliced the fish, we looked around the shop. They have chilled salmon fillets, as well as lots of frozen seafood items on sale such as scallops, mussels, clam, cod and more. The prices seem pretty reasonable for the frozen items.

As they have no seating area in the shop (only a small standing area in the corner of the shop), we decided to bring our sashimi home to eat. We got two trays of salmon sashimi, and each tray costs RM27. They also provide you with wasabi for every tray purchased.

To be honest, I had high expectations of the salmon sashimi here, as I have been told many times about how good it is. Texturewise, the fish was firm and meaty. Sadly, the quality is just mediocre in my opinion - 1/3 of the tray was good and 2/3 was not that great as it had a really strong fishy smell and taste, so it was not to my liking.  Nevertheless, if you want reasonably priced sashimi, you can consider this shop.
