Let’s talk about food. This topic can arouse the attention of happy food-goers who are willing to travel miles just to taste some of the best local food. We blogged on Star Chef Seafood Restaurant at Gelang Patah previously and after that dining experience, we were hungry for more.
Chua Kee Seafood Gelang Patah Johor 蔡記海鲜
Nestled at Jalan Nusaria 3, Taman Nusantara, 81550 Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia is where you can find popular Chua Kee Seafood Gelang Patah Johor 蔡記海鲜.
A quick google check shows the distance of Restoran Chua Kee to Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour is just 11km or 15 min drive.
We were there during lunch time and the sun was scorching hot. There are ceiling fans and we were just glad to find seats around that area.
As you can see, Chua Kee Seafood Gelang Patah Johor 蔡記海鲜 is a restoran selling the usual “zi-char” dishes. The setting is definitely not contemporary but there must be something about their dishes that draw crowds of customers.

Durian for Thought
We were in for a treat as durian season is here again. Just across Chua Kee Seafood was a durian stall.
Are you a durian lover? It packed a different feel if you get the chance to try durians in Malaysia. The stall owner grew these durians by himself and called them as “kampung” durians.
3kg for RM $60
Small M, obviously is not a fan for durian …
Although it was not fantastic, these kampung durians come with many seeds and full of flesh 🙂
It was nice that Chua Kee allowed us to eat the durians here provided we cleared them after eating.
