Fu Mei Seafood Restaurant 富美活海鮮

This area is a popular stop for enjoying fresh seafood in Su-ao, where we enjoyed extremely fresh lobster. We first experience dining here when we celebrated the Chinese New Year. There is no menu on the table but they were having set meals. The staff will tell you that everything you need to know is right there in front of you. A water tanks containing fresh live sea creatures for your choices with specifying price by weight. Which type of seafood  do you want and how do you want it cooked, steam or stir fry, sashimi  and etc?
First dishes, which arrived simultaneously is a classic dish that combines flavors well and unique stir fry wild grown vegetables lightly flavored with ginger, black beans and small dry fish are very juicy yet fresh and crunchy.
Although the highlight dish is lobster, we ordered a Boston lobster for the price around Nt$1,500 appeared, steamed and served it on a bed of bean thread noodles in light and flavoursome soup. The lobster is very fresh and it melt in the mouth.
Next up is the sweet and sour scallops was very colorful and the photographs were visually delicious.
We selected a good-sized crab and this weighed in at just over NT$1,400. We ordered it steamed served with a vinegar dipping sauce.
This was the fish chose by my husband. A steamed seabass, frankly, I preferred the fried one which does not look very appealing when it came to the table. Lightly flavored with ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce, garnished with spring onion. The white flesh was very fresh and soft yet still firm.
Stir-fried clams with thick oyster sauce wasn't too impressive, but clam meat was fresh and fleshy.
This was also another interesting dish. The tender razor clams were absolutely delicious in a bed garlic lightly flavor broth, garnished with spring onion.
Last but not least is steamed prawns served with a soy wasabi dipping sauce. These steamed prawns were fresh and sweet. It doesn't get any fresher than that. If you're looking for exquisite fresh seafood in Su Ao Yilan, I really recommend this restaurant.
