Father’s Day Seafood Dinner @Restoran Todak, Johor

For this year Father’s Day, we headed over to Johor for seafood at Restoran Todak which is just across the Straits of Johore from Sembawang Shipyard.  As we started in the late afternoon around 3:30pm, jams at both immigration were mild.  We arrived at the restoran at about 5pm and it wasn’t crowded yet, and we got a table without much trouble even though we didn’t make any reservation.  By around 7pm, the place was really crowded probably due to the weekend as well as Father’s Day.

12 of us from members of my, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law families, and my parents-in -law, we ordered black pepper crabs, salted egg crabs, calamari, curry tiger prawns, crayfish, sambal shellfish, hotplate toufu, sambal kangkong, Hokkien noodle, horfun, 12 fresh coconuts, some soft drinks and 2 bottles of beer.  Total damage is only RM435!

Directions:  After clearing immigration, turn onto Teberau Highway.  Then turn right onto Jalan Bakar Batu and continue straight onto Jalan Pandai.  Will need to make a U-turn as there is no right turn from the highway.  End of this road, turn right for a very short distance and you will see Restoran Todak.  Click on map for larger view.
