The Ship

While everybody blogs about Chinese New Year food, I will blog about Western food. 

I took a day off from work last Monday together with hubby so that we could go for a nice outing (without the boys *chuckle*). We went to a very nice old place, in Jalan Bukit Bintang - The Ship, yay!  

I had the seafood chowder.


Hubby had the creamy crab meat and corn soup.


I also tried their creamed spinach. Delicious!


For my main course, I ordered the seafood au-gratin. It has oysters, scallops, fish, squid and prawns inside, covered with bechamel sauce, topped with baked cheese. Ooooh la la, delicious to the max!


Hubby ordered the ribeye steak.


We had an enjoyable lunch, and I did a lot of walking and shopping too at Sg. Wang - an old place, full of memories for many I guess.

  1. I always stayed at Bukit Bintang and I always wanted to drop by The Ship...but I never got round to doing that. Did go to the fun pub upstairs a few times though - those days when I could still drink. I hear the food is very good...but the place is too dark to take nice pictures.

    1. Oh yes, the place is very dark.. Been like this since day1, dark place, but there's a pub upstairs.. Food is good, old school, old waitresses, old place, but everything is nice there - the soup, main course, even the banana split, hehe..

LOL

    2. wah, so happy ah?? both took leave together, ditched the kids and go paktor chang toi geok woh.. The Ship!! yes of course I know this place but then too bad la, I have actually not been there before though I always wanted to try.. this restaurant was very "bah bai" among our parents' generation one leh, you know?? I think they still like to go there for gatherings and what nots geh..

    3. the food must taste superb though I think they are still too old school to have those wowable presebtation like many contemporary (and overpriced) restaurant out there.. so it's like a very "frank" meal, you won't see flamboyant presentation but what you see is probably what you taste, good thing huh??

      the seafood chowder if not mistaken is one of their famous dishes leh, and can see lots of liu inside woh.. the seafood au gratin and steak also looks good to me.. but then hor, are you sure those were what you ordered ah?? cannot be lah, Princess Ribbon ABC woh, eat so little only meh?? sure there were more you ordered to wallop one.. especially that you walked so much for the day, sure hungry and can eat a whole cow gak!!! come come come, show us all what you ordered!!!

    4. Haha, won't kena hentam and boycott la, memang ma, we are speaking the truth, same food everywhere - pak cham gai, yee sang, steamed fish, braised meat with sea cucumber, pineapple tarts, so leh, it's good to have some steamboat or western food now, hor?

      Mil used to have steamboat for reunion dinner for the past 2 years, but the rest "sik dou geng" (eat until scared) jor.. CNY eve tak habis the "liew", so they gotta eat the "liew" for the next 4-5 days !! Cook maggi mee or whatever, dump a few pieces of "liew" inside, so they scared jor loooo, no more steamboat..

      Oh yes, tu kei happy geh, we sent the boys to the daycare, and we went out for some shopping in Time Sq first, but most of the shops tak bukak leh, like mm yau jou like that, so we went to have lunch first, then back to Sg. Wang (coz we need to get to Sg. Wang to cross over to The Ship), wah, all shops open jor in Sg. Wang, very "yit lau", so I did some shopping lor, bought some dresses and shoes..

      Food is nice, like you said, old school.. Their fish & chips, chicken maryland and banana split ice cream still taste very nice, haha.. But of course I don't order fish & chips and chicken chop la, ngam mou? Eh, these was the only food we ordered la, coz I still munch this that in Sg. Wang and Time Sq.. I munched Famous Amos in Sg. Wang, then when we were back to Time Sq (coz we park our car there), I munched on some hotdog bread from Aunty Anne.. hahahahaha.. Fei sei ngor loooooo..

  3. Whoooaaa! So romantic! Both of you should sail the ship more often and do the Titanic pose at the door! Wakakakaka

    They just opened a brand new one at the corner of Jaya33. I want to try that one as I believe it would not stink like the one at Uptown. Your Cream Spinach really attracted my attention to go and eat there this week!

    1. I wish we could sail the ship more often, haha, but I think it only happens once in a blue moon, coz hubby seldom takes leaves.. Only me, the naughty one, tipu MC once a month to go do my hair and stay at home watch Astro.. Ooops, *shhhhh*

  4. I have many friends who have kids now, and all of them are like you, they look forward to having the occasional paktor time without the kids in tow.

    Our generation, we still think The Ship is a very "atas" place to dine in, but my sister and juniors, they will: "Huh? The Ship? That lousy place? Cheh!"... Tsk, kids nowadays...

    1. Might look lousy to some, dark place and location not very strategic, coz we cannot cross over from BB Plaza to The Ship already.. Have to walk one big round from an entrance in BB Plaza (they would close down soon), turn one big round to Lot 10, cross the traffic light (I think two traffic lights), walk half a round, then only sampai The Ship..

      Price is atas leh, this meal cost RM170++ ...

    2. Waah! Pengsan lah, RM170++ meals! My ship will sink la.

  6. Louiz, that was a nice outing! For once lah just two of you without the kids to kacau hee..hee... I like The Ship and have been to the one in Bukit Bintang only once. I usually go to the one in Damansara Utama but not that often. My favourite is either the steak or the chicken maryland. The one your ordered not ngam for me because it is too cheesy.

    1. Oh yes, the sauce is very very milky, creamy and cheesy, it's actually very "nau", but I like it, coz it makes me full after that.. The creamed spinach really taste like cream, nice !!

  14. Hi Louiz,

    Not very CNY??? No leh. I see that you have change your profile picture into a pretty picture of you with a very CNY red outfit.

    I think you are not the only one who blog about non-CNY food... I saw Phong Hong ate non-Chinese food recently too. Whether Chinese food or not, I guess being happy feasting is the main purpose of dining out... Everything that you had in the Ship looks yum!

  19. My dad is a huge fan of The Ship so we've always dined there at different stages of our growing up (we still do to this day!). I've never tried the creamed spinach, though. Super tempted!!

    1. Sedap !! You must go try, but the texture is like cream, a bit sandy (coz spinach has a lot of sand nomatter how thorough you washed it)..
