Shell Out @ Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara

Going crustacean-crazy at this new seafood restaurant, where customers won't have to shell out too much cash to savor an ocean's bounty.

Nautical ornamentation of fishing nets, lifebuoys & shellfish-themed wall artwork ensure that even landlubbers know what to expect. Forget about feasting on fowl here.

Aussie crayfish steals the spotlight; it's well worth getting our hands dirty to scrape out every sweetly moist morsel of meat. RM42.90+ per 500 grams.

Shell Out's sauces include Cajun Sensation, Lemon Pepper & Garlic Butter. Levels of spiciness range from Mild to Medium to OMG.

Shell Out's opening promo makes us happy as a clam: Get 300 grams of mollusks free for every 500 grams of crayfish ordered. Offer valid through June 16.

Meaty crabs, RM7.50++ per 100 grams, about RM20 per crab. Shell Out's forte is fantastic freshness; much of its seafood is kept live here, as far as possible.

Prawns, RM26.90++ for 300 grams. Caution: Customers who must nitpick might pounce on the flavorful sauces, which threaten to prove overpowering sometimes.

Battered baskets are available too, showcasing steaming-hot, crispy-juicy shrimp, shishamo & calamari with fries, roughly RM10++ each.

In the aftermath, the carnage is absolute: No crayfish survives to tell the tale.

Shell Out will charge corkage eventually but not for now. Denise Wine Shop is 100 meters away on a nearby road.

    1. Mr Lonely: i guess imported seafood is relatively costly. the good news is that 1kg is RM74++, so it might be more worthwhile to order that amount =)
