Here at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company @ the Curve,
Food is super-sized.
Sea of FRESH shrimps are the way to go..
Coconut Shrimp, fried shrimp, tempura shrimp, fries.
Bubba’s After the Storm “Bucket of boat trash”.
Deep fried shrimp, lobster tail and fish fillets served with Bubba’s Cocktail sauce & butter oil.
Run Across America Sampler.
Bubba’s Far Out Dip & chips. chilly shrimps, spicy Chicken Strips, Hush Pups & Mama’s Blue Fried Shrimp
Lt Dan’s Drunken Shrimp. Large chargrilled shrimp & spicy sausage with mash & non- alcoholic bourbon sauce
Entertainment was hilarious …
(thanks to a sporting EuVeng and the cheering team of Bubba Gump!)
Meats were done very well too..
…the Grilled Lamb was one of the stellar dishes that night, though the BBQ ribs were dissappointingly dry.
The Cajun chicken fared better………
I love the Pear & Berry Salad..……..
Desserts were sweet but forgettable, except for the “That Chocolate Thing“, which was akin to a molten lava in a glass.
The Far Out Dip is by far my personal favourite. During the session, it came together as part the Run Across America Sampler. Think mushy Spinach quiche filling; (for the lack of a better description), creamy & rich, all blended into a dip which consist of roasted red peppers, artichokes & Monterey Jack Cheese. Supposedly paired with homemade tortilla chips, I just dug in on it’s own, for it’s that :good:
On the whole, food were generally faultless & seafood served were fresh (I would have complained if otherwise!). Although I’m not a shrimp fan, I still enjoyed the many variations of shrimps, from deep fried ones (which is basically coated in different batter), to chilled shrimps, shrimps in cream sauce (from the linguini) & chargrilled ones in bourbon sauce, which was delicious! So essentially, there is something for everyone, even for a non-shrimp fan.
But if you are really really allergic to seafood & got tricked/dragged/blindfolded into Bubba Gump, fret not! Just zoom in for the grilled lamb. Done medium, it’s tasty enough for it’s price. I wouldn’t personally recommend the BBQ ribs and chicken, as I find the ribs dry and flaky. The chicken was fine though; as it was tender and well-marinated.
A vegan? On a diet? Constipated? 😉
Salads are the perfect remedy then! Though it’s just normal lettuce (seriously, restaurants serving salads can take a point or 2 from California Pizza Kitchen, whose salads is truly worthy to be defined as salads; where there’s more variety of greens than just the cheap lettuce!), what got me hooked was the sweetish, slightly tangy raspberry vinaigrette which was a refreshing twist to the customary boring balsamic vinaigrettes.
The charbroiled chicken is tasty, the strawberries & pears sweet & the glazed pecans crunchy. Overall this makes for a satisfactory salad :good:
Note: There are 2 other salads options here as well.
I ordered a Alabama Sweet Smoothie (RM11.90) – Peanut Butter, choc and non-fat Vanilla Frozen Yogurt and found it thick, rich & as good as a smoothie should be.
