Wonderland Food Store

Looking for a place to eat in Langkawi? Wonderland Food Store is somewhere not to be missed. While on holiday in Pulau Langkawi with a group of buddies, we decided to give Wonderland Food Store a try.

As Langkawi is an island, seafood is naturally much cheaper than many other places. Wonderland Food Store is located in the town of Kuah and is frequented by many.

Fried Koay Teow @ RM5.00
Ordinary tasting fried flat rice noodles with beansprouts, egg and slices of chicken. The koay teow was evenly fried but was a tad too oily and salty.

Fried Rice @ RM5.00
Yet another ordinary dish. This normal fried rice is garnished with egg and slices of chicken. The fried rice is acceptable in taste and is nothing special.

Fried Sambal Belacan Kangkung (Medium) @ RM14.00
A large plate of kangkung fried with spicy sambal belacan. Just another ordinary dish that you can find practically everywhere in Malaysia. Sambal belacan is blended chilli paste with dried shrimp paste (belacan). The dish lacked spiciness and had massive chunks of garlic (something I extremely disliked). A great green to have on the table though.

Deep Fried Squid (Small) @ RM10.00
One of the best deep fried squid I have had recently. The small pieces of squid is something similar to calamari rings but uses smaller squids and is deep fried in a salted batter. Crispy and not too oily although it was deep fried.

Chilli Flower Crab @ RM45.00
Although disappointed with the unavailability of the normal mud crab (those large red crabs with extremely hard shells), we ordered chilli flower crab instead. 3 medium sized flower crab stir fried with special blended chilli paste. The freshness of the flower crab was average but the flower crabs was well flavoured with the chilli sauce.

Nestum Prawns @ RM12.00
Superb tasting Nestum prawns! Crispy deep fried prawns stir fried with Nestum and curry leaves. Although the prawns lack a hint of salt and sugar, the prawns were still tasteful! Definitely recommended!

A great place for seafood; for the price paid it was definitely cheap! All the dishes above plus drinks and a small plate of stir fried clams in chilli (which I forgot to take a picture) for 5 pax was only RM109! Generally, the seafood was fresh and well cooked.

Wonderland Food Store is located in Pusat Perniagaan Kelana Mas (Lot 179, 180, 181, Pusat Perniagaan Kelana Mas, Jalan Trimula, Kuah, 07000 Langkawi) amongst a cluster of seafood store. Easily spotted as Wonderland Food Store has a large yellow sign. There are numerous off street parking but at dinner time they may be fully occupied.

Food Rating: 8/10
Service rating: 7/10
Ambience rating: 6/10
*typical food store or hawker like surrounding; there was a cat running around the place which was of much annoyance
Overall rating: 7/10
