PETALING JAYA: With many people staying and working at home during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), heading out to grab lunch at restaurants and dining in are somewhat of a rarity these days.
Restaurants are pivoting and embracing food delivery services to keep their businesses alive and going, and Malaysians are now spoilt for choice when it comes to delivery food options.
But why stick with the usual fast food when you can try something fancier and classier for a change, without burning a hole in your wallet?
This is where Captain Shrimp comes sailing in with its impressive and affordable menu of authentic American, Tex-Mex and seafood dishes.
Customers can fill their mouths and bellies with tasty treats from 10am to 11.45pm, simply by placing an order through WhatsApp. Details of the estimated arrival time will be then be sent to the customer shortly after.
As long as you are based within the Klang Valley, you can expect your doorbell to ring within the next 30 to 45 minutes.
If you’re having a particularly big feast with your family, purchases above RM150 are entitled to tantalising discounts. Clearly, Captain Shrimp believes that ‘more is more’.
You can also choose from the Mini Buffet menu which has a wide selection of dishes available, which is perfect for small parties. Preparation is entirely on Captain Shrimp’s part, with disposable cutleries, plates and serviettes included in the package.
Again, if you’re afraid that this Mini Buffet will set your wallet ablaze, fret not, as this mini catering service can be explicitly tailored for customers who have a budget to keep.
But what can one expect to find on Captain Shrimp’s extensive menu? And what’s likely to send you to food nirvana more?
Perhaps you could start with the Outrageous Beef Tacos, which consist of butter-toasted flour tortillas filled with an array of wonderful ingredients. Every blissful bite will please the palate as each crunchy taco is chock-full of braised beef, Roma sauce, onion puree, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and cheese sauce.
If the combination of chicken and carbs is what you seek, you could give the Blackened Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta a try. Atop the creamy Alfredo pasta, you will find a juicy piece of chicken breast grilled with corn oil, paprika, salt, cayenne, cumin, thyme, white pepper and onion powder.
The Pasta Seafood Marinara is also worth a shout-out. Two large and juicy prawns accompany the spaghetti, which is cooked in tangy marinara sauce. As your slurp up this divine meal, bite into the prawns and indulge in the unparalleled taste of fresh seafood infused with the exquisite velvety texture of the marinara.
You can never go wrong with the classic favourites, and that’s certainly true with Captain Shrimp’s Baked Mac and Cheese. Outrageously cheesy and extremely creamy, it is also topped with breadcrumbs – which effectively introduces a welcome crunch to the dish.
Thinking of munching on something while enjoying the latest shows on Netflix? Nachos are the perfect snack for such an occasion and Captain Shrimp has just the thing for you. They are the absolutely-loaded Beef Nachos seasoned with Cajun spices.
Served with a generous serving of Jalapeno and cherry tomatoes, you simply must try out the two dipping sauces made from different cheese types.
Just in case you won’t be satisfied with just the nachos, the Texas BBQ Wings also make for a good snack, as do the Fried Breaded Onion Rings.
The former has just the right combination of heat, tanginess and smokiness while the latter is coated with more crunchy breadcrumbs that complement the distinctly sweet taste of onions.
The Calamari Rings also make quite the appetiser, with springy squid coated in a thick and crunchy outer layer. Don’t hesitate to dunk the rings into the cheese dip and enjoy a cheesy seafood experience.
The Chicken Quesadilla is also a must-try for lovers of all things cheesy, as these bad boys are loaded with two types of melted cheese. The main meat of this dish is a flavourful fajita-style chicken accompanied by generous fillings of capsicum and spicy peppers.
And what would Captain Shrimp be if there was no shrimp on the menu? There is, of course, the delicious Fried Cajun Shrimp, a bestseller that serves not only large but also crispy and crunchy shrimps.
To end things on a sweet note, the Oreo Madness will do just the trick with its combination of ice-cream topped with finely-crushed Oreo cookies and chocolate sauce. What could be a more perfect way to end a perfect feast?
With delicious food, reliable delivery and affordable prices, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t drop Captain Shrimp a WhatsApp message to try out some of these treats for yourself!
