I have stayed in the North for almost 12 years now but never did I realise that there stood a restaurant directly next to the sea, hidden deep behind the winding road to the SAF Yacht Club. The entrance is easy to miss and many would assume that its just another road to the military camp. Yet, the trip there makes the entire journey worth it as one is rewarded with a breathtaking upclose view of the Straits and Johor right across.
I arrived sometime after six thirty and was just in time to catch the dwindling sun over the horizon. What appeared to be a radiant sky of blue and white soon became an orange reddish glow, personifying a vitalised sense of warmth and tenderness.
And together with the occasional touch of sea breeze wafting a sense of sea saltiness and freshness in the air that this dinner by the straits begins.
Galley by the Straits features a wide range of cuisines on its menu. Western, BBQ, traditional Cze Char and seafood, the variety seemingly aims to please almost every other local palate of its diners. And it is without doubt that for the dinner tonight, it is almost only natural that seafood would win hands down.
