I’m going for holiday in 4 hours so this will be short and cincai :D
Tambun is a small fishing village for good inexpensive seafood. Whenever we come here, we always patronise this restaurant at the end of the narrow road. A platform built on top of the water became sitting area for customers. The view and the slushing sound from below are just the right ambience for some serious hand-dirtying, shellfish digging.
The serene surrounding is very relaxing.
On Labour’s Day, cars mostly from outstation already filled up the parking lots. When we got into the restaurant, every table was occupied and we had to sit near to the entrance. There is a makeshift stall selling agar-agar and konnyaku jelly.
The kitchen. Can’t expect it to be hygienic. A few cooks had no shirts on and one was smoking while working the wok.
Hot and spicy condiments
Stir fried mee sua with fresh prawns and bean sprouts. The prawns are sweet and tastewise, the dish is delicious, albeit lacking in wok hei. RM 6.
Sweet vegetable (I forgot what it’s called) with a dash of oyster sauce. RM 5.
Mantis prawns. We had them plain and they were sweet, but has a bit of muddy taste. RM 12.
Steamed stingray in ginger soy sauce. Although it looks plain but this is the best way to eat it. The flesh is so smooth and tastes absolutely fresh. Best dish of out of the bunch. RM 14.
Thorny, spiky snail (siput duri). Toothpicks are given to pierce the flesh out of the shell, then dip into chili sauce and chew away! RM 6.. woh, cheap cheap!
This delectable satay is from a stall nearby. It’s parked beside the restaurant, near to the jetty. Since the stir fried noodle disappoints in the wok hei aspect, this satay totally makes up for it. It’s chunky with meat and a few slices of fat inserted in between (which can be easily removed) to give that umph flavour.
