Kuala Sepetang Fishing Village

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, we decided to have our lunch cum dinner in Kuala Sepetang. Why lunch cum dinner? I do not know what it is called because by the time we reached this place, it was almost 4pm....

We did not want to go during dinner time because by then, the crowd would be there and furthermore the road going in is quite jammed up because of the night market. (pasar malam) So the best time is to go around this time... between (4-6pm)

narrow road leading into the jetty..

slight drizzle when we reached...

While waiting for the food to come, I went round clicking here and there... I guess some of you have seen these before... this is a very familiar scene when you are sitting on top and the boats are just below....

real typical fishing jetty...

back from fishing...

fishermen's livelihood is here...

can see the sunset if we stay long enough...

love watching this scenery...

and then SUDDENLY...

something red was put on our table! :)

we ordered "Yim Kook Hai"
(Steamed salty crabs)

followed by a plate of noodles..
not so nice.. no Wok smell...

but this Tong Oh was very good.. fresh and young..

then lastly and not least.. we ordered a piece of fishlet..

steamed teochiew style...
it came out very nice.. not overcooked at all..
with the sourish sauce, it sure increased our appetite!
For these dishes, it came to RM62 ($20usd)
I think it is reasonable... right?

  11. I love these pictures of the colorful boats!!! I think you did post some like this a few years back, but cannot remember much about them now. YES!!! You finally have included U.S.A. money!!! Now I know how much your food costs! I can't believe this was so cheap. Just to tell you, if I got one crab with maybe a side dish of french fries and a drink, it would be close to that price. And you got all that!! Maybe because it was fresh from the sea and was caught right there, we are not near a fishing port.

  12. No wonder you can eat out so often, food is much more expensive here! Except for fast food like McDonald's. A lot of poor people here eat at McDonald's because it is cheaper then even cooking at home, but so much fat and bad for your health, this is why so many heart attacks here.

  14. Looks like you had a lovely meal. I have never eaten crab meat or lobster. I do like fish and shrimp, and the shrimp can be cooked in garlic butter, made up into a shrimp cocktail or breaded and deep fried. I just like shrimp. Have a great week ahead.
