Honestly, I’ve been waiting for this day to come for a very long time. When opportunity struck, there is just an answer and YES, let’s go and have some prawns~! No place is more famous with its freshwater prawns other than Tanjung Tualang, and this tiny, quaint town is located almost 30km away from Batu Gajah and a further 45km away from Ipoh. If you are coming from Ipoh, do not forget to drop by the one and only tin dredge in Perak.
Now, coming back to the food, we were in dilemma whether to eat at Luen Fong or Lung Seng or Sun Mee Fong. The latter is recommended by Axian, a TV food expert but one of us had bad experience with Luen Fong, so we ultimately decided to go with Lung Seng. And don’t fret because all the shops are located near to each other. If you can’t decide, just follow your heart. After all, when it comes to prawn, we are all in unity right?
Pai kuat wong loosely translates to king of pork ribs. The meat is a bit chewy, but still we licked the plate clean.
Next on the table… Nestum prawns. Oh my.. the meat is so succulent and fresh. God-sent!
Steamed prawns with egg whites with a hint of chinese rice wine. It’s lightly flavoured as not to hide the sweetness of the prawn.
We also ordered a steamed catfish or “pak sou kong” to balance out the meal.
The meal cost about RM90 for the five of us, which is quite reasonable considering the amount of prawns that we had. ;P
