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?
It was about 3:30pm when we arrived from Sitiawan, and immediately we summoned the captain and placed the order.
