Thong Hsing @ Tanjung Sepat

22 03 2011

Tanjung Sepat is a fishing village just off Morib town. The place reminds me of the rustic ‘kampung’ back in the old days. One of the attraction of Tanjung Sepat is Thong Hsing fishball and yong tau foo factory. The factory is located inside a wooden house which has many workers skillfully wrapping dumpling skin with fish fillet with their hands. Here is one of the picture of the little dumplings lined up on the tray.

Hai Yew Heng @ Tanjung Sepat

Prior to my trip to Tanjung Sepat, I heard a lot of hype about the famous bao (bun) at Tanjung Sepat. Some even claimed that the business was so good till customers have to pre-order via telephone beforehand. Otherwise, they have to wait for 2 hours to purchase those buns. Even celebrities from Hong Kong came and ate the famous bao, which is a testament of how good the buns must be.

Located at Jalan Pasar, Hai Yew Heng was indeed a standout from the rest of the shop there. I supposed the house where the buns were produced has undergone a recent renovation judging from the fresh coat of paint and air-conditioning facilities.

Inside, workers are busy preparing the buns on a large piece of metal table.

Ingredients such as ‘mui choi’ and ‘choi bao’ were seen lying next to the table.

There was an old coffee shop just opposite the road, which I presume belongs to the same owner since we could also order the bao from there.

Each bun came with a piece of paper underneath with the name and address printed out.

I had the pork meat bao (RM 2.20). Inside there was a big chunk of meat and a piece of boiled egg.

While some people like it, it was only average for me. After hearing so much hype about the buns, I was rather let down by it. Not that it tasted bad, but it wasn’t as good as I imagined it to be.

The rest of the bao sold are salted vegetable bao (RM 2.00), red bean bao (RM 1.40), kaya bao (RM 1.40), peanut bao (RM 1.40) and vegetable bao (RM 1.40).

Restoran YiKee Seafood Bak Kut Teh @ Tanjung Sepat

17 01 2011

One fine weekend, I made a trip down to Tanjung Sepat with my in-laws. Tanjung Sepat is a well-known fishing town just 18km south-east of Morib town. One of the local attractions in this place is YiKee Seafood Bak Kut Teh. Located at the intersection of Jalan Besar and Lorong 7, this quaint restaurant was certainly a crowd puller judging by the morning crowd.

While I had tried all sort of Bak Kut Teh in Klang Valley, seafood Bak Kut Teh was something new to me. From what I understand, the owner came up with this idea of selling seafood Bak Kut Teh when some of its local customers brought along their catch of the day and requested it to be cooked with the Bak Kut Teh broth.

The fresh seafood and other raw ingredients can be seen on the counter top where the owner, Mr. Chia was busy preparing Bak Kut Teh of all sorts for his customers.

Apart from the seafood Bak Kut Teh, YiKee does sell pork based Bak Kut Teh as well. But somehow I didn’t quite enjoy it that much as the soup was rather diluted as compared to thicker version which I generally prefer.

The Prawn Bak Kut Teh was a different story altogether. The sweetness of the seafood flavour really makes the broth tasty. I kept drinking the soup while enjoying the fresh prawns.

The fish paste clear soup will certainly delight those who like strong taste of black pepper with a tinge of sour taste in the soup.

All in all, the bill came up to RM 141. 50 for 10 pax. Quite cheap considering the the amount of seafood that was served in each claypot.
