A day tour at Tanjung Sepat, Selangor

During my trip to Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia, we joined Uncle Mike and his friends for a day tour to Tanjung Sepat. It is a fishing village and also a small town in Kuala Langat District in Selangor, Malaysia. It took us 1.5 hours to reach there by car from Subang Jaya.

The famous icon in Tanjung Sepat is the Lover's Bridge. How can we, the vain pot miss the opportunity to take photos of ourselves against the famous landmark?

Tanjung Sepat is a good place to have delicious and affordable seafood and also spend quality time with friends, family and loved ones.

We settled at Ocean Seafood Restaurant, which is located directly besides the Lover's Bridge for our lunch. We ordered some signature dishes like Fried Bee Hoon with Crabs, Oyster Omelette, Fried Sotong and Steamed Fish in Teochew Style.

The only down-side is the toilet as we can hardly find any clean modern toilet at Tanjung Sepat. It was  rather ironic, as seeing that there were so many tourists, I'm sure they can afford to have better facilities with the amount of revenue being earned.

We went to Pantai Morib for some drinks and we enjoyed quality time together by strolling at the beach while leisurely holding hands. We took some beautiful photos of the scenic beach, and we loved the feeling of serenity.

We ended our day trip for a meal at the famous Beggar's Chicken Feast Dinner Restaurant. The eatery place that we went to, has been selling Beggar's Chicken for decades.

To make this dish, mud is an essential 'ingredient' that is required for this wonderful dish. No modern or up-to-date cooking equipments are used in the cooking process. It is cooked in a traditional cooking method from the scratch.

The chicken is wrapped in wax paper and then covered by mud and lastly baked on a charcoal hot bed in the oven room. After it was cooked, the mud covering the wrapped chicken was broken with a hammer, and the Beggar's Chicken is unwrapped with a nice golden brown texture.

Denote: Beggar's Chicken needs 8 hours to prep and cook, so placing the order at least 1 day in advance is a MUST! 

I love the Steamed Glutinous Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf, and the rice is nicely steamed and fragrant. I helped myself to a few servings as it was so delicious and I couldn’t stop myself from having more. We had some greenies as well to balance off our intake of meat.

I enjoyed eating the fish dish as well, which was very unique. The whole fish had been de-boned and the meat had been carefully stripped off to be made into fish paste, which was then wrapped by the fish skin and then deep fried. It was served in creative manner by forming back to its original look. An amazing and unique dish, indeed!

I had a satisfying meal and the damage was RM30 per pax. I experienced a traditional and unique way of food cooking which brought me back to my roots. I truly agreed that OLD is GOLD!
