Lunch by the sea

Kuala Sepetang is well known for its fresh seafood and curry mee, as well as the tua pao.
FIL brought us for a seafood lunch last Sunday, together with my parents. It's called the Port Weld Restaurant, 十八丁海上食店.
It was a hot afternoon, but still the restaurant is almost full house. Luckily the service was fast so we dint wait for so long ;)

downstair, it's a small port for the fishermen to gather the freshly caught fishes. upstair, it's the restaurant

this is the view you'll see while enjoying the good food!

all sorts of fresh seafood, ranging from fishes, crabs, squids....

to edible murex, scallops etc etc....

cooling coconut to quech thirst at this hot day

1st dish to arrive, stir fry Japanese winter lotus

steamed murex shells

deep fried shrimps

stir fried kappa

otak otak

steamed mantis prawns

steamed stingray fish

fried curry sotong

crabs with sweet honey sauce

yellow noodles with oysters (unfortunately, we returned this dish to the cook as the oysters were not fresh, there was a weird taste of the whole noodles =_=)

deep fried baby sotong with honey

we did not order rice so these dishes are just nice for all of us ;)
The seafood price is reasonable, however, do check and confirm with the staffs there for the bill especially when there're lots of customers. One of the staff actually given us the wrong bill of the table next to us =_=

If anytime you come Taiping, you can try the seafood here!
