A great lunch with flies

Last Sunday, the gang and I went to Bagan Samak for lunch. The restaurant is famous for its fresh water food, it was introduced by my FIL some times back.

The restaurant is in a chinese village at Bagan Samak (The journey is about 30 mins, from Taiping). It has no air conditioner (so it's quite hot actually) and has lots of flies..... But trust me, the food would make you forget about these frust...

8 of us...

We waited for like 20 mins++ due to the crowd. And now, the food.....

Steamed goby fish (南哥鱼). It was a big and fat one! Very fresh too!

Salted chicken (盐炬鸡), this one was not bad...

Fried prawns with curry powder (must try). It may look spicy but it's not. We were not lucky enough that day as they din't have big head prawns, so this is the medium size ones. For the big head prawns, the head itself is about 7cm-8cm long =_=

Stir fry vegetables (this one taste normal)

Another must try, deep fried red snapper (三味金凤鱼). The gravy is so sweet and nice, and the fish is deep fried until it's very crunchy, so crunchy until you can eat the bones too.

Last but not least, stir fry tofu (this one taste normal)

Now, you may want to know how much for the bill. We estimated about RM200++? Cause the goby fish itself also about RM100++ already. That's what we estimated, the exact price is unknown because, someone else paid for us. FIL's friend was there when we reached, and he was so generous to belanja all of us. Thank you uncle, the next time you're going there do let me know ya! wakakakak =D
