Bagan Seafood Restaurant

Sunset, seafood and scintillating conversation, an enticement for us to brave a weekday traffic and go to Pulau Langat for dinner. After an age on the highway, bumping through a palm oil estate, avoiding dogs with attitude, a herd of goats and a goose with a naughty behind we arrive in time for sunset on to find… the restaurant is gone! Closed, boarded up, a sign in Chinese indicating probably a new venue but alas! None of us are Cantonese literate.

The romantic boat where you can have dinner under scarlett tanglongs is now a concrete field.

Stuck in nowhere between Klang and Banting and by now quite ravenous we decided to go to Tanjung Harapan for seafood. “Yes, down the road that looks dark and dodgy”, says our friend. It’s Sleepy Hollow kind of creepy. “Are you sure there’s something down there? Swear it,” I stalked her on the phone.

“Yes, yes, I swear I was there last week.” And then, suddenly out of nowhere are two brightly lit artificial ponds. For recreational fishing. It was packed for a Tuesday night. Where do all these people come from? Has Klang such little entertainment? And it’s opened 24 hours! So now we know where insomniac fisher-wannabes hang out.

Beside these ponds, a beacon of hope shines in neon. Bagan seafood- a large airy restaurant halfway into the swamp with fishing nets covering the front part. “Suicidal birds,” explains the waitress.

So it’s crabs cooked in ‘butter basah’, a huge plate of butter prawns, garoupa tiga rasa to start with. Then crab fried rice and asparagus belacan, crabmeat egg fu yong and sizzling Japanese tofu with more seafood.
Pour le couple qui voudrait vivre de nouvelles expériences ensemble, on lui conseille un voyage vietnam cambodge 16 jours.
