Restoran Suang Le River, Bagan Pasir, Kuala Selangor

Thank you very much Precious Pea for the relaxing drive and the delicious meal!

*incredulous whisperings overheard in the background*

No, she did not drive me. She did not treat me. She was not even there or aware. I was thanking her for this post. *Ting goes the light bulbs*

My last trip to Kuala Selangor was when I was about this high (not that I’ve grown much vertically in the last couple of decades).

4 in a car driven by Kusahi Keat under a rare soothing noon sun looking for this:-A Kuala Selangor regular in the car was only familiar with Bagan Penampang.

Bagan Pasir? Where’s that?

Aha, brilliant me quickly handed over the written down tips from the post which read ’15 minutes from Kuala Selangor town’ and the name of the restaurant. Brilliant, no? Okay, I kept Precious Pea’s cell phone number close too.

In an hour’s time, we reached the town and confidently we checked our watches to drive for another 15 minutes. Just before I lost hope, Bagan Pasir signboard appeared. Yay!

It was after 2pm. A few locals who were busy playing mahjong with kids running around did not stop us from walking in. Good sign.

The dining area was quiet. Nobody around. But once we sat down, one of them approached us to take our order. With a confused splatter of mixed-up CantoMandaHokki dialect, we were rewarded with these:-

Kung-po Baby Squids. A yummylicious must have!

Marinated In Salt & Fried Mantis Prawns (one each). I should have had more! By the way, it's pictured before shelled.Steamed Flower Crabs. Shhwwweeet!Steamed Siakap slice. This was a bit of a letdown due to the smaller than expected size and chook-like meat texture.

We sat for quite a long while after our meal. Situated at the mouth of the river (Straits?), it was very breezy.

Surprisingly more patrons came in then. Guess you can drop by this place anytime in the afternoons.

Spied one table was served this. Looks interesting so we ordered by pointing. One finger licking good fish each. Don’t know the name but it tasted somewhat like the small deep fried ‘ikan susu’ or ‘sua-chiam in Hokkien’ available at most Indian or Malay rice shops.Settled this with smiles:-

Hopefully a better location tip:-Cautionary note: Not a conducive dining area for the flies adverse/phobic.

  • Oh, though I tried to time it well, my bladder rebelled. *waving* Yoohoo Precious Pea, do come back for my toilet adventure next, ok? Guarantee to make you gasp.

  • Sadly, due to the lateness (only went hunting after late lunch) we did not get to fill our ice box with fresh seafood. The best hours are from 2pm to 3pm. Nevertheless we did stop for fresh coconut drinks and prawns crackers at Bagan Penampang.

  • To Kusahi Keat, neh-neh-neh-neh-neeeh me first me first!

Hahaha...toilet or food adventure pulak!

team bsg said...

This , together with some other chinaman sea food stalls/restaurants are our ideal eating out destinations
interstate travels and we will have 2 beers (big bottle)each for the first 1/2 hour. The least sweet sour fish and prawns and crabs and squids the better, preferably grilled with nothing. We might have been here before but....Oh it looks familiar...


jason said...

Cheap ler! No wonder you sounded happy.

Tummythoz said...

wmw, life is full of interesting adventures, no?

team bsg, bet u guys would be so much better at ordering their specialties without peeping at other tables & pointing.

jason, *rub tummy & hoping the next seafood meal will be just as good*
