Restoran Lucky, Bagan Pasir, Kuala Selangor

How to celebrate a Monday off? Go for an out of city drive the whole of Sunday, of course. Kuala Selangor we went. Wayyyyyy back in Dec'08. =D

A local lady boss in that fishing village while preparing the chosen fresh seafood bounty to be packed into our ice box for the journey back into the city, recommended this restaurant. She whispered that the previous restaurant we’ve been (she calls it Suang-Le-Le literally meaning Fun-Happy-Happy in Mandarin) prices are steeper for it is more popular with the locals. No, not the food is better but because it has a Karaoke set and dinner functions are usually held there. For outsiders too as it has a more panoramic view as it sits on stilts facing the river mouth. Take a peep here.

This Restoran Lucky she recommended sits by the roadside.
4 of us enjoyed:-

Deepfried ‘Meh-chui-yu’ (Don’t know the name in English but in Cantonese, it’s called as its looks – before served on plate, Slant Mouth Fish)
Kung-po Mantis Prawns (shelled)
Deepfried Squid in Batter (Calamari)

Clams Steamed in Wine
Stir fried Choy-tam Greens
Location: Driving from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Selangor, one will reach the touristy Bagan Penampang first. Don’t turn in but drive on for another 10-15mins until the Bagan Pasir signboard appears on the left. Turn into the fishing village and continue driving for another 10-15mins. Before the road ends, Restoran Suang Le signboard will be spotted. Restoran Lucky sits right after it.

Note: Bagan Pasir roads are being resurfaced and upgraded, so be prepared for a bumpy ride on certain stretches.

We drove further after our heavy lunch until we reached another fishing village, Sekinchan.Hi all. Just came back from another Jakarta/Bandung holiday trip, so I'm still busy clearing my day job in-tray.

Lucky got this old post to tide my blog over! Err actually-hor, plenty from where this came from. Bear with me, k.

This is really good stuff and cheap. The fish looks like what my folks called "tad sar ye" - greyish on top i.e. eyes and mouth side and white on the flip side. Meat is sweet and compact.

sc said...

waiting for your jakarta/ bandung post..lemme see what goodies you bought this time round! :)

J2Kfm, haha. Not villa, just very high tolerance, generous, accommodating friends.

Life is GOOD!

worldwindows, you sure know your fish. I can only recognise pomfret and stingray.

sc, you do know I'm not the fastest nor the 2nd, 5th, 99th fastest blogger around ..
