One day in Tanjung Sepat

Tuesday, November 07, 2006


Tanjung Sepat, a small fish village located at southwest part of Selangor. Tanjung Sepat becoming a tourist attraction after commercialize seafood restaurants open in this area. Nowadays, people came here for fresh seafood and various orchards farms, including Dragon Fruits Longan, mushroom and Ganoderma (Chinese Ling Zhi) farm.


My sister is having her maternity leave and resting at her parent in law place in Tanjung Sepat. Family and I pay her a visit during the last weekend. Unlike other visitor to Tanjung Sepat, we didn't visit to those places, we just have simple meal instead.

Having our lunch at Restoran Hong Seng Bay Seafood. It's was around 1:30pm, there are 4 buses stop in front.

This is not the most famous restaurant in this area yet it's full house during the lunch time. Food wise, it taste reasonable good. I truly believe their pricing is reasonable as well (brother in-law pay for it :D). These are what we had.

Bamboo clam in "Kam Heong" style


Fried Oyster

I like this fried oyster. You see a lot of tiny yet juicy oyster fried with egg and batter base. Unlike the usual fried oyster I had in seafood restaurant in Port Klang. Normal seafood restaurant pan fried the oyster with flour and eggs, where this one doesn't has flour at all.

Deep fried seafood beancurd, another good item

Stir-fried Kai-lan

White shell clams, I don't see this often

Pomfret in Teo Chew style


After the lunch, go to the famous Hai Yew Hin to buy the Hainanese style steamed Chinese buns.

Hai Yew Hin

You can see the cloud in the photos, and everyone is carrying a bag of pau in hand. During the weekday, they sell over thousand buns in a day, weekend is out of imagination, tour buses is sending tourists for huge purchase. Something must be special right?

Pork meat buns (RM1.80 each)

The buns is handmade, I reckon the the dough is not make from the usual all-purpose flour, look at the pau color, is natural yellowish (normal pau has whitening). The bun is soft yet does not stick on teeth.

The bun's filling is make from lean meat mostly, yet it is not dry. According to Tanjung Sepat resident, Hai Yew Hin's pau taste better last time.

Fat boy visit

According to a uncle who sell fish ball in Hai Yew Hin, the buns business boost another 80% after the fat boy visit. This 3 "Hong Kong Eat King" posters is a good advertisement.
