Kuala Sepetang (Port Weld)

Kuala Sepetang or previously known as Port Weld is a coastal town located in Perak. Port Weld was honoured to have the first railway line in the Peninsular running from Taiping, but the line is now dismantled. The town was named after Sir Frederick Weld, the former Governor, later changed to Kuala Sepetang. He was responsible in the construction of the Taiping - Port Weld railway. Today, Port Weld is a thriving fishing village and has many Malay and Chinese seafood restaurants.

Prawn Noodle - Port Weld's Specialty

Port Weld is a fishing village, and seafood especially the prawns are so fresh and cheap. There are many prawn noodle outlets in Kuala Sepetang. I am not sure which one of them are said to be the best, but I found that this particular restaurant which is located nearest to the town to be quite alright.

Inside Mak Jah's Restaurant

With a competitively priced menu and great food, Mak Jah's restaurant enjoys a healthy clientèle during lunch hours. I went for the famous prawn noodle and it was excellent.
