Fresh Fish and Fishy Tales

With a long weekend ahead of me (it was the weekend of Hari Raya Haji), I wanted to do something different with the family, but where can you go to for a short day trip, without tiring the kids out or wasting too much petrol?

Well, the answer and inspiration came to me after reading about the delicious BBQ seafood dinner that a KL_based foodie had had after her visit to the Pasir Penambang, Kuala Selangor area.

I made a few phone calls to my friend, to verify the general location, and then the next day, set off for a drive to Kuala Selangor. This is the story of my little fishy adventure!

Footnote:The location of Pasir Penambang as mentioned by boo_licious in her masak-masak blog is a different place from Tanjung Karang. I have a write up on Pasir Penambang on my Negeri Selangor pages. Thanks to boo_licious and eating asia for their helpful tips and wonderfully delicious pics.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Just an hour and a half 's drive from KL or PJ (unless there is a traffic jam!)
  • Cons:Slight traffic jam around Sg Buloh, windy roads
  • In a nutshell:A fishing village, with lots of good, fresh fish!

    W_O, what a fun day and really well-written tips too. I remember catching pomfrets myself at the Marang Resort and Safaris. BTW, the dragon fruit plant looks like some kind of euphorbia.
