the gong gong or the local Sea Snail is a local delicacy in the Batam and Bintan and other areas of the Riau Archipelago. You need a wooden toothpick to be able to scoop out these fleshy goodness and they taste so sweet even without the sauce. Others say that the Gong Gong is Best eaten steamed to succulent perfection, the meat is fished out from the shell using a toothpick and dipped in ?sambal? (locally-made chilli sauce) first before eating but agian i prefer to eat it as it is due to the sweet and fleshy taste. It is available at the sea food restaurants around the Batam Area and is usually included in the Sea Food Lunch package of the Batam Day Tours.
