  Seafood seafood seafood...
by A2002

There are many cheap and good seafood restaurants which are built with wood above mangrove swamps and along the coast. These places are usually only accessible by car. Perhaps a unfamiliar person might not find it cos we usually need to pass through some unlit (at night), rural parts to reach the restaurants.

This picture is taken in one of the restaurant along the coast near a neighbourhood called Mega Ria. I have been dining there for a few years already. Prices are increasing, but still reasonable (May 2004). It started with no sign-boards at all, and only by word of mouth. The very last time when I go there, I saw some sign boards directing people to this rural part of the place. However, the signs are not very big though... And the number of waiters and waitresses increased too! Looks like this place getting very popular... Gotta go and try it one of these days to see if the food still as superb.

Mega Ria is quite far from the causeway. You can reach there by taking the Pasir Gudang Highway and go all the way striaght and exit when you see a sign to Mega Ria. I do not know the exact km, but I know it is far. Sometimes I get a bit lazy to go there unless for special occasions.
