I have always wanted to make a trip to Umbai and try the ikan bakar and seafood but each time this plan was put aside or postponed simply because there is no more space in our tummies after a heavy food trail. So, this time, I make sure this trip is materialize despite feeling full after an early dinner.
After alighted from our car, we walked around and noticed there were few stalls selling dried food stuff and lots of seafood restaurants with no sight of customers at all. As we walked further inside, we saw a crowd in Ikan Bakar Parameswara which is nearby the river. Our instinct immediately tell us, good food is here BUT... read on to know more.
|eye catching menu & number stands|
|assorted fresh (not so fresh) seafood and greens....|
expensive price tag
|plates of fresh cockles|
|sauces for dipping |
both the sambal chillies + dark soya sauce.. good combo of sweet,sour + spicy
Fish Otak-Otak (0.70 cents each)
|While waiting for our order to arrive, this basket of hot grilled fish otak-otak was placed on our table. My mom lamented it tasted sweet, bland and without any fish meat. We couldn't agree more!|
|BBQ Cockles (RM6) |
well cooked and I like it but others prefer half cook with blood
|Asam Pedas Cencaru (RM4.80)|
Unlike Penang Asam Pedas , you can't find bunga kantan and other fresh herbs in this staple. Surprisingly, the gravy is fragrant and thick and helps me to clean up my packet of nasi lemak.
