Tg Tualang - Fresh Prawns

Tg. Tualang seafood, especially the fresh water prawns, a.k.a 大头虾 is not strange to Perakians. Tg Tualang is a small town near Batu Gajah, Perak. There are a few seafood restaurants in Tg Tualang. There is one which Ah Xian has visited before.

However, personally, I preferred the one next to it, which is 聯芳, the corner restaurant. 聯芳 has been visited by Hong Kong famous chef and food critic, 食神滔滔. So, it's really up to individual to choose which restaurant you prefer, after all it's really very subjective when it comes to food tasting.

The steam water prawns


Normally, eater will opt for the pan fry version of prawns, equally tasty


This restaurant also is famous of their fried rice


There was no crabs on the day we visited the place, so we opted for soft shell crab


We also ordered the Fried "Gam Foong" Fish


Must have balance meal, ya, here come the Kang Kung Belacan


The total bill came to RM186/=.
Location: Jalan Pasar, Tanjung Tualang Town.

Wow, finally Tg Tualang! The prawns there are so famous. Thanks for the post.

If you have time do a post on the famous restaurant in Lawan Kuda, Gopeng. Waiting for someone from Ipoh to do it.

Food Paradise, nope it is not difficult to locate. Coming from Batu Gajah town, simply follow the road sign of Tg Tualang. Once you see the market, you will notice this restaurant. Or if you are coming from Penang, exit from Gopeng toll, then follow the old trunk road and check the sign board of Tg Tualang. Very easy!

Duckie, yea, they are famous of the fresh prawns at Tg Tualang.

Worldwindows, yeah, the one near Lawan Kuda, I hope I will check that out and share it soon! Thanks for reminding.

eh, you mind translating the shop's name?

cant read Chi lah ... =P

passed by Tualang today, but no seafoodl lunch, cz work comes first. =(

SimpleGirl said...

J2kfm, I think the translation should be Lian Fong, is a corner shop, near the market. The shop beside Lian Fong there is Ah Xian banner beside it, very easy to spot it.
