We had seven course dishes dinner at Pusing Public Seafood Restaurant Sdn Bdh. The first dish, of course was the Low San.
All believed that the higher you toss the better you are, Low Hee

Smashed ginger steamed  kampong chicken
Soy source fried prawns
Sweet sour siakap fish
Braised pork
Steamed tau fo stuffed with fish paste.

All the dishes were too much for a table of ten of us, we have to ask to take away. My dog was lucky to have the big pork bone for supper.

Tanjong Tualang

On the sixth day of Chinese New Year, both of my sisters from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore wanted to visit their daughters in Teluk Intan, Alfred and me decided to send them because it was too messy for them to go by bus with luggage and begs of goodies. Dued to the heavy traffics from Ipoh to Kampar we diverted our drive through Batu Gajah and at the same time we can stop by Tanjong Tualang for fresh water prawns, moreover my younger sister never tasted the prawns in that little town.

We reached our destination at about one p.m, Restoran Makanan Laut Thong Lok, it was just a small restaurant who can lay only seven tables. We were lucky to be seated before another big crowd came in. We like to come to this restaurant because the boss , Francis and wife were very friendly and the prices of the foods were very reasonable compared to other neighbouring restaurants.

We ordered one kati of middle-sized fresh water prawns for steaming, and  another kati for soy source frying. Half of the Marble Goby and fried La-La.

Steamed Marble Goby

Kam Heong Fried La-La
Steamed prawns has the fragrant and freshness of the prawn, sweet and crunchy, while the soy source fried prawns has different taste, crunchy too .
The steamed Marble goby was really good, the size was just suitable for serving thus the flesh was very sweet and tasty.
The Kam Heong fried la-la was very good as well.

Francis was really a good cook.
