Our mini shopping excursion in the proverbial bag, we drove south from Mitsui Outlet Park in Sepang to a beach town an hour or so away called Tanjung Sepat. We meant to come here a few weeks ago when we visited Morib beach but the very large crowds that descended during the Eid Fitr break deterred us.
Tanjung Sepat is derived from the word Tanjung, meaning cape in English, and Sepat, a type of fish. It used to be a fishing village but due to pollution in Straits of Malacca, this activity is becoming less intensive, but still part of the daily scene here.
We parked at a Buddhist Temple loosely translated as the Five Thunder Immortals Master Gong Ancient Temple (?) and briefly explored the surroundings. Our real purpose for being here was to enjoy seafood, and this place had plenty of 'em.
We settled on Baywatch Restaurant with its excellent view of the beach and got ourselves seated at an almost seaside table. The server who also happens to own the restaurant was a very friendly and patient lady, and after taking into account her recommendations settled on the:
- Stir Fried Sweet Potato Leaves for RM12.00
- Deep Fried Salted Egg Baby Squid for RM20.00
- Kam Heong Fried Flower Crab (1 kg) for RM70.00
- Lotus Leaf Deep Fried Groupa Fish for RM56.00
- 2 servings of white rice for RM3.00
- Free flowing Chinese Tea for RM4.00
Did we enjoy the succulent seafood feast? You bet your bottom dollar! I took pleasure in devouring the Groupa fish cooked in a home-made paste that I suspected had belacan (shrimp paste or prawn sauce) and did not pay the crabs any attention except for a few bites. Cat on the other hand was perfectly happy to have the crabs all to herself. This was the first time we had a proper seafood meal since the pandemic, and it was well worth the wait!
And what was the damage? We were incredibly happy that the entire meal was devoid of service charge, so it came up to RM165.00 (approximately USD38/EUR36). While this would normally be considered an astronomically expensive meal, given the fact that we stayed home almost the entire Eid Fitr period it was justified.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
We do what we can to support local businesses, and it's always good to know that everyone here observes all related SOPs, it helps make us feel safer and reassured.
