While we were on the way to Pesta Buku last Saturday, we stopped by this place in Kepala Batas for a quick lunch. Hubby got to know from a friend about this place with a warning "Sedap tapi mahal sikit lah".
The delicious part is indeed true, but as for the expensive part, I would say it's a reasonable price for that kind of meal. But it definitely won't be our daily santapan or else botak laki haku before he reach 40! Hehe.
Anyway, where did we had lunch? It's at this place called 'Restoran Ikan Bakar Din', in Kepala Batas. Opposite Nasi Kandar Line Clear.
Ok mak ngn anak interframe sat!
Upon crossing over the small bridge we could already feel the heat emanating from all those fires they used to bakar the red and white meat. We were greeted with a sight of huge fishes, shrimps and delicious looking chicken, beef and so on. Kalau ikut nafsu, I would have requested to have one each of the dishes but thank God my rational husband stopped me midway!
The shrimps cost RM6-RM10 per shrimp. But serious besaq!
So we went to look for a place to sit first. The crowd was so huge it felt like attending kenduri at kampung. People were all over the place, and you barely see empty seats anywhere. We had to standby at any table, waiting for the occupants to finish their lunch so we could have ours.The hubby almost canceled lunch there but because the ikan bakar were beckoning to us already, we waited patiently, albeit the grumbling tummies!
Finally after about 15 minutes of waiting, we got to walloped our lunch. I had to snap pics quickly as the hubster couldn't wait to attack the food already! We chose a set of the simplest dishes, but it was mouth-watering indeed. The air asam is a MUST! Simply divine. So if any of you happen to visit this place, please don't forget to add the air asam to your dish. And of course don't forget the ulam-ulaman. They've got all sorts of varieties of these daun-daun to choose from!
Siakap bakar - lima bintang!
Air asam - lima belas bintaaaang!!!!
Total amount we paid for the above lunch + milo ais, nescafe ais and teh ais was RM42.00. We had a hard time finishing them off, as the portion was quite huge, even for a kaki makan like the husband. We took off from the restaurant feeling full and satisfied.
If I could use two sentences to describe the food here, it would be :
Gendang gendut tali kecapi,
Kenyang perut senang hati!
