Famous Grilled Fish at Petaling Street

Petaling Street is famous for a few things but my favourite part of Petaling Street has always been the food. Today wAntAn productions brings you to Petaling Street to enjoy a very famous Grilled Fish stall. I don't know what this place is called but it is located right by the Hong Leong Bank in Petaling Street nearby the famous Air Mata Kucing stall (which I will talk about later).

Before you try it out I should give you a word of warning. This place is not for those who cannot eat spicy things as their grilled fish is spicy, spicy and spicy! So much so that it's overkill. Five of us went to eat dinner at this place and when we placed the order the lady boss asked us if we could take spicy food. A previous experience here made me immediately react and tell her to make it mild but even then I sweated my way through dinner!

Grilled lala.

Grilled sotong (squids to you foreigners).

Grilled Ikan Pari (Stringray).

It was RM44.00 including rice. The portions were for 4 persons but the 5 of us had a comfortably filling meal. The drink stall here does great business as well because the grilled fish is so spicy you're bound to drink more than one cup.

All the grilled fish (actually a better word would be seafood) is cooked the same way. Choose a meat and they place it into a tin foil with some curry and some vegetables such as long beans and ladies fingers (a.k.a. okra). Their dishes are pretty decent but their spicyness is way too strong... this coming from someone who loves to eat chillis! However they still do roaring business which means most people don't seem to mind.

Note: You can't eat here in peace. Every few minutes you will be disturbed by either a ma-piao (lottery ticket) vendor or some beggar. By the way in case you're wondering those Buddhist monks are fake. Monks are only allowed to beg for food... never for money.

I LOVE THIS PLACE!! this seems like the only place that can make ikan bakar so spicy. I'll be sweating and my lips bengkak to the maxs but nothing can stop me from eating the yummy ikan bakar.:P

I find it very cheap. For about RM10 per person, you'll be stuffed full!

a golden opinion from Blogger earl-ku

FYI - besides the less spicy, extra spicy or gila spicy version, you can actually ask for the non-spicy version

besides the lala, kerang, stingray or squid, you can also get clams, kampung fish or the tofu fish variety, suprising you can get chicken there too, but u only get wings la ...

after sometime - i get sick with the burnt taste of the banana leaves ...
