Ocen Seafood Restaurant, Tanjung Sepat

As promised yesterday here's the food blog on seafood at Sepang! We went to a place called Tanjung Sepat which had this jetty by the sea and a few restaurants in the area. I think the Jetty was called Lover's Bridge or something like that (pics coming up tomorrow). The one recommended by our Sepang resident was Ocen Seafood Restaurant which a restaurant built on stilts and is located nearest to the Jetty. In fact the restaurant has a pretty good view of the jetty. It's not exactly a romantic view though :)

Ocen Seafood Restaurant is a typical Chinese style seafood restaurant. I believe there are similar restaurants in Klang (which I've been to when I was much younger). On to the food.

Bak Ham (White Clams), RM16.00.

This variation of lala has a distinct white shell. It's supposed to be a specialty of this region. Tastes like most lala does. They used a lot of Chinese cooking wine for this dish which gave it a very strong taste.

Kam Heong Crabs, RM50.00.

Crabs fried with lots of onions and dried chillies. Pretty standard fare actually.

Ho Chien (Oysters and Egg Omelette), RM18.00.

The standout dish of the night. I have not tried Ho Chien made this way before. Cooked in a sizzling hot plate with lots of oysters this dish was quite impressive. A definite recommendation.

Fried Sotong, RM16.00.

You standard battered fried Sotong. Well done. Sufficiently crispy and tasty.

Claypot Tauhu, Rm13.00.

This one is actually more of a soup than the normal type of Claypot Tauhu. The way it's prepared is reminicent of Sharks Fin Soup. Very nice.

Lobster steamed with eggs, RM54.00.

Wow... the lobsters here are so cheap! Too bad the only way they cook their lobsters are by steaming it. I would have preferred it baked with cheese and garlic. I didn't quite enjoy the way the lobster was cooked but thumbs up for the freshness. In fact everything we ate that night was fresh.

Except for the lobster everything else isn't really that cheap. The taste isn't outstanding either. However it's fun to take a drive to see the sights and get away from the hustle and bustle of KL city once in a while.

The food looks so yummy! Nowadays dunno why the lalas are all small ones in the restaurants. These variety are the big venus clams or sepah ones. First place I see that has lobsters besides Kemaman.

boo_licious: Yeah... I wonder why everyone's serving smaller lalas nowadays too.

ky: tak lah jauh sangat... kereta ko hebat hebat... pecut sikit sekejap dah sampai

earl-ku: I never thought "taufu-kang" as being that rare... I've had it a few times around the Jalan Ipoh/Kepong area. Many restaurants there serve it.

jackson: Yup... it was very very nice. Very different from KL style.

meiyen: quoting from my colleague in another posting

"Follow the way to KLIA, right after the toll, take the 1st turning to right, which will lead u to INTI College. Go "straight" at 1st round-about, turn left at the 1st traffic light, right at the 2nd and 3rd traffic light then all the way straight again, then there will be signboard to guide u along the way :-D"

it's about one and a half hours away more or less... i'm not too sure because we detoured along the way.

jon, i think [aSa] needs to school you on seafood. ask shum, sani, thiru and mua. one word comes to mind, LUKUT. It takes the same time to get to Tg. Sepat. But the prices has always amazed anyone i've took there.

lukut is the town before PD if you are wondering. imagine 5 dudes whomping down 7 dishes and it cost less than RM100. Menu consisted of Sweet Sour Kerapu (Bigass), Kam Hiong Crabs, Kangkung Belacan, Sam-si Wok (squid, fish and prawns in a sour-spicy curry-like sauce), Titpan O-zhien (hotplate), sweet sour chicken. knowing shum and the guys, we had extra helping of rice as well...all for RM80++

hell yeah!

Anyone knows where is the "dragon fruit farm" and Ling Zhi Farm in Tanjung Sepat?
The location mention about Lukut PD, what about variety? In TS there are more variety of seafood. Is that so in Lukut? Which of the "bangalow restaurant" we should try and the best??
