KUALA SELANGOR, a Northwestern coastal town in Selangor is a place worth visiting.
There is a nature park here which is well-known for its bird population and across the Selangor river, there’s the Pasir Penambang, a village that made its name through the fishery industry and its seafood restaurants.
Okay, moving on, I decided to take a drive to Sekinchan, which is the second town after Kuala Selangor to photograph its bird population.
Michelle, my wife, who became my ‘spotter’, came along as we drove from our home in Subang Jaya via the LATAR Highway which exits at Asam Jawa just 15-minutes away from Kuala Selangor.
It took us an hour to reach this small coastal town and the first thing we did was to search for a place to makan.
We knew of three food outlets along the river near Pasir Penambang and settled for Hai Ung restaurant (N 03 21 120, E 101 14 929).
Its situated at the end of the Pasir Penambang village and has a nice view of the Selangor river with Bukit Malawati in the background.
Since we did not want to stuff ourselves silly during the late lunch affair, I ordered a plate of fried Tanghoon (Mung bean noodles) and the house speciality: Shark fillet in spicy sauce.
The Tanghoon was a surprise as it tasted really good and at RM6 per plate, I cannot complain on the pricing.
Speaking of shark fillet, most West coast fishing villages along the Peninsula would offer this delight.
Taste-wise, I’d say its just average and the saving grace in this case, is the awesome sauce that goes with it.
For a try, RM13 per serving, I would say that the dish was decent.
Hai Ung restaurant opens for lunch and dinner and is closed on certain festive days on the Chinese Lunar calendar.
To get there, you can either drive along the coastal trunk road from Klang or utilise the LATAR highway.
