Fishy Treat at Umbai – ‘Perkampungan Ikan Bakar Terapung’

‘Perkampungan Ikan Bakar Terapung’ Is a restaurant complex built far at the sea shore just above the water level. So it will look like a floating building when tide happen.

Malay grilled fish is a bit difference from western style grilled fish. You can feel the difference when you ate a fish at Manhattan Fish Restaurant an then come here to eat. Usually western style grilled fish taste originally like a fish with no added ingredient and look neat from outside. But for malay, they tend to put spices on the fish and few pinched of salt together with turmeric powder to give the fish a taste.

Usually the grilled fish are enjoyed with nasi lemak (wrapped rice) and the sauces is made from tamarind juice mix with soy sauce and added fresh Malaysian chillies.

All fresh, just choose the size and amount you want and they will put it on the weighing scale for you.
