Muara Ikan Bakar @ Tanjung Harapan

Dr. John will be leaving to Cambridge this Friday. And to thank our hospitality and to value our friendship, he decided to give us a treat. We had our dinner at Tanjung Harapan last night, on Abang John's treat of course. It's the Muara Ikan Bakar Restaurant. More pic of this restaurant can be found in this blog.

This restaurant is situated by the seaside. Quite windy and the environment was good. You got to choose your choices of seafood before sending them to the kitchen.

This was my favourite. The deep sea crabs.

Kimie, Kak Lin, my wife and I were having a great time selecting the seafood. We put them into a plastic tray, and the tauke would separate them according to species and weigh them. We chose deep sea crabs, fresh prawns, squids, medium size stingray and siakap. Oh, and an ikan kembung for Ja-cha-cha as she don't take 'big' fish.



The cooking was prompt. The food were served within 10 minutes. We started off with a toast by John, for our friendship.

Then a group photo. From left to right: Miss Wawa (Puan A's princess), my wife, Ja-cha-cha, Puan A, Cikgu Mie (Puan A's hubby), Kak Lin, Abang John, Kimie, and yours truely.

It's John's first time having deep sea crab. He excelled with Kak Lin's 'strict instructions'.

Miss Wawa was just soooo adorable. She's the star of the night.

The food was just ok. Reverview Restaurant at Kuala Selangor beat this restaurant hands down. Hence, no photo shown. Well, the dinner was memorable. We enjoyed the good chat and our friendship was definitely fostered. John and Kak Lin will be back in Malaysia in November.
