My recent trip to Kuantan was tiring. But that doesn't stop us from visiting various places there. There're two places worth mention: Teluk Cempedak and Tanjung Lumpur. Erm... sebenarnyer dua tempat ni je kita pergi, hehehehe...
A mere 10 minutes drive away from Kuantan town. I didn't expect the place to be so well maintained and tourist friendly. Basically it's a white sand beach with soothing sound of waves. There're plenty of food stalls and restaurants, including the cosy looking KFC and McD outlet.
The pathway along the beach was busy with stalls selling souvenirs by the side. I was surprised to see people flocking in to the place at that time as it was around 7.30pm already. Majority of the visitors are not dining there, but strolling along the beach. Hm... naper strolling waktu malam ek?
We were tired and in a hurry, so didn't got time to have 'proper' seafood meal. This is what i'd ordered: Nasi goreng Amerika + air oren segar.
The beach here in Tanjung Lumpur is not as beautiful as the one in Teluk Cempedak. Probably because it's baron (no big trees along the beach) and hot. Without much maintenance, it looks rather 'desserted' with only a few locals fishing there.
But anyway, our purpose is not to do sight-seeing there, we're actually aiming for the food! hehehehe... we were told that the ikan bakar and all the seafood there are fresh and yummilicious. It's 5.45pm when we arrive, and many restaurants were not operating yet. We went to this stall, for 'minum petang' before having dinner at one of our team member's home at 8.30pm.
What did we had? Kerang bakar! I like this dish, as it's well cooked and not watery.
The yummilicious sotong goreng tepung.
Udang bersambal, very fresh!
We saw sata along the way, but we didn't try this. Kita minum petang je, makan ratah-ratah je..tanak makan banyak sangat.
If you're planning to visit Kuantan, be sure to try their seafood!
