The Not So Secret Curry Prawns @ Nibong Tebal

Nibong Tebal sounds and probably is a nobody's town where the residents live their lives peacefully and satisfyingly. Although there have a secret that has been rather well kept and we are not talking about Cheang Kee.

It is the freshwater prawns.

With the amount of freshwater prawns lurking around the rivers, i would be guarding the secret of Nibong Tebal very possesively too.

So the deal was this.

We were to get there through a secret GPS co-ordinate, eat the prawns like no tomorrow but we swear upon our DSLRs and cholesterol levels that we shall not reveal the exact location.

All i can say is EUREKA!

Sip at some freshly bottled sugar cane.

While the secret coding conversation was going on i.e.

Who are you?

Mrs So and So son. She called for some uber fresh prawns to be kept for us.

Really? Hmmm (At this point, i am not sure if there was any photostating of IC)

Ok, you sure right?

Yeah, serve me the damn prawns, would ya?

There it was, a huge plate of effing prawns. Coated in a chinese thick style curry. Look carefully and the roe oozes out from the head. The high you get is probably as good as it can get. If people are already heading to chocolates to substitute orgasms, you just might want to try curry prawns.

If you are lucky, there get fresh batches from the local Malays which went into our stomachs too. The meaning of fresh goes to a whole new level.

Dip in steamed bread. Soft but with character as it is chewy and doesn't get soggy from all the curry.

Combine it together, and you got a prawn sandwich.

The fish was beautifully steamed too with preserved vegetables, you want proof?

Here you go.

Some classic cabbage fried with true "wok hei".

Still not sure whether we enjoyed it?

Just look at the DJs in da house!

Location: Secret, however if you are smart enough to Google, you can try searching for curry prawns, nibong tebal. You just might get lucky.

For RM60, you get a cholesterol laden prawn meal, this deserve the ultimate 5 stars.
