Restaurant Lung Seng @ Tanjung Tualang, Perak

It seems like ages, but wait, doesn't 3 months sounds like ages?

Dear prawns, how are you doing? Hope you are doing well, whereever you are (hope you are still not stuck somewhere up my guts)

Those juicy prawns, deep fried, coated either with dark sauce, egg floss or oats (deep fried too, so i doubt it can absorb any cholesterol) are like a memory of the past and the only reminiscence is the bulging tummy that i can't seem to control anymore.

So what do you do?

You feast on the pictures after everyone has dissected those prawns apart with how they taste, how they look, texture, origins and so on and so forth.

Let the pictures commence!

If heavily recommended has to be visualised, imagine the size of a sumo. "Kon Cheen" Har.

Egg floss a plenty, fried prawns, a plenty too!

If you are truly in denial like me, go order the oats version. Trust me, oats are good for you, whether cooked in water, milk or oil.

Just look at the head. The roe. The calories. The heart clogging killer. Like the saying goes, if you cant win them, join them. Eat up! Shells included (remember the fad of eating this chitosan, which essentially i remember was using prawn shells?)

Once the "chitosan" is put into work, you order some soft shell crabs.

Relax the palate abit with steam crabs.

Finish off with some vegetables.

Prawns were like RM65 a kg and i think we had 3kgs if not more. What bliss.

Address and contact details:

10, Jalan Besar
Tanjung Tualang

Tel: 05-3600735

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Awesome stuff if you find yourself journeying up north. Call ahead though, tanjung tualang ain't very big so you will probably get lose within that square for no more than 10 minutes before you find it.

tualang's prawns, heaven! esp the prawn with oat.

Precious Pea said...

YUMMYYYY!!! The Soy Sauce Prawn is my all time fav although I have yet to try the oat version which look equally as GOOD! You should order Soon Hock next time you go...fresh, wild and cheap!

thule a.k.a leo said...

Kon Cheen Har is the way to go man! I could still remember the first time I had it last year... also the deep fried soft shell crab, steamed har, etc etc...
it's so darn expensive to have these dishes in KL... sigh!!!
I plan to go there again next year after my daughter hits 1 year old :) easier to take care of

worldwindows said...

We have 30-40 versions to cook crabs in KL, I am sure this fresh water prawns haven can equal if not excel. Kon cheen would be my favourite.
