I spent this year’s Labor’s day holiday at Tanjung Sepat. This impromptu trip was decided on the day itself after coming back from my maiden gym workout. First stop was at Asam Batu Laut Restaurant for late lunch. I’ve been to this eatery back in 2013 and found the seafood to be fresh and delicious. So we came back for more!
Clockwise from left: salted mantis prawn, asam steamed snapper fish, marmite baby octopus and sizzling hot plate oyster. Not in photo is a plate of dragon vegetables.
After our hearty lunch, we stopped at Ganofarm, a mushroom and lingzhi farm. I expected a free visit inside the mushroom farm but what we got was some variety of mushrooms growing outside the factory and a shop selling all sort of processed food including their very own mushroom (fresh). We saw lots of tourist coming out of the shop carrying shopping bags on their left and right hand but we didn’t buy anything. Weird. Haha
Then it’s a short drive away to Lover Bridge. Unfortunately about half of the Lover Bridge was destroyed (by strong wave I guess), so I did not take any photo of the bridge.
We stopped by at Hai Yew Heng pao just to look see. Didn’t buy any pao because the queue was extremely long. I have no patience to wait under the sweltering heat. You can’t see the queue here because it’s at the other side.
Then to Joo Fa Trading to buy their coffee. Their white coffee was sold out. Only remaining were the 2nd grade and 3rd grade coffee. We bought the 2nd grade coffee bag to try at home. The coffee was aromatic and nice.
Although I mentioned ‘Quaint Village’ in the title of this post, there was no village to be seen. I totally forgot to snap the old shops/houses. I find the Tanjung Sepat village to be very cozy and nice. Some of the roads in this village is quite narrow and you park mostly by the roadside. Overall it was a nice short trip. I’ll come back for the pao and more seafood next time. 😉
I refer to this Tanjung Sepat map for this trip.
