It was a long drive ~.~" I expected it to be a shorter trip but it took us like almost 2 hours to reach there. We used the old way that exits from Subang - the highway - Ijok - Kuala Selangor - Sekinchan. If you know how to access the Latar Highway, please use it! Much faster, lesser small winding roads.
Thankfully it was worth the drive. We had a good meal, and discovered the beach! :)
And so my friend who has a friend who lives in Sekinchan suggested this one and so we tried.
Steamed lala (RM14)
Fried crab (dry-style) The crabs were a bit small. They didn't have methods like salted yolk style or buttermilk style. The taste was okay la. RM20
We ordered mantis prawn as well but we checked with one guy if the order was taken, he said noso we canceled it. But when the bill came we did order the mantis prawn =.=" I told the female staff who took our order, she apologized saying that she wasn't aware that it didn't come.
We ordered a plate of vegetables too, stir fried yau mak (RM7)
8 of us were guessing the bill would come up to RM250, but when the bill came it was RM132.50. All were like 'huh?' We were surprised it was so cheap. Tea and rice were RM7.50. It would be perfect if the shark dish was good because I was told that people go there for the shark dishes. (The sharks are farmed for their meat.) But anyway, my friends were very satisfied with the 3 plates of deep fried calamari :D
Was looking at some of the articles printed out by my mum about Sekinchan and saw a map that leads to the beach. We asked a local boy along the way and he said turn into the junction next to a sotong/seafood factory. There's a sign that says Jalan Redang or Pantai Redang I can't remember. Turn at the junction and just go all the way straight and you will see the beach!
Good way of recycling *thumbs up*
On the way back to KL. My initial purpose coming to Sekinchan is to snap a polaroid picture of my rainbow umbrella at the paddy field, but wrong timing, it's been harvested, no green or gold paddy field. Next time.
Along the way we stopped at one of the fruit stalls, bought some fruits to eat and mango juice. Oh my, their mango juice is awesome. Really fresh mango juice because you can taste the pulp. They also sell yams, corns etc. But my friend say it's not that cheap so we did not buy any.
Saw a stall selling kelapa bakar (burnt coconut) so we stop by to try. They put the coconut in a big tong and burn it to charcoal black on the outside and then cut it.
We drank the other type of coconut, the small one. I prefer normal cold coconut. This taste like double boiled coconut soup (yes it's hot one).
And then we stopped for cendol and laksa. There were lots of cars parked along the way dining here so we tried.
A very typical Malay laksa. Nice but not hot enough.
The neighbour of Cendol Borhan sells some chips, keropoks and kuihs at RM2 per packet or RM5 for 3 packets etc.
Overall, a nice day trip. One of my wish list completed. Thank you all.
