Restoran Makanan Laut (Hawa Dingin) Sun Swee Kiong is a grand and new double storey restaurant with it's own parking lots in Tanjung Tualang, a sleepy hollow in Perak.
The exterior of the restaurant is resplendently decorated with red Chinese lanterns, potted green plants and some aquariums filled with live fishes and river prawns in one corner.

The interior looks pleasant, clean, bright and spacious with a huge round plastered ceiling and is fully air conditioned.

My niece HLingand her husband CCChoong was our host and they did the ordering which included Tanjung Tualang's famous river prawns and river fishes if not it will be like what CUMI & amp:CIKI said-eating"Nasi Lemak without Lemak"

The main entrance is at the right hand side of the restaurant.

The spacious interior.

Wild river Prawns was sold out the previous night-have to settle for steamed cultured Prawns-garnished with sliced Ginger and Coriander leaves-Prawns was small in size but tender and succulent-Rm45/.

House made White Beancurd bathed in sweet Soy sauce and complemented with a topping of chopped Spring Onion and deep fried Shallots-lusciously smooth and melt in the mouth-Rm8/.

Cultured Prawns tossed in Soy sauce-was firm, juicy and fragrant - a fabulous choice -preferred it done this style-Rm45/.

Snakehead Fish (Chim Choi Pan)-a wild and rare Snakehead fish for fish connoisseur-was deep fried "SMOOTH" (deep fried in a hot wok of cooking oil under a low flame until cooked)-the skin was smooth and the meat was sweet and very fine in texture-Rm57/.

Chee Kiok Sheen (Vinegar pig trotter)-was ready cooked-the meat detach easily from the bone and was full of the black Chinese vinegar flavor and sweetness from the Palm sugar and Black Dates-with lots of smashed old Ginger-average-Rm16/.

Stir fried Petai (Twisted cluster beans) in Sambal Belacan (Shrimp paste) with chopped Red Chillies, Onions and Cuttlefish cutlet-the Petai was crunchy and pungent-Rm10/.

Stirfried Kangkong (Water Spinach) in Sambal Belacan (Shrimp paste) with fresh prawns-leafy and salty with an explosive aroma-RM8/.

Lychee in Ice to end a delicious dinner-thick flesh and sweet-a good thirst quencher-FOC.

This is a highly regarded adventurous place ( forming a compulsory itinerary of a greater Perak Makan Odyssey ) and serves generally authentic & tasty dishes ! Tho prices have slowly slipped upwards and jettissoned our usual happy gluttony escapades !

Tanjung Tualang, haven't heard of this place before... But the restaurant looks good, you had quite a lot of prawn dishes! Craving for them now, they look really fresh and delicious.

Junglefrog said...

It certainly looks delicious although I am not so sure about that snakeskin fish... Looks a bit scary to me!!

Lori Lynn said...

Lychee in Ice? Now I never heard of that but I am going to steal it this summer when I see fresh lychee.

BSGluttons-a bit pricey with roadside scenery of fish ponds, water buffaloes and the mighty yellow Sg Tualang river.
SBean-in Perak via Malim Nawar after Kampar town.
Junglefrog-it is a Channa Striata fish- never judge a book by it's cover.
LoriLynn-it is canned Lychee with will be tastier if you use Fresh Lychee with some sugar syrup.
Selba-the wild river prawns are much tastier.
Nkotb-take a drive down there to taste it.
