Whenever we visit the North Port area, we will go to Restaurant Bagan Hailam in the Bagan Village for their fresh salt baked Crabs and Hailam mee.

Yesterday, we found that the restaurant had ceased business.

We, then went to Restoran Port Village located at Tanjung Harapan,
a few 100 meters away.
This family owned restaurant served halal food.
The place was huge and could accommodate up to 70 tables with a sectioned area for air conditioned dining.

The restaurant's structure are built of planks and mangrove wood with concrete pillars and a solid, creaky 60 feet long plank gangway entrance.

As it was high tide, we could see and hear the sounds of rolling sea waves hitting the side embankment and mangrove trees at the side of the restaurant.

We selected a table with a sea view sights of ships, tugboats, motorboats and the occasional submarine-like Pulau Ketam ferry plying the sea lane.

Our orders were quickly taken by a girlish man supervisor.

Parking is ample and free.

Signboard at the front of the restaurant.

Hailam mee (thick yellow noodle) -with slices of Chicken meat, Fish cake, Shrimp, crunchy Beansprout and garnished with fine slivers of refreshing Cucumber-the noodle was smooth and tangy in flavor after squeezes of Lime juice were added to it-passable-Rm12/.

Deep fried Mantis Prawn meat tossed with slanted sliced Ladyfinger (Okra), Onions and Red Chillies-overfried to the point of dryness-too small in sized and tasted awful-Rm15/.

Or Chien-Oyster Omelette was nicely browned and crispy but the fresh Oysters were way too tiny and weeny-Rm12/

Stir fried sweet Potato leaves-refreshing and leafy-Rm8/.

The Star of the lunch- freshly delivered Roe Crabs-have it steamed-full of enriching red Roe-fine textured, meaty and sweet-Rm69/.

After the meal, went to the Esplanade at Tanjung Harapan for a breather-a photo of a replica boat on display.

Total bill:Rm140/
Location:LMS A 12800, Tanjung Harapan,
Pelabuhan Klang, Selangor.

roe crabs are good stuff. sinful, but nothing beats licking those creamy, bitter substance off the shells.

foodbin said...

SGirl-it was freshly delivered when we arrived there.
Duckie-the chef might be on "off" day mood!
J2Kfm-it was fulfilling too.
