Stopped by at this restaurant & village-style accommodation to have a lunch. The restaurant is built partly on the beach, so a beautiful seaview is guaranteed. Unfortunately all rooms in the chalet which is just 50m away from the restaurant, is fully booked by a company until end of the year, so only food is available at the moment! Sea view is free though :D

|Sambal (chili paste) Prawn (RM12)|
Despite a little bit spicy. this plate of prawn is definitely fresh and delicious, best to eat together with rice!
|Kangkung Belacan (RM8)|
This is the reason why I don't want to post this blog last week, kangkung (water spinach) was a sensitive issue during the second week of January 2014 in Malaysia!
