Well what do people look for when you are at a beach destination. Its fresh seafoods. That is the reason why most local authorities at beach destinations in Malaysia build seafood food stalls. These eateries and food courts are “Medan Ikan Bakar“.
One choice for a seafood meal in Port Dickson is the Medan Ikan Bakar Majlis Perbandaran Port Dickson. When I am in Port Dickson, I will stop by here. Presently there are three shops here but my favourite is on the right as you walk in. Its owned by the “Persatuan Nelayan Port Dickson“. I have found it is the better choice in for price and taste. I avoid the one on the water. The “Restaurant Terapung“. Since friends say the seafoods there is expensive. There is also a lot of bad reviews on internet about the “Restaurant Terapung” too. So I will not take a chance.
As with most seafood stalls fresh seafood is displayed on ice. So you could choose what to eat. There were assorted fishes, mussels, beansprouts, bamboo clams, squid, prawns and more.
We had a large fish, of which they cooked in two different flavours. The top half was cooked with a light spicy sauce “tiga rasa“. And the bottom half was deep fried, for my kids.We also ordered a plate of deepfried squids anf kangkong belacan. Food was nicely done, not oily or with too much spices. The pricing was reasonable. We had those items with 4 plates of steamed rice and some beverages. The bill came to below RM90. Food taste was OK not WOW but just ok.
We had a sizable fish, of which they cooked in two different flavours. The top half was prepared with a light hot and spicy sauce “tiga rasa”. As well as the bottom half was deep-fried, for my kids. We also ordered a dish of deepfried squids and kangkong belacan. Food was properly done, not oily or with too much spices. The pricing was reasonable. We had those items with 4 plates of steamed rice and some beverages. The check came to below RM90. Parking is free but on weekends can get really full. Clean toilets are also available.
Food taste is alright. Not WOW but just OK. Service alright but can be a tad slow when they are busy. Seafood reasonably fresh. Price OK. The view of the sea was blocked by the “Restaurant Terapung”. So you will feel that you are eating at a normal food restaurant.
