Tien Yin Seafood Restaurant @ Bagan Sungai Burung, Selangor

Sometime last week, I had shared an entry from a fishing town and that was from the coast of Pantai Batu Laut. Today, I shall be sharing another fantastic place that is not too far from Kuala Lumpur and this place is located in Bagan Sungai Burung, Sabak Bernam. 

Paddy Fields Along The Way

The Restaurant In Bagan Sungai Burung, Selangor

Crowded Even During Non Peak Hours

People Just Keep Pouring In

Clean Space
Bagan Sungai Burung is just off Sungai Besar but it comes under the Sabak Bernam district. Being a fishing town, this place promises cheap and fresh seafood that is deliciously prepared. There's many ways to get here but for us, it was best to come from Tanjung Malim using the Sungai Besar road that starts from Behrang town. The journey was just under 80 minutes but the roads were not too good as you're mostly driving through villages and paddy fields. Nevertheless, it is still worth the drive. We arrived around 2.30 pm and even at that hour, this place was three quarter full. There's no menu card whatsoever here but the dishes shown below are some of their signature dishes and you would see them at almost every table. The staffs are very friendly and they surely seem so used to handling crowd. One thing I liked about the lady boss here is that she does adjust the dishes based on the number of pax and she tells you when she thinks that you're ordering a little too much. That is an honest gesture that is not found in many restaurants these days. 

Salted Egg Squid @ RM 19.08
Even when placing the orders, the lady boss had informed us that only the large squid was available and we decided to proceed with the orders. I must agree that the squid was very fresh and for this lot, we were only charged RM 24.80 which is very cheap. The preparation was good too. I would rate this at 8/10. 

Kam Heong Mantis Prawns @ RM 16.96
Another wonderful dish that is not to be missed here. The Mantis Prawns were again fresh and they were cooked with lots of onions and dried shrimps. Again a wonderful preparation that we all enjoyed. I would definitely rate this at 9/10. 

Large Prawns Steamed With Eggs @ RM 28.62
This was again another fantastic dish. 12 large prawns they are and the dish was only priced at RM 28.62 . Taste wise, this was quite unique. They had used Rice Wine and egg and that gave a wonderful blend of flavours. A good one to have here and I would rate this at 9/10. 

Teo Chew Style Steamed Fish @ RM 24.38
That was such a large cut and it was very reasonable priced at RM 24.38 . The Teo Chew Style of steaming was also perfectly done and it came with lots of pickled vegetables and soft bean curd. A must try here and this deserves a perfect 10/10. 

Butter Crabs (1 Kg) @ RM 57.24
Their Butter Crabs were very fresh and the meat was so juicy. For 1 Kg, it was only priced at RM 57.24 which is the cheapest I have seen in recent times. It's definitely way cheaper that Pantai Batu Laut as well. 9/10 is what I shall give this dish. 

As you can see from the bill, the food is is very cheap and no wonder that this place is so crowded and people are willing to travel the distance.

Beautiful Beach Not Too Far From The Restaurant
Being a fishing town, this place does serve some excellent seafood at ridiculously cheap prices. The food is fresh as fishermen literally dock at this village daily. Even if you want to get some fresh seafood supplies, this would be the perfect place as you could buy them directly from the fishermen. The best route to get here would be via Tanjung Malim using the back road that heads in to Sungai Besar. A mere 80 minute journey that brings you to some heavenly food that's wallet friendly. After your meal, you could relax at the beach side as well. The views are amazing and it's a mere three minutes away from this restaurant.
