Mari Makan di Tanjung Sepat

When dad suggested that we should go out together, it must be something we should all game for.

“Let’s have a day food trip to Tanjung Sepat”
Not a surprise at all, I was the first to agree immediately.


Equipped with a “food map”, we were so ready to go hunt down some famous delicacies at Tanjung Sepat.


Stopped half-way to quench our thirst with some rambutans


Tanjung Sepat is a town in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, on the Straits of Malacca which is primarily a fishing town & is about 20 minutes away from Morib Beach.
We stopped by again at one of the fishing village for some snaphots.

It was actually more like a half-day trip and a full day trip as we ran late and reached Tanjung Sepat about 3pm.
But we were lucky……
Know why?
#1 Freshly steamed PAUs came out the right time!


During the ‘in-search’ progress of our first stop: the famous Hai Yew Heng Pork Pau, we noticed a petite individual shoplot surrounded with many people lining up. That must be it!
When we entered, many people were already lining up, waiting to buy dozens of paus.



Check the list out.
One corner with dumpling fans, another corner tucked with dumpling ‘manufacturing’. Busy as a bee, making and steaming up to thousands of paus everyday. The dumpling buns here were still laboriously hand-made. There were even tour buses who dropped by this little outlet where the tourists were introduced and fed with these savoury ball of dough. Loads of reservations made, and we were lucky to get some for ourselves.




#2 Tea Break with Buns and Fishballs
After taking away the buns, we settled at the coffe shop opposite Hai Yew Heng to check those paus with different stuffings out. This coffee shop USED to be Hai Yew Heng’s bun manufacturing spot (same owner). Looks like business expanded quickly and they decided to build an extension opposite only to sell these famous buns. We only manage to get 3 different types ingredient fillings. Pork and preserved vegetable buns are in the top list!



1. Bouncy fishballs are highly recommended. Seems like they are selling these fishballs everywhere in Tanjung Sepat.
2. Taking a PAU break
3. Kuih Udang the light snack and our hunger saviour while waiting for the buns.
4. Udang Kering that mom bought. Put in some while stir-frying your vegetables at home. It gives more ‘oomph’ explained the local aunty.
#3 Despite the rainy season, weather was terrific that day and we spent some time chillin’ around at Lover’s Bridge




my wacky brothers




#4 Dinner at Baywatch Restaurant
Seeking for hours of relaxation and serenity away from the bustling city and every-tired lifestyle? Take a break and plan a get-away here for outskirts chill out. This eatery is located not very far from Lover’s Bridge, is settled by the seaside. While enjoying seafood meals, one can seek tranquility by enjoying the breeze and not to forget; the sunset.


Deep Fried Beancurd with Minced Pork – crispy outler layer enwrapping the silky smooth tofu, with flavoursome mined pork went very well with the rice.



Live Razor Clams (Bamboo Clams) Kam Heong style – With its shell removed, these bamboo sweethearts were stir fried fragrantly ala kam heong style and was pleasantly tasted.


Yin Yang Fish – splited into two parts: steamed and stir-fried with black pepper. Do check this out. I personally adore the black peppered fish more to the steamed version but my family preferred the opposite ;P


Salted egg Crabs – we were expecting a lip smacking seafood from Tanjung Sepat all day long but was way disappointed with this dish. One of their specialty it seemed, but the crabs weren’t very fresh and this cooking method with salted egg was too dry. Not the best choice.


Check out the map 🙂
Circled in RED are the Hai Yew Heng Buns & Baywatch Restaurant respectively.
