Kang Guan Seafood Carey Island
We heard so much on Pulau Ketam in Selangor and yet we almost forgot about Carey Island. The island is located to the south of Port Klang and north of Banting town ( I have enclose the GPS location below) and it is separated by Langat River.
It is named after Edward Valentine John Carey, an Englishman planter after he acquired the island from late Sultan Sir Alaeddin Sulaiman Shah of Selangor to start rubber plantations. Since then the island is known as Carey Island (Pulau Carey).
Near the island there is one seafood restaurant that is popular among the locals and the name is Kang Guan Seafood restaurant. It is a pork free restaurant and there are many Muslims enjoying seafood during most of the time. I was there some time ago for a seafood lunch. Here goes.
Stir Fried Bamboo Clam
If you are lover of bamboo clam, they offer large size bamboo clams. The clams were fresh and a simple stir fried retains most of its original taste with hints of the “cili padi”.
Stir Fried Mantis Prawn Kung Po Style
The most popular way to cook mantis prawn in Malaysia is to deep fry the meat and stir fried it with kung po sauce. This is extremely addictive with crunchy mantis prawn infused with thick kung po spicy sauce.
Kam Heong Crabs
Fresh crabs cooked and stir fried with kam heong style. This might not the best way to original taste of crabs but their version is flavourful and delicious. I have no complains.
Butter Nestum Prawns
Prawns deep fried and stir fried with butter sauce and Nestum. Using only butter, the Nestum is cooked till fragrant and crunchiness. I truly enjoyed this as the prawns are fresh and I love the fragrant of the butter nestum.
Overall, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant is not air-conditioned and located at the river bank of Sungai Langat. I have no complaints overall but it is slightly a bit too far from the city. You might need a half day trip to this place.
