Favorite Place For Patin Dishes in Temerloh, Pahang
(kuala lumpur, malaysia)
Food-court Near Temerloh Jetty
I usually travel about twice a month to Temerloh for work. And when it is time for lunch, I always eat rice with either ikan patin masak tempoyak, or ikan patin asam rebus -- you know, they are the dish specialties of Temerloh town.
And my favourite eating place for ikan patin dishes is at the food-court facing the Pahang River jetty, not far from the Temerloh bus terminal. Here’s a photo of the location.
The place is always crowded during lunch-time, filled by locals and also travellers who stop by at Temerloh when on their way either to Kuala Lumpur or Kuantan.
Although there are other places selling patin dishes, the stalls at this food-court, in my opinion, serve the best patin dishes in town, maybe even in the whole of Pahang!
The patin fishes are mostly of the "patin sangkar" (caged) type commonly reared along the banks of the Pahang River. And the price for a slice of the patin dish (about one third of the fish) costs about RM5.00 only.
And I usually order warm tea with lime juice (or "teh limau suam") to go with the dishes.
Everyone should try the patin dishes there. They are really delicious.
