    Asam Pedas Claypot

    With a gargantuan signboard and teeming crowd, you’re more than pleased that this renowned restaurant is the spot to hit to charm your taste buds with an impeccable bowl of assam pedas. Staying true to the name, the tangy and spicy broth is served in a claypot, filled to the brim with okras and fish of your choice – either stingray, mackerel or kembong. The mound of white rice that tows along just begs to be bathed with the gravy that packs a punch, while the fish just flakes off the bone with the mildest of effort. Since it’s pretty affordable, no one is going to judge you if you clamour for the claypot to be refilled.
