I was then back to the apartment and again it was dinner that we were looking forward to. Between that, my mother had wanted to visit one of the famous Lord Anjaneya temples there. With that thought in mind, we head out to the famous beach side of Port Dickson which is called Teluk Kemang. As you know from my previous entries, we stayed quite close to the town but the famous resorts are on the other end of Port Dickson which is very much, the southern end of the state which borders the state of Malacca.
Here, the beaches are wider, more scenic and suitable for many other beach activities including water boarding. The drive itself took almost 30 minutes. Once the temple was done, we headed further south to one of my favorite restaurants here which I have been numerous times, Pantai Seafood Restaurant.
Apparently this restaurant too has converted into Halal status to cater for the Muslim crowd that visits this seaside town. That means they no longer serve pork on premise. With that move, to me it seemed a little move towards commercialization. I was hoping that the quality did not dwindle.
We placed our orders and the owner seemed to have employed all Muslim employees, at least on the forefront. I am quite certain that the cooks were all still Chinese.
We placed our orders and food started arriving after about half an hour. The menu for the night was as per the following dishes:
The dishes were good and by the time we finished our dinner it was almost 10 pm. It seems that this restaurant closes much earlier now compared to before and by 10.30 pm, they were already stacking up the chairs. It made sense as there were no other patrons beside us.
Now, payment time. Apparently their prices have gone up and for those dishes above, we paid a total of RM 100 which is around USD 30, which I felt was on the high side for Port Dickson. Of course when you compare it to Kuala Lumpur, it may still seem cheaper but for Port Dickson standard, it was typically tourist price.
Now, at least for the sake of having come to a seaside town, we decided to visit the famous beach here.....Teluk Kemang.
