Intent on replicating our Melaka food trip, our first stop that rainy morning was for wanton mee and chee cheong fun that was freshly steamed and served up on the spot.
The wanton mee was not bad, and the chee cheong fun was great.
Then, we hopped to another coffeeshop for bak kut teh.
And then, it was on to our seafood lunch. But of course.
And then, to top it off, our final bill came up to less than S$25 per person for the close-to-10-course meal, including beer. So it was a happy ending. Except for the lobsters.
*Thanks to MS, who organised the trip.
**To get to Pengerang, take the bumboat from Changi jetty, the same place where you board the boat to Pulau Ubin. Get there early, because there appears to be only two 12-seater bumboats plying the one-hour journey to Pengerang, and waiting for the next available ride can take more than an hour. Remember your passport.
On reaching Pengerang, catch a cab at the jetty into town. The fare should cost RM20 per vehicle.
I don't have the address for the chee cheong fun/wanton mee and bak kut teh coffeeshops, but Pengerang is so small, just ask the cabby about it. Ditto the seafood restaurant.
***I am not supposed to eat seafood because I had just given birth and seafood is toxic. So what was I doing on a seafood-eating trip? To eat the bak kut teh, of course.
