Kuala Sepetang (Port Weld) is a fishing village near Taiping and is famous for its fresh seafood and mee banjir udang. It is around twenty kilometers from Taiping town and roughly twenty-five minutes traveling time. We were in Taiping for the cheng beng and we took the opportunity to try out the seafood after reading about it in the Kwong Wah Yit Poh. The quiet town of Kuala Sepetang was buzzing with excitement due to the coming Bukit Gantang by-election. The roads were packed with vehicles parking on the roadside which was lined and decorated with the flags and banners of all parties. FRU and police trucks were everywhere as well. What a timing indeed!
After maneuvering through the jam, we finally reached the Restaurant Tepi Sungai. Quite literally, as the restaurant is RIGHT beside the river! It is on the first floor of the building. The ground floor is the docking area for the fishing boats.
Beautiful scenery of the river would be heaven for photographers
