Ikan Bakar – Johor Bahru

Senibong Seafood Village is a stretch of seven seafood restaurants in Kampung Senibong in Permas Jaya. All the seafood restaurants here have dining sections over the beach and face the Straits of Johor. Anjung Senibong Malay Sea Food is very well appointed, and like the rest, it also had an outdoor dining area on stilts.

I have been an ardent fan of Johor style barbecued fish…no other states can rival this cuisine. Johor style barbecued fish is normally barbecued on banana leaf with a very thick reddish sauce.

For the night we choose barbecued Ikan Pipi Tebal ( Thick Chin Fish ), butter fried prawns and chili fried squids. The signature dish is definitely the barbecued fish. The fish was smothered in a brownish red blanket of gritty oily sambal chili. The fish was very fresh. It’s soft white flesh was filled with hot clear sweet juices. The savoury spicy sambal chili complemented the mild tasting ikan pipi tebal flesh very well.
