That famous Sitiawan’s James Cendol in front of the Indian temple, next to The Store @ Sitiawan. Sultan Azlan Shah was here at one time.
Sitiawan is known for its strong Foochow heritage. Various traditional Foochow dishes such as Red Rice Wine Vermicelli, “Kong Piang” are served in Sitiawan restaurants and households alike, as well as this “Goroow” which is Spicy and Sour Fish Maw Soup. Fish maws are fried before adding it into the sweet & sour soup, other ingredients found were wood ear fungus, egg and chives. The broth is spicy, sour, sweet, savoury and eggy-thick, a very satisfying soup indeed. Another renowned Foochow dish made with red glutinous wine, mee suah and chicken.
O chien a crispy rendition that I never try before and this certainly a lot better than the common oyster omelet that contain soft and chewy batter. Studded with copious of small oyster, this crispy deep fried egg omelet was addictively delicious and go well with the famous Kampung Koh chili sauce too!

We do not know about the Sitiawan’s specialty biscuit: Gong Pian before we went to Sitiawan. We were having some drinks in Setiawan Club and one of our local friend went out and got us some of this Gong Pian which was still piping hot. The freshly baked biscuits were so fragrant and mouth-watering. Basically there are only 2 types of Gong Pian which is onion with lard and char siew.

A non-halal Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant at Kg Cina before which is famous for its dim sum and curry puffs. Both of that tasted really nice. Many locals patronized this shop so obviously my local friends in Setiawan brought us here.

Being claimed as Malaysia’s 1st coconut jelly enterprise, it sells cooling and tasty coconut jelly, one of the best jellies I’ve tasted around. With coconut flesh to add to, it really is worth trying especially on a very hot day.
