Tebakang, prawns and cocks

"Big Headed Prawns". These bad boys breed naturally in a river that flows through a small village 60km from Kuching town - Tebakang.


 To the prawns, the river of no return

These wondrous prawns (we're talking big, fat, juicy, fresh outta the river prawns here, not shrimp eh) do not fail to impress every single time. Cooked in a tomato based sauce with onions and just the right piquancy of everything else, it tastes not too different from lobsters in a milky cheesy sauce. The succulency of every bite, squirting with juices, I'm rather proud that I only stained my white top with one tiny speckle, har har.

 
Silly me, was too excited that we forgot to take pictures before devouring everything





Directly in front of the small family-operated restaurant is a large chicken coop. We were serenaded with crowing cocks as we stuffed our faces. At 3pm, we figured that the cocks' body clocks went kaput from the gloomy weather.
