Jalan Jalan Cari Ikan ~

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 








What :
MISSION FRESH FISH

Where :
Sabak, Kota Bharu, Kelantan ~ a small fishing village, outskirt of Kota Bharu, lined with countless coconut trees and cut by several waterways.

When :
Everyday, except Friday, from 2 pm to 4 pm..

Who:
The " kampung " (village, small-scale) fishermen, with their Kelantanese-style decorated, single engine boats ~ the so-called " Bot Enjin Galoh ".

Why :
Back in Japan, a regular supply of fresh fishes & prawns from a nearby supermart was something that I really missed. Freshness is everything in Japanese diet and they would greatly cut the price of aged fish ( a day old is considered "aged" ) if not dispose them. Thus, longing for the same freshness brought me to this kampung ( ppl say that fresh fish can be bought anywhere in Kota Bharu nowadays, but with rumours of "chemically treated" fish, brought in from nearby Thailand, I rather choose the "hard way" ~ )

How :
Most fish will usually end up in the middle-men trucks before you could land your hand on them. Either you just buy them from the middle-men ( the price shouldn't differ much from those at the Central Market in Kota Bharu but the freshness is ! ) or if you mind both freshness & bargain, simply go to the fishermen boats and ask for the remaining unsold fish ~ If you are lucky, they will sell you some ( most of them prefer to bring the fish home than selling them away though )
