Warung Mak Beng

The Ibu Oka of fish

What we say: 4 stars

The speciality at this open-air, decades-old eatery is the fish packet which is basically a piece of fried fish, fish soup and rice. It sounds rather ordinary, but that all changes when the meal arrives.

The fried fish is crispy, salty and ever so moist on the inside. The soup is filled with all the other parts of the fish that most won't eat such as the bones and cartilage, but this is no problem — just pull the inedible bits out and drink the soup or pour it on your rice. Spicy, fishy, heavenly broth.

The prices here are steep by warung standards, but this place has a stellar reputation among locals and is packed as a result and is reminiscent of the roast pig warung, Ibu Oka in Ubud. Definitely worth a try if you're into fish.

You'll find Warung Mak Beng on the north side of the beach end of Jalan Hang Tuah, just before the parking area.
