About Sri Rezeki Seafood Kelong!

Okay, I have been recommending this seafood restaurant countless times because many Singaporeans like to experience good seafood in sort of kelong environment.

1. Is Sri Rezeki really that good?

- Taste is relative. I do not think this is #1 in Batam but its standard is definitely there. I brought many Singaporeans here before and I can tell you there were only 2 groups who thought this place is okay only. The rest like it.

2. Is it worth the travel?

- Nagoya: It takes 40-45 mins for Rp. 100,000 by cab

- Batam Center: It takes 25-30 mins for Rp. 70,000-100,000

- Nongsa: It takes < 10 mins for Rp. 50,000

- Waterfront: It takes 50-60mins for Rp. 100,000-150,000

Most travelers live in Nagoya so let's say you want to eat at Sri Rezeki. The round trip cost is already Rp. 200,000 ($30). With that, I can bring you to eat some awesome local road stalls that will satisfy you.

So think for yourself... see if it's worth it to make this trip.

Good luck!

Most welcomed janice. I am sure you will enjoy the food. Here are some food recommendations:

1. Ikan Yucham (Deep fried fish in Yucham sauce). Just choose cheaper fish.

2. Chili crab

3. Deep fried Sotong

4. Kangkung blacan

5. Steamed flower crabs

6. Gong gong

These should be plenty for you. The rest you can pick and choose :) Let us know your review if you do go there.

Enjoy!

Your post is not supposed to be for this thread but well, no good seafood places that i would recommend. Maybe some 'zi char' place but seafood kelong type, you have to travel around 30 mins.

Yes, it's called 'Riverside'. It's not easy to find but it's not hard either. Distance is about 45 mins from city but a bit more kampong.

Taste is not bad but lost the old standard because the first cook (the father) passed away a few years back. And price is quite expensive compared to the others. But if you have the money and would like to try something totally different, by all means, please do so. I don't think you will come out disappointed.

To me, the food at winsor food court is average too.

I do not think that Nagoya has any similiar standard and experience compared to Sri Rezeki. As Sri Rezeki uses live seafood, the zichar restaurants around Nagoya uses frozen seafood. So that's the difference.

If you do not mind the frozen ones, Weywey seafood restaurant at harbourbay is recommendable.

Cheers!

Norma,

It's a hit or miss kinda thing. I recommended some to my local friends here but very much mixed review.

But if you really wanna try barelang, go for Citra Rasa in Barelang 4th bridge.
