We came across a lot of stalls by the roadside selling Mentarang (Pholas orientalis) on the way to Sabak Bernam. On our way back, we bought some 8kg of mentarang for my family, my parent, my in-laws and neighbours (yes, I really love our neighbours!).That was my first encounter with mentarang (after 33 years living in Malaysia?? Can you imagine?). I was so excited. I love shellfish and I have a tendency to stop at the stall with bold red stall signs (here). We stopped by at one of the stalls to taste grilled mentarang. It does tastes yummy and the deep fried mentarang really suitable for a po'boy!
