After exactly one year, we are back on Redang. Last year we found it so beautiful here and came to rest, that’s why we decided to go there again. The options in terms of food are limited, but we managed to get a table at the restaurant Redang Moon – Vitamin Sea Kitchen.
When making your reservation, you pay a deposit of RM50, converted into €10 (with the current exchange rate, well, it’s in bad shape…), and it will be explained to you that on the day you come to eat, between half-past five and six in the afternoon, you will have to come by again to pass on your choice. All fish is freshly caught and prepared here. This takes a lot of preparation, and in order not to keep you waiting for hours, they want to know your choice in advance. We thought this was ideal.
We could choose from several fish species, including the white and red perch, squid, octopus, shrimp, and jernahak. This last Malaysian word told us pretty little, and fortunately, the waitress had the necessary pictures to give us an impression. We chose the jernahak, which turns out to be a snapper, to share and ordered rice (RM3 per plate) and eggplant (RM13). For the drinks, you pay about RM15, and the wine goes per bottle. The price of the fish depends on the day’s catch and in our case, it cost RM160, RM32. Meanwhile, the sun slowly set, and we sat on a small wooden table next to each other on a bench.
