Travelling Culinary Seafood in Piayu Laut Batam

That afternoon sun so oppressive in Batam. The five of us were planning on enjoying the culinary tour in Piayu Laut. Based on information from friends that there are traditional kelong in Piayu Laut offering seafood at very cheap and though the taste is not inferior to the No. 1 seafood dishes in Batam . This is an opportunity that should not be abandoned. Our culinary wandering spirit could not let this opportunity.

With motorcycle riding we headed to Piayu Laut. It takes about 30 minutes drive from Mukakuning to Piayu Laut. The road to the Piayu Laut paved fairly smooth only about 100 meters before we were headed the kelong still a gravel road not paved. Along the way we were treated to such a beautiful sight, to the left of under the road lay the ocean, the sea sparkling sunlight overwritten so hot. Sea water is colorful marine life that live show below. The reflection of the seawater was like a rainbow-colored green, blue, pink, yellow and brown. Just as distant seas bordered by dense mangrove forests as a bulwark greenish. As for the right way up hills interspersed with views of the ocean and the bridge 1 Barelang towering in the distance.

After reaching the Piayu Laut we seek Kelong Pak RW. In Piayu Laut there are three adjacent kelong, as recommendations go to our friend is Kelong Pak RW which is famous cheap but very tasty cuisine. We were pleasantly surprised at the kelong because very crowded, this happens because it coincides with a holiday. Before we booked our seafood, we sight-seeing fish, crabs, cuttlefish and “gonggong” , special slugs from Batam,  in cages.

Kelong Pak RW is very simple appearance, a kelong made of wooden  on stilts over the sea like fishermen houses in the sea. But the view from the kelong is so beautiful, we were treated to a view across the kelong island overgrown mangrove forest green with clear sea water. Sometimes the fishing boat passes in front of the kelong.

After being around at the kelong and get a seat with a beautiful view we ordered the seafood, of course, we ask the price first. And below is the price:

  • Crab: IDR 50,000/kg
  • Cuttlefish: IDR 60,000/kg
  • Reef fish: IDR 55,000/kg
  • Slugs/Gonggong: IDR 30,000/kg

The price above is the price after  cooked. Very cheap isn’t it, because for class kelong restaurant can cost 2-3 time.

After a long wait for our order being cooked because so many visitors we finally get to enjoy the delicious seafood dusk. And it’s true even though the price is cheap but it tastes really delicious, though the seafood dishes no less than resto . Eating seafood must be accompanied by a fresh coconut. And today our culinary tour is very satisfying.
