Jb People's Favourite Nutrient List. Tip Superlative Ikan Bakar. Tepian Tebrau |Johor Kaki Travels For Food
Tip Top Ikan Bakar is in all likelihood the nearly famous BBQ stingray stall inwards Johor Bahru (yet it took me half dozen years of blogging , 1 stall at a fourth dimension earlier I got hither 😂 ). The thirty twelvemonth onetime stall for sure lives upwards to its formidable reputation , specially its killer sambal chili.
Thomas has been running Tip Top Ikan Bakar for fifteen years now. Tip Top was founded past times Thomas' father-in-law who started the stall over thirty years agone operating exterior Sultanah Aminah Hospital. He too then moved to Dataran Bandaraya earlier coming to Tepian Tebrau hawker view xi years ago. Thomas' father-in-law silent comes to the stall occasionally.
Thomas is supported past times a cheerful too friendly team.
Thomas personally handpicks his seafood at Larkin marketplace position earlier opening for describe organisation at 12:00 noon.
Besides ikan bakar , Thomas serves a gain of other seafood dishes similar chili crab , asam pedas , Indonesian agency curry prawns etc.
But today , I am hither simply for Tip Top's legendary ikan bakar (BBQ stingray).
The large winner is the killer sambal chili piled thick too generously on run past times of the slab of stingray. It's 1 of the best sambal chili that I accept tasted before.
It's a good balanced blend of tangy , sugariness , spicy too savoury flavours from a mix of chopped shallot , pulpy chili , lime juice , cinchalok (fermented shrimps) etc. The sambal chili has a pretty abrupt sting too a spicy aftertaste that fortunately fades quite quickly.
The slab of stingray which costed RM17 (depending on weight) was skilfully grilled. It was tender too juicy , alongside nearly of the flavours coming from the robust sambal chili. There was also a subtle pleasant toasty gustation from the charred banana leafage underneath the slab of fish.
The fish , nevertheless , was of average freshness today.
Leftovers Analysis 👉 Nothing left really... simply the charred banana leafage , which I didn't consume 😜 I ate the bones equally good , equally I similar the tender crunchy texture. The sambal chili was slightly greasy but totally irresistible.
My favourite drinkable to become alongside ikan bakar is buah kedongdong or buah long long juice. I got mine from Anwar too Karl's stall #15.
👉 Tip Top Ikan Bakar has 1 of the best sambal chili for BBQ stingray inwards Singapore too Malaysia.
