One of the most esstablished restaurants in town, probably more than 50 years in business. The founder has passed away and his children have taken over his business.For traditional Fuzhou cuisine, this has to be the one.

Since most visitors would likely end up in one of the restaurants of Ayer Tawar, there is nothing really they should fear. Order the usual dishes you are familiar with.
Since the food is so cheap here, you shouldn't complain.

Fun Alternatives: If you do see him, just avoid him, unless you are kind enough to donate to charitable cause ( ? )
There is a smaller version of the Great Wall, which is 300 m in length and about 1 m high, and you can walk the whole length.This is Kg Merbau, the No. 2 New Village of Ayer Tawar. You can see it when you take a drive to Pantai Remis ( then to Taiping or Penang ) from Ayer Tawarmore
