River View Seafood Restaurant @ Pasir Penambang, Kuala Selangor

I remember the first time I visited Kuala Selangor back in 2000 to see the fireflys at Kg. Kuantan. After taking quick walk around Bukit Melawati as the sun was setting we set off I noticed some rustic looking buildings in the distance, some on stilts jutting out into the river. Due to the absence of a decent map and the desire to find the firefly’s at I didn’t explore further.

During another visit in 2001 I decided to drive around and explore and found myself in Pasir Penambang. One particular restaurant called River View Seafood Restaurant looked busy, had a sunset view and despite not being hungry we stopped to check it out. We enjoyed our snack and cold beer whilst watching the sun set and returned many times over the years when guests have visited.

Over years the place has become more touristy and is popular with most Malaysians due to its pork free status. The prices seemed to have increased but reasonable and the food/ambiance is still the same which is pleasing.  

We recently took some guests to Kuala Selangor and with the new KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR Expressway) the journey is much quicker and easier. Naturally makan makan at Roverview was on the agenda.
  Easy to spot but parking can be an issue. 

The spacious and open interior. There is also a small upper floor available

River view and sunset

Soon after sunset we departed for Kg. Kuantan and I couldn't help reflect on how hard it used to be to navigate the small and dark roads in the days before GPS was available for cars.

We enjoyed our meal at River View look forward to returning again soon for another sunset experience.
