Restoran Ikan Bakar Fend

ikan bakar fend

Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend is a very popular ikan bakar (BBQ fish) place at SS6 in Petaling Jaya. It’s my second time there – it’s always packed with the lunchtime crowd but for some strange reason the planets aligned and our entire floor in the office converged at the place at 12:30 pm, taking up approximately 8 tables.

The place has a very simple setup – the BBQ pit is located outside and churns out an impressive array of stingray, various fishes and assorted marine life for the rapid clientele turnover.

Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend works on a trust system – you pick and choose what you want. You recite what you ate at the counter after the meal and they charge you accordingly. The place is remarkably clean for such a messy meal.

ikan bakar ulam

The place also serves ulam for a touch of authenticity.

The meal comes in a set – there’s steamed rice and two sauces and you pick the type of fish you want to add on to it. I had ikan kembung (some kind of local fish) and ikan pari (stingray) as well as two different types of ulam.

TTL shows us how ulam is meant to be eaten. There are no complicated rituals or arcane incantations, just some dexterous finger action.

ulam folded

The stalk of the vegetable is supposed to be twisted and folded into a compact and neat bite-sized structure.

ulam dip

It is then dipped into sauce…

…and eaten. I still can’t do the folding thing right so I’m going to get TTL to fold it for me when I go again. πŸ˜‰

Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend is a great place to head to if you’re hankering for some ikan bakar. It’s a testament to the popularity of the place that they don’t require a proper signboard – the place uses a canvas signboard tied down with rope, and it’s been in operation for over a year!


It’s not very easy to find though so here’s Google Maps to the rescue!

  3. your map is wrong lah. it is somewhere at glomac square there, behind subway, behind the alladin restaurant.
    but the ikan bakar is really superb. last time they used to sell their ikan bakar using a van underneath a tree. and the queue was damn long, and their ikan bakar finished damn fast.
    now that they have a shop, it is great because they have more supplies of ikan already. hehehe.

  4. HB, my parents really readed your blog like daliy newspapers. I told them you might shock them at times with your entries of young people lifes in Malaysia. Yes they were shocked and said Ai Yeah! Well I told them so.

  5. Hey buddy, when did you start the site back up? I used to read your site all the time before it went down.

  8. damn….i just saw this post.
    Fend’s just a few walks away from my office!
    Yup..the food’s good. But if you really wanna know, the restaurant had changed owners for three times now. I wonder whether they’ll change for the fourth time or not.

  9. oh wow, i just saw this post too. i’m a regular there at Fend’s and i live nearby. Surprised to as why haven’t seen you around!
    and about the owner, if i’m not mistaken, it’s the same owner ever since the opened a small van/stall near SKKJ(1&2) a few years back.

  10. Brother, your google map is pointing to the totally wrong place laaaa… It is at another side of the road, not at the place u point “Somewhere here”… I went to find this place according to ur “Somewhere here” and i ended up circling around that area for half an hour la bro! If you have time, pls correct the photo of google map. It is actually directly behind Giant Mall (in ur google map, its the empty area under Jalan ss6/12 at the bottom). But i think the google map is not updated.. so in there it doesnt show any roads there.

  11. hah, this shop! i’ve ate at this shop! ikan bakar is superb… hehehhe… im coming again today… all the way from damansara.. hauhauahuaha…… and you should try their sirap bandung… heheheh

  12. Ashraf: Yup, I used to work in the SS6 area. πŸ™‚
    emir: Sorry about that. Haha! πŸ™‚
    nina: Yup! I prefer their stingray though, but will surely try their sirap bandung and see if it’s good as the one back home! πŸ™‚
