TEMERLOH, Feb 26 (Bernama) -- It is an opportunity not to be missed for

those who are in Temerloh town for today''s nomination for the Kerdau state

by-election to head to the nearest food stall or restaurant for the "ikan patin

masak tempoyak" which the town is famous for.

"Sour, hot, delicious and fresh," said a patron at a stall at the Pekan

Sehari Baharuddin Isa, 42 in Kerdau, about 23 kilometres from the Temerloh town.

Baharuddin Isa, 42 said the "patin" (a type of freshwater catfish known as

Pengasious Nasutus ) in Temerloh were reared in cages.

"That is what made the ''patin'' dish delicious. If the fish is reared in a

pond, it will have a different taste. The way the fish is cooked in Temerloh is

also different than in other places," he added.

A police inspector from Shah Alam, Selangor, Johari Ahmad, said he had

planned to have the ''patin'' dish for his meal before arriving in Temerloh.

"The ''ikan patin masak tempoyak'' here is sourish and hot," he added.

Due to the overwhelming response, some food stall operators had to employ

additional workers for the day as they had to cook more.

"I have to get two extra workers. People from all over Malaysia are here and

they want to try our ''ikan patin masak tempoyak''," said Shamsuddin Joned, who

owns the "Singgah Sokmo" rice stall.

Amron Ambut said he had to make extra orders for the ''patin'' fish from his

supplier and had yet to stop cooking since morning.

Fish rearer, Shaari Othman said patin fish caught in the rivers could be

sold for RM80 per kg, but it was difficult to get.

"For ''patin'' reared in cages, it is sold for between RM12 and RM14 per kg,"

he added.
