Freshwater Prawns - Udang Galah

Rompin is famous for its yummy prawn dishes. If you are a seafood lover, you should probably visit in the best time : September - October.  These fresh prawns are caught from the Rompin river, Nenasi River, Endau and Anak Endau River. 

There is a restaurant called Restoran Leban Condong in Kampung Leban Condong that specializes in fresh, ready-to-cook giant prawns. There is also a famous restaurant for giant prawn lovers in Menchali Forest Reserve. 

Other than prawns, Rompin is also a place where you can find clams or kepah. You can join the locals to collect clams when the water level in the river is shallow and the sandy islands on the rivers are easy to reach.
