Coco Garden Asam Fish is one of the stalls popular with Muar locals. This stall located in Coco Garden Hawker Centre is run by the friendly Ong couple. They were operating a cze char (literally means “cook and fried” stall in Hokkien dialect) for 20 years until they decided to specialise in asam pedas fish about 10 years ago.
The Ongs make their own sambal chilli which sits prominently in a large aluminium pot at the front of the stall.

The other popular dish at
The towkay recommended that we eat the fish with some dark sauce soy.
Personally, my taste buds prefer eating the succulent white flesh without any condiments so that I can taste its natural freshness and flavours.
