Tapah Fish a Huge Cat Fish for Dinner

The Chinese local called it “Lim Yee” or also known as Tapah fish and the scientific name is “Wallago attu”. It is some kind of a cat fish but a big one as big as a human being. But commercially they are now smaller in size and not as aggressive as when they are found in the wild rivers.

This plate of signature steamed “Lim Yee” prepared by Laomazis at Ipoh Road was good. It has lot of cartilage, meaty even though it was a fish head. The going rate is about RM11.00 per 100 grams. If you want to try it then you can go  to Laomazis for this dish.
