Functioning as a carpark in the day, Akau Potong Lembu sees a stream of hawkers pushing in their food carts in the late afternoon and transforms into an open-air hawker centre at night. It is popular amongst natives of Tanjung Pinang for its cheap and delicious local fare.
There is a large majority of Chinese tenants here, hence its common to hear dialects such as Hokkien or Teochew. This also means that many mouth-watering Chinese dishes such as Bak Kut Teh and Char Kway Tiao can be found here. Highly recommended by the locals, the fish soup here is a must-try!
Muslim travelers can also find a row of local Malay food stalls here, serving perfectly grilled satay, and other authentic local dishes.
Also, try the famous Ice Chendol, a classic dessert for the perfect antidote to the warm summer nights of Bintan and end off the day on a sweet note.
