Intro to sultan fish. It is a freshwater fish that has not be successfully bred in captivity. Hence, it can be pretty pricey. I believe there are a lot of fakes out there as the fish does not have many distinguishing features. In fact, it looks a bit like the picture on my favourite fried dace. Of course, you can’t fool an old bird like Chua Lam. He tells you it’s sultan, it has to be sultan. The only type of fish that Chua Lam hadn’t tried before? Mermaid.
You’ll never forget this fish. The taste and the price. A Malaysian river fish becomes a delicacy in Macau. Sake tasting with a Taiwanese expert Fufu is a real bonus.
