Literally translated to the ‘white whiskered grandpa’ catfish. The silver catfish is often regarded as the crème of crop by most foodies from Central Malaysia, the flesh is silky, creamy and does not carry muddy taste due to its preferred habitat of running stream. This fish is steamed together with “katuk” leaves or sauropus in English.

It’s delicious and fun and you should totally drink it sometimes. It just isn’t particularly good for you. At best it breaks even, nutritionally speaking. At worst, it’s a sugar-load dessert drink. Let’s take the standard drink of popular bubble tea …
