Mersing’s oldest Chinese restaurant is one of the friendliest and busiest places in town. You may have to wait for a marble table to enjoy the deliciously prepared prawn and pork dishes. The speciality, whole steame…
As well as housing a collection of stalls selling hawker food, this new centre opposite the ferry terminal is where you go to book ferry tickets and resorts on Tioman as well as to pay the marine park entrance fee.
A little open-air bar and eatery right at the jetty, with surprisingly good international grub such as pizza (from RM24) and grilled chicken salad with balsamic dressing (RM12).
A lovely place to chill out in the air-con with a meal (pizza, Malay-style noodles, rice dishes and more), a coffee and something sinful such as tiramisu or rich cheesecake.
Serving up roti canai (flaky, flat bread), roti telur (roti with an egg), nasi goreng (fried rice) and vegetarian options at astoundingly cheap prices.
Seafood stalls open up nightly near the bus station along the river.
