Kapah

that's what the locals in Tarakan calls this kind of sea shels. i went out on a bicycle ride last week which ends up on Amal beach, and eat some Kapah.
4 kilos of Kapah could be saute'd and became what you see on the above picture. it's cooked with some garlics and onions with lots of spices

and this is how we eat it, with some Buras (Borneo style rice cakes), 2 type of sambals (one made from garlic, chilli peppers and lime, while the other one is made from chilli, coconut milk, and some anchovy), and a big coconut to wash the thirst away... yumm..!!

Some places in Jakarta sell those clams too. It's "kepah", they say it here.

I'd love to try those in Tarakan. Looks much more scrumptious than those here which usually cooked only using oyster sauce. Oleh-oleh? ;p

Yup! yummy Kapah, thats the right lingo "Kepah", but since every Malay vocabs change here in Borneo, so, thats what it sounds like "Kapah", it's also nice when you sauteed it with garlic,shallots and a little parsley with mediteranean herbs while fresh!"TOIK" i'm drooling...
