Long weekends are a major blessing to me. Not only does it mean more time for me to rest & be a complete sloth, but also more chance to eat food that we normally have no chance to eat cause of time issue. This time mother wanted to go back to Bentong for our favourite getaway restaurant. 

 
With no hesitation we ordered their stir-fried pig intestine's with dried shrimp, garlic and chillies. This was as good as I last remembered it to be as the intestines were nicely crunchy and mixed with the saltiness of the extra bits plus chillies makes it even yummier. I kind of wished that we had ordered two plates instead of one. 

 
And this was my mother's favourite which was poached kampung chicken. It was pretty good though considering that poultry is not my first choice of meat to eat, I was not too interested in this. However the ginger, scallion, garlic and oil mix that is meant to be eaten with the chicken was what I had more of. 

 
We also ordered a simple steamed fish in soya sauce that came with ginger slices and fried garlic bits. However I kind of forgotten what kind of fish it was only that the meat was super tender & juicy because all their produce is as fresh as can be. Not surprising since we were practically sitting right next to a farm where there are actual animals. 

 
As an added treat we got these fried prawns that were crunchy and salty too because of the batter they were tossed in. At least that's what I presume the flavours were from since there isn't a sauce or anything like that. These were my favourite cause the shells are super crispy which means no peeling required. Just pop them in your mouth and chew it all up.

Definitely worth the drive up here just for their food. Though be warned that over the weekends and any time later than 12pm, there is a crazy amount of people. All with the same idea too. So come early!

Full to the brim Smile Nov 02, 2015

After trying their specialty fish dish, we were back again to try their other food which also came with great review from mom's friend. Since she goes there quite often whether on the way up or down from Genting, we trust her word. Also she really wanted to bring us back there again after a mini-roadtrip.

This time she ordered something specially for me. Chicken Stewed with Chinese Wine & Ginger which not many restaurants can get right. Nothing could ever come close to the one that my grandmother used to cook for the family. Until I tried New Rainbow's. 

 
Each of us were served a bowl filled to the brim with the stewed chicken and the soup, with plenty of slithers of ginger that gave the whole thing a very nice heat. 

Also as a special order and something I have never tried before, there was chunks of fried egg at the bottom of the bowl. When you take a bite of it, the egg bursts with the soup that it had been soaking in the whole time. The chicken was also incredibly tender which comes as no surprise as it was cooked in the wine and also it's own yummy juices.

 
Though truth be told, I was only in it for the soup which I drank by the spoonfuls even if the wine really had quite the alcohol kick. By the end of dinner my face was flushing already and that didn't even stop me from finishing up my mother's bowl of wine & ginger soup.

So far, the food here has been very good even if it is a little out of our way to go just for a meal. But if we were to ever pass by there then it would definitely be the place to stop.

Weekend getaway.  OK Sep 14, 2015

As a mini weekend getaway, my mom decided to bring her friends and myself to this restaurant which was a rather relaxing place to have brunch at. Though be warned, if you are there any later than 11pm then you would find it a struggle to get into as there's only one way in & out which is via the bridge; plus there's a scarce number of parking spaces. 
Dine by the river.

Dine by the river.

 
Also you would want to pick your table which the best place to be seated is down by the river. Which I assume is the coolest spot, in terms of weather conditions. 

 
A must order at this place is their steamed kampung chicken. Apparently the meat is fresh as the animal is killed to order or at least that's what they say. Even if the chicken is not immediately slaughtered then it is done so early in the morning to present optimum freshness.

This half of the bird was pretty good, though the meat was lacking in the springyness that comes from a good kampung chicken. 

 
The other half of the chicken is cooked braised in ginger sauce. This was one of my favourite dishes as the flavour was good. 

 
Another order that was my favourite is the herbal soup with pork meat. Apparently this soup had been brewing since the crack of dawn to provide maximum flavour and I believe them. The herbal scent & taste was thick and the soup had an immense amount of depth in flavour. I had two helpings of this. 

 
Something that comes highly recommended by the restaurant is their wild boar dishes. A famous way of cooking the exotic meat is to be braised in curry but we opted for it to be stir-fried with ginger and scallions. This isn't a very common and easily found dish in KL so this was interesting.

The meat is more chewy and less fatty than regular pork, so there's more bite to this. Plus there's a very distinct meaty taste that not even plenty of ginger or scallion can cover. Worth a try if wild boar meat is something you have yet to taste. 

The place isn't very easily found, but waze will guide you there easily. However if you are up for the drive out of KL then this is an interesting restaurant to have a meal at, especially for a family day out.

FISH. MUCH.  Smile Sep 08, 2015

I was lucky to have been brought to this restaurant to try something that they are quite popular for - their Soon Hock fish. Apparently this fish is also known as Marble Goby fish in English and considered one of the largest species in Malaysia. Also one of the more expensive kind.

No surprise as the one that we were served was a whole whopping 7kgs and priced at Rm180 per kg, you can imagine just how much our meal came up to.

Because we did not want to only have one dish, the person that brought us to this restaurant suggested that we have half the fish steamed and the other fried. Smart move because this way we have more varieties. 

 
The first method of cooking is steaming the Soon Hock with sweet soya sauce and lots of fried garlic. I now understand why this fish his so highly priced and also why people always say that the bigger this fish is, the better. 

There's something very meaty about the Soon Hock. While some fish are soft & tender, this was crunchy, juicy and also succulent. I do not know how to describe it exactly but there is definitely no need for rice as you eat this fish.

They also gave us different kinds of condiments, two being requested by a friend as she's the regular customer there. So she asked for a plate of fried shallots & garlic with some soya sauce for everyone and said that this is good to eat with the fish - which was very true. Then chili & garlic in soya sauce, fish sauce and some lime juice which happened to be my favourite.

The service there is excellent even if there were many other tables filled with patrons. 

 
Then there is also the deep fried Soon Hock with sweet soya sauce to go with it. Just like the first, the meat was very succulent and crunchy which proves it's freshness. I like this dish as well cause even thought the fish was deep fried, it wasn't oily at all. 

I think, if you're either going up to or coming down from Genting, this is a nice place to stop by for a meal. Especially if you enjoy fish and would like a good meal from time to time. 

 
Supplementary Information:
Apparently some of the larger fishes are caught by the boss himself as he enjoys fishing.
