King Crab Restaurant

Every time you drive along LDP, you might be able to see a big signboard 'King Crab' opposite the Kelana Jaya LRT station. I finally have a chance to dine there with a group of friends.

The food are not bad. Matching the 'signboard', those crabs are really slightly bigger and fresh. However, the price were slightly higher.  Costing around RM 38-118 each depending on type of crab.

Tanjung Tualang Prawn, Luen Fong Restaurant

Tualang Freshwater Prawn

This Luen Fong Restaurant  (GPS N4 19.547 E101 03.348) is located in Tanjung Tualang, a small town Kinta district which is famous for its freshwater Prawns.  The prawns were priced at RM 58/kg.  We ordered 1 kg and split into 2 dishes :- Egg Steamed and Soy Sauce Pan Fried.  The taste were indeed satisfying.

 We also order other side main dishes. Other seafood dishes are also fresh and taste good.

Sarikei Prawn Noodle (Har Mien) @ Peking Restaurant

Sarikei Prawn Noodle
What you are seeing here is probably one of the best Prawn Noodle you can find in Malaysia (Locally known as 'Har Mien' by the Foochow folk). The restaurant, which is located at Jakar Town, approximately 10km from Sarikei, Sarawak is call Peking Restaurant (GPS N2 02.600 E111 29.669).  Unlike those Prawn Noodle (Har Mee) that is popular in Penang or Kuala Lumpur, this Prawn Noodle is fried before cooked in soup, giving it a smoked taste. As you can tell from the picture, the cook is very generous in their prawn portion.  All the prawns are really big and fresh (daily catch from rivers nearby).  If you are a prawn lover, you would definitely like this.  However, its quite pricey (RM16 per bowl compared to normal Noodle Soup at RM 4 without prawns).

Broga Ikan Bakar and Durian

Broga Durian Stall

Broga Durians. All the way to Broga Hill you may see a lot Broga Durian Stalls (Situated Along this Road N2 56.184 E101 54.475). You can stop by take some.  However, bear in mind that Durians are seasonal fruit.  These stalls were just a temporary hut which only available during the Durian Season ( Once or Twice in a year).

After hiking at Broga Hill, you may take lunch at 'Broga Ikan Bakar' (GPS N2 55.842 E101 55.727) which is just further down from Broga Hill, behind the Chinese temple.  As you can see from the Google Map link, this place is quite hidden and you will have to drive pass a narrow road in order to reach there.  One can easily recognize this place by seeing the fish pond which is right beside the restaurant.   There's a signboard 'Pusat Memancing Ikan Broga' in the restaurant.  The place is quite old and frankly not very comfortable.  But the dishes served were quite satisfying.  The fish are fresh and mutton are nice.  All the dishes were prepared in aluminium foil wrapping, cooked by charcoal BBQ.  Price were reasonable too.

Ban Thai Restaurant, Ulu Langat

Ban Thai Restaurant, Ulu Langat
Being located in a secluded area in Ulu Langat, getting to Ban Thai Restaurant is almost impossible for a newcomer without a GPS Navigator. The Co-ordinate for this restaurant is N3 07.781 E101 48.298.  However, the nice dining environment and its tasty dishes never fails to draw large group of customers every night.  People seems really enjoy taking their dinner at pond side away from the city.

Their signature dishes includes grilled lamb, tomyam and BBQ crab.  All in Thai Style.  And of course, not to forget, the tasty Thai dessert, Mango Stick Rice too.  From our dining experience, it seems like those cook were really doing a good job.  Dinner was served shortly and all the dishes were simply delicious!  Seafoods are fresh too (as you can see, its a fish farm itself).  When it comes to bill, we are pleased to find that all the price were reasonably charge and I would say its affordable for most of the people.  A meal of 6 dishes, enough for about 6 pax at around RM 200.  A recommended place to dine, I would say. Thumbs up.
