Phew, I admit I really neglected this blog for a very long time. I’d like to blame it on my recent business travels but then it’s really a bad excuse for myself. Anyway, I’m back for good now.. well sort of with a couple of dizziness which I’m still suffering and hope it’ll go off very soon.
I’m going to write about this particular restaurant which I went as far as 3 months’ back. I don’t know why, but this small, quaint village of Bukit Tinggi has become my favourite place for stopover whenever I’m traveling to the east coast or even the notorious gambling haven.
So we were at Foon Lock the other day for dinner and it was packed to the max. The boss was ever in his usual jovial, friendly mood and even recommended some of the specialties to us which we gleefully accepted – probably we were too tired to even think what we want to eat.
We had this simple steamed bak sou gung or catfish which was quite good and fresh. Do note that the shop offers freshwater fish which are caught wild from the river, of course they are tastier and more expensive!
This is probably the star of the night – pork with yam. It was real delicious!
We also ordered some unknown greens to balance our meal. Much to our surprise, the leaves were crunchy and we quite like it so to say!
Restaurant Foon Lock is conveniently located along the Karak highway.
Address: 84, Kg Bukit Tinggi, 28750 Bentong, Pahang.
