Restoran Foon Lock-2 Visit..

After a satisfying and delicious meal at Restoran Foon Lock, on our first visit in September, we decided on a revisit with a group of friends to sample their food again.

The 45 minutes drive on the highway was a breeze on a Sunday afternoon.

We were looking forward to wild frogs,
there were none because of the rainy season !!

Luckily, fresh river prawns and Ikan Tapah were available.

After the lunch, we bought fruits like duku langsat, pulasan, mangosteen and the famous Bentong ginger from two stalls outside the restaurant.

Parking is available in front and at the back of the restaurant.

The shop front.

Steamed Lim Yee (Ikan Tapah) (700 gm) with good grade soy sauce and garnished with chopped ginger and cilantro-meat was smooth and fine textured-RM49/.

Stir fried Kwai Tau Mui (baby long bean) with deep fried shrimp-fresh, delicate and crunchy-Rm9/.

Stir fried fresh farmed mushroom with fish paste, sweet tasting pea bean and sliced carrot-a well balanced dish-Rm15/.

Drunken Chicken with sliced ginger-the free range chicken meat was firm and muscled but the wine broth was too diluted-"no kick"-Rm18/

Steamed river prawn (1.6 kg) with egg white, Chinese wine, and garnished with toothpick ginger and sprigs of cilantro-was fresh, juicy and succulent except for one which was "suspect"-Rm104/.

Hokkien fried Tung Hoon (mung bean noddle) was simple with some egg, beansprout and strips of chicken meat-mediocre-Rm9/.

Fruits Galore.


Red and yellow bananas.


Duku langsat.

Bentong Ginger.

Total bill:RM217/
Location:84, Kg Bukit Tinggi,
Bentong, Pahang.

Red bananas? That's interesting.. I don't think I've tried it before, how does it taste?

next time try Restoran Bukit Tinggi BBQ behind BHP ok??? The food is amazing and different from other restaurants there.. but the owner is a bit eccentric though!
In Foon Lock.. worth trying is their sweet & sour pork + steamed fish. BUt I reckon Loong Sing's version of steamed fish is better (the restaurant is just located nearby)

CUMI & CIKI said...

Selba-plump, soft and sweeter.
tgule a.k.a thule-thanks, have tried 126 and Loong Seng too- will try B Tinngi BBQ next time.
Duckie-it's actually rice wine chicken.
C&CIKI-no doubt about it!
