Remember 126 @ Bukit Tinggi, Bentong Pahang
It was lunch time while we were on our way to KL, and therefore we made a stop in Bukit Tinggi area for quick lunch. For some reasons, Jenn really likes his particular restaurant as compared to the other restaurants that we'd been to in this area. I attribute this to the spaciousness of the carpark as well as the restaurant (not too hot and stuffy), the clean toilets, and also the good food.
They would always promote the dragonfruit enzime by giving you free samples to try. If I'm not mistaken, it costs about RM80++ per bottle of the enzime. While I think that it was quite delicious, I didn't buy.
Stir fried baby water crest - the veggie was fresh as usual with heaps of chopped garlic that spread evenly all over the dish. which Jenn likes instead of crushed garlic.
Deep fried pork belly with homemade sauce - I love the crispy-ness of the meat, so crispy that I always forgot that there's a layer of fat which I always try to avoid. Generous amount of chopped onions further add to the aroma of the gravy and the meat.
Braised yee mee - both of us agreed that this dish was not up to the standard. The yee mee was very soft while the gravy was so so only.
Leo's verdict - this area is famous for river fish... and a lot of KL-ites and some as far as Johor actually made their way here just to eat the fish. The price is definitely cheaper compared to Gohtong Jaya area, where I was once slaughtered by one of the restaurants there for being so naive. They even served some watermelon slices when I asked for the bill...
