Dinner at Tanjong Malim

We stopped by Tanjong Malim recently on the way to Kuala Lumpur and had dinner in this Son Wun Nam Restaurant.  Tanjong Malim is a small town, situated on the boundary between Perak state and Selangor state in West Malaysia.
We ordered  3 dishes as there were only 3 of us and what struck me was the dishes were served on rather 'authentic', unchipped porcelain plates instead of melamine plates which are widely used in some restaurants.


The restaurant's signature dish  ......'cooked' Garoupa fish fillet instead of steamed.  Actually, couldn't make out the difference whether it's 'cooked' or 'steamed'.  Quite a generous serving of fish fillet, tasted fresh and good.  Cost RM16.00


'Kau Yoke' ....... Braised pork belly with yam, not too bad, except that the pork belly was a bit fatty.  
 Cost RM15.00


Stir fry 'Kai Lan' or Mustard greens with garlic and oyster sauce  ....  not too oily but crunchy. 
Cost RM7.00

The total cost of the meal with rice and tea came to RM44.00 which was quite reasonable.

I caught the attention of the people in the restaurant while I was clicking away.  Curious, the chef and kitchen hands came out to have a look.  They must be thinking that I may want to 'clone' their dishes or I'm a reporter for some newsapaper!

  2. Only RM44.00 for 3 dishes? So cheap!
    In Singapore the dish of fish will cost at least S$20 plus.

  3. It is funny how we are being perceived by others. Must find it strange that we are taking photos of food.
    A few of the establishments here are very aware that we are bloggers. Some are happy and some not so.
