Restoran Makanan Mushroom Farm, Genting
When ever I'm up at Genting, I'll have to crack my head for food..
Lots of food selection no doubt, but mostly are fast food, franchised or microwaved food. Not much satisfaction I get from those..
We were glad to stumble upon this restaurant a few years back, when we were stopping over to buy some fresh mushrooms..
You get the usual tai chow at this restaurant, but since it's cool up in Genting, hence it's pretty good to have piping hot food..
One of their famed dish is the deep fried "standing" tilapia. Deep fried cooked in nai yau (buttered) style, the fish is deboned and deep fried. The fish slices are deep fried and cooked with eggs, butter, brid eyes chillies and curry leaves. I do feel it does not taste as good as the last time I had it..this time, the fish slices are sliced a tad thin, and slightly over fried....Taste wise, is still pretty good.
Gary and Candy absolutely loves the pig belly soup, which is excellent on a cold day.If you want to try this, you'd better come during lunch as it's usually sold off by dinner time. The soup, which is boiling hot, is served with plenty of sliced pig belly , white fungus, wolfberries (kei zhi) and white pepper. Aromatic, spicy and warm hits you at the same time. It feels so good and the warm slowly seeps all over our bodies.. This soup is so 'heaty' that we dont feel cold at all after a while (yeah, we had to peel of some of our clothes..;p)
We tried other dishes which was just mediocre..such as the steamed chicken. The sizzling tau foo was nothing to shout about. In fact, it's on the bland side...
The mixed stir fried mushroom was again mediocre..
Alas, the vegetables..We had the gwai dao mui (cross between long beans and french beans?) which I find it really good. It had the right crunch to it, the vegs was uber sweet and was stir fried to the right wok hei..yums..
Though most of the dishes turned out to be mediocre (I was rather surprised as it tasted better last year), we still managed to wiped everything clean....Either we're gluttons or we're freaking gluttons..take your pick..hehe. Total bill was RM190.
