Seafood at Bukit Tinggi?


Seafood at Bukit Tinggi?!! Where did they get their seafood from??!! That was my first question when I got an invite to join a dinner there.. =p

I was told that the owner can be a bit rude / annoying. Make sure you order your food all at one go as you might get cheesed off when you got told off by the owner such as - "Enough-lah, so much food, you can't eat finish later!"..haha.. Yet, People still throng into this restaurant because of the somewhat special prepared dishes. We reached the restaurant by 6pm-ish. The owner was not in sight, we were approached by a lady to take our orders instead :) Pheews..

Beside this sign, there was a sign painted over with white paint on the wall that indicates the restaurant was previously a car wash centre =p

Deco in the restaurant - quite creative..Umbrellas with "who knows who's signatures" hanging on the ceiling...

Empty wine bottles on the shelves..another 'reuse, recycle" deco concept? ;)

Bring your own wine - the restaurant won't charge you corkage charges ;)
While waiting for the food..sipped on coconut drink.. but it wasn't as good as the Pandan Coconuts I drank before.. skip this! :p 

They sell pure honey too

Usually it takes quite some time for the food to be served but since we were early and there's only about three tables with diners, food was served quite fast.. probably 15-20mins? I was told previously Piggy Chel and her Monkey D has got to wait for an hour!
Tilapia Fish - the skin is crystalized with sea salt - take it off and enjoy the soft flesh.. it's fresh! It's as if it's steamed! Haven't come across this method of cooking before for fishes.. =p

A pond behind the restaurant where the live fishes swims ..
hmmm.. now I feel sad they get cooked ;( 

Half Rack of Roasted Lamb with Mint Sauce @ RM 60

While we were there, we saw another table with a group of 10-12 paxs ordered a dish of lamb leg which looked quite huge and we're tempted to try that out on our next visit!
Green Chillis cooked with Chillis - yeap that was what they call it! LOL! This tasted YUMMYLICIOUS!!! Will come back for more!

Even the grains of rice were so fluffy and fragrant (my mom actually gave a thumbs up when she visited here)

Seafood Platter / Pot - Crab, Prawns, Scallops, Clams and some other stuffs.. =p Wished there were more crabs though!
Close Up on Seafood Platter - wished there were more CRABS!!
You'll get to enjoy Soup with Oyster Mushrooms + Water Crest after the top layer of tray that "housed" the seafood platter. (The waiter will remove the soup from the double boiler and put them in a bowl it for you)
Sweetness of the seafood stock and gingers made it quite a refreshing soup! 
I've forgotten how much are the rest of the cost of each food item except for the lamb..Total bill amount up to RM 193 for 3 pax.. A bit to the pricey side but it was yummy food =D 
Time to visit casino at Genting Highlands after dinner? Hehehhehee...

Directions? (I hope I get it right! LOL!)
About an hour drive away from Kuala Lumpur / Petaling Jaya..Drive towards Genting Highland / Bukit Tinggi - After Genting Sempah Tunnel, as you got into Bukit Tinggi town, look out for the road sign "Elektrik Solar" on your left, as soon as you see it, drive slower, look out for a left turn. Turn left on the first turning and immediately take right. Drive on and turn left upon reaching another T-junction (road sign shows Bentong = to the left). Look out for a BHP Petrol Station on your right, turn in, there's a small road next to the station, the restaurant is just behind the station.
