Restoran Fung Seng Lao, Kuala Lipis, Pahang


Note (23 Dec 2009): Sorry guys, technical error on the pics. Need to redo but no time now. The pics are available here FIXED!!! Yay photos can be viewed now!

We hurried over to Restoran Fung Seng Lao at the appointed time. Lucky for the early birds as we managed to caught the full sized Capon chicken (yim kai). Eeeeek so hungry when I was taking the pics, the chicken broth smelt soooo nice! Yeah the skin is of natural yellow, I did not tweak the pics!!! Mr Ong urged us to try the chicken innards, he said they're safe to be eaten since no growth hormones, antibiotics or vaccines were used. Another must eat is the skin! Yeah I know, they're good stuff :p based on my Chef Tam experience!

Steamed Capon Chicken

When the rest arrived, so did the steamed yim kai (sorry no price as the chicken is courtesy of Sunhine). The texture is tougher than the one we tried at Chef Tam due to the different type of chicken. This one is the Ma Lai Kai (village free range chicken) variety which explained why it was tougher but still smooth. The skin texture is slightly different too.

There was a plate of taugeh that came with the chicken. Fat and crunchy.


The stir-fried sai to fish paste with ginger and spring onion (RM35) came next. No doubt the fish is fresh but we find them not as bouncy. Cumi and I suspected they've added too much flour in the fish paste.

We were served a rather special stir-fried wild boar with ginger and spring onion (RM12). Wild boar are usually stew ala curry with strong spices due to it gamey and tough texture. No wonder Gerald kept asking us if we want to buy any of the meat :p The wild boar meat here is uber tender! Superb when quickly stir fried. I would declare, this is the best dish of the day!

The next wild boar dish is of the curry variety (RM12). Didn't like this as I find the curry powder overwhelmed the dish. For this, I preferred the one at Keong Kei Poh Ban.

Steamed river patin was "sponsored" by Thule Leo. Thanks so much as the fish is sweet, no muddy taste at all and it's huge! Despite the size, the chef managed to steam this to perfection.

A plate of roast duck (RM20) arrived but not many takers as we were busy with the fish. I had one piece and it tasted like it was deep fried, can't beat KL's roast duck :p

Not one but two plates of green vegetables made it to the table. The stir fried sambal belachan sweet potato shoots (RM10) lacked the wok hei and ommph but the stir fried four angle beans were fantastic so much so that a lil monkey came over and finish off our plate. It's fried with dried shrimp bits, fantastic I tell ya.

A large plate of Jade tofu (RM25) was served. The block of tofu contained wheatgrass juice hence the greenish tinge. Hehe we thought it was pandan when it arrived :p In the middle of the tofu there is an egg cracked over and served with a light gravy with some carrots, snow peas and seafood. We were trying to decipher and describe the texture of the tofu but none of us came close until Lyrical Lemongrass mentioned pudding! Yeah that's the word.

The last that arrived was the butter ribs (RM22) which is tender but a bit jelak to me since I was very full already.

Whoa we ate an 11-course lunch!!! Very full filling. There were 17 adults in total and each of us just paid RM24, excluding the cost of fish and yim kai as we were charged the cooking fees only.

Cumi says gimme the money

Lastly we would like to thank Mr Ong, Gerald, Chef Marinus, Thule Leo and everyone at Sunshine Farm for this wonderful trip and lunch!
