Cameron Highlands 2011: Uncle Chow Kopitiam & Hatter's Cafe & Bakerie

Uncle Chow Kopitiam

We just couldn't leave Cameron Highlands without a pitstop at Uncle Chow Kopitiam. We have been here several times and each time we're here, Uncle and Aunty Chow treat us like old friends. Maybe it's nice to meet up KLites once in a while hahaha.

On our way back this trip, we came here to have lunch even though we were still stuffed from our luxurious breakfast at Cameron Highlands Resort. We really had a long long lunch here as after our meal, it was raining heavily that we waited out. We moved from the patio to the inside of the shoplot as the wind got so strong that the whole patio was wet. Uncle Chow was lamenting that it was rather odd to rain this heavy for the past few days.

Capt'n Hook had a bowl of hot steaming Curry Laksa (RM8.90) just like what he had the previous visit, well not that he will remember what he had ordered hehe. Loved the creamy curry infused coconut milk broth with loads of plump beansprouts, long beans, tofu puffs, fishcake slices, fish balls and chicken. He literally emptied the entire bowl until we can see the bottom of the bowl!

BoiBoi's standard order of Fried Koay Teow (RM6.00) which has the wok hei strangely even cooked on a range cooker! This is a slightly wettish style koay teow and I liked how the egg retained it's omelette shape which I have been trying very hard to achieve back home.

I've heard their Assam Laksa (RM8.90) is good so that's what I had. The spicy soup is piquant so much so that I emptied my bowl as well heh :p I would like it to be slightly thicker though which means more mashed up fish meat.

They are not stingy with their ingredients as you know that is why we loved the honey lemon drink. From the colour, can you tell how much honey there is inside?

Capn't Hook would never leave a place that serves Bubur Cha Cha (RM3.50) without ordering one. We know their bubur cha cha would not let us down since we have them before. The fresh coconut milk is nice and thick with lots of soft pieces of yam and sweet potatoes.

While you're here, do drop by Hatter's Cafe & Bakerie to pick up some breads, buns and chocolates! Btw, Normah made one of the best chocolate fudge cake! Capt'n Hook ordered one for our birthday and our young foodie BoiBoi preferred Aunty Normah's cake as compared to the one made by Cameron Highlands Resort! Since the cake is only made upon order, so do ring her up if you fancy some nice fudgy chocolate cake while you're in Cameron Highlands.

Kindly excuse for the "mini landslide" as we have collected the cake in the afternoon and thinking that it was cold enough we did not ask the hotel to keep it in the fridge :p
