Pahang is famous for its' Ikan patin (Pangasius Sutchi) which is a type of catfish. These fishes which inhabits the Pahang fresh water rivers have very nice texture and they are free from any mud smell. It have been quite some time since I last ate at Mee Heong which is located at Jalan Pasar, just before the bridge to Kampung Perting and next to a basketball court. You will not be able to see the sign board of this makeshift stall until you enter the restaurant.
We were very hungry after our visit to Kuala Gandah Deerland and Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary. Therefore we quickly sat down and started ordering our food. Here is the review and photos of the food we ate. The total bill for 5 adults, 1 child and 2 toddlers came up to be RM79. Nice and fresh sweet potato shoots. However it was a little salty.
This is the steamed Ikan Patin (fish) that we ordered. The flesh has very smooth texture and no mud smell at all. The patin is very fresh and tasty!
Bentong, Pahang is also famous for its' wild boar meat as it is surrounded by the tropical rain forest. We had this nice and savoury dry wild boar meat curry. Yum, yum, very tasty!
As usual, we ordred the tofu dish in claypot so that the kids can flood their rice with the gravy.
Another dish for the kids. The kulo yoke (tomato sauce deep fried meat) serving is rather generous.
