Got lost when trying to look for this restaurant last week. Once one saw the BHP on the far right, on the road heading to Bentong, one has to quickly look out for a turning on the left hand side, to get into this area. We went on straight, for a ride, and had to U-turn back.
Pacino being a Bentong boy recommended me Restoran Yu Kan. And were relief, when spotted this restaurant, directly opposite BHP.
We badly needed to fill our stomach by the time we were seated.
Having pond behind the restaurant area, Yu Kan is known for its fresh talapia fish. We opted for the claypot fish. It was piping hot when served, and true to what its known for, it was really fresh, and came with thick fragrant gravy.
We also liked the homemade beancurd topped with lots of minced pork. Slight crispiness on the outside, this homemade beancurd came in a whole big piece.
The 'young' watercress vege known as 1 of the oldest known leaf vege consumed by human beings were stir fried with garlic, and it was real crunchy to bite.
After a search from 'Wikipedia', found that watercress claims many benefits which acts as stimulant, source of phythochemicals, antioxidants, digestive, and cancer suppressing properties, among others.
This thinly sliced pork was fried till extremely hard and crunchy. Coated with honey, it added much flavor to the pork. Real fragrant, but I still prefer the one served at Chuan Kie at Goh Tong Jaya. My earlier post of the same dish ordered.
We also ordered the mushroom with fish paste. This was a clear plate of vege, but we didn't really liked this, due to the slight bitterness in the mushroom.
