From my last year trip to Cameron, I thought this is truly a restaurant worth visiting. Our initial plan was to have steamboat at this highly popular steamboat restaurant (through some self-advertising that I saw) via internet. However, we came across a local, and was told, the food at that restaurant was over-rated, and instead, we were recommended to go 'Oldies & Goodies'...
Immortality soup - Oh, I wish I could live forever after drinking this.
Yes, so we did try the steamboat with the immorality soup. The portion look a lot for 3 pax, and of course, its because this big plate was filled up with lotsa of vege at the bottom (you find find very generous portion of vege in steamboats in Cameron, due to their many fresh vege available here). This plate is a combination of frozen 'goodies', and fresh stuff like prawns.
I can't remember fully now, but I remember there were pumpkin and lots of others ingredients used in the soup base.
Well, overall, I think one can skip their steamboat (unless one would really like to have hot soups from steamboat, in the cold weather of Cameron Highlands).
I find the dishes we ordered tasted excellent, and within very reasonable price.
Just look at how appetizing this plate of fried rice. Using lots of vege, mushroom, prawns, crabsticks, this plate of rice was filled with lots of gravy and came really hot, and just so yummy.
The other specialty is the pumpkin that were fried, and then coated with this really tasty, with slight sweetish taste. It gives just the right feeling as you bite it, as this was crispy on the sides, while the pumpkin remained soft and tasty on the inside. However, it was a little salty when we tasted it. Trust this would go well with white rice.
This plate of fried noodle was fried so well, and we just love the sauce used in this.
This definitely will be the restaurant that I will visit again, and recommend to friends heading to Cameron Highlands.
