Restaurant Shang Kee @ Ulu Yam

It was a wonderful weekend of relaxing and fun with family members and friends. We spent a great deal of our precious time at Fraser's Hill. The bungalow we stayed in was superb and the whole atmosphere was just amazing. How I wished I could own such a lovely there. Weather was superb too not too hot and was quite breezy. Fantastic. This was what I was looking for.

Ah! well.... good things have to end somehow. It was time for all of us to make our journey back to KL. It is always a sad thing to do ~ reality bites don't they. But before really heading back towards KL we decided to make our way to Ulu Yam for a good meal as Ulu Yam is famous for it's 'Loh Mee'.

Lucky for us my father in law knows the way to the best restaurant in Ulu Yam for this delicacy. He was our walking GPS for the day and we were all so delighted with it's performance. Chuckle. There were so many so called famous restaurant dishing out this delicacy but we choose to head towards this restaurant by the name of 'Restoran Shang Kee'.

Surprised! Surprised! This place was packed when we arrived and blimey it was close to 4pm. Simply just cannot believed it. Most of the patrons are from KL just like us after a lovely weekend away from the busy KL life.

There is nothing to shout about this restaurant. It's just like any other ordinary restaurant but the only extraordinary thing about this place is it's 'Loh Mee'.

Loh Mee @ RM16.00
Before this lovely bowl was brought to us I could smell it's aroma from mile away. It looks marvelous and all of us wanted a go at it! Some liked it with some vinegar and some, like myself, do better without it. Yummy yummy.... good good ..... continue eating, continue eating ..... burp! burp! It was different from those I had back in PJ or KL. Seriously, it does taste Ulu Yam in it and that's why it's such a hit there. It's a little difficult for me to explain the different but do make a date with them if you really wanted to know how it tastes like.

Porkie Bites
This porkie bites sure does smells good and tastes good but it was over fried resulting to most of us a visit to a denture doctor. It was delicious not doubt but it was hard to bite too. And not to forget oily which is a big no-no.

Fried Noodle with Siew Yook
Since there was so many of us we decided to order another plate of noodle just to fill up the half filled bellies still longing for more food. I don't really remember the special name given for this plate of noodle but it does taste good. Again it was rather oily but I reckon this is a norm for Malaysian Chinese cooking. Fabulous and is equally as good as their famous 'Loh Mee'.

Delicious Saito Fish Cake @ RM16.00
Delicious Saito Fu Zok  @ RM16.00
Both this fish cake and fu zok which is made from saito fish is truly out of this world. It tastes really delicious and from the first bite I could still feel the saito fish meat to be very springy which scores full marks. And both of them are supposedly the 'chiew pai' dish.

Conclusion : Loh mee is superb including the other fried noodle. Fu zok and fish cake is out of this world which is a must. A tad too oily for my liking and portion is just so-so. Rather expensive from my point of view. Service sucks but you still get food served on the table. LOL. A 3/5.
