Hi there,

Last Saturday, the whole family went up north to Lenggong, fetching my eldest daughter from her boarding school. They finished their exams and were allowed to go back a week earlier than the others. (Just to keep the school less noisy, others are concentrating with final exams & SPM). So as usual whenever we fetch or send her there, our favorite lunch spot is the Restoran Ikan Bakar Tasik Raban. It's about 50 m from the MRSM Lenggong's traffic light junction , going up north to Grik on the right hand side. It's quite famous for those who usually drive up to Grik or to Kelantan via East-West Coast Highway.

There're quite an extensive array of ulam-ulaman and "masak kampung" dishes. My favorite are always the fried"ikan Pekasam"( a fermented fish with grounded rice), with blanched "pucuk paku" (a type of ferns leaves) and "sambal belacan with tempoyak" - this, I can't explain it in English....ha...ha...dah rasa baru tau. The "ikan bakar" is always our favorite too. And the best part is the food are cheap and simply delicious.......
