Restaurant Seong Mun, Kuala Kubu Bahru

A friend's been to this restaurant a number of times as he likes the proprietor's friendliness and the 'kampung' shack-like atmosphere. Hey, there's a cock and its brood of hens running around the restaurant floor! Ok, I seem to hear murmurs questioning the hygiene level but people, don't our usual non-airconditioned dining venues have stray dogs and cats scavanging under the tables? o.0?

That night, 8 of us had steamed white rice with:-

Wild boar rendang/curry. Definitely tops! Tender pieces sauteed in fragrant spices. If we weren't so full, we would had ordered another round! Oh, the picture includes the green vege we had. 'Choy-sum', I think.

Steamed 'pak-suk-kung' fish. It had a bit of muddy smell but the others were ok with it. Maybe my tastebuds are a bit too sensitive. =P

Deep fried calamari. A hint of curry powder and a few of us found it quite salty. (I suspect too much MSG because I was really very thirsty after the meal).

Fried froglegs. Somehow this dish appeared different to what we were used to. Instead of the usual appearance of just the thigh and leg parts, there were other 'stringy' meat mixed in. Curious, but I thought better than to question since the others were cleaning the plate in record time.

Sambal baby french beans. Again I found this a tad too salty. (Err.. too much MSG again?)

Mixed seafood claypot. Since most dishes were quite dry, the proprietor suggested a 'soupy' dish so we went with this. Not a good choice. We found it wanting - too starchy and lacked taste. Quite expensive too, RM50. Then again, this is usually pricey with all the supposedly 'exotic' ingredients involved, right?

Total bill for the dinner:-

Though it was not a superb meal but the trip was a good break from the city lights for a relaxed meal with good company. Sometimes that counts the most.

I'm lost when it comes to directions, more so when it involves trunk roads, so here's the address. If interested, dial the phone numbers.

jackson, luckily the other dishes were ok. If not it would had been even more costly including the petrol & toll!

paris beaverbanks, don't think many go there on purpose. Kind of a small laid-back town.

pablopabla, not this time. Was really there just for dinner.

Location of the restaurant is easy. It is in the KKB new village which you must pass by if you go to Bukit Fraser. It is on your left in the new village when you head towards Bkt Fraser. While in KKB, you may consider visiting Sg Selangor Dam. The dam has a few viewing spots for tourists and a Visitors Centre with a picnic/resting hut, a photo gallery and well maintained toilets. Try also drop by KKB town. It is a quaint little town where many photo kakis from KL love to walk about taking pictures.
