Restaurant Zheng Yeong @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

Having started in the year 1990, Restaurant Zheng Yeong has earned a name for itself. This is definitely the most upscale Chinese restaurant in Tanjung Malim and the Chef has won numerous awards over the years both locally and internationally. If you are looking for those Chinese specialty dishes, then this is the place to head to and today, they have many loyal customers who even drive up from Kuala Lumpur just for a good meal at affordable prices.

Numerous Awards Won
The Chef at this restaurant has won numerous awards over the years and these medals are framed and put up on display at the restaurant. You would also see a number of newspapers write ups on the walls. Here they do not have a menu where you could look and place orders except for those function menu's. Ordering is mostly done based on your requests and the recommendations by the lady boss.

Cutlery in Hot Water

Coca Cola @ RM 2.00

Rice (Big) @ RM 1.20 per plate
Once the ordering is done, the drinks and the cutlery placed in hot water is sent over to the table. Depending on the crowd, the dishes can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to arrive. The price of the drinks too are quite reasonable here. For example, we had the Coca Cola and it was priced at RM 2.00 per can and Chinese Tea was priced at RM 0.60 per glass, which I find to be quite reasonable.

Dried Chili Chicken @ RM 15.00

Dried Chili Chicken @ RM 15.00
The Dried Chili Chicken was good and I liked the way that it had a lot of other vegetables and cashew nuts in it. The portion was decent for the price of RM 15.00 and all the sauces were just of the right balance. I would rate this dish at 8.6/10 .

Home-Style Tofu @ RM 25.00

Home-Style Tofu @ RM 25.00
The Home-Style Tofu was excellently prepared. It had a hard deep fried skin but the inside was so soft to the extent that literally, it would melt in the mouth. Garnished with loads of mushrooms and ginger, this would definitely be a treat to Tofu lovers. I would rate this dish at 9.5/10 .

Roasted Pork @ RM 25.00

Roasted Pork @ RM 25.00
This dish came as a recommendation from the lady boss and it was good. The roasted pork were of the right chunk size and it was cooked to perfect tenderness. Slightly sweet and spicy, this dish was heavenly. I would rate this dish at 9.8/10 .

Salted Egg Prawns @ RM 30.00

Salted Egg Prawns @ RM 30.00
I would usually go for the Butter Prawns but the lady boss recommended us to try the Salted Egg Prawns and it was quite good and I was impressed with the dish. The coating of salted eggs were lavish and the adding of curry leaves and bird eye chilies into the dish was something that brought the taste to another level. Definitely a must try dish here. I would rate this dish at 9.8/10 .

Candlelight Dinner
Well, it was not really a candlelight dinner but halfway through our meal, there was a power cut in this part of town and we had to continue the meal with candles lighting up the space. There were three of us tonight and the dishes that we ordered were so good that we cleared all the plates. This is definitely a good restaurant to try out specially if you are looking for those specialty award winning dishes. Comparing the price with the other restaurants in town, this restaurant is slightly on the high side but definitely much cheaper than similar restaurants in Kuala Lumpur. Nevertheless, the food here is quite good and comes as a highly recommended restaurant.
