Restoran Fu Man @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

Besides Ga Onn Restaurant and Garden Seafood, Restoran Fu Man is another favourite restaurant among the locals in Tanjung Malim, Perak. This restaurant is located in Taman Universiti which is along the old state road heading towards Kuala Lumpur. It's been a while since we came here. If I am not mistaken, the last time I was here was in November last year. Yes, that long it has been and for a change, we decided to do lunch here today. Actually, the local Chinese prefer this restaurant more than Ga Onn and as such, the place is full house most of the time. Sometimes, you'd have to make prior reservations to get a table. 

Interior Of The Restaurant
It was pass 2 pm when we arrived and fortunately, it was a little relaxed as most patrons had left. Most days, they also get quite a number of tourist buses dropping by and that should give you an indication as to how good their business is. Food is good here, no doubt about it and they have a number of signature dishes as well which are loved by many. As for today, we won't be doing any one of those signature dishes as those would require a larger number of people and here we are just the four of us. So, just some usual dishes that we love at this restaurant. The service here is very quick and all their staffs move around so quickly attending to customers needs. I guess they are so used to running full house most of the time.

Claypot Beancurd @ RM 13.00
Instead of the usual Sizzling Tofu and Mapo Tofu, we decided to go for this Claypot Tofu with vegetables which was priced at RM 13.00 . For the price, the portion was good and the dish came with an assortment of vegetables, mushrooms, sliced pork and some shrimps. Taste was good and that starchy broth went very well with rice. A good dish I would say and would give this a 8/10. 

Kangkung Belacan @ RM 10.00
Kangkung Belacan is a staple dish that we have to order every time we eat out at a Chinese restaurant. Somehow, I didn't quite like the preparation here and felt that the one that we get at Ga Onn Restaurant, is far superior.  The reason, was the lack of 'belacan' and dried shrimps. Otherwise, it was decent. I would give this a 6/10 only. 

Steamed Egg @ RM 8.00
This Steamed Egg was really nice. I loved the soft silky texture of the egg which was done rightly and that sour and salty sauce lifted the creamy taste and gave it a good blend of flavours. Another good one to have at this restaurant and I would rate this at 8/10. 

Steamed Fish with Ginger @ RM 30.00
Steamed Tilapia Fish with ginger. This is one of those dishes that I love here. It's just amazing how they prepare them without skimping on the ingredients. Just look at the amount of ginger used. The fish was steamed and topped with ginger and bird eye chili's. The generous topping of ginger seeped in well into the fish meat and that gave it an all rounded taste. Super good it was and for this style of preparation, these guys are the best in town. It would be a shame if I rate this anything less than a perfect 10/10. 

Sweet & Sour Prawns @ RM 20.00
These Sweet & Sour Prawns were delicious as well but I felt that the price was a little too high. There's only eight prawns there and that too those small ones. The price may be right for KL but definitely not for TM. Price aside, I have no other complaints and taste wise, it was really good. I would give this a 8/10 as well. 

With an exception to the Kangkung Belacan, the rest of the dishes were just awesome. Overall a good lunch and my tummy was happy. Reasonable prices except for the last dish, good food and excellent customer service. Definitely a place that I would recommend in Tanjung Malim.
