Restoran Ga Onn @ Tanjung Malim, Perak
Restoran Ga Onn is one of my favourite Chinese Restaurants in Tanjung Malim, Perak. I have been a loyal customer for over 15 years now. This used to be a place where we would head at least once weekly for our Sunday family lunch until recently, when we started trying out other new places that have opened up in recent times. Nevertheless, we still do visit them at least once a month. One of the many reasons for this loyalty is simply the good food that we get here along with the reasonable prices and the lovely hospitality. This restaurant is located in Taman Anggerik Desa, right opposite the Hindu Temple in town.
Sizzling Tofu with Minced Meat
The Sizzling Tofu was done excellently. No complaints on this dish. Lovely Japanese Tofu were cooked in a deep and dark broth along with some minced pork and with some egg at the base. If you do not eat pork, please inform them and they would substitute this with chicken. I would rate this at 9/10 .
One of our all time favourite dish here. Though it may seem like a little, it was a heap of spinach and when it was spread over the platter, it very much covered most of it and I was happy with the portion.Very fresh Kang Kung used and they were lavish with the Belacan and that gave it just the perfect flavours. Taste wise, it was quite good too. I would rate this at 9/10 .
Deep Fried Fish with Soy Sauce & Vinegar
I think that they had done a good job with the fish to the best of their ability. Of course I know that those Seafood restaurants in town would have fared better, nevertheless I was still happy with this preparation. In fact, everyone loved it! The fish was very crunchy and that vinegar based sauce went just perfectly. I would rate this preparation at 8/10 .
Deep Fried Prawns
Well, nothing to complain taste wise but the portion seems to be getting smaller and smaller over the years. In fact, I had mentioned this to the lady boss and she acknowledged the fact that this has been happening. Her reasoning is that they had not increased the prices but had to sustain somehow and this is the only way. Well, seems reasonable to me. Otherwise, taste wise it was good and I would give this 8/10.
We dine at this restaurant at least once a week and the food has always been consistent. This is one of those places where you could say that the food is great, the price is cheap and the service is just excellent. What more would one want from a restaurant. Definitely a great place to drop by for a good meal.
