Restoran Uli @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

Restoran Uli is one of those restaurants that is close to my heart and it's solely because of the chef. As a little boy, I was introduced to Chinese food through this guy's cooking when he was based in Sin Hoong Hin Restaurant which used to be the Chinese restaurant in Tanjung Malim. Sadly, that restaurant is history today after the premature death of the owner due to kidney failure. With that, this chef had gone to the UK and worked there for almost two decades and had come back to Malaysia and opened this restaurant about a year and a half back. 

The Restaurant In Taman Intan Setia, Tanjung Malim
This restaurant is located right at the end of Jalan Intan Setia 1, Taman Intan Setia which is along the old trunk road heading up north. Since there are many new Chinese restaurants now, business can be seasonal, some days very good and some days quiet and today was one such evening where there were just a handful of customers. Another reason why I like coming here is because we get to meet many old timers, people that used to frequent the old Sin Hoong Hin then. 

The menu is simple and rather limited. Don't look for exotic seafood here, you would not get them. In fact, even items like squid and large shrimps are not available here. I did ask him once and his reply was there aren't many who ask for those and it's just not practical for him to stock on them as it's expensive and tends to spoil rather quickly. That surely makes sense. Nevertheless, he does have some good dishes that we all enjoy. 

Tofu With Minced Meat @ RM 12.00

Dried Chili Chicken @ RM 14.00
The Tofu with Minced Meat was good. The only setback is that he doesn't have the sizzling version. If that would have been there, then it would have been way better. As for me, I would rate this 8/10. The Dried Chili Chicken was good. Lot's of sauces, dried chili, onions and spring onions were used and it tasted great. I shall rate this at 9/10. 

Steamed Fish With Ginger @ RM 21.00

Sambal Petai with Shrimps @ RM 12.00
The Steamed Fish with Ginger was nice. The gingery taste did not overpower the dish and neither did the soy sauce. It was a perfect balance of flavours. I would rate this at 8/10. This Sambal Petai with shrimps was awesome. He had used larger Petai's for the dish and was generous with the amount of Belacan used. The only setback would be the overuse of oil. Otherwise, it tasted great and I would rate this at 9/10. 

Bill For The Day
Generally, the food is good here and you can be confident with the consistency of taste. I find their prices to be reasonable as well. In fact, there are many Chinese families that I know of who come here on a daily basis for their dinner. If you're not looking for those exotic dishes and high end seafood, then this is a good Chinese restaurant to visit.
