Restoran Ah Tok Chinese & Western Food @ Raub, Pahang
One of the very famous Chinese Restaurants in Raub is Restoran Ah Tok. This restaurant is quite famous for it's Hainanese Chicken Chop as well as some Grilled Fish dishes. It was through Foursquare that I came to know about this restaurant. Since the recommendations seemed really good, we decided to drop by for dinner.
Restoran Ah Tok Located Along Jalan Dato Abdullah
We were here at around 10 pm for a late dinner and the place was still buzzing with crowd. One of the reasons is definitely the Chinese New Year holidays and most locals would have come back and many were doing their reunion dinners here. Luckily, we managed to get a table the moment we arrived. Right after us, people were waiting in line for tables and they event went to the extent of placing tables by the side of the road. That is the kind of crowd that this restaurant draws Besides the food, this place is also a famous watering hole.
They had a pretty good offering on their menu and you might not believe me, it took us so much effort to even get someone's attention so that they could bring us the menu. Everyone was so busy and dishes were coming out from the kitchen like mass production. I am sure the cooks would have been totally drained by the end of that evening. Prices were on the high side but still, the crowd was overwhelming. We ordered their Hainanese Chicken Chop and the lady boss had warned us that it would take a while, at least 40 minutes. It's good that she had forewarned us and since we were in no rush, we agreed. And true enough, we only got our food after a 45 minute wait.
Hainanese Chicken Chop @ RM 17.00
Their Hainanese Chicken Chop is fried and topped with tomato puree, peas and carrots. On the sides, you have some potato wedges, an omelette and some cucumbers & tomatoes. For the price, the portion was good. Taste wise, I enjoyed the crispy chicken and the sauce complimented it well. The fries were good too. Yes, this is definitely a restaurant that I would recommend trying in Raub. My rating for this dish shall be 8/10.
Address: PT 6291, Jalan Dato Abdullah, 27600 Raub, Pahang.
