Tong Nam Bee @ Raub, Pahang

This morning, we head out in search of another good place to have breakfast in Raub town. Many of the places were closed due to the holidays and fortunately, one of those famous Coffee Shops were open. There was no need for me to check on Foursquare how good this place is. The queue outside the restaurant told it all. 

Tong Nam Bee Located Along Jalan Tun Razak

Customers Waiting For Tables

Outdoor Seating
This seems to be a place that has been around for a very long time and is a famous breakfast place among the locals. We were here at around 11 am and even then, the queue was so long. We had to wait in line for almost 30 minutes and the line behind me seemed to be never ending. Finally, after getting ourselves a table, we ordered and the lady boss had forewarned us that it is going to take a very long time. What they sell is rather simple. The famous item here is toast bread with butter and kaya and their local coffee. There are two other stalls here and they too seemed to be quite famous. She had informed us to have something from the other stalls too since her toast is going to take a very long time and we did exactly that. 

Local Coffee @ RM 1.80

Toast with Butter & Kaya @RM 3.00 per set
The coffee came almost right away but the toast set was only sent to us after 30 minutes. Luckily we did have some other food items here which we had ordered from the other two stalls. Their Local Coffee was awesome. Truly authentic Hainanese stuff and I would definitely give it 9/10. Their Toast was another absolute treat. It was crisp yet soft an their homemade Kaya was just awesome. The butter was good too. Now I understand why this place is so famous. I would definitely rate their toast set at 10/10. 

Wild Boar Curry @ RM 5.00

Chee Cheong Fun @ RM 6.00
Their Wild Boar Curry is from another stall that is located on the right side of the shop, near the entrance. This stall only sells plain white rice with a choice of either Wild Boar Curry or Chicken Curry.We did not go for the rice since we had ordered some plain bread as well and that Wild Boar Curry along cost us RM 5.00 . The curry came with lots of potatoes and lean meat. Slightly on the oily side but taste wise, the curry was drinkable. It was really good so much so, we ended up ordering another one. And the best part was by 11.45, she was sold out. Definitely a good dish to try here and my rating for this shall be 9/10. The Chee Cheong Fun stall is also located close to the entrance but she is on the left side. She only serves in Tupperware's as she avoids washing plates. And you don't get to choose the items, it's pretty much a standard set and it priced at RM 6.00 . Another good one and the sauces were delicious. My rating for this shall be 8/10. 

For some excellent Chinese breakfast in Raub, I would definitely recommend Tong Nam Bee. Their Coffee and Toast is simply out of this world and their toast set comes with some really amazing butter and Kaya. You might also want to try the other stall located on the right side of the restaurant that sells curries with rice. You could just go for the curry and try it with some bread. Amazingly good! If you're here during the weekends, please be prepared to either come very early or else, be prepared to wait in line.
