Broga Recreational Fishing Park @ Broga, Selangor

One of my cousins were down this afternoon and he was looking for a very different kind of place to go for lunch. That was when I had proposed Broga Recreational Fishing Park because I was certain that he had not visited this place before and as such, it would surely be an experience to remember for him. Having sold him the idea of having lunch in a farm, we head down to Broga. In terms of directions, it would be quite difficult for me to precisely say and the place is not listed in Waze as well. Most importantly, there's no internet connection as you come close to this place. So, here's the directions for you. Firstly, set your destination at University of Nottingham on your GPS and get yourself there. Once you come to Nottingham, keep driving straight all the way. Even if it seems like you're in the middle of nowhere, just keep driving and you'd come to the town of Broga. From here, continue straight and you'd see a lot of seafood restaurant on both sides of the road. Once you come to an intersection which marks the border of Selangor - Negeri Sembilan, naturally the road will turn right but you keep driving straight. There would be the famous Dato Bak Chinese Temple with a small lane on the left which says road closes at 7 pm. Take that road and keep driving. At this point, you'd loose handphone signals but don't worry. Shortly, you would once again see lots of huge Chinese farm like restaurants on both sides. Keep driving till the last restaurant which is this Broga Recreational Fishing Park which would be on your left.

All Dishes Are Cooked This Way
There's nothing fancy about this place. It's a shack like set up in the middle of the farm. All dishes are cooked in aluminium foils by being placed over charcoal fire. Nevertheless, the food is extremely good here and prices are reasonable. 

The Menu

In terms of menu, what you see above is what they have here. Pretty much it's a fish dish, mutton, vegetables and prawns cooked with a variety of sauces. The style of preparation i.e. the sauces is one that you could choose from. 

Teochew Style Fish with Spicy Soy Bean Paste @ RM 23.00

Dried Chili Mutton @ RM 16.00
All the dishes that I have shared in today's entry are their signature dishes. In terms of fish, I have tasted a variety of their preparation and my favourite is the above Teochew Style Fish with Spicy Soy Bean Paste that is priced at RM 23.00 . The fish is wonderfully cooked and the flavours goes deep into the meat. The sauce itself tastes amazingly good and my rating for this shall be 9/10. Dried Chili Mutton is also one of our favourites and I prefer this style over their Curry Mutton. It is just amazing to see how they could make the meat so tender and the accompanying ingredients just goes so well with the dish. 8/10 would be my rating for this dish. 

Mixed Vegetables @ RM 8.00

Tomyam Prawns @ RM 45.00
Their Mixed Vegetable dish is another one that I would highly recommend. The vegetable is just so tasty and they are able to bring out the natural juices making it heavenly. It's just so sweet and nice. 10/10 would be my rating for this dish. The last one that we had this afternoon is their Tomyam Prawns which was priced at RM 45.00 . Pretty decent portions but I would prefer their Rice Wine & Ginger Prawns better. This was good but not as good as that. My rating for this shall be 7/10. 

Fancy dining in the farm with freshly caught seafood cooked according to their signature styles? Then, this would be a fantastic place for your to visit. Despite being in Broga which is a 'Grilled Fish' heaven, it's not too far a drive from Kuala Lumpur. Prices have gone up but I would still consider them a good bargain compared to the city. Food is definitely good. If you have not been here yet, then it's totally worth the drive ad experience.
