Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant @ Hulu Langat

Sawadee krap!
(means 'hello' in Thai language)

Have you ever dined at a good restaurant where they actually grow their own vegetables and have their pond to breed their own fresh fish? If you have not then this is a food post that you must go through from beginning until the end in order to find out more. Indeed, I felt happy and really honored to be invited to join the Selangorlicious Foodster Trip on the 9th of October 2011 to the Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant and I asked Kian Fai to tag along. 


The sign board along the road along Jalan Hulu Langat that you must not miss!


Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant which is located at KM4, Jalan Hulu Langat is a few kilometer distance from the Ampang Look Out Point is a restaurant that you must not miss. This restaurant serve affordable and good Thai cuisine food. The main attraction of this restaurant is that they actually grow most of the vegetables & breed own fish at the same location which at the area around the restaurant and so customers can enjoy fresh vegetables and food every single day unlike the conventional restaurant that you normally visit around the city. Don't believe me? Take a look at the pictures that I took below:

The farm that was created from scratch.

Most of the vegetables that we can get from the restaurant is freshly planted in this farm except chili. This is because the usage of chili are very high and the speed of plantation itself is not able to cater the usage for the restaurant.


A house like stall set up to sell juice and plants.


A white cockatoo at the entrance of the restaurant, to bring good wealth & fortune? :)


As we entered the restaurant, we can see the workers grilling fishes and meat.


The overview of the restaurant. It has the water village feel as the restaurant is built above a man made pond and there's plenty of fresh fishes swimming in the pond.


I bet the fishes must be really fat since the customers enjoy feeding them especially the kids.


We reach there before the exact lunch hour so this was the condition of the restaurant. Quiet and empty without customers... if I'm the owner, I'll be really sad!


But... this was the crowd at lunch hour. It was so packed and almost every tables were occupied! Though this area of the restaurant wasn't strategic but I guess they do have a lot of loyal customers that comes back every now and then. I guess I'll take back the words that I said earlier! Haha!


Fresh coconut for a heaty day.

Kerabu Chicken Feet – RM12 small / RM18 big

Mango Kerabu – RM10 small / RM15 big

There's two options for the Seafood Tom Yam.
One is red and the other one is white.


Seafood Tom Yam Red / White – RM18

Sotong Masak Pedas with Coconut Milk – RM12 small / RM22 big

Udang Goreng Cili Bawang Putih – RM15 small / RM28 big


Ketam Masak Serbuk Kari or Crab Cooked with Curry Powder – RM5.50 / 100 gram

This crab was really good and the meat was soft yet full of flavor.

Grilled Lamb – RM18 small / RM24 big

This is the Coconut Flower with Prawns (Small: RM15.00 / Big: RM20.00)
 Some of you might not tasted this before but this dish was good to eat together with rice or even as a side dish when you are having beer with friends.

Coconut flower is actually a yellow like plant and can be found on top of the coconut tree. It is edible and is good to cook together with other vegetables and meat.

Kangkung with Tao Chew – RM8 small / RM12 big

This was one of my favorite because it's healthy and crunchy!
 Fried Spinach – RM8 small / RM12 big

Fried Chicken with Kaffir Lime Leaf – RM15 small; RM20 big
As told, they plant their own kaffir lime leaf at the farm and can be seen in the pictures earlier in this post.



What? Is this Ham Yu? Salted fish? Haha...

    
This is the Salt Grilled Fish – RM3 / 100 gram.
The skin is hard and we can eat the flesh under it. Not too salty for my taste bud and the fish was indeed really fresh without any fishy smell. This is a must try! :D

Lemon Steamed Fish also priced at RM3 / 100 gram.
Full of flavor but might be too spicy for some people, just take a look at the amount of chili padi that that they use for this dish. I'll recommended this to you if you can take spicy food.



This dessert is called Look Chob, one of the tradition dessert from Thailand. Look Chob can be any kind of fruit shapes by seeing the picture above, some of the shape is looks like mini papaya, yellow apple and red hot spicy chili! The content inside of this Look Chob is actually green bean. It melts in your mouth and truly a good dessert to have after having all the spicy, salty and sour dishes.


Last but not least, we had a platter of popular Thai desserts that left us a deep impression on this restaurant. It comes with different variety of dessert which include the Look Chob, Mange Glutinous Rice, Mixed Malay Kuih and many more.

Again as mentioned before, most of the vegetables served there are planted by their own organic vegetables farm. If you are looking for good and fresh Thai food, you might want to visit Vegetable Fish Farm Thai Restaurant with family, friends or even your boyfriend/girlfriend!
