Our Expensive & Cheap Food in Cameron Highland

Prior to our trip to Cameron Highland, we did some Googling here and there to find about foods in Cameron Highland. Unfortunately, our finding was hopeless as we didn't get so much clues about where to head for good foods on the highland.

From Tapah, we stopped at Brinchang for lunch at 12pm while waiting for our hotel's check in time at 3.00pm. After making big round at the centre of Brinchang town, we found out that most of the restaurants here served Steam Boat for their customers. Perhaps, the cool weather on the highland make people prefer to have hot dishes instead of fried foods.

Back to the story about our lunch, we went to a Chinese restaurant here and instead of ordering hot pot which we think its pricey at RM40 for 2 person, we chose to have rice with side dishes instead. We ordered a serving of vegetable, chicken and rice for 2 person. Guest what! Its RM35 including 1 serving of Chinese Tea. This is what I called as "highland price is always high".

Other than steam boat, there are a lot of Indian and Mamak restaurant for you to choose in town. I think, the high population of Malaysian Indian and South Indian migration who work at estates on highland lead for the existing of those restaurants. Optionally, there are still numbers of Malay and western foods restaurants in Tanah Rata and Brinchang town too. 

Oh ya! On the second day, I found something really cheap and delicious at the main street of Tanah Rata. Its a Chinese Restaurant which serving noodles and other ala carte food. This noodle is very simple which consisted of clear water soup, choice of noodles, choices of fish cakes and chili with garlic on the side. Very simple, acceptable portion, delicious and only cost us RM4.00 for each bowl of noodle. This is the winning food during my trip in Cameron Highland after the expensive lunch upon our arrival, terrible hotel foods which I will share later.
