Several weeks ago when the sky in KL was enveloped with haze, we decided to take a short trip to Fraser’s hill. On the way back down, we took the long route and somehow ended up near the exit of Tanjung Malim, and since we were already there, I thought we might as well stop by Fu Man restaurant for dinner before heading back to the city.

Fu Man is located just a few minutes away from the Tanjung Malim highway exit. If you’re heading there on a weekends, be sure to call ahead and book your table. We didn’t, but was lucky enough to get a table located at the alleyway by the side of the restaurant, everything indoor was already fully booked.

We let the server recommend us a few signature dishes for the two of us, and I’m glad to report that all three dishes were spot on.

The first dish was the fried salted pork belly (RM 18), served with home-made chilli sauce as well as a sweetish sauce with raw garlic. The pork was crispy on the outside and soft within, full of flavour and definitely a delight to eat. I reckon it’ll make excellent beer food too.

Next up was the home-made steamed stuffed tofu (RM 6). The combination of minced pork and that extra soft tofu went very well with steamed rice. I wish someone would make yong tau foo that tastes exactly like this.

Naturally, our final dish was green, and it came in the form of “choi sum flower”, or basically a crunchier and juicier version of your normal “choi sum”, we enjoyed this too. They’re a lot less fibery and much easier to munch.

RM 39 for the two of us, great value

Dinner costs us RM 39 in total for two person, a great value you won’t likely find in the city. If you’re looking for a great meal and won’t mind driving some 70-80 KM up north, be sure to check out this place.
