Memorable Getaway: Bukit Tinggi @ Pahang

The thing I love most about going on vacation is that I get to leave behind any kind of schedule. When I'm on vacation, there is no schedule.

BLUE sky & GREEN nature
Beautiful, quiet, and serene -- this is how I feel when I indulge myself in a wonderful natural.

A Japanese restaurant nestled within the tranquility of million years old rainforest serving an extensive menu.

Food Foundry @ Petaling Jaya Section 17

For affordable Western food and a cosy ambience, I would recommend you this restaurant -- Food Foundry in Petaling Jaya. 

However, it is located in a rather unsophisticated place, specifically at the base of a low-cost apartment block. I guess this is probably why they can keep their price reasonable.

At first, we planned to have dinner at MyBurger Lab (Seapark) but there was so crowded. So, we shifted to another place where we could sit down to enjoy delicious food and have small talk.

Here they serve a wide range of affordably priced Western as well as Asian food. I ordered the Cajun Chicken Burger -- grilled chicken breast marinated in Cajun spices served with a side of coleslaw and french fries. As usual, the portion was a bit of too big for me, that's why i couldn't finish it.

For dessert, we tried the house specialty, the Mille Crepe. Its many layers of crepe and cream was nice -- simple, refreshing and not too sweet. But the Mango flavour Mille Crepe was a bit of a let-down, though.
