havent found anything particularly "memorable". most are over rated and over expensive.

what kinda food are you looking for anyway?

..what kinda food are you looking for anyway?Simple Chinese food is good. Not 5 star but the 'tai chow' variety should suffice. :)

In fraser's hill, nothing much to eat. there is a average nasi lemak with ayam goreng at the mosque compound. If you are coming down, you may plan to have lunch in Slim River. To get there, go to the NS highway and exit Slim River. after the toll , turn left and about 500m , there is a coffeeshop ( corner ) on the right., beside a new shop row of shophouse. This restraunt looks like a normal coffeeeshop ( no aircond ) but they serve perak river catch of the day. If you are lucky, you may get river udang galah, ikan tapah,pak sow khoon, jelawat etc. ,the price is reasonable and you will not forget the place after the visit. Do not go to the aircondition one, it is a competitor and expensive. Have a good trip.

Pine Resort restaurant should fit the bill. It is one of the better ones , cost wise n taste. At the very least you know how much it'll cost you at the time of your order as it is stated in the menu. Rice comes in a pot and not individual plate. Free air suam to boot.

Best would be DIY steamboat on the balcony savoring the cool crisp fresh air together.....

Was slaughtered quite a number of times till finding out that pine can offer better....:mad:

For breakfast ...usually go to the stall beside the mosque .
Take a walk through the jungle trail in the morning , beside the golf course and would exit right there . Have a hot cuppa + nasi lemak , then take another leisurely walk around town ...then back to wherever you stay.

Fabe18, my last visit was janaury 2009. The chinese restraunt and all the malay stalls beside the clock tower is gone. The place is under renovation.
Even the lodge at the base is under renovation. I am not sure if it is completed. The golf course clubhouse is deserted. So CCY suggestion is good, maybe you should buy a DIY disposable barbeque set and bring some ham, sausages, vegs and enjoy at the barbeque pits available. At that time it was a weekend and some traders brought some catering malay food and sells there. ( don't try it is not my taste )

Weekdays the place is deserted and you can imagine the food is prepared for weekends only.However, the weather is 20degrees and steam boat and barbeque is the best option.

I was there last month, there is one chinese stall next to the lodge which still was under renovation nearing completion... Didn't eat there though..

Went in a group with the Mazda MX5 club group.. Had lunch and tea in the Ye Olde Smokehouse. Dinner was at Shahzan Inn, steamboat dinner, nothing great..
