After our short visit to Bukit Tinggi resort, it was high time for lunch! We drove back downhill and stopped by at Restoran 126, which has pretty good reviews on the Internet. Spanning two floors, the restaurant is covered but has no air conditioning.
Very large space that can accommodate hundreds of guests at a time.
The waiter suggested we order the house special, Deep Fried Pork noodles.
It was terrible.
Stir-fried noodles at Chinese restaurants usually use small bits of pork lard, which gives the dish a silky, fatty flavour. I get that they were trying to do something different by deep frying big pieces of pork fat, but it was overly greasy. Pops tried to break up a piece with a fork. It was so hard, it made a ‘kok, kok’ sound, like he was hitting plastic lol. The beans were soggy and limp. The noodle texture was okay, but the whole dish was basically swimming in oil. I’d give this a 2/10. -_-
Their other dishes were okay. We had claypot tofu, and stir fried veggies. Judging from their online reviews, maybe their other dishes are decent….but man, do not order their house ‘special’ unless you want to feel like you swallowed a bottle of cooking oil.
