Vege Fish Farm, Hulu Langat & Ampang Lookout Point

It was a huge event, again. In total, there were 41 of us, it was an amazing trip I would say. I happen to know this place from a colleague, earlier that we wanted to organize something for our group's gathering. Anyway, it didn't happen as none of us know the place well, yeah basically none except one.

Thus, after many months and many years of hearing it, finally I was brought there last weekend. It was somewhat an eye-opener place, being it near to the city center, where I would need to travel into every weekday, there lies a fish farm and a huge 'floating' restaurant, which basically built above its fish pond. Very authentic, possible Thai styled since they serve Thai food.

Many has blog about this restaurant. Thus, one may be able to find it from Google search pretty easily. Else, search its Official site here - http://www.fishfarmthai.com/.

Into the farm...

They have a 'real' farm near the fish pond restaurant.

Part of the floating restaurant... basically above the fish pond. Some authentic fruit stall and Thai dessert stall selling some kind, like Mango sticky rice (RM8), etc...

I saw they have BBQ crab, unfortunately... it was not ordered as part of our dish. Hmmm..

Ok, pictures trail below are dishes we ordered. I practically like the so called Snail Meat (what type??), the rest of dishes does not really capture my taste bud. Likely because they are very commercial and served at almost every tables. Mind you, I think they have close to 60 tables.

Some night scenery within the pond.

As most would recommend, a hike up to Ampang Lookout Point is highly recommended. It's just 5min drive away from the restaurant, along the same main road. However, our experience on a Saturday night wasn't too promising. There were huge crowd of peoples, couples, friends, families up the hill top's restaurants. Of course, arranging seats for 41 of us obviously was challenging. It managed to get ourselves on a long joined tables, but somewhat the place we have wasn't scenic at all, and the restaurant was not a good choice after all.

It's nice to spend some night long here, especially when the weather is 1-2C lower than the city itself, especially when the night is clear. It can be romantic too. :)
