DINNER AT RESTORAN BROGLA IN BROGA, SEMENYIH.

What a disappointment it was to find the food photos in Broga missing from my smart phone a few days after I came back from my holidays in Semenyih. Lately, some photos have been disappearing from my smart phone, must be some cranky problem with my smart phone! I remembered I was asked to share the photos with my hubby through Whatsapp the night itself. He wanted to forward the photos to a friend who couldn't be with us.

When I found the photos missing, I thought they were gone forever. It was only much later that I realized that our friend may still have a copy of the photos. I quickly messaged her to ask whether the photos are still with her or not, or whether she has already deleted them from her smart phone. What a relief when after a short while later, she forwarded back the photos to me. Thank you so much, Michelle, for the photos!

The first evening we arrived in Semenyih, we were taken to Broga for dinner. Our host had a few places in mind but finally decided on Broga when I mentioned that my ex-colleague highly recommended Restoran Broga.
We arrived about 7 pm and there were already many cars parked there and about 5 to 6 tables were occupied by customers.

This view was taken from where our cars were parked.

Inner portion of the restaurant.

After our orders were taken, we sat back and entertained each other with our updates, jokes and conversation. But after more than half an hour, we noticed that the dishes were very slow in coming out from the kitchen and the other tables that were before us were still waiting. The mosquitoes were having a feast, biting & sucking blood from our legs under the table. I got up from the table to walk about to escape the mosquitoes and took some photos. Looked like the mosquitoes were targeting only a few of us but not the others. Maybe Ipoh blood taste sweeter...lol!
The waiting time was exceptionally long that evening. Previously, when my ex-colleague & her family were there for lunch, I was told the waiting time was normal.
Finally, the dishes started to arrive at our table. Plain steamed fish (pak soh koong in Cantonese). Garnished with ginger strips, garlic oil and coriander leaves.

Green tender fern stir-fried with spicy prawn paste. (Sambal belacan sayur paku-pakis).

Bitter gourd egg omelette.

I like this tasty tofu, crispy on the outside, silky smooth and soft on the inside. I think its chopped salted radish & minced meat as topping.

Deep fried mantis shrimp with salted egg, crispy and very tasty.
Cost of dinner MYR 166 for 9 people (45.63 USD)

For supper - our host opening the durian fruits for us.
Looks like I was not the only one busy taking photos.
I love durians, I love the smell and I love to eat durians!
I am durian crazy, durian freak or lau leen choong in Cantonese!
2 big super yummy fruits, what a feast!

How priceless is Your unfailing love, O God!

People take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

They feast on the abundance of Your house;

You give them drink from Your river of delights.

For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.

(Psalm 36:7-8, New International Version-NIV)

  1. Not into durian any more. Used to eat a lot as kids as parents love them so much and bought a lot from countryside. Some how I lost interest in durian as I grew up. Lol.

    I love all the dishes you ordered.

    Maybe you should bring your phone for a check up. Maybe something wrong with data.

    1. Hi Theresa, durian has thorny, thick skin and very strong smell. Some find the smell too strong for them.

  13. I never had durian, so I have no idea what they taste like. They look very interesting.
    Here, sometimes we have to wait longer times in restaurants as well. It doesn't happen very often, though - Americans are very impatient (that's probably why there are so many fast food places here which I personally dislike. Food has to be enjoyed with time).

    1. We do have fast food here but we only eat them once in a while. If we are not in a rush, most time we won't time the waiting for a reasonable time.

    1. I think the price is reasonable but compared to Euro currency, our salary is very low.
