A Foodie Trip In Search Of Gopeng Hill Assam Laksa & Beggars Chicken.

We have heard of this place up in the Gopeng Hill that serves Assam Laksa, Beggar's Chicken, grilled chicken, and etc. My friends and I were curious and decided to scout out this place. We had to pass through Gopeng town, then some kampungs (villages) to reach this place called Kg Pintu Padang. We have to drive up the narrow uphill road before we saw a little sign "Gopeng Hill Assam Laksa". We drove passed the gate and we were the first customers for that day.
A little place with nice scenery in the middle of a spacious hillside ground
This is the accommodation and the kitchen area, surrounded by greens, and fruit trees. 
It was 11:00 am and they were in the midst of their cooking.
Here, they serve various kinds of Hakka cuisine.
That morning, we saw a mother with her daughter and a helper at work in the kitchen.
The mother cutting beancurd sheet. According to her, she used to be a rubber tapper. She stopped work as a rubber tapper after her foot injury and now, she operates this hillside eatery.
These beancurd sheets are cut into smaller squares before deep frying.
These will be served together with the assam laksa.
On the right, her daughter was cooking something in the kuali.
She was cooking stewed sweet, sour and spicy pork trotter.
We didn't get to taste this because it was not fully cooked yet.
Since we didn't place any orders with them, we asked what was available for us.
We were told that they have extra Beggar's chicken or Herbal chicken.
The chicken was still hot and the daughter needs to wear cotton gloves to unwrap the outer layer of aluminium foil used for wrapping the chicken.
Firewood is used for cooking Herbal Chicken and Grilled Chicken.
"Smile! Ladies smile!
As usual, busy snapping photos while waiting for the food to be served.
This place was mentioned in the local newspaper, and many from far and near have visited this place.
They even have a price list and contact number.
Please call to place your food order.
We ordered 2 bowls of Assam Laksa to share.
Sweet and sourish Assam Laksa served with crispy beancurd sheet.
We also ordered some Hakka yong tau foo or stuffed tofu and some deep fried wantons.
While we were eating, more cars came in through the gate.
This is half the Herbal Chicken, sweet and tender.
We found free range chickens on the grounds.
And there are dogs to watch over the place.
"Oh no, she wants to take my photo"!
"I am shy, please go away."
