After our visit to the Rose Centre at Kea Farm we came back to the hotel. It was timely as it started to rain heavily after lunch. We were pretty much trapped in our room, not that we were complaining since the rain made our room nice and cosy. We spent the afternoon watching a movie on Fox, and took forty winks.

By the time the rain subsided it was already dusk. We made our way to O.K. Tuck located just a few doors away from our hotel (now do you know why we chose to stay at Brinchang instead of Tanah Rata?) and were lucky to get a table since someone had booked almost the entire front area of the restaurant.

Has it really been six years since we were last here? My, how time flies but somehow things here have remained unchanged.

in the heart of Brinchang
we had tomyam & herbal soup
sustenance, as always J

Unlike last night’s steamboat dinner, this time it was fired by a gas stove and like we said before, we couldn’t tell the difference. Only thing is, we liked OK Tuck better because of its choice of soups (normal, herbal, tom yam or a combination of any two). Also, it’s priced at RM16 per head which is closer to the normal market rate here.

The main reason why we keep coming back here is the pork rib beer (sic) which we take to mean pork ribs marinated in beer. We’ve been hunting high and low for the same dish in the Klang valley but to no avail. We’ll let the pictures paint the words for us J


and here we go J
dunkin' in 
ooh la la J
my two favourite things J
so much steam that you can get yourself a facial
Brendan can hardly wait
Running out of soup? No problem, plenty where that came from
half herbal, half tomyam
Brendan can't get enough
I'm digging in
time to put the camera away J


I’ll make it a point to look for this pork rib beer (or its variant) in the Klang valley once we get back home!
