Bentong Must Eat Food

1. Wan Tan Mee

Credits to lokalocal

Wan Tan Mee first became popular in Bentong as an economy dish during a 1950s economic crisis. Today, the springy noodles with BBQ pork and wantan is beloved by locals and sought after by visitors.

If you plan to go food-hopping here, you might want to start off with a bowl of Wan Tan Mee. The portion isn’t too big and you’ll need the stomach space.

2. Tofu Puff and Bean Curd Products

Bentong produces the largest and fleshiest Tofu Puffs you will ever see, and they taste amazing! In fact, a trip to Bentong would not be complete without a visit to a century-old tofu factory.

After learning about how bean curd products are made, you get to tuck into the district’s famous Tofu Puffs, fresh from the factory. They also produce Soya Bean Milk and Tau Fu Fa, which you can tapau (take away) to have on the go or bring home.

3. Lemang Rice with Rendang

Lemang rice is typically made during Ramadan but good ones are hard to come by. Lemang To’Ki is a Malay restaurant well known amongst locals for its delicious lemang rice, which are grilled in bamboos throughout the day. It makes a delicious meal when paired with rendang.

4. Homemade Ice-Cream

How can you come to Bentong and not have its legendary homemade ice-cream? Kow Po Coffee Shop is a family-run ice-cream parlour of over 40 years, which has gotten much attention from the local media. They make their own old-school flavours such as chocolate, banana, peanut, strawberry, vanilla, pandan and durian.

Rather than just have the ice-cream on its own, tap into your Malaysian side and get it served with traditional ice kacang toppings. The best thing about it is that they are all much cheaper than what you find in the city.

5. Bentong Durian

If you are lucky enough to be at Bentong during the durian season, definitely have a hearty durian buffet. Some of the species grown here include the Musang King, D24 and D101. Durian lovers, you know what you’re in for.

Eating to your heart’s content is fun but how about picking your own durians too? To enter the durian orchard, you will need to ride a 4 wheel drive to designated spots where you can pick fruits that have fallen and crack them open for a bite. You will, however, need a local guide to bring you in. The durian season starts from June to August.
