Top tourist attraction Cameron Highlands may be cooling, but it’s definitely not a food heaven. The butterflies may get its ‘food’ from the freshest nectar on flowers…
But the human visitors usually don’t.
On this blog entry, we’ll go through some of the ‘local’ food my group had when we visited Cameron Highlands not long ago.
At Tanah Rata, there are several coffee shops that serve common food you can get practically anywhere.
One good example is the chicken rice. Other than this, you may also get noodles, mamak food and Malay delicacies.
Simple lunch, but you’re set for more bites while going around the highlands.
At any strawberry farms, you can probably get the strawberry ice sticks. Tastes sweet and cold. It just costs RM1 per stick.
Strawberries are one of the top attractions at Cameron Highlands. Some visitors purchase a huge amount of freshly plucked strawberries.
At certain places, you can get strawberries dipped in chocolate. The sweetness of the chocolate dip and the sourness of the strawberries combine together and create a intriguing mix of taste.
Normally these strawberries are prepared with wooden sticks first and will only then be dipped into the chocolate upon order.
Other than the typical strawberries, you can get other various delicacies at street food markets along the main road.
Fried stuffs such as banana fritters (pisang goreng), chicken nuggets and fried mushrooms.
There is also my favourite sweet corn in a cup! Creamy and munchy.
Off the streets, if you’re dropping by the ‘BOH’ Sungei Palas Tea Centre, there is a refreshment area as well.
The food here could be a little pricey, but you can get food like pastries, cakes and ice-creams. Over here, you can enjoy the scenery of the tea plantation while eating.
Some of the food we had was…
Blueberry Scone and Cream. Tasty especially with the white cream. You know, it costs RM7 per piece.
Told ya it’s quite expensive.
Strawberry cake. Sweet and creamy, what more can you expect from a cake like this?
Strawberry tart, filled with strawberry paste inside.
Chocolate melt that doesn’t melt.
And lastly from the menu, the Firecrackers Hot Dog. Nothing fiery nor crackery, it’s just stuffed with an ordinary hot dog.
Well, since it’s long and looks interesting, I just can’t resist this pose…
Look! Long stuff going into my mouth. Yum yum, tasty. :P
That’s pretty much it. Oh wait, what about steamboat? Yes, it’s quite a preferred meal at Cameron but we didn’t stay till night to have steamboat dinner.
By the way, for the kids. They can also have…
A lollipop! Just spotted this kid enjoying his sweet.
Alright, there are actually more, way more, different types of food around Cameron Highlands, but these are the ones we had during our less than 1 day trip to Cameron. :)
