I have been meaning to try out Subak for sometime now but its location seemed so out of bounds for me. But since my makan buddy is game we headed towards Bukit Lanjan and after some narrow roads we finally spotted the place. There’s no parking within the restaurant grounds so we settled for a roadside curb.
I reckon we were one of the first patrons for the evenings as the sun was only beginning to start to set. And that set the whole garden in this lovely golden hue and we couldn’t wait to explore the grounds. It’s quite a romantic garden restaurant but mosquitoes were also everywhere which spoilt it a bit for us.
We were planning to order the Indonesian food but ended up with mostly Western instead.
Started off with the Gado-Gado (RM12). The emping was a nice touch and we were appreciative of the generous amount of peanuts in the peanut sauce. But my friend’s mum did think it was too spicy and covered the delicate flavour of the vegetables.
One of our mains was the Cod Fish (RM50). Served with only one prawn and some vegetables and baby potatoes, I would say that the price was quite steep. Tastewise, it didn’t really impress us much.
The Lamb (RM46) looked more promising and was served with sweet potato mash and some greens. Though the creamy texture of the mash was a winner with us, we found the lamb a bit too tough and hard to tear off the bones so it was another dish that failed to impress.
We loved the atmosphere the place exudes but we weren’t won over by the food to be honest. Which is a pity considering that I would love to come back again and again just to be soaked in the tranquility this place offers.
