Subak Restaurant, Bukit Lanjan

I find it right now dining with the nature has becoming a trend. People just loves to get away from the busy city and get some fresh air within the woods. Subak restaurant is one of them to deliver such atmosphere for you to enjoy. It is located on top of Bukit Lanjan. Searching for this restaurant can be tricky but nowadays anyone is relying on Waze so this shouldn't be a problem.
The trees are covering this whole restaurant as umbrella. The air is so fresh and chilling. There is no need for a fan or air-con here. However, there is only one issue which is the mosquito. They are pretty annoying and that is what you get in the woods. Their solution to that is to place a mosquito coil under your table. Now you no longer smell the fresh air but the mosquito coil. I would suggest to sit in this area which is brighter and has fan which is better.
They have a lot of seats available here and it is good for company event or a simple gathering. Subak restaurant is serving a fusion cuisine. They do have some well known common western food and at the same time they not forgetting our local delicacies as well.
They have a man made pond here to create some water in the woods. No music can be heard in this restaurant but the sound of the water from this pond. Well, that's how a nature supposed to be like.
The pond is not empty of course. They have few hundreds of Koi fish which comes with all different colors and sizes. \
Nusantara Chicken Soto @RM15.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 3/5 - Traditional chicken broth with soup paste, and coconut milk served with cubes rice, bean sprout, shredded chicken, potato cutlets and spicy soy- chili. The portion is unexpectedly so big and luckily we did not order a soup for each of us. Just this soup alone has already filling us both. All because of the rice cubes in it. As for the taste, usually soto is made from beef broth while this is the first time I had from a chicken broth. Without a doubt a beef broth taste better than chicken but do not erase this soup off yet because they are pretty delicious too. The taste of the chicken essence is quite thick enough to entice your appetite.


Crispy Home Made Javanese Popiah @RM15.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is filled with vegetables and minced chicken served with home made garlic scented sweet chili sauce. I prefer some crunchiness in a popiah instead of something soft inside. Don't get me wrong. The taste is not bad at all. It is just my self preference. Maybe this is the Javanese style.


Balinese Nasi Goreng @RM26.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - My goodness me! The portion is so big! The fried rice is the same like our local famous Nasi Goreng Kampung. I would prefer the fried rice to be more spicy. Overall, it is nothing memorable about this rice.


Deep Fried Pandan Chicken @RM36.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a pandan chicken served with seaweed white rice and Vegetables Dalcha which you definitely shouldn't miss it. It comes with 4 huge chicken meat wrapped with pandan leaves. The pandan fragrance has already infused inside the chicken. Every bite on the chicken will immersed the sensational pandan fragrance which will makes you wanted to go for more. They really know that you will need at least 4 of them to satisfy your indulgence but the price does not come cheap. Nevertheless, it is definitely a must order dish. 


Sago Gula Melaka @RM12.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is their signature dessert. It is sweet and delightful especially they are not stingy with their sago. Lots of little chewy bites for you to enjoy. A good dessert to end you meal.

Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for at least once to experience dining with the nature. However, I would not revisit this restaurant anymore because of the mosquito. Basically, you wouldn't want to sit around longer in the restaurant because of those annoying insect. You just wish to finish up your food and leave the restaurant in the shortest time possible.
