Uncle Lim’s at Pangkor Laut Resort
We had a disaster dinner at the Feast village on the first night.
I ordered a gado gado. It was beautifully plated but the peanut sauce was rancid and the mini spring rolls tasted off.
After that we had evening meals at Lim’s. I actually met Uncle Lim and had a picture taken with him. The waiter told us that he is 81 this year and cooks several times a week and goes to the port twice a week to get fresh supplies. He does not allow anyone else to cook his special dishes. I don’t blame him as his special dishes were different and I am having trouble working out what he does.
On the first evening we had Uncle Lim’s signature dish –aromatic whole fish steamed on banana leaves with lemon grass. I check the base of the dish– it had pounded soya beans, sliced green chilli, kafir lime leaves and lemon grass and–methinks skin of the kaffir lime fruit. The waiter said it had belacan–not that I can taste it. The central bone of the fish was removed and Uncle Lim said it was steamed for 15 minutes.
