Various in Tanah Rata etc: Cook it yourself - the steamboat
The steamboat dish can be found in various places, but it is a local speciality here in the Cameron Highlands area - and virtually every restaurant along the main strip in Tanah Rata offers it.
The best bet is just to walk along the one main road and find a place that you like the look of, and other people are already tucking in.
Favorite Dish: The cooking pot is delivered to you table along with a gas canister which sits underneath. The boiling contraption contains one (for the cheapest meal), two or even four soups. You than proceed to place the different meats, seafood, vegtables and noodles into the thing, allowing them to cook for a few minutes.
As you are actually cooking it yourself, prices are low. I think we paid only 15 Ringitt or so for our 'mid-range' meal each

Food Court: Restaurants and Food Courts in Brinchang
The food is cheaper and in abundace in Brinchang food court. You will be spoilt for choice - no danger of going hungry in Brinchang. There are vegetarian, indian, chinese and seafood restaurant - though i fail to understand why anyone will opt for seafood restaurant when up in the mountains - its expensive too.
Favorite Dish: I had a plate of nasi goreng- which is nothing to shout about. But, when travelling, I eat to live and not vice versa
Coffee House: Best Fish Head Curry in Cameron Equatorial Hotel
The fish head curry was just right, not too spicy and not too blend. The ambience is nice too.
