    enterance to food court... 3 more images

    by chiabh Updated Dec 19, 2010

    We found the food court after asking around the town... The idea came from a customer at our last lunch in Lenggong wanton mee stall... As Lenggong is noted for its wanton mee at Roti Wantan Mee stall, we were told that Raub has a good wanton mee stall in the wet market...

    Favorite Dish: On our first visit, the wanton mee stall was closed as the owner is away on a overseas holiday... As an alternative, we have bah kut teh (bkt) which the stall owner claims that he is from Klang, the bkt town... The bkt is just passable... On our next ocassion, we manage to taste the wanton mee... Although the wanton mee is acceptable but the char siew is way out of taste... It is still Lenggong for wantan mee...

    The restaurant is located is hosed in the old government clubhouse built by the British which was of wooden structure with stained glass window... The dining area is airy with high ceiling and ceiling fan... There is also an air-conditioned room that can take up about 6 or 7 tables... Dining here is like going back in time with the colonial ambience...

    Along the walls are display of photographs of VIPs that patronise the restaurant including the Sultan of Pahang and the current Prime Minister, Dato Najib Razak..

    Favorite Dish: The speciality here is the fresh river fish as elsewhere in Raub... The prices are reasonable...

    Deer Meat Satay is my dinner in Raub, at a Malay Muslims restaurant named Rokiah Sate. The Deer Meat Satay cost RM0.80 per stick, I only ate 10 sticks, super delicious. Many peoples eating here at night, probably the location is easy, quite enjoyable.

    Nothing to do is my nightlife at Raub. The town is not big, very basic, local peoples mostly hang around at restaurants watching peoples and gossip, some youngsters would drive their cars or bikes circling the town to have fun. There's a 7-Eleven, I bought some drinks and bread to enjoy in hotel and also walking on street to snap some night photos.

Raub Off The Beaten Path

    Somewhere 5 km out of Raub town saw a Latex trading centre named You Man. This is a place where after the rubber tappers collected the latex in cup from the rubber tree in early morning come to trade, its actually a trading centre. This is the early stage of rubber making, if you are interested, please take a visit.

    A short but pretty tough 18 hole golf course. Fairways are seldom cut, probably twice a month. Greens are cut once a week - front nine on Tuesdays and back nine on Thursdays. The course is only immaculate condition if some bigshot is in town and plans to play there. Bunkers have never been maintained or raked since day one. Somehow the management don't consider the bunkers as part of the course. LOL. Best thing to do is just avoid them.

    This is a neat little challenging course. To score well, it requires a good placement off the tee. If you can work the ball right to left off the tee, it sets up for a good angle to approach the greens. Back nines are hilly and shorter compared to the front.

    the signboard - at entrance to club... 4 more images

    The par 72 18-holes course is a tough course by any standard and it needs to get used to... The First Nine plays to 3,055 yds... With the Second Nine at 3,033 yds, the course plays to a short 6,088 yds from the blue tees... The fairway is fairly maintained (in November 2010) compared to some years ago when I play the course...

    As the rough is pretty bad, golfer must played straight on the fairway and any outway balls in the rough will be hard to locate... This is again a thinking course and course management is important for a reasonable score sheet... The course is hilly which makes it more difficult...

    Equipment: The club does not have a place for drinks or food... The clubhouse is a bit run down... So are the changing rooms as traffic is not heavy at the club...
