If you love food you will love Bangi. Bangi is now a food heaven by anybody's standard. The latest additions are Bakar Bakar restaurant- a steamboat and grill restaurant very much like Seoul garden restaurant. You are expected to spend RM 45 ringgit per pax at the restaurant. They serve seafood and meat. The place is quite comfortable and big. I would advise you to come right after Maghrib prayers but no later than 8 pm. Later than that you might not be able to secure a place to dine in. Another place to dine in or a place to have your lunch is the Restoran Temerloh. The place is famous for Tempoyak Ikan Patin and the sambal tempoyak is really a blast. I believe you will enjoy your lunch there.Please bring your family member too. it's like eating dishes prepared by your mom or your mother in law.
