I have heard and read so much about Prontip which is a Thai foods restaurant located next to a dogs grooming place. My fussy husband plays badminton there and he complained about the smell of the doggies there. So, he refused to bring us to have lunch there eventhough I ‘teh’ for a long time already. He kept joking, “Don’t eat there, the dog fleas all jumped into the foods. If you are not careful, you also get fleas.” Haih…
He finally relented today because I insisted to go there for ‘blogging sake’. The buffet lunch starts at 11.30 am and when I got there around 11.45 am, the place is already filled with a lot of people. The reason? The foods are good and cheap. Not the tastiest Thai foods but still value for money.
The above is the kerabu mango. There are tomyam, fried rice, fried noodle, different kinds of curries and vegetables.
I was delighted to see the different varieties of deep fried yam, deep fried kangkong and deep fried mushrooms. All crispy and hot.
Above is the deep fried kangkong, spring rolls and Thai laksa.
Thai laksa garnished with ginger flower (bunga kantan), long beans and pineapples. The Thai Laksa is the lemak type but the gravy is thickened with fish like Penang assam laksa.
The buffet lunch price is the net price with no service charge or Government tax. There are free drinks and also fresh fruits and sago for dessert.
No wonder so many people are flocking to Prontip for lunch. A plate of rice with three dishes from the economy rice stall easily costs RM6 nowadays. So, where else can you find such cheap lunch with more foods than you can eat? Service is pleasant and they did not even charge my five years old boy eventhough he ate five tiny pieces of fried chicken. That’s why Prontip gets a mention on Malaysia Best food blog. Prontip is P R O N and not P O R N, ok?
