Japan Hole Bukittinggi is one of the historical attractions in the city of Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Indonesia. Japan is a tunnel hole (bunker) the protection of the Japanese occupation forces built around the year 1942 for defense. Japan began to run into the hole attraction in history in 1984, by the local government. Some of Japan's entrance into this hole are located in the canyon area Sianok, Panorama Park, next to the Bung Hatta Palace and Zoo in New York City.

First, the hole having a length of about 1,400 feet of winding, and more than 2 meters wide was built to function as a storage supplies and equipment of war the Japanese army. Inside the cave there are 21 tunnels before a small alley into the halls for various purposes such as offices, hospitals, food room, jail, space weapons, ambush, and a torture chamber. An estimated tens to hundreds of thousands of forced labor or romusha deployed to dig this tunnel.

When first discovered, the diameter of the entrance hall, measuring 20 cm. Only at the circumference of the body of Japanese soldiers is rather slim. And after that, the entrance hole is now restored to the hall about 3-4 meters in diameter and is equipped with neon lights at various angles and sides. However, the walls have not changed, the stone walls of the first sectional aims to muffle the sound (echo) that does not sound out. Blow forcefully strokes with a sharp object rather still recorded in a number of walls. In addition to its strategic location in the city, the land that became the wall of this tunnel is a type of soil which, if mixed with water will be more sturdy. Even the earthquake that shook West Sumatra in 2009 and not much damage the structure of this tunnel.

When entering this place, you should be down around more than 100 steps. And you will go down as far as 40 feet into the bowels of the earth. But you need not worry, the Japanese have a bit of a mysterious hole, because if we are getting longer or deeper into this hole, the air will feel even colder. It was said that there are six air vents in it so that the deeper the hole we entered it, the colder the air is also how we feel.

FBB is a manic driver! We missed the lane at the toll and he promptly told Cumi to get down and move the barrier so that he could get into the correct lane. Also, we missed the turn off for Genting, and FBB stopped the car on the highway and reversed back into the correct road.  Too ludicrous for words. Anyway, I am happy to say, and you can tell from my previous post, that we made it to the High Hills BBQ in once piece, thank God!

'Ban Untung' (the Profitable Ban), is where the name Bentong was derived from. Back in the day, tin developers constructed bans in this tiny town, to extract tin. Being the focal point where tin ore was discovered in the two main rivers, Repas and Perting, Betong was thriving then, and a lot of people made money here , especially the tin developers.

Anyway, there's the history lesson on how Betong derived its name. After pigging out at High Hills BBQ and visiting FBB's holiday mansion, we got hungry again, so we ventured back into Bukit Tinggi town for a light snack. That's Selesa Homes you can see, in the hilly distance.

Lack luster Kaya puffs. So sad that the once delicious, flaky puffs were dry and the kaya had no taste this time. The Honey Nangka (Jack Fruit) that FBB bought from the shop outside was good though. This nangka is crunchy, as opposed to slimy, and sugary sweet , as opposed to fragrant. It was pretty good.

Restoran Foon Lock is famous for its frog legs and chinese dai-chow, but unfortunately we only had space in our stomachs for the kow low yoke (a.k.a. KLY or , Sweet and Sour pork). Since munkey had it the last time and said that it was delicious we wanted to try it. The KLY is sliced into thin slices, battered and fried, which makes it more crunchy than the normal chuncks of KLY. Unfortunately today's KLY was not great. It lacked aroma and flavour. That's all right, the next time we come back, we will head for the steam fish and frogs legs !

You can see all the MEN in the family are responsible for fruit picking and grocery shopping.. and they do it so well too. You can see them sniffing and shaking and rubbing and stroking the fruit till they get the perfect one. Not unlike how one selects one's soul-mate:P So much practice.. and that's why, these men selected well!

The End.

Restoran <b>Bukit Tinggi</b> BBQ @ Bentong, Pahang - CC Food Travel

High Hills BBQ Restaurant. When A lil fat monkey told us that we were going there for lunch, I envisioned grassy plains, cool weather and a massive Australian BBQ pit. After all, the name "High Hills" sounded so Western plus the word BBQ is just down right Mat Salleh. Anyway, just some quick information on the place we were headed out to. Bukit Tinggi is a small town in the Bentong district of Pahang, Malaysia. This small town is located along Karak Expressway. Cumi and ciki actually love Bentong for it's Chinese hawker food, especially the Hokkien Fried Noodles. Read about our past experiences here and here.

Grilled Salt-Crusted Tilapia -  RM30

No, this place is 100% China-man style cooking. So, picture if you will, Chinese style BBQ. Strange no doubt but actually really rather tasty. For example, this fish is grilled (or BBQ-ed) Ala Chinese style, suspended over a Wok, the heat from which cooks the fish evenly throughout its salt crusted body.

The salt is then peeled away, and what remains is a moist, BBQ-ed fish. The flaky, succulent white meat tells you that the fish has been perfectly cooked.  One special surprise in store of diners would be the stuffed garnishing in the belly of the fish. The man walked passed our table and said – Hey, don't forget to eat the 'good stuff'. Full marks for this dish.

Rice with veges and drenched in sweet seafood/meat stock – RM12

Ask anybody who knows me, I am not a big fan of carbo because 1. it goes straight to my ass and 2. I don't really see the point of wasting stomach space on something so tasteless and .. you catch my drift!(Noodles and bread I will eat anytime though.. so I guess it's just that one form of carbohydrates that I don't fancy). Anyway, with that in mind, and to cut a long story short,  I have to say that this rice dish completely took me by surprise. The flavour of juicy pumpkins, onions, carrots, peppers the lard of many fat animals and stock of many, many sea creatures, completely took over, this white rice dish and gave new meaning to the word – creative eating.  That day, I ate rice!

Steamed Seafood Overload Pot-  RM80

If you know what a towering double boiler looks like, then this top photo will come as no surprise. Calms, prawns, crab .. crustaceans in all forms and sizes, steamed in their own sweaty little juices over a period of time, to  yield perfectly cooked seafood as well as the sweetest of stocks that collects at the bottom of the tower.  This sauce will then be  used to cooked  fresh vegetables for your dining pleasure towards the end of the meal.

BBQ-ed Rack of Lamb – RM80

This lamb is the bomb. It beats many a fine dining restaurant flat for 1. taste, 2. taste and 3. taste. OK, and price too! The  meat is succulent and just with enough gaminess to make it memorable. The skin is grilled to a crisp with just a fine layer of white fat beneath it. The only sign that this was previously part of the rib of a Lamb, was the neat, sliver of bone at the base of that fat, juicy body of meat. Indescribable euphoria descended upon our table as we ate the lamb in silence. Awe struck, we ate up ever last piece with the homemade mint sauce.

Greens in powerful seafood stock – RM8

This is the vegetable in seafood stock that I was talking about. They served it up right at the end. A bit too salty for me, but I guess it would go well, with rice.

The secret cook's handshake – flying fish and screaming monkey. (A lil fat monkey will probably kill me for posting this photo but.. come on.. it's been done before .. have you not watched Iron Chef?!  :P ) This is how they make the fish look like it was flying just a second ago. I love animation.


Off to our holiday home after lunch to work off all that consumed fat and cholesterol. Thanks FBB, for loaning us your holiday home on such sort notice. Much obliged! Next time we bring the relatives, the babies and the other monkeys! Thank you.. thank you:P
