To celebrate my old and best friend's birthday, we (high schoolmate) met at Spring Garden Restaurant for late lunch. The restaurant is located in the middle of an oil palm plantation. We travel from Bukit Mertajam via Jalan Kulim and after passing the junction to Machang Bubuk town, we keep driving and turn left to Jalan Mengkuang at the junction to Sungai Lembu. Drive for about two kilometers from the junction, you'll see a huge sign board on your left. Turn left and drive all the way up to the restaurant. The gravel path leading to the restaurant is narrow and we have to drive slow. As we approach the restaurant, we can see several huts, fruit trees, bamboo and flowers. It was dizzling and the whole area is cool and quiet. I like the surrounding... full of green, no air-conditional, cool air (even during the sunny day). One unique character of this restaurant - the owner insisted no wall, no door, and no window concept. Guest can enjoy good food amidst natural surrounding. Food and beverage price here very reasonable.
The owner has experienced in running tea house; thus, quality of tea served here is pleasant to drink and tea drinking tools are complete. Its heavenly to drink tea with the surrounding - bamboo tree, cool air, bird singing, display of tea tools, and other clay collections.
