Bangkok Pork Leg Rice, Genting Cafe

One of the things desperately missed about Bangkok is its infamous pork leg rice. I was informed some time ago that there was a stall at Genting Cafe serving up some delish pork leg rice. Prior to leaving for Cameron Highlands, we stopped over for lunch. Despite it being late-ish, the place was still crowded and we waited a fair bit for our orders to arrive.

When it did... WAS good, but it wasn't great. I don't know if it was the absence of preserved vegetables on the side, or if the fact that the rice was a little dry/undercooked, or that it lacked the general mise en scene of street eating in Bangkok, but it just wasn't anything like the real thing. Still, if you're hungry and it's pork leg rice you're craving and nothing, absolutely nothing else will do and a trip to Bangkok is out of the question, this will do fine.

The stall is only open for lunch, closed Mondays.

This genting cafe pork leg rice definately different from what you can get in thailand. Sad thing is, it is local version pork leg rice rather than called thai pork leg rice!
