This option includes a private room at Bricolage Homestay, all meals inclusive (including an incredible 8-course dinner!), and hiking.

In the day, trek to the nearby forest for a refreshing dip in the waterfalls and taste the executive chef TJ Tan's unique picnic dishes for lunch. Soak in the cool mountain spring water and let the cascading water from the falls wash your anxieties away.

At night, return to an 8-course BBQ dinner prepared specially with firewood flames. With 30 years of cooking experience in 5-star hotels, TJ can pretty much fulfill any special orders you may have. Get the chance to experience the best of Western and local cuisine combined with an alfresco dining experience!

“Love is a many splendored thing”, so says owner and our new found friend, TJ. Indeed, if the short weekend is anything to go by, I want more of this many splendored thing. If rustic living, slow barbecued food (prepared no less by a retired executive chef), and plenty of chatter (under the influence) with the owner is your kind of thing, then contact TJ. I’ll just post some crucial details: 1. On parking. As his abode is located 10 minutes away on 4x4, you park your vehicle in front of a Tamil school. Don’t bring your fancy vehicles. If you’re risk averse like me, speak with friendly TJ and he’ll give you options. 2. Rooms are simple yet comfortable. Bed fits a 180cm tall individual comfortably, or 2 smaller individuals. Fan is provided but it’s so cold in this lush highland forest that I didn’t see a need at night. 3. Do consider dining options with TJ. I enjoyed our BBQ dinner. You start of with skewered squid, Braised Chicken Wings, Fuyu Pork ribs (my favorite), Chef style Otak Otak (TJ’s hometown, Muar) with chunky pieces of fish complemented well with home made Sambal, roasted stuffed eggplant, baked potato with pesto sauce, and finished with BBQ corns. Anyone could make fuyu pork ribs but a good chef who controls his fire well is hard to find.

Great host and food in a farm set up. Truly amazing how TJ builds up everything from scratch and continue to add on more things into the farm. If you enjoy nature and great food, this is the place to be. Will return again for the BBQ

I first started discovering this place through my Bachelor’s Degree Gastronomic Tourism assignment and it was indeed the right pick! Chef TJ was an experienced chef who cooked superb and unique food. Till today I still had his food craving and had been recommending family and friends over. Went there for the fourth times already and still thinking when will be my next visit again. Anyway, the place is nice for those who wants to escape from the city and engaged in nature and food! Chef TJ and wife were definitely an animal lover too. Therefore, you will have the chance to listen to their adoption stories while giving a pat on doggies. Chef TJ will also bring you over to a hidden waterfall spot located close to his vicinity. Highly recommend this hidden gem to food, nature and animal lover!
