It’s your turn…

After our Italian dinner that night, Justin invited me out for dinner again as he had promised me to give me a treat sometime ago and had not got down to doing that. Well, since they had not tried the food here before, we all agreed to meet there – the two of us and also Julia and her brother, Gabriel – both home on holiday from Perth.

They did not want anything spicy so I steered away from the usual belimbing or tom yam prawns and the like but I did order the special Payung otak-otak which they thought was spicy but they were fine with it. Of course, we had the mushroom roll as well and I also ordered their lamb masala

…which was pretty nice.

When Mandy was in town, she had the asam chicken…

…which was new and she liked it, so I ordered that too to give it a try. It was good but between the two, I think I prefer the masala.

Everybody loved the Payung rojak and they also wanted the aromatic kacang ma chicken

…so I asked for that with extra Chinese white wine. Justin had that in Kuching before and was pretty impressed by the one here. Julia, on the other hand, was having it for the first time and she loved it.

For dessert, I ordered the banana cake with ice cream

…and their Mulu ice cream…

…and also their durian ice cream…

…with a special request for extra durian. Yum! Yum!

Julia wanted the jelly pisang that she had read so much about in my blog so she ordered a glass of that as well.

All in all, everyone loved what we had that night but I would say that although they had maintained the prices of everything on their menu, it seemed that the portions had shrunk somewhat. In the past, I think there would be enough to be shared among 3-4 persons but looking at what we had that night, I would think there would be sufficient for 2 or 3 only. Thankfully, they had not scrimped on the ingredients so in my opinion, everything still tasted as great as ever!

Thank you so very much, Justin, for the very nice dinner and to Julia & Gabriel for your delightful company. I certainly had a great time and I hope you all did too!
