Let’s go somewhere else…

Last Sunday, after the Sunday service in the cathedral, we dropped by here as I thought Melissa would want to eat their fish and chips which she likes and I personally feel it is the nicest around. However, she did not want that and decided to try their chicken chop (RM13.00++) instead…

Good grief!!! That piece of meat was so small that I was wondering if it was quail. It tasted all right but Melissa said that the ones that she had here and also here were much nicer.

My missus had the Penang char kway teow (RM10.00++)…

PCKT

…which did not look anything like the real thing unfortunately and as for the taste, it sure wasn’t anything to shout about. If that is what you want, I think you can get something better here.

I chose their nasi lemak (RM12.00++)…

NL 1

…which was very nice – the rice, that is. It was fragrant and cukup lemak (rich enough with adequate santan/coconut milk) but it fell a bit short when compared to my favourite in town – the one at the roadside stall at Bandong here. I did wish they had removed the heads and cleared the insides of the fried ikan bilis (anchovies) – they do not particularly enjoy bustling business, I must say, so they would have ample time to do that…instead of browsing online on their ipads or smartphones (I saw the waitress doing that when I went to ask for my bill – no wonder she did not notice when I was waving frantically to get her attention! Tsk! Tsk!) Besides, I would think that they could have easily fried their own peanuts as well.

Other than that, they could have served it in a smaller plate as well, I thought…

NL 2

…so it would not look so bare. The fish was a bit over-fried unfortunately and the beef satay was kind of tough but the chicken one was good and tasted great…and the sambal was good too.

Ah yes! The chef forgot the egg so it was brought to me a little later…

NL 3

…and it certainly looked like somebody was in dire need of a refresher course in cooking hard-boiled eggs and peeling them. That looked like somebody had been nibbling on it… Eyewwwwww!!!!!

All in all, it was, at best, all right…a bit pricey but all right but for that kind of money, I think we’d much sooner go somewhere else for some much nicer stuff unless it’s the fish and chips or their nice and quite affordable set lunches that we are looking for.
