No regrets…

We did not plan on dropping by this place for lunch that Sunday but after the church service that morning, I drove past a few places around town but could not find a parking space. It would be easier on weekdays as normally people park by the hour or less and sooner or later, there would be somebody leaving and one would be able to grab the space quickly. I have the feeling, however, that all the business people would drive their cars out on Saturdays and Sundays and leave the vehicles there happily for the whole day as parking is free on these two days. They do not seem to realise that they would lose some potential customers for the simple reason that there is no place to park the car and they would just go elsewhere…like me!

Parking was not a problem at all where we went that day and we all had the nasi bryani which came with a piece of papadum. To go with that, I ordered the sambal chicken…

…something that I had not had before, to give it a try and I would say it was really very good! I sure would want to have that again the next time I drop by the place.

For the vegetable dish, this cangkuk manis with pumpkin…

CM&P

…that we had was very nice though I did wish they had torn the vegetable a bit more. That would make it easier to chew and would also bring out the sweetness a lot more.

I had the mutton curry before…

MC

…and I ordered that as Melissa loves the meat and we also had the tandoori chicken…

TC

…which was just as good. The one here is deep-fried, not baked in a tandoori oven so it is juicier but of course, it is less healthy. I’ve heard friends saying that they do not like tandoori chicken as the meat is dry. I guess that would be at the not-so-good places where they would leave the chicken on the skewers in the hot oven for too long and all the juices and the fat would have dripped off the meat and that is why it gets to be a bit too dry and not as nice.

For one thing, the stuff they serve here is not spicy so it would go down well with folks who are not into hot stuff but for us, we would prefer everything a lot spicier and it was this sambal belacan

SB

…that saved the day. Normally, they would only give that with their ikan goreng (fried fish) or ayam goreng (fried chicken) but the boss gave us some and boy, did we enjoy that!!!

And that was not all! When I went to settle the bill, it came up to only RM29.00 for 3 persons, inclusive of our drinks…but the boss gave me a discount and asked fro RM25.00 only. Isn’t he nice? With that kind of PR, I, for one, would want to go there again and again and again.

Without any reservation, I do firmly declare that we certainly had no regrets whatsover choosing to go there for lunch that day…
