Like this before…

We had something like this before…

Colourful Cafe honey chicken wings

…when the guy was still working at the old place, his honey chicken wings, and they were priced at RM9.50 then but here, they were going for only RM8.50 for 3. I certainly am glad to see that he is slowly adding things to his menu, things that probably were very popular before and now that he is running his own place here, he can offer them at comparatively more competitive prices.

We did not have any plans to go anywhere special for lunch last Saturday so we decided to just stop by on our way home for a bite to eat. My missus asked for the fried noodles (RM4.00)…

…with a special request for it to be extra spicy and she liked it.

My girl wanted the nasi lemak and I ordered for her the one with a chicken wing (RM6.00)…

…as she was not all that keen on the curry or the masak hitam. It did not occur to me then but I could have ordered the regular nasi lemak (RM4.00) for her and she could have the aforementioned honey wings with it. After all, a fried chicken wing is a fried chicken wing – can’t really expect anything much from that. She loved the sambal which she thought was really good.

I ordered the nasi lemak special, masak hitam beef (RM7.00)…

…for myself and I did let my girl try a little bit of the beef and she thought that was nice too.

After having had our fill, we headed back to the house which is just around the corner. How convenient!

  1. Oh that sauce on the last dish looks very rich and savory. Yum… just the way I like them. The other meals look delicious also.

    That’s dark soy sauce with blended raisins plus shallots, ginger, gallangal, lemon grass – all those, blended too…and spices like star anise of cinnamon sticks. For meat and I’ve had it with prawns too, dunno if it is good with say…potatoes, perhaps or bean curd cakes.

  2. Your nasil lemak is full to the brim, Arthur! Nice food, convenient location, reasonable prices… What else could we ask for… πŸ™‚

    Indeed! Not the first time I dropped by here and definitely, will not be the last.

  3. ooo, y’know, i was just reading the other day about people cautioning the public not to eat wings, cos of the claims that the wings are the parts that are injected with hormones. but apparently, that’s a myth and completely false, so we can go ahead and keep enjoying our wings in peace πŸ™‚

    I heard that too – it used to be the neck until the KL taxi driver started developing breasts from eating too many of those. Actually, now, the wings are the most expensive part of the bird – there are so many stalls selling barbecued chicken wings so I guess there is a greater demand for them.

    I’m not really a fan as the drummet is like breast, the middle part is ok – not all that much meat plus the skin and the tip, I would just throw away – nothing much there. 😦

  4. I would go for curry chicken when I have nasi lemak. Sometimes the fried chicken could be dry and tough. I don’t know, I find some people like their fried chickens dry. I prefer juicy and tender with flavour.

    Business is good for him. Can open from a shop now.

    The fried chicken here was ok, not dry…just that it was not marinated much so it was kind of plain and simple. I did not quite like his curry as it was not spicy at all, not even a little bit. That was why I stuck to his masak hitam, very good. He has his own place now, a small shop – he sells all the food…and a couple handle the drinks.

  5. All looks so good and guess what I am aiming for…oh yes, the fried noodles. For the nasi lemak, I prefer the masak hitam.

    Great choice! I would strongly recommend that…especially now that I have tried all three.

  6. Your chicken wings look so so good.. So sticky, so yummy, looks so sweet.. I am sure you can bake the same at home.. I like Mel’s nasi lemak, but I prefer rendang chicken, or something with curry gravy..

    You’ve never tried our masak hitam beef so you wouldn’t know how nice that is. As for the chicken wings, they are nice…but yes, my missus can come up with very much nicer ones at home, that goes without saying.

  7. They’re looks presentable, especially the chicken wings. Yummy. πŸ˜‹

    They were good. Serves no pork here – the people running the coffee stall are Muslims.

  8. The fried noodles look good.. I like them dry like that, but most places like to cook it “basah”.

    They do not do it basah here – always dry…noodles or kway teow, not sure if they have bihun or not.

  9. The nasi lemak is so big portion, if me I just can finish half of the rice only, hehe!

    Such a small eater you. Never mind, if you go with me, I can finish everything for you. πŸ˜€

  10. Mmmmm….I love chicken wings! I love them broiled, baked, garlic, honey, barbecued…they are delicious! πŸ™‚

    Then you’d love these here…

  11. Ooo…the chicken wings have a very nice color! Honey chicken wings, eh? Sounds delicious. The masak hitam beef looks pretty good too!

    Yes, both good…but if I were to be given just one choice, I would choose the masak hitam. Much nicer.

  12. I like that the nuts are without skin. I always removed the skin before eating them. I like my nuts naked. Haha.

    I’m ok with nuts, skin or skinless. πŸ˜€

  13. Nice! I’ve been here before but never tried their chicken wings. At first I didn’t know where this was, was trying to guess based on proximity, until I clicked through and saw the familiar church. πŸ™‚

    I think the wings are new, just added to the menu, hand-written…or scribbled. What did you have here?

  14. How delicious. I’d go for the noodles πŸ˜‰

    All good, I would say.

    P.S. Thanks for dropping by and commenting – a warm welcome to you. Lovely blog you have there – all about cats. For a while, I thought you were a Kuching blogger – Kuching (Malay word for cat) is the capital of the state of Sarawak where I am from, here in Malaysia.

  15. Oh my… the honey chicken wings look so glistening like beckoning for me! I shd try to make that at home, it looks delish!

    Shouldn’t be too difficult to do this ourselves.

  16. Grilled Honey chicken wing..I can eat a lot of them but not deep fried version.

    We will grill ours in the oven at home too, never deep fry. Easy…and nice…and healthier too!
