Not all bad…

Well, actually, the nasi kerabu that we had here was not too bad, just that we thought the one at this other place was a lot nicer…but no, I wouldn’t want to order their ayam percik again, not when they are using that kind of frozen chicken with the somewhat mushy texture of the not-too-tasty meat.

However, we went back there again the other day because I saw that they had laksam on their menu and my girl loves that! This is a Kelantan dish (RM6.00)…

…with those chee cheong fan-like sheets all rolled up and served in rich, thick fish gravy. The gravy was very nice despite the fact that my girl spotted two or three fish bones in it but unfortunately, the “noodles” were hard/chewy/rubbery, not nice and fine and smooth like really good chee cheong fan so my girl did not quite enjoy it.

The mum had the nasi lemak

*Now, that has got to be the ugliest fried egg I have ever seen!*

…with sambal sotong (RM6.50)…

…and they even gave a slice of salted ikan kembong with it…

…and yes, it was very nice but when I tried a bit, she had already mixed everything together so I was not able to tell how lemak the rice actually was.

As for me, I saw lontong on their menu and I quickly ordered that to try. So far, I have not seen this served in any of the shops around town and all that I had had so far would be those sold in packets at some stalls and I would not say that any of them swept me off my feet.

The one I had that morning was pretty good and it had tempeh in it (RM5.50)…

…and was served with a bit of the nasi lemak sambal ikan bilis

Yes, I would say it was very nice but at that price, maybe I would think twice about having it again or if I do, it probably will not be all that soon…
