Stay another day…

Usually, come Sunday, we would have to send my girl back to her school in the jungle but we did not have to do that last Sunday as they had taken the following day, Easter Monday, off which meant that they got to enjoy an extra-long weekend.

We got up early that morning to go for the Easter Sunday service in church knowing that the place would be packed and if we went later, we might not be able to get a seat…and when it was all over, we dropped by here for brunch.

My girl loves the thosai

Sri Pelita thosai 1

…here and yes, it is gluten-free so she can get to enjoy that, not the roti canai, murtabak, chappati, naan and whatever else made from wheat flour. She likes the ones here a lot more than what she had here, the dips in particular, and that morning, she asked for two…

The mum had the fried kway teow

…with a special request for it to be extra spicy and indeed, it was…and she loved it!

I ordered this bowl of mutton curry…

…for my girl but she did not want it as she was quite happy with the two dips that came with her thosai so I had to eat it all myself together with my beef kampua

I only ordered that as I was quite sure she would not be able to finish both her thosai and I would have to help her with it. The kampua was good and I loved the complimentary sup tulang (beef bone soup)…

…that came with it. True enough, my girl managed one of the thosai completely and more than half of the other piece but that wasn’t much of a problem – I finished it all in no time at all.

I don’t have the breakdown of the prices for all our orders as when I went to pay the bill, the very nice boss, Guna, simply rounded it up and collected RM15.00 from me, inclusive of drinks.

SRI PELITA CAFE (2.293579, 111.820700) is located along Lorong Kampung Datu 11, off Jalan Kampung Datu, the first shop in the block to the right of Paramount Hotel.

  1. Only RM15 for all, that is a good deal. The thosai would be nice to go with the mutton curry. Fried kway teow & beef kampua are huge in portion. Indeed a fulfilling brunch.

    This is one of my favourite places in town when it comes to Indian/Muslim food, just that we do not go all that often or else I would have nothing to blog about. Some good stuff they have here and the boss, Guna, is very nice too.

  2. RM15 is cheap! Wow!

    I did not know they have halal kampua there. Went for its roti telur and fried noodle before. And I could remember the curry mutton. Tasty and tender.

    Yes, so very cheap indeed…and their halal kampua is good – I didn’t mind going for it again but of course, there is no lard taste in theirs. πŸ˜€

  3. Found something similar to Kampua on my recent trip to Medan… they called it mie pangsit but we were told that we were supposed to pour the soup to the noodles :/

    The Filipinos call their noodles pansit too, dunno how similar theirs is. Our pian sip is our version of the wanton, something quite different.

    Some people do pour the soup on the noodles especially when feeding kids – I wouldn’t do that, would rather order the soup version, nice too – in lovely clear bone soup.

  4. Aiya don’t say like that, Melissa is going back to her school.. not jungle lar.. hehehe

    It is, a school and it is in the jungle – the nearest pekan (little town) is half an hour away, trees all around, a sprinkling of longhouses along the way and our inter-town trunk road is nothing like the highways you have over at your side. Even the roads in our town are not as good, what more to say this narrow two-lane one, one coming and one going, through the jungle to the next town some 3-4 hours away.

    Still, consider us lucky, she does not have to use a sampan up some stream or walk in mud deep roads to get to her school. Her bond ends in July – she probably will resign and see what she can do instead, if she does not get her transfer. A loss to the education world, I would say – not that she’s my daughter – but she is very hardworking, very dedicated and serious in her work, follow everything to the letter…not like her father last time. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  5. Mmmm…that fried koay teow looks delicious! Since your missus loves extra spicy food, I wonder if she takes those small red cili padi that are tremendously hot.

    Of course, she does! I am not a fan as it is just hot, it does not have the fragrance of ordinary chili so sometimes we mix the two for that extra kick.

  6. RM15 with all the above + drinks….its really cheap!
    the fried kuey teow looks yummy n moist.

    Yes, so cheap and the kway teow was good, my missus enjoyed it.
