In this corner…

This place…

…has been around for a long long time now. I vaguely remember it going by another name before and that one did not last too long before these people took over and they must be doing well or at least, well enough to be able to stand the test of time.

You may not be able to see the shop sign if you are driving past but you will not miss the name and logo…

…on the canopy/shade by the side of the shop.

For no apparent reason, I decided to check the place out so my missus and I dropped by the other morning for brunch. They have nasi campur

…and serving everything in those stainless buffet food warmers sure put them a cut above the rest where they would usually have a cabinet with mosquito-netting sliding doors or some plastic containers with covers. However, these would have a disadvantage as you would have to open the lids one by one to see what is inside. Nonetheless, I noticed that when they had a customer, one of the ladies would come and take off the lids…

…and once done, she would cover everything up again. Everything looked pretty good…

…but I was not in the mood for nasi campur that morning so I ordered their nasi lemak special (RM6.00)…

…instead. The regular is RM4.00 like the one I had the other day but I guess in the case of the one here, you will only get half an egg but the rice was very lemak (rich with santan/coconut milk), not quite up to the level that I’ve been looking for but it was definitely more lemak than all that I have had at other places all over town. The sambal was very nice, spicy…and for the special, you get to choose between fried chicken or chicken rendang, deboned…

…and of course, I chose the latter. It was really good – the gravy reminded me of the sambal that my friend’s wife prepared for her ayam percik when we were in the UK, 1994. I really enjoyed it! I sure wouldn’t mind coming back again for this…but they do have an elaborate menu, lots to choose from and I would love to try something else to see if there is anything else that is good.

My missus had one of the new items on their menu,  their ayam penyet (RM9.00)…

…which would have been great but the sambal

…which reminded me of my sambal udang kering/hay bee (dried prawns) was way too salty even when mixed with the meat and the rice. I hope it was because we caught them on a wrong day for if it is going to be so so salty all the time, I do think it would be best to give this a miss.

SARAH ISLAMIC CORNER, the first shop in the block opposite A-PLUS FOOD CENTRE/RESTAURANT (2.293355, 111.823653), is located among the shops along Jalan Kampung Datu, behind the block of shops (where Fair Price Supermarket is) near the traffic lights at its junction with Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg and Jalan Kampung Nyabor.
