Well, obviously they were not back in full swing yet after the fasting month of Ramadan and the Hari Raya Festival celebration as they did not have their nasi campur…
…that day when we dropped by here for lunch and we were not the only ones – so many came and asked and they left when they found out that they were not serving that just yet. Others did what we did – we sat down and ordered some things from the regular menu.
I had their nasi ayam penyet goreng (RM7.50)…
…which had some kind of sauce that had a slight hint of rojak sauce on the chicken…
…and all in all, I would say, it was all right. There are others elsewhere that would have an edge over this one here.
My missus had their nasi paprik seafood (RM7.50)…
…which was quite nice – I could not place my finger on the taste, something like masak merah perhaps.
They gave one big prawn…
…and a whole lot of sotong (squid), no fish.
According to the boys, the chef had gone home to Indonesia for Hari Raya and would be back in action starting the very next day. Well, we would drop by some other day for the nasi campur but I can’t say right now when exactly that would be.

I would have had the chicken even without the sauce! 🙂
I bet you would – you love chicken.
I was about to ask the same question as above as I didn’t see any rice. Ayam penyet with a hint of rojak sauce, how does it taste? I like the sauce with a bit of belacan taste.
Ayam penyet, the sambal is very important – it has to be the nice. The ayam is just fried chicken, clobbered. My favourite is the one at Bandong here, they wrap the rice in banana leaf, steamed, tastes so good.
Hari Raya is a month of celebration. Some operating after 2 weeks of Raya over here.
I love ayam penyet with lots of ulam at the side. Yours only that 2 slices of cucumber??
There was a bit of cabbage under the cucumber but yes, generally, I would get a lot more elsewhere.
Yes, some close one month after Raya, one month for the whole of Ramadan. I guess they have better quality of life, their laid-back, slow and simple way of life – it’s not always about money, no need to be a slave to it. Some people worked all their lives to stack up a fortune but did not live to enjoy it.
amazingly it’s still the season of aidilfitri open houses for another two or three days … the hari raya month feels like it’s stretched on for very long this year!
Traditionally, Chinese New Year lasts for 15 days only, till Chap Goh Meh. 1 month is a long time.
