One week later…

One week after our first visit to this place

Penyet Delta
*Archive photo*

…we dropped by there again.

I made the mistake of choosing the table right beside the counter with this loudspeaker…


…sitting on top of it, blasting some Malay rock songs at full volume. I tried turning it but it was fixed to the spot. One of the boys came and turned down the volume a little, just a little and I thought it was still too loud.

It made me wonder as to why people play music at eateries – to entertain their customers or themselves. Later, somebody came and changed the selection to some Malay rap songs, each one of them a mash-up with one of the popular hits from days gone by. I thought the voice in the first one sounded like Jamal Abdillah but I was not too sure as I didn’t know that song. After that, this one came on. Good grief! How could they do that to the beautiful Juara Lagu Song of the Year 1986 by Francissca Peter!!! Tsk! Tsk! That certainly got me quite pissed off, really!

My missus had their mee goreng (RM4.00)…

…and it was way too salty, so much so that she could barely finish half of it.

The roti canai stall was open…

…so I ordered their roti telur (RM2.00)…

…which was all right but I thought the roti canai kosong (RM1.30)…

…was really good with its thin, crispy layers and nice fragrance and the dhal dip was thick and rich, very much to my liking.

After they reassured me that the beef balls were homemade, not those smelly frozen ones from the supermarket, I decided to order their bakso

…to give it (RM3.50)…

…a try.

Yes, the beef balls were very nice, none of the repulsive smell that the frozen ones would have, but I wish the soup had a stronger beef taste. Well, at least, it was very mild and light, no overdose of salt and msg, and to my liking but I made the mistake of squeezing the calamansi lime provided in an attempt to bring a taste to a whole new level and it absolutely ruined it – I did not like the taste after that so I just left most of it uneaten.

Well, like I said in my earlier post, “we certainly would be dropping by time and time again as it is round the corner from my mum’s house, very convenient for us.”

PENYET DELTA (2.307969, 111.825223) is located at No.14, Lorong Delta 10, off Jalan Delta, right behind the Delta Swimming Pool, right beside the Delta Seafood & Cafe.

  1. That’s a huge portion for the mee goreng. The noodles used in bakso looks like maggi mee and it looks pretty good.

    Too bad it was too salty. The bakso was all right, just don’t squeeze the lime – I did not like it after that. The soup was kind of bland too, would have loved a strong beef taste.

  2. The music mostly to entertain the staff. Haha.

    I must prefer a quiet eatery place with soft music. Nothing to hurt the eardrums. And get to enjoy my food in peace and able to talk without shouting. ^^

    I just had mee goreng in our current mamak shop last night. Full of msg. Gosh. First time it was good. Yesterday was overdose of seasoning. Hardly could finish it.

    They would need better quality control, many of these places – can’t leave it to chance, one day good and another day not good. I don’t mind if there is no music at all, anytime better than those Malay rock songs, macam cekik hantu! Such a pain to the ears!

  3. Environmental noise is just as bad as air pollution in my opinion.

    Go placidly amidst the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence… (DESIDERATA)

  4. I also dislike noisy restaurants. Some places here have no soft surfaces like carpet or drapes and the noise of people talking reverberate and go through the roof.

    Yes, there was one place here, very nice food and reasonable prices but I always avoided going as it was always full and with its low ceiling, the noise was unbearable! Thankfully, they moved to a new place, bigger and the ceiling is not so low so we do drop by quite regularly.

  5. The roti telur attracts me… so neatly done and crispy looking too! Worth going back for more!

    Yes, I thought it looked nice and neat and yes, it was nice – lovely egg taste but between the two, I liked the roti canai more.

  6. Roti Telur specailly with sambal is the one I really miss, my normal snack item back in Malaysia

    I know on other place here where it retains its crispiness. This one tasted great but was not crispy.
