I’m still good…

We have been going out quite a bit in the morning, spending quality time together now that my girl is home for the long mid-year break, and we will have our lunch outside before heading back to the house. Dinner is usually at home especially now that lately, it has been raining mid-afternoon right through the evening. Pity the people at the pasar malam (night market) and the Ramadan bazaars – I am sure their business will be adversely affected to some extent.

We have not been here for quite a while for no particular reason whatsoever – we just didn’t but that day, we decided to drop by as it was one of the places along the way where we do enjoy what they have on their menu, most of the time, at least. They have a lot of new things – some Japanese delights but we did not feel like giving them a try. At this point in time, there is this promotion – you buy two of their crispy chicken (2 pieces) rice and you can get one free but I guess that is not gluten-free as the crispy chicken would be coated with batter and deep-fried.

My girl stuck to her smoked chicken rice, drumstick (RM5.50)…

…and it was so good we could detect the fragrance of the rice the moment it was served. The typical chicken rice chili dip was really good too that day – extra spicy.

My missus wanted the mee mamak but I said she had that before and it was not that great (but looking through my old post on it, I found out that it was actually quite good) so she went back to her favourite here – the ayam penyet rice (RM9.80)…

…and she was praising the chicken to the skies – so well-fried, crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside, a lot nicer than the ones here, she said.

I had their ais kacang/iced red bean (RM3.00)…

…before and it was very good the first time, disappointing the 2nd time…and this time around, I would just say it was so-so. I wish they had added more santan/evaporated milk and gula Melaka (palm sugar) instead of the rose syrup which I am not a fan of. Thankfully, they did not add a lot so it was not all that strong.

This was one of the new things that they have, the nasi lemak beef rendang (RM8.50)…

…and that was what I had that day. My missus said she had the nasi lemak before and it was not anything she would want to have again and I could see why. The rice did not have any of the much-coveted fragrance and taste of santan but thankfully, the rendang was really good and the spicy sambal

…too, if only they had been a bit more generous with it. I wonder if I can request for more – they do oblige at some places but you will have to pay for it, around 50 sen or RM1.00.

Despite the rice being most disappointing, I did enjoy my order as a whole…

…and I sure would not mind going for it again the next time we stop by here.

  1. Your beef rendang looked good. I prefer more fragrant rice but mostly only have that slight fragrant.

    Ayam Penyet. Still my favourite but I prefer the chicken been smashed and they added coconut grate on top. Hehe. Not everyone doing it nowadays.

    Yes, the kerisik. They do not seem to give that here but it is ok, the sambal is nice enough and the organic chicken has an edge over other types of chicken.

  2. Among the three choices, I would go for the smoked chicken rice and ayam penyet. For Chicken rice, good chilli dipping is the most important thing.

    Organic chicken from their own farm, very nice the meat…not like some places where the texture and freshness/taste of the chicken may not be to one’s satisfaction.

  3. Good to hear that you all are spending quality time together as a family. I will have a helping each from all 3 dishes that you have shown here as nowadays I prefer eating bits of different tastes instead of full meals.

    We only do that at Payung, order a few dishes and then we all share.

  4. The chicken looks good (first photo), i believe the chili dip works great with it too

    Yes, both good, one place that is worth stopping by for a bite.

  5. you are better than good, you’re still great! Makan-makan together, happy together 🙂

    Gotta make the most of the quality time we get to spend together – can;t do that on school days except on weekends.

  6. There’s a place near me that sells very nice nasi lemak and rendang. About $11, if I remember correctly.

    Oh my! Not cheap, eh? Even without conversion…but as long as it is very nice, it’s fine. Value for money.

  7. ooo, the weather’s been quite different in kl – for the past couple of weeks, it has mostly stopped raining in the late afternoon / early evening, so the pasar ramadan should all be thriving!

    That would be nice to go and walk around, nice and cool. Wish it were like that here.

  8. Among the three, the ayam penyet is the expensive one there… Your nasi lemak has more condiments…. indeed all the three orders looks good and it would be much better with more greens to go with them. 🙂

    Ayam penyet is always more expensive than nasi lemak, dunno why and those are all the “ulam” you will get – they do not give a lot. Nasi lemak, they always give those few slices of cucumber, the SOP…and usually, you will get the same with chicken rice…unless like in Ipoh, you go and order a separate plate of taugeh and pay extra for it, of course!
