Don’t be late, don’t come too soon…

I was early that morning, around 9.00 a.m. and I was thinking of having the sup tulang (beef bone soup) with noodles for breakfast but I guess that was way too soon and I was told that it was not available yet. It would be ready by around 11.00 a.m. but no, I did not want to go off some place and come back all the way again.

I could have the eat-all-you-can porridge (RM4.00)…

Eat all you can porridge

…but I did not feel like it plus the condiments did not look all that exciting.

They have a roti canai stall…

…in front now, run by the two ladies and I decided to order one (RM1.20)…

Roti canai 1

…to try.

It did not look all that great, something like those frozen homemade ones that we can buy and fry our own at home but I guess it was because they did not squeeze it from the sides like what I would see them doing at most, if not all, other stalls because it was perfectly all right…

Roti canai 2

…inside, exactly how a roti canai should be.

They gave this curry dip…

…with it, not the usual dhal one, and I just poured it all onto the roti…

…and ate. I guess that would be what my blogger friend, Merryn, would do – she calls it roti canai banjir (flooded).

I asked what I could order at that time of day and was told that they had the usual halal kampua or kolo mee and the fried stuff and no, they do not have nasi lemak here. In the end, I settled for a plate of fried mee (RM5.00)…

Mee goreng 1

…which I thought was a bit pricey especially when it was not a very big plate and I did not think there was much in it, no sign of any chicken or beef…

Mee goreng 2

…but yes, it was all right, just that it was not anything to get me rushing back for more.

However, the complimentary beef soup…

…was so so good, really thick and rich and bursting with flavours. I sure enjoyed that a lot!

No, the nasi campur was not ready yet – that is the thing about this place, it seems. Do not come too soon…and don’t come too late either. We came a bit later that day and the dishes for the eat-all-you-can buffet lunch were running out and it did not look like there was going to be any refill. Those who came even later than us had to make do with whatever there was left.

DAPUR AZRA (2.308398, 111.819744) is located at the shops at Simpang Tiga, along Lorong Kuda 2, back to back with Bisonte Grocer & Deli, facing Jalan Kampung Nangka and the road leading to the one-time ferry point.

  1. The chap fan places here are like thar too. Go too late and most dishes would be almost finished.

    As the English proverb goes, it’s the early bird that catches the worm…but it looks like one must not be too early!

  2. I prefer to cut the roti canai into bite size and dip it in the dipping instead of pouring all onto the roti.The fried mee looks good. That bowl of complimentary beef soup is thick enough but looks a bit oily.

    No, not really but I do not like the supermarket fried shallots – most if not all the Malay places will use those – so I quickly fished them out before the smell that I am not fond of got into the soup. Other than that, there was a lot of residue – obviously they did not sieve the soup while simmering…so I could not lick the bowl clean.

  3. It does look like those frozen roti because I always buy for the kids. The beef soup looked thick.

    Very nice, the soup…but I was wondering why they could serve the soup but could not serve the sup tulang noodles…till 11.

  4. Yeah, some eateries are like that. You have to come at the right time or be disappointed. This time you didn’t eat your roti canai the elegant way 🙂

    No, I did it the Merryn way! Muahahahahaha!!!

  5. I also prefer to cut into bite size and dip into the dipping…

    I usually do that. Too lazy that day, try different way for a change. Who knows it may be better?

  6. wonder if azra is one of the two ladies you caught in action in your photo 🙂

    No, neither one of the two is Azra. Azra’s younger and more beautiful, would be busy in the main kitchen cooking, I think and if I remember correctly, she doesn’t wear a tudung, like Tun’s wife.

  7. I just had craving for roti prata that night and I had it for supper, one plain (Kosong) and one egg. Yums!

    Yes, it is called roti prata in Singapore, not a very healthy things – I hear the dough is soaked in oil overnight and a lot more oil is used in the cooking.
