Let’s go celebrate…

That was what I had in mind when I wanted to go for the nice dim sum here for breakfast after the Easter Sunday church service the other day but it looked like there was quite a crowd there and we went some place else instead. What we had in the end did not turn out to be something out of the ordinary, hardly anything one would go for to celebrate anything for that matter.

Feeling kind of disappointed, I told my girl we would go out for dinner that night and I would let her choose where she wanted to go and what she would like to eat. In the end, she picked one of our favourite places in town

…and of course, she wanted their authentic Indian mutton masala biryani rice (RM21.00)…

She sure enjoyed that and she managed to finish all the rice! She could not finish all the meat in the curry though so I had to help her with a chunk or two.

I also had something from their Indian menu, the tandoori chicken with biryani rice (RM18.00)…

…and it was good. The gravy that came with it went well with the rice and I enjoyed the chicken on its own, not mixed with the gravy or the rice. That way, I could enjoy the subtle flavours of the marinades used to cook the chicken to perfection, nice and tender. I am never a fan of raita though so I just gave what I got by the side to my girl – she loves it a lot and finished all of it in no time at all.

I am quite sure everybody can guess what my missus had – the Indonesian kalio ayam (RM14.50)…

…and as usual, she could only manage one chunk of the chicken. I tried to help her finish the other chunk but she had asked for it to be super extra spicy and it was way too spicy for me. I felt that the over-spiciness drowned out the niceness of the curry so in the end, I just left what was left of the chicken by the side of the plate.

All in all, that was a pleasant dinner, the bill came up to RM67.50 altogether inclusive of drinks, and I was glad that we did get to celebrate Easter, after all,  in a small way.
