Sunday best…

Like what I said in my post the other day, we shall go out somewhere every Sunday for a very nice lunch and last Sunday, we decided to drop by here.

The authentic North Indian chef had gone on leave and had gone back to his country for the whole of last month. We thought he would be back already and that was why we picked the place – my girl would have the mutton biryani from the Indian menu, nothing else. Unfortunately, he would only be back on the 18th of this month but there were a few things that he had taught the Indonesian chef to cook. Last year, I tried her fish curry biryani and though it was very nice, it just wasn’t the same, not like when the guy cooked it himself.

Nonetheless, that day, I threw caution to the wind and went ahead and ordered the mutton biryani (RM21.00)…

The curry was absolutely perfect, exactly like how the Indian guy would cook it. I heard that he had got ready the paste and herbs and everything before he left and all the Indonesian lady had to do was to cook.

The rice looked like it was a darker shade of orange…

…but it was nicely done as well and I enjoyed it very much.

My missus stuck to her usual kalio ayam (RM14.50)…

…as always with the rice and the mixed vegetables…

…by the side and I was quite relieved that this time around, she could finish all of it. Otherwise, she would force me to finish off one chunk of the chicken and when I had just finished my own order, I would end up feeling way too full and it somehow seemed to spoil my enjoyment of what would have been a delightful lunch.

My girl asked for  the mee nyemek goreng (RM13.50)…

…from the Indonesian menu and yes, it was very nice and she loved it.

The total, inclusive of drinks, came up to RM57.00 and the boss collected RM55.00 from me only. We sure would be back again soon…when the Indian chef had come back, I guess.

  1. I hope my cough will get better and I can enjoy briyani again, lol.

    Coughing again or this is a more recent one…or was it somebody else? I think that was Rose in Kuching. Hope it gets better soonest.

  2. All looks pretty good and though I am not into Indian cuisine, I don’t mind to try the mutton biryani.

    I love all these exotic Asian cuisines, would go for them instead of Chinese or western and all the rest.

  3. Mutton biryani for me anytime!

    The one’s here is really good – the rest in town are kind of watered-down, the rice likewise.

  4. The boss is so nice. mutton briyani for me too. you are right that being too full spoils the nice experience of having a tasty meal. That’s why now I will put food that I cannot finish inside my container for another meal and not force others to eat part of my portion unless we order the dishes to be shared by ordering less overall.

    I would suggest that but it all falls on deaf ears, everyone wants their own picks. Sometimes, we do ask them to pack what’s left for us to take home.

  5. A long leave from the chef. Sometimes they never come back. But hope this chef coming back soon.

    Nice lunch. Glad everyone enjoyed the dishes.

    This chef is o.k. He goes home every year and always comes back. The money is good!

  6. saw your title and thought it’s Sunday already! been down with influenza the whole week.. ><" the good thing is, i get to be OFF work for a week as well!

    kalio ayam, the colours look good. I would go for it too, if I was there.

    That’s Indonesian-style curry, very very nice!

    Oh dear! Take care, rest well, cut down your social activities!!! Hope you’re feeling much better now.

  7. i know mee jawa, but this is the first time i’ve learned of mee nyemek! 🙂

    I guess that is Indonesian. Now too sure if I’ve tried the mee jawa here before or not.
