The other…

My girl wanted biryani rice for lunch that day so of course, we made our way back to that same ol’ place, our favourite in town when it comes to Indian or Indonesian cuisines.

The previous time we were here, she had it with their Indian butter tandoori chicken so this time, she had the other favourite of hers…

– the masala mutton/lamb and biryani rice combination (RM21.00).

She also ordered this cheese aloo gobi naan (RM12.00)…

…with the lovely mashed cauliflower and potato filling to share.

The mum wanted the tandoori garlic naan (RM5.00)…

…and she asked for the aforementioned  butter tandoori chicken (RM15.50)…

…to go with it.

I decided to try something from the Indonesian menu and ordered the ayam bakar berempah rice (RM14.50)...

The chicken was very nice, very different from the ayam berempah at the Malay shops and stalls – theirs are dry whereas this one had a lovely coating of its very delightful sauce. I let my girl try and yes, she agreed that it was very nice too.

We were still seated inside owing to the SOP requirements and taking snapshots in the dim conditions can be quite challenging. I tried using the torch in my antique smartphone and it did not turn out too bad – a lot nicer than trying to shoot in the dark, I must say.

My girl insisted on picking up the tab and the bill came up to RM74.00 but the nice and generous boss gave her RM30.00 change for the RM100.00 that she paid.

The CAFE IND (2.290813, 111.829294) is located along Laichee Lane, right behind one block of shops facing the main road (Jalan Kampung Nyabor) where the Bank Simpanan Nasional, Sibu branch (2.290561, 111.829071), is.

  1. I agreed that most ayam berempah served are dry. I prefer moist chicken myself.

    A nice lunch, I don’t mind such cuisine once in a while.

    Not cheap, once in a while is fine, not too often.

  2. I like ayam berempah and I do come across a Malay stall in Samarahan area which served very nice ayam berempah. Yes, I agree mostly ayam berempah are served dry and this one you had looks much different. Best part is great food with good discount.

    Yes, no point if the food is cheap but it is not nice. Worse if it is expensive. Always happy with what we have here.

  3. Wow you are even given discounts. VIP indeed. 😀 The ayam berempah looks good. I wonder how the naan is compared to Melaka’s most famous roti naan.

    Should be pretty much the same if cooked in the traditional Indian stone oven. You would have a lot of choices, lots of Indians over there, not like here.

  4. What a satisfying meal! I would enjoy that cheese naan with cauliflower and potato filling.

    I guess that is vegetarian if you’re fine with cheese.
