“Where to eat?” “You and me” “Huh? I’m asking where not who” , Yah, we’re going You and Me”.
Having been there for more than a few times, they’re really consistent with their quantity and quality, as well as service, though the environment might be lacking slightly, because the seats outside are very limited, and the inside is pretty stuffy. And oh yeah, their Ais Kosong,(Iced water) is free and its self-service.
Let’s cut to the chase, chow time! I’ve tried various dishes here, be it ala carte, or from their special menu. Let’s start with the very simple Nasi Ayam Daun Pandan (Pandan Leaf Chicken Rice).
The fragrance of the rice intrigued me at first, followed by the sauce provided, but the chicken itself was well, above average, but combined with the sauce, the taste was greatly enhanced. Best part? Its only RM5! (ONLY RM5! Where can you find such pricings?)
Second time round, I tried out two dishes from their ala carte menu, Sayur Campur (Mixed Vegetables) and Sotong Petai (Squid with Petai).
Served piping hot, smell of Petai (warning! The smell and taste of Petai is subjective to everyone, I personally love it) was so strong I was drooling while taking a picture. The mixture of spice and ingredients were perfect, not to mention the serving provided was fulfilling and as always, on point.
Quoting my partner, “Those who can’t get Sayur Campur right fails to be a Malay Restaurant, but these are so on point I might just eat the bowl”. RM6 for Sotong Petai and RM3.50 for Sayur Campur, but rice is kinda pricey at RM1.50 per plate, but I’m not complaining here.
And then I got addicted, I had to have more! Looking at the special menu I ordered the most interesting dish, the Maggi Ketam (Crab Maggi Soup).
Awaiting I was, and holy frijoles, there it was, so grand, so majestic, served with a whole crab on the top, and a smell that just makes your mouth water. I had to, I just had to take a quick sip of the soup before starting to take a picture… Then ended up drinking 3 sips and a bite of the Maggi noodle then had to rearrange the food so I could quickly snap a picture. The soup is so savoury, so much flavour, as if you can feel the crabbiness in it. The spice is pretty hot, but nothing is going to stop me from drinking all of it with a lip getting swollen by the spiciness. The crab is so tender that the meat just falls off when you pull it. If only its served with vermicelli or plain white rice, because Maggi had a fried oil taste that I think might put off the taste, but still. 9.5/10 overall! RM8 ONLY!
Here you go, my ratings for the shop.
8/10 (very friendly, but that’s basically it)
9/10 (Honestly would give a 10, but I like room for improvement)
9.5/10 (Because Nasi Putih for RM1.50 is still kinda pricey)
6/10 (More fans would be nice, the mirrors creep me out)
Seriously, go try it, it is REALLY GOOD.
