Carb-loading with Go Gourmet, kicking off with Chinese fried rice. Nicely laden with chicken, crab, anchovies & salted egg but completely lacked ‘wok hei.’
More “nasi goreng,” served with Thai “weeping tiger,” or grilled rib-eye beef. Respectably tender meat, but the rice failed to pull its own weight, bordering on bland.
The Malay nasi ulam fared better, with deliciously boneless “ayam percik.”
Pad Thai. Well-executed; not the best ever, but piquantly satisfactory.
Kuey teow with beef slices & balls. Lots of succulent meat & bouncy balls for merely 14 ringgit, but to nitpick, the broth seemed deluged with sodium.
Turning Japanese: chicken katsu don, featuring rice topped with crisply breaded chicken & egg. Tasty enough to pass muster at most Japanese outlets.
Chicken miso ramen. Not bad, but with so many ramen specialists sprouting up in KL nowadays, this is only worthwhile if you can’t reach a real restaurant.
Ending it all: seafood kuey teow. Will fill the tummy, won’t wow the taste buds.
