It’s been many years since I have been here. To be honest, I don’t really recall the exact location of this place until a friend mentioned about this place recently. So I decided to check out what is the hype all about.
The location is pretty easy to find. This place is located at the back of Lincoln College in Taman Mayang. There is no clear signage of this place but you can spot a restaurant with lots of tables arranged on the corridor. Apparently it can get really busy here however as usual I got here pretty early for dinner on a weekday so it was not crowded at all.
There is no menu handed out at this place. You can check out the menu which is written on the green board in the restaurant. This is not a ‘mamak’ restaurant. The owner is a Chinese who servers halal / pork free food. This place has been around for many years now. As recommend by my friends we ordered soda herbs, seafood fried rice with soft shell crab, cheese naan with dips and friend noodle with garlic butter grilled chicken.
The soda herb is served in a big mug, perhaps a full pint size. I would say you can share with this drink with 2 or 3 person. So what drink is this? Its ice cream soda drink, fresh local herbs, asam boi and lychee.
The seafood fried rice with soft shell crab is nice. The fried rice is fried with seafood and seasoned with kicap (soy sauce). The soft shell crab is deep fried so it’s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
The cheese naan bread is served with variety of dips such as butter, caramel, coffee and chocolate sauce. This dips goes really well with the cheese naan. I quite like this.
The noodle with garlic butter grilled chicken was alright. The fried noddle tasted plain (with soy sauce) and lots of pepper. I didn’t really enjoy this.
The portion of the food and drinks is large or some might say x-large portion. I would strongly advise you to check with staff so that you don’t over order. This is a normal restaurant with no air conditioning and with mostly outdoor seating.
