This restaurant came recommended from a friend so we thought of trying it one night since we were around the area. We arrived a little after dinner time and to our surprise, there was quite a crowd there already. So we automatically assume that the food would be very good. However service was kind of bad - but I am giving them the benefit of a doubt since the crowd was rather overwhelming. Especially for a restaurant their size. But still, it took all of us five minutes each to catch a waiter's
However service was kind of bad - but I am giving them the benefit of a doubt since the crowd was rather overwhelming. Especially for a restaurant their size. But still, it took all of us five minutes each to catch a waiter's attention. When we finally got someone to take our order, we just speed ordered cause all of us were dying of hunger already. I specially ordered the Salted Egg fried Pumpkin. This dish is supposedly a favourite of mine bcause I've had it elsewhere and it's just super delicious, plus I can never say no to salted egg yolk anything. However it wasn't as good as I expected cause there was not much salted egg yolk flavour and the pumpkin was still hard, although mostly crispy on the outside from being deep fried. Everyone else liked it but personally was not really that good to me. Just for something to munch on before the actual food arrived, we got the chicken feet kerabu salad. It was just as one would expect it to be - cold, crunchy, spicy and sour. Though honestly there isn't much to shout about this dish except it was good enough to keep us sated before the food arrived. Then finally the main dish arrived and it was the bean paste steamed tilapia. My favourite way of having fresh fish is steamed and most of the time is with this seasoning. Although the first two dishes were only so-so, the fish was surprisingly good. The meat was nice & juicy especially the cheeks which I attacked before anyone else got the chance to.
Out of everything we tried from them, I liked the fish the most and would happily go back just to have it again. However I will consider that only because of the crowd & somewhat subpar service.
