Do not judge a book by it’s cover

Walking down James street returning from a team lunch last week, I noticed a menu in a window stating Malaysian Food, not knowing there was even a restaurant there, I noted nothing other than the location vowing to return later as I really enjoy good malaysian food.

On return I found a little nondescript cafe in front of a combination pool hall/karaoke space. Not deterred, I checked the menu in the window out, it was rather long and had all the usual malaysian/singaporean food I adore, so I entered and ordered a personal favourite Kway Teow.

The service was good and fast, my meal was with me was me in a few minutes, while you could not see the kitchen from the cafe, you could hear the cooking as the ingredients meeting a very hot wok. The serving was generous, looked great and tasted good. I have eaten Kway Teow many times and while it did not match my personal favourites from Tak Chee & the now defunct Singapore Indian Malaysian Cuisine it came close, beating everyone else.

The ingredients where fresh, not overcooked, with all the right spices and with the slightly greasy peppery after taste I expected. Not enough chilli for my taste, however, cut chilli was provided. I will be definitely be going back to explore more from the menu. A likely candidate for a regular lunch spot, good food, fast service and cheap at $9.60 (with current 20% off introductory offer).
