A more comfy alternative to enjoying the Chef’s much-loved favourites
Not a cat in sight! XD

We interrupt our rants and raves on the foodventures in JB to bring you: THE HUMBLE CHEF CAFÉ!! (Just in case you can’t quite tell how excited we are about this place, we’ve caps-locked and bolded it, and added an extra exclamation mark for good measure).  

Honestly, who in Klang Valley has not heard of The Humble Chef? (If you are the 0.0069% of the people who just went “Who dat?” then read all about it here.) With a straightforward menu offering instant crowd favourites at unbelievably reasonable prices, THC (pandai2 jer buat acronym) is the go-to place for an affordably scrumptious dinner. The only minor problem though, being a highly popular place, is that it can get quite hard to find seats sometimes (so our stalking doesn’t seem so out of line now, does it?). So you have the unfortunate situation where you stand around waiting for someone to leave their table, and your stomach growls in agony as you watch all these happy people slurp away their freshly-cooked pastas. And plus, it’s only open for a few hours on certain nights.

With the café open, we can now enjoy all our favourite THC foods ANYTIME we want! (Okay, by anytime, we mean from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. from Mondays to Saturdays…) The café still offers the same simple menu of the truck version: Aglio Olios, Carbonaras, Pitas, Sandwiches and Omelettes. And yes, they still taste just as awesome as when we had them at the truck =) And yes, no price hikes are involved so you can still enjoy these foods at the prices that you’re used to! 

Chicken Aglio Olio (RM5)

Lamb Carbonara (RM5)

Lamb Omelette (RM2.50)

Lamb Pita (RM4)

Check out all that lamb-filled goodness! (Evidently, we love our lamb)

Something that we've never had back at the truck, which we are completely in love with now, is the Laksa Goreng (RM6)! It sounds intriguing enough, as the only laksa we've ever had is the kind served in gravy. The description merely said that the laksa noodles are stir-fried in soy sauce, with your choice of sea food or beef, but knowing THC's amazing ability to wow us with any dish, we gave this a go. 

When this plate of Laksa Goreng ended up on our table, 
we just knew it was going to be mind-blowing! 

The laksa appears to be very simply flavoured, but still manages to taste phenomenal! The glutinous-y texture of the noodles reminds us of loh she fun, and what we also love is the very juicy and tender pieces of beef! 

And for desserts: Vanilla Pudding
