Ever watched a P. Ramlee film and crave that beef steak he's having in one of those restaurants with them private booths? Well, we've found just the place for you!
The booths surprisingly keep a lot of the restaurant noise out, and are great for chats over a simple meal. Menu is straight-forward here, with the Chicken Chop (RM8) and Beef Steak (RM10) bearing the most prominence.
The chicken chop is amazingly moist and has such a distinctively delicious batter. It's not crunchy but instead is very soft and sort of melded into the chicken. The lovely auntie who currently runs the restaurant fills us in that their recipes have not been changed in any way and the dishes are prepared exactly the way her father-in-law first taught her all those years ago.
When was the last time you had beef steak that required absolutely no usage of a knife? The beef steak is absolutely tender and juicy under a coating of the same chicken chop batter.
We decided to give their Nasi Goreng (RM5) a try and were blown away by it! Absolutely loved how fluffy and light it is, simply fried with chicken, eggs and scallions.
