Last weekend, we were at Shah Alam viewing Ms. C and Mr. D's house which is currently under renovation. Great work by the contractor so far, very neat and tidy and hopefully it gets done by early December so we can have our yearly Christmas party there. We were all hungry and thirsty so we wanted to eat around Shah Alam. Now for those of you who know Shah Alam, you will understand that somehow that place seems to lack good places to eat. Not sure why but I even know people who drive all the way back to Petaling Jaya for their meals. For the non-Malaysians, this is like driving about 30 minutes to one hour (on the highway) from your house just for a meal.
This time round, Ms. C said she knew of a restaurant that her work colleagues took her to (she is now working on a project around Kelana Jaya). So we sped away there as we were all very hungry and thirsty and reached there within fifteen minutes. Although the place has no air-conditioner, it was pretty breezy. As we were all so parched (it was a very hot day!), we quickly ordered coconut water, cincau(grass jelly) and lime juice to quench our thirst.
Although there was six of us, only four of us was eating so we ordered five dishes such as the Thai Fried Chicken. The dish was not too bad, coated with a sticky sweetish and spicy sauce.
Usually when you go to restaurants like this, they will ask you what vegetables you want which you choose from a selection they have. We chose the kailan which was plain fried with some chilli and garlic.
We had this hot plate tofu with sauce and an egg. Not too bad as the tofu was pillow soft even though it has been deep fried.
Essential stuff when you go to a Thai restaurant was their Kerabu Mango (Malay for Mango Salad). This was not too bad but was not too spicy.
Then we had some Sotong Goreng (Malay for fried calamari) which had very little calamari but lots of floury batter. Not as good as our all time favourite one at Muhibbah but the batter for this one was pretty light.
I would rate the food here to be pretty good (for Shah Alam standards) except the sotong goreng. Considering that Shah Alam has a lack of good food places, this is definitely a place you can visit when you are within that area to get a pretty decent meal.
