It's been quite some time since I posted on Malay food. Call it bad planning but my internal schedules have kinda gone haywire with me being away from home. I'm slowly adapting to home so bear with me as I still owe all of you the index.
Here's a new place at Plaza Damansara - Pekan Kopitiam which we stumbled upon one night when searching for food. The name of the coffeeshop refers to the town Pekan which is where the owner is from but it serves a mish mash of Malay food. During lunch time, there's various types of dishes and curries laid out but at night, you need to order from the menu. Since it's pretty new, the food seems to be evolving. We tried this interesting Kelantan Royalty Murtabak (RM4). Made by someone who used to work at the Kelantan palace, the murtabak is unusual as it's thicker with a double layer. It's also crispy on the outside and kinda reminds me of a stuffed french toast. Tastewise it's pretty good and the filling is not too dry while I like the crispy outside.
They also have various types of Fried Rice here but I tried the unusual Nasi Goreng Ladna (RM5). This type of fried rice is accompanied by the sauce which is similar to the Cantonese Style Noodles except in this case it's not so starchy. This version is quite nice and spicy with lots of chopped chili padi.
We also ordered a portion of Keropok Lekor (RM2) to try - not bad and nice eaten piping hot with the chili sauce. I almost burnt my tongue eating this as it was so hot.
Aside from these items, you can order various fried dishes here. Note the menu is not complete hence ask the waiter or waitress to recommend what are the other dishes for you. On another topic, note that Hartamas Shopping Centre is having their Taste of Japan fair this weekend till early June 2007. There's not much as it's mostly selling the same items like Meiji chocolates, Sake, Calpyso drinks, Pocky Chocolate and etc which is available at the Japanese shop there.

(Halal. The kopitiam is near the 7 Eleven but at the next block. The shop is located at the corner.)
