Here’s sharing some of the things that they had to offer for lunch/dinner:

Chef Style Marinated on Pegaga and Ulam Raja Salad, Mango Sambal and Jamaican Plum Sauce. This is basically the Thai mango salad. But instead of having the full flavour of Thai mango salad that we are used to, this version of mango salad is a bit tone down on the taste and served with plump and juicy scallops. There are no overwhelming spiciness with a mere slight tanginess. Great for those who can’t tolerate spicy food.

Malay Style Chicken Soup-with a combination of Malay spices and minced chicken. Mildly flavoured, the soup is somewhat comforting on the tummy.

4 fine traditional Malay dishes for our gastronomic pleasure: Braised King Prawns in Cumin andCoriander Gravy, Ayam Masak Lemak Nangka, Rendang Daging and Pucuk Paku Goreng Cili.

Udang Masala/Braised King Prawns in Cumin-Coriander Gravy. Similar to the appetizer and the soup, this dish is not heavily flavoured too. Great to go on it’s own or a plate of piping hot rice.

Ayam Masak Lemak Nangka is one of my favourite dish over here. The spiciness is just right for me and I had a few helpings of this with my plate of Briyani rice.

Rendang Daging was strongly flavoured and the meat was really tender. Another one of my favourite that day.

Pucuk Paku Goreng Cili. I did not manage to have a taste of this as it was gone within minutes when it was placed on the table, so I guess this was good as well.

Nasi Briyani was served to be paired with all of the dishes served. We also had a choice of plain white rice to go with all the traditional Malay dishes.

Warm Black Glutinuos Rice with Coconut, Palm Sugar and Almond Flakes. No course meal would be complete without dessert. And here’s a sweet ending to our meal; Warm Black Glutinuos Rice with Coconut, Palm Sugar and Almond Flakes. I was abit reluctant to have a taste of this at first as I’m not a huge fan of sweet stuff, but I’m glad I gave it a try as this was not cloyingly sweet and acceptable to my palate.
