I was craving for some asam pedas the other day, and yet when I looked into my refrigerator, I couldn’t find enough ingredients to cook Asam Pedas. No belacan, no chilli, no dried shrimp, etc. And so, I decided to just satisfy my cravings by going to an Asam Pedas restaurant somewhere nearby Jalan Genting Klang’s Golf range.
It was okay… not that great… nothing I really can shout about in comparison to my mum’s and my late grandma’s. Was rather oily and not sourish enough… but I finished it up nevertheless cuz I’ve been really craving for it.
Goes very well with sliced omelet…
And plain rice with a side of ulam and sambal belacan.
The asam pedas set cost me Rm6.50. Not too bad, huh? At least I managed to satisfy my cravings and I did not have to slave around in the kitchen for hours for these.
