I read about Nambawan on the blog scene and most if not all has been good, to ignorant old me, the name  had a sanskrit  ring to it or somehow related to the infamous Namewee until I realise it was ‘No.1’ in disguise.

Apart from the good food, one other comments from the blogs was that it could be a long wait until one get to be fed. With that in mind, we ‘cushioned’ our belly before we head towards Taman Seri Manja that Saturday evening. Parking was a bit of a problem but after a while we managed to find a vacant lot.

We took a table near the back  of the Cafe and studied the menu, although we already had some ideas on what we were going to have even before starting the journey. The menu include but not limited to the following :

Pasta ( RM 8.90)  : Bolognese, Amatriciana, tomatoes and meatballs, squid and prawns, cheese and mushroom, cabonara and meatball Grovalax

Fish (RM 8.90) : Pan fried white fish, fish in tomato and cheese, fish and chips tartar sauce, Charboil white fish and pesto

Chicken ( RM9.90) : the menu include Pan fried chest chicken, pan fried chicken and beacon roll, crumb chicken chop, chicken in tomato sauce and cheese.

Beef and lamb : black pepper charboil tenderloin / striploin, winesauce charboil tenderloin, Grovalax charboil tenderloin/ striploin and mushroom charboil tenderloin/striploin, grilled lamb couscous onion sauce ( RM14.90) , grilled lamb butter mint sauce ( RM14.90) , mixed grill platter ( RM24.90) .

Pork and sausage : Stone charboil pork belly / pork fillet, crumb pork chop, roast pork belly. Oxford English pork sausage

Sandwich and burger ( RM 6:90 – 9.90)  : club sandwich, Beacon lettuce and tomato fill roll, grilled steak sandwich, Ciabatta, Pesto Grilled chicken, 100% home made beef /pork burger.

Fresh fruit juice ( RM3.90) : Sour plum, orange, lemon, watermelon , apple or pineapple

Midway through studying the menu, the waitress handed us an A4 paper with  a handwritten list for  ‘specials for the day’  which included soup and Roast pork ribs.

I decided to go for watermelon juice and roast pork belly (RM14.90) , Chunny ordered pineapple juice and roast pork ribs ( RM25.90). and we get ourselves ready for a long wait. But hey, there was no long wait, the food arrived in reasonable time , we didn’t time it , but I guess it was between 15 – 20 minutes.

Our drinks : big mugs of fresh juice and they were nice and thick, Yummy..well worth the RM3.90

Roast pork belly : when this dish arrived, I was stunned by the many laters of fat… much fat one lerr..but that was what pork belly is supposed to be. I can’t get myself to eat the layers of fat ( I sincerely apologize to Nambawan for this wastage ) so, I  had to cheat and ‘dissected’ the lean from the fat. Mama mia…this was exquisite, the meat was so tender and  lightly flavoured with a tinge of herbs. The charred crunchy skin was to die for….love it , love it…

Roast Pork ribs : the ribs were served on a pile of chips sans sauce, which caused a bit of a concern that it might be a bit dry, but all doubts evaporated like dew drops on the daun keladi after we bit into the ribs…the meat was soft  and succulent yet with  a bit of bite,  well marinated and with  a coat of gooey sweetish sauce . this was superb..we raved about this for ages and ages…the pig didn’t die in vain…

 An excellent meal…we will return to try out the much hyped about pork burger and the sausages..and the crows roared ‘ Nambawan, Nambawan, Nambawan… ‘
