Dinner..the following day… Options were : Kampung Air Seafood Centre or Restoran Sri Melaka, we left the decision to the Muslim colleagues and after scrutinizing both the areas- the decision was to dine at Restoran Sri Melaka
All the tables at the ground floor were occupied and the waitress led us to the second floor. We took up the last two empty tables..business seemed to be good. One of our colleagues recognized a VIP at the next table which started a whispering –and –signaling session around the tables, ah..a former chief minister. The VIP must have sense the commotion as he turned around to nod and smile at us..
Back to food…
Some of us decide to go for cendol and ABC instead of ordering drinks..so it was sweets/dessert before the meal lah..I had the ABC- this was so so …the shaved ice was a bit too ‘rough’- it would have been more enjoyable if the ice were finer.
Asam fish (RM25) – the fish came with pieces of ladies fingers and brinjal. The fish was fresh and the kuah/ gravy was sourish without being overly spicy- this was enjoyed by all and throughout the meal, many were still continuing to drench their rice with the asam gravy.
While we were tucking into our meal, Mr VIP and his group had finished theirs and were ready to leave the table, Mr VIP graciously shook a few hands and smiled at the rest of us. A colleague posed a question ‘ When is general election ?’, he nodded knowingly and replied ..‘Either this year or next year’ and left us with a wise smile on his face..
Continuing with food….
Steamed prawns (RM30) – the prawns were submerged in egg white and steamed and the results-Oh la la..i would rate this as the best dish of the night. The best part was not the prawns – but the egg white. The sweetness and juice of the prawns flavoured the egg white, ahh..so sweet..so prawny ..I likeyyyy…
Overall, an ok meal and the best thing was the very reasonable price !
