Just when you least expected it, you encounter something more than ordinary. Occasionally, we DO get what we paid. Melaka Street Restaurant truly came as a pleasant surprise.
The restaurant is located in SS2, Petaling Jaya, same row with Nam Heong Restaurant. It is a simple and homey restaurant which serves primarily Peranakan (or Nyonya) cuisine.
Fried Man Tau with Kapitan Curry @ RM5.00. The Fried Man Tau is tasty when consumed on its own but it tastes even better with the Kapitan Curry.
I was told that the Kapitan Curry tasted delicious and fragrant. It was full of santan flavour. My friend said that low-fat santan might have been used as the curry was not oily.
Fried Wantan Mee with Prawn @ RM7.50. Thin egg noodles were cooked in a thick egg gravy. It tasted not bad, heavily loaded with "wok hei". The prawns seems to be bigger in size as compared to the rest of the restaurant at a similar price range.
Fried Mee Suah (炒面线) @ RM7.80. Unlike the one i had at Yut Kee Restaurant, this Fried Mee Suah is full of "wok hei", with every strand of the thin rice vermicelli visibly parted and it's not stick together (at all). Well done for the Fried Mee Suah that i've longed awaiting for!
