Warung Cafe is easy enough to find, its in the North Court, opposite FOS kids, and just at the entrance to the footbridge to the Komuter, and Northpoint. It's a small food court set up, and very pleasant, cosy, and bright (in the day time). The gregarious and my new idol owner, Sue, was there at the table, where Logan was already tucking into a bowl of delectable looking mee rebus all by himself. Thamby of course would add another delectable adjective before Logan's name.
Their signature 3 layer gula melaka tea. Surprisingly, it is not as sweet as it looks, and tastes magnificent. Seriously, just thinking about it (and the other stuff) makes me wanna hop over to midvalley right now. Anyway, its not a flaming lamborghini, and you are supposed to mix it up before drinking, or you'd end up drinking pure gula melaka. Seemed a pity to destroy the gorgeous strata.
An assortment of nyonya kuehs were also served. All delicious, and I'm not just saying that coz the meal was free. It's quite easy to get awful nyonya kueh, ....just go to most hotel buffets. For some unbeknownst reason, nyonya and malay kuehs at hotel buffets are usually bad.
Gotta give it to Sue for creativity. This is a serunding toast. Much like kaya toast, but laced with yummy serunding. However, the bread does fill you up, so if you are eating other stuff, best to stay away from this, as it will soak up and expand in your stomach, and you wont be able to try the OTHER goodies.
The Petronas Twin Tower rice, this dish is called.
I'm kidding, its nasi tumpang, blogged about eons ago by our definitive queen of the food bloggers, Masak Masak. According to a friend I spoke to over the chink new year break, nasi tumpang is kelantanese and usually comprises leftovers etc. But not THIS nasi tumpang. If it was leftovers, it was glorious leftovers. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!!! Layers of serunding, fluffy rice, chicken curry and more serunding, that would give a geology student an O.
.....like the lass up here ....
Look at that. Glorious layers of goodness.
Tumeric Fried Chicken, ....can't go wrong there. Needs to be eaten when freshly fried. Sue prides the place (she says she is not the owner, her son is, and she is a regular paying customer) with using clean oil, which is true, coz the Fried Chicken tastes so "clean", and freshly fried.
A happy nasi tumpang camper.
Nasi Lemak, which was also yummy. The rice is steamed. The sambal was good. However, by this time, we were, as you can imagine, feeling realllllly stuffed.
To really finish us off, ...Sue fed us with more, Soto Ayam.... I love soto ayam, and there are many versions of it. I do prefer meehoon to nasi impit. But we were really far too full.
Roti Canai, just for variety....like we needed it.
Another piece de resistance, the dried prawn serunding rice. The rice is covered, like a veil over a bride, with a large omelette, and as you lift the veil, oops, omelette, you discover the beauty that lies beneath. (unless you're Jacob and Leah). A spicy complex but delicious "hair bee" ...apparently its toygirl's favourite dish.
The girl and her roti....
And a cool ice kacang to really finish off the job, and exploding our stomachs. Its funny how VASTLY different people's expectations of a good ice kacang are. With corn, without corn, no kidney beans, must have kidney beans, red beans, no red beans, etc etc...the list and permutations are ENDLESS!!!! For me, my favourite combination is Corn, Red Beans (not kidney beans, I HATE those), Leong Fun, (grass jelly) ...and on the ice, generous amount of evaporated milk, gula melaka, dribble of rose syrup, and dash of santan.
I honestly dunno where Frat mustard appeared from, but he disappeared as quickly as he appeared. Was it just an apparition?
Anyway, Sue, (my new idol, I did mention right) is such an entrepreneur. She also owns the Himalayan Herbal chain, which we all visited (like a school field trip), and bought lots of stuff. She also owns Che Che, some girly handbaggy stuff, at which point I went to Carrefour to buy Oreos for baking.
Thanks for organising, ToyCouple, and thanks Sue. I can't wait to bring the kids and friends there. I NEED NASI TUMPANG!!!!
