Popiah - $11
I hadn't had popiah before, but have wanted to try it for ages. This is described as thin pastry skins filled with sliced chicken, king prawns, shallots, vermicelli and bean sprouts served with a sweet chilli sauce and fresh ground peanuts and cashews. This was really good. It's was exactly like a fresh Vietnamese spring roll, but crispy and hot.
Otak Otak - $13
Frankie chose this one and it was very tasty. White fish fillets minced with spices and chilli, wrapped in banana leaf and barbecued.
It was really moist and really flavourful. I thought it was going to be dry and bland and was thinking that it should have come with some sweet chilli sauce, but it didn't need anything. Frankie and I also ate one of those slices of fresh chilli each trying to be tough and all, but man it was hot. My mouth was burning for ages....yeah won't be doing that again.
The first of our mains was the beef rendang. You can either have it as tomato based or coconut based, we chose tomato. I love curries and this didn't disappoint. I didn't think it was spectacular or anything, but it was really good. Then we were going to get the Hai Nan Chicken, but they had run out apparently, so we went for the Szechaun eggplant instead and oh my god i am glad that we did.
