This buffet is unplanned … honest … cross my heart and hope to die!
We were staying in San Bruno, thereabouts. Each day driving between our hotel and the Caltrain station we can’t help but notice a restaurant called Melaka Restaurant. That word could only mean one thing in the world … it’s the name of one of the oldest city in Malaysia … and that means that it’s a Malaysian restaurant. We simply gotta check it out.
We found out that it’s a buffet place. And what really made us stay for dinner is the irresistable price … it’s only about $8 or so per person. I can spot a Malaysian anywhere … from the way they dress, their hair style and especially the way they speak.
You know … Malaysians have their own unique English … pretty much a mix of English, Malay and Chinese … we call it Manglish. I have loaded such a song on youtube here — it is not exactly a Manglish song but more Singlish but it’s close.
I so miss the humble noodles. The mussels were just so-so.
The deep fried prawns was also so-so.
The boys enjoyed the sushi.
The calamari, the hainanese chicken and the fried chicken wings were so-so too.
I think this one is chicken … am not sure.
The soup was so-so.
The pastries selection was also so-so.
Green tea ice-cream … certainly not Malaysia.
The food overall are not great but they were comfort food for us. We enjoyed the evening. The total came up to only $35 including tips. Not bad.
