Ben decided to surprise the family with a Malaysian meal on a Friday evening on his way back from work.
We had noticed a new Malaysian restaurant on No. 5 Road a short while ago. When I checked it out on Urbanspoon.com, I noticed that it only opens in the evening. We usually eat out for lunch on weekend, so, we have not check this place out until now.
Apparently, Sambal Coconut Malaysian Szechuan Cuisine only caters for take out only. There is a 10% off for pick up with some conditions applied.
The above is Mee Goreng for $8.25. It has beef, egg, shrimp, tomato, bean sprout, choy sum, cabbage and tofu. This was slightly sweetish.
Fried Kuey Teow is $8.95. This was slightly spicy and sweetish also, with shrimp, fish cake, squid, bean sprout, egg and chives. Nanzaro commented that the serving was relatively small compared to the one he always get from V’s Malay & Thai Food in the Richmond Public Market for $7.
The above Sambal Black Tiger Prawns is $10.95. There were probably about 10-12 good size tiger prawns with tomatoes, sweet peppers and onions. It is slightly spicy and tangy.
The last dish was Lamb Curry for $13.95. At first, we thought it was Beef Rendang as the sauce looked quite thick.
There were chunky lamb pieces on top but when it’s my turn to get to the dish, only potatoes were left at the bottom of the container. That’s when I clarified with Ben and realized this was a curry dish instead of rendang. Rendang does not have potatoes in it.
Overall, the dishes were pretty good. We are glad that it’s close to our home and if we crave for Malaysian food, we do not have to travel far. The restaurant was busy when Ben was there. He waited for 30 minutes for his orders to be ready.
It’s cash only for pick up order in order to qualify for the 10% discount.
