[Halal] Pahabaq! Nasi Kedah sempoi baq ang!
Puas giler makan kat sini! Lauk-lauknya bukan saje murah, tapi sedap!
For only RM14.50 – I had a hearty meal of rice, cabbage, bawang goreng, daging hitam (3 ketul), and kambing kurma! My friend’s plate of chicken and kobis cost only RM6.
My favourite has to be the Mutton Kurma (RM8.50). The gravy was rich and savoury – memang cukup rasa rempah-ratusnya dengan pati kambing. The meat was tender and the gravy memang padu beb!
The Daging Hitam here has a more prominent kicap manis taste (vs. the savoury Penang style) – but it’s not cloying and flavours were well absorbed by the meat.
My second favourite dish is the Bawang Goreng – onions sautéed until brown and crispy with curry leaves and salt. So good!
Nasi Kedah is essentially Northern-style Nasi Kandar – hence, banjirkan nasi dengan kuah is a must! I counted at least six curries on my plate.
As opposed to Jitra Mai (see our post here) – I like that the curries are not very sweet, and combined very well. They’re also not spicy (as in pedas) but are packed with flavours.
My friend was very happy with her Fried Chicken – it had enough spices and was tender. It’s also cheap at only RM4 seketul.
They have another two outlets in Kota Damansara. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Hangpa takkan kesal.
