Bunga Rayan Malaysia-Houston

Just got back from lunch from this restaurant and felt compelled to write about the dish I had. I had the Daging Redang Teruna Dansari and have to say that this dish could easily be another one of my favorites. It is a beef stew type dish. It reminded me of a dish (the prok stew)at Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas that I though was great off the nothern thai menu. I had been looking for something like it in houston at all the thai restaurants but never found it. This dish has a hint of curry with other seasonings that explode in your mouth. It is in a brown gravy looking sauce. On the side is a vegatable medley that I spiced up with sarachi and some rice and an Indian Cracker that reminded me of a huge ruffle chip. I chose to order off the menu but they did have a good looking buffet going for $4-5. My dining companion isn't real adventerous and wanted some spring rolls (he always orders them at asian places) and the waiter forgot to bring them. We asked her if she could still bring them because we wanted to try them. She brought them out later and didn't charge us. I generally don't get to excited about little mistakes and was willng to pay for the spring rolls but this was a vry nice gesture that we appreciated. I certainly wasn't going to let that little mistake keep me from coming back but I will no doubt be back now.I understand that is hard to give a blanket recommendation after only 1 dish but I can say that this owner is just the type of rest owner I want to give my business too. You can feel that they love to cook authentic malaysian food and the clientele seemed to agree. The restaurant is in a small simi rough looking strip center at Wilcrest and Bellfort but the interior is clean with lots of space between tables.
Give it a try.
