Skyway Malaysian

Just wanted to report on my meal at Skyway on Allen Street this weekend. Was coming back from the New Amsterdam Market and didn't have the patience to deal with the crowds in the hot, humid weather so we dropped by Skyway. We ordered roti canai, popiah, Hainese chicken, and char keo taw. The roti canai is not the super-thin Nyonya style (which I prefer), but it still managed to maintain its lightness. The char keo taw was well cooked and flavorful. There wasn't as much shrimp and squid as other restaurants, though. I was a bit surprised to see that my Hainese chicken served without the bone. Texture was good, but there's something nice about sucking the meat off of the bone. I was pretty disappointed with the popiah. First of all, it came way after we finished our other three dishes. Not sure if they forgot about our order or they were still cooking it. I did, however, remind them of it during our meal. And every time I've had it (in other restaurants) it's been served at room temperature. I actually ordered the popiah because of the hot, humid weather and always find it refreshing and crunchy. This one was served hot!

Overall, a good meal. After going to Skyway a few times, I definitely have to say that I vastly prefer Taste Good in Elmhurst (though I like Skyway's roti better).
