Aneka Rasa - short report

sheila | Mar 3, 2005 04:05 PM

Been there yesterday. Found parking close to the restaurant which was not busy at all. The services were extremely attentive. Water was served right after we sat down, refilled promptly and not very dirty plates were changed.

We got:

1.Roti Canai - hand tossed dough then pan-fried it, served with curry chicken dipping sauce . Always our must-have item. The sauce was a little more spicy than usual but with the warm pancake, it was still a winner.

2.Malaysian Satay - Six pieces for an order. We got three beef and three chicken. The meat was tender and perfectly marinaded and grilled. The peanut sauce was so tasty that we just ate it plainly. Love it.

3.Seafood Yam Pot - A ring of taro fried to golden brown filled with scollop, shrimp, corn, red peppers, green peppers, carrot, and black mushrooms topped off with cashew nuts. My favorite dish. It was on the salty side which I preferred.

4. Indian Mee Goreng - stir-fried yellow noodle with tofu, shrimp, egg, and bean sprouts. Didn't like it that much as there was a funny taste. It might be the squid sauce they said they used in the dish. The tofu was not as fresh as it should be.

5.Beef Rendang Rice - Chunky pieces of curry beef served with rice. The beef was a little chewy but still good.

At the end, they offered us a free small desert which was popular in Chinese New Year. The bill came to $41.00.

All in all, a very satisfying meal. But it is sad that good food is not necessarily equal to prosperous business.
