Organic Chicken Rice delivered (from Kopitiam chef)

jmarek | May 3, 201008:54 AM     8

As reported in an earlier thread, the chef from Kopitiam is now preparing food for delivery every Thursday evening. Delivery areas includes Berkeley, Orinda, Lafayette, Walnit Creek, Danville, San Ramon.

We ordering a Chicken Rice for 2, which comes with soup and a choice of vegetable. We got sambal long bean. You can also add on other entrees (choice of 4) and we added on beef rendang.

All in all, it was very good. With the pre-preparation, the chicken rice was not quite as good as it was at Kopitiam... but then again Kopitiam doesn't exist anymore and this was delivered to our door. The long beans themselves lost a bit in delivery and reheating, but the sambal was outstanding, with that wonderful funky pungent overtone balanced with chili and sweetness.

The rendang was the best dish of all, spicy, complex, and richly coconut-y. The meat was the perfect texture, tender but not mushy. This dish loses nothing in the delivery and re-heating. I don't recall beef rendang being on the menu at Kopitiam (?), so it is nice to taste Chef Boon's take on this classic.

This is certainly the best delivery food in the history of Lafayette!
