Restaurants & Bars

I finally took Anil Khullar's suggestion of this Malaysian restaurant tonight. I enjoyed the food very much. I had asam laksa, and bubur gandum for dessert. The noodles in the laksa were hard to chew, but it was the best-tasting laksa I've eaten in New York, including Queens. It was spicy and tasty, and had big pieces of delicious, absolutely fresh fish. (I didn't ask, but it tasted to me like mackeral which, under the name ikan kembung in Malaysia, would be a traditional favorite for this dish and many other fish dishes). The bubur gandum was very pleasant. (Bubur is a traditional Malay/Malaysian breakfast dish of any number of vegetables [especially root vegetables or/and beans] boiled in coconut milk with palm sugar. Here in New York, bubur is generally served as a dessert rather than a breakfast. This one didn't have much vegetable matter.) Anyway, I will definitely go back and try other dishes. My filling dinner came to $6.25, by the way.
