Fish out of water !

Eek.. where do we take our friends to eat halal (but non-mamak) in cheras ? Oh no! My food hunting skills are being pushed to the limit here!

Ah... have no fear... help is near! I remember once eating at this Halal Thai place in Bandar Sri Permaisuri... thankfully.. it wasn't too hard to find:)
There it is! Sri Melati Palace.
My friends were impressed... Little Chinese Gal knows where to find halal food so far from her home... hahaha :) TWO thumbs up!
I say... "Don't thank me yet... try food first !"
Well the Tom Yam Gong was good.. as spicy as they come and sour enough to curl your toes, fingers and ears!

The deep fried fish in Thai sauce was tangy, crispy and yet soft and fresh inside. Not bad for a second dish..
Let's hope they keep impressing...

We also had the beef green curry, the asparagus with prawn as well as the kerabu mango.
The beef was a little hard - not up to par. The Asparagus as too salty and over cooked... but the Kerabu Mango was delicious!
So...verdict? 3 good dishes out of 5.... Not bad la... for a "fish out of water".. and not in her own kampung/neighbourhood.. right? :P
Sri Melati Palace, No 50. Jalan Permaisuri 9,
Bandar Sri Permaisuri, Cheras.

wah ... so big prawn one! erm, ONE prawn only? we used to having halal meals, as majority of our colleagues are malays. til the point where sometimes we wished the minority are given a choice to dine separately. =P

hey what is mamak?

CUMI & CIKI said...

mamak is normally street stall/coffee shop kind of indian muslim fast food. cheap and good :) normally Malaysians like to hang out with their "teh tarik" (pulled tea) here and chat till wee hours of morning. that's the Mamak culture!
