Normally, I don’t enjoy prawn toast as they can be notoriously oily; but these babies had a thick layer of prawns sitting on a very thin layer of bread AND were surprisingly ungreasy.
The ribs were so tender that they melted as soon as you popped them in your mouth. The sauce was gooey and thick, with a slight spicy kick that complimented the sweetness perfectly.
Wondering where the Malaysian comes in? Well when you take a bite into the soft succulent chicken, you’ll find that it has been marinated with Malaysian curry and spices; which is all encased within a crispy, spicy, and slightly salty exterior.
My personal favorite was this dish, I don’t know what the Chef does in the kitchen, but the steak was unbelievably soft it’s indecent, yet so infused with flavour. You can taste the spice of the curry with the pepper, and the pang of sweetness as you swallow.
If I could put an orgasm on a plate, this would be it.
A wave of flavours have a party in your mouth with this one. The sweetness of the sauce, a hint of the cracked pepper and lastly the red wine. So dirty, so tasty.
Just to reiterate my point again – each main course at that size was £4.90, and the starters were £2 per dish.
I did however come here during lunch time, but their dinner prices are very cheap too and the high quality is consistent.
This place really is hidden away, so you have to peek around the corner and then you will see Yatzen.
Yatzen opened less than a year ago so she’s a bit shy, but when you get to know her…
The photos really don’t do the food any justice.
So, you owe it to yourself to try this place out.
