We were served with some of the highlights for the promotion which consisted of Appetizer, Soup, Main Course and Dessert.

To start off, we had the Kerabu Jantung Pisang, Nasi Ulam and Ulam-Ulaman with Sambal Balacan as condiment. I’m a fan of raw herbs and vegetables and these few salads alone would have made me contended in life.

As for soup, we tried out their Sup Ayam Cendawan. It might sound simple but the overall taste was pepped with flavors, especially from the sweetness of the assorted vegetables. It was quite addictive to my liking.

We also had Sambal Ikan Bilis Petai, Kambing Masak Keruntuk, Ayam Masak Ros, Rendang Daging Minang, Pucuk Paku Masak Lemak Cili Padi, Gulai Ikan, Udang Goreng Kunyit served with Nasi Putih. It was rather hard to rank any of the dishes stated above as every single dish has its unique texture and flavors. However, I would strongly recommend the Sambal Ikan Bilis Petai if you are a fan of stinky beans. The flavors from the pounded fried anchovies combined with the mild spiciness of the added pounded green chilies plus the crunchiness from the added stinky beans was enough for me to finish up my plate of rice. It was a superb dish. Moreover, the Kambing Masak Keruntuk and Rendang Daging Minang were so tender and juicy in their spiced up concoctions that I could not resist replenishing my plate with more rice~ Haha~ 😛

Desserts consisted of Bubur Pulut Hitam and Badak Berendam. It would be a great experience for many to try out their pandan flavored glutinous rice balls (tang yuan) soaked in thick yet creamy coconut milk.
