OK so, after having numerous dinners at nearby Zi Char stalls, which is becoming a bit boring now, we decided to try this restaurant recommended by CY’s bro, Pagi Sore at Jurong Superbowl, next to former Tang Dynasty Village.
But, why sore? Initially, we joked whether if it means that a SORE throat is guaranteed after eating the fiery spicy food! Of course not! Since I am Malaysian, I know Bahasa. It is actually pronounced as "sor-ry", which means "early dusk".
How about the food?
Let them speak for themselves. =)
I personally find that the most delicious of all is the RICE! It’s no joke, because the best way to present the rice is to wrap it with banana leaf. The heat of the rice will steam the banana leaf and in turn, its fragrant oils will infuse into the rice, resulting in a unique flavour. This is something I have never really eaten before.
At most eateries, banana leaves are only used for decorative purposes with rice, either as wrappers or as the base on trays for rice to lay on, e.g. with nasi lemak. Effectively, they are giving the fragrant oils from the banana leaf a miss, as these oils are only released when subjected to grilling or steaming.
Here, I will recommend you to eat Asam Fish, which is a bit different from Indian or Nyonya style, i.e. thin yet savoury and spicy.
This is grilled chicken, very flavourful with lots of spices. I can taste a bit coriander seeds, something like the coriander chicken (Nyonya style) that I recommended before. Worth trying!
Overall damage is $65++. CY's brother got the bill.
