Square Meal Review of Sedap ?

Behind Sedap's plain shop front is a sweet little budget eatery that you can easily fall in love with. A few lanterns and faded photographs brighten up the bare-bones interior, but penny-wise crowds are here for the zingy Chinese/Malaysian food – especially the £7.80 lunch deal (a starter of crispy chicken skin or a spring roll followed by any beef, chicken or vegetable dish). It's also worth investing in the excellent rice and noodle plates: char kway teow (£8.50) would only cost a few ringgits at a Penang hawker stall, but who's complaining when it delivers such plump prawns and a true, smoky taste? Haianese chicken rice, nasi lemak and archar (Nyonya-style pickled vegetables with peanuts) are other hot favourites. To drink, stay in Malaysia for teh tarik – tea sweetened with condensed milk.

    ytTastes :: Sedap – Malaysian / Singapore Cafe

    Sedap – Malay for delicious! :) An unassuming cafe located on Old Street opposite St Luke’s (home of the LSO). What’s great about this place? It’s one of the places I go for some “local” food from Singapore/Malaysia. Food from this region is really a mixture between cultures of Chinese, Malay, Indian, and a little European, also known as Nonya food. And how authentic is it? Well the chef/owner used to work in a the Copthorne Kings Hotel in Singapore famous for it’s grand buffet of Nonya food from Penang. How do I know? A good friend of mine was recommended this cafe while in Singapore by the owner of the Hotel!...

  2. I cannot vouch for the rest of the faire on the menu of this rather ordinary looking restaurant. I still can't resist the obligatory order of roti canai a.k.a. roti prata every time I visit. These were made fresh to order by the in-house Roti King himself. And I have to say this is the best of its kind that I have tasted since I left Singapore...
