SquareMeal Review of
‘Flavours of Malaysia’ is the tagline for this agreeable little restaurant pitched midway between Paddington & Bayswater. It has become something of an oasis for the local expat community, who
drop by to devour authentically flavoursome plates of mee goreng (hawker’s noodles) & nasi lemak (a hotch-potch of coconut rice served with fried anchovies, boiled eggs, peanuts, cucumber,
fried chicken & chilli paste). Other tempters on the bargain-priced menu might include sing-gang (sea bass poached in tamarind soup with lemongrass), squid sambal, & daging salai masik
(slices of smoked beef & bamboo shoots cooked in coconut sauce). Finish with black glutinous rice pudding, & wash it down with bottles of cold beer or refreshing sirap bandung muar (rose
syrup with milk & soda).
