Here's the promised post on a better laksa - in our opinion anyway.
Headed over to Nasi Lemak House on Sunday after a meeting, I forgot who had a craving but someone did anyway. Nasi Lemak House is not one of my favourite places if only I couldn't really stand the service there, especially the attitude of the Mrs.Boss. But undeniable though, the food there IS kinda good.
Anyway, San had a Laksa since she wasn't satisfied with hers from Laksa Me on Friday.
Definitely a thumbs up from San - hot, spicy and full of flavours! It was enough spice and enough taste, and lots of ingredients, generous amount of chicken and tofu, an essential in San Laksa. A well-rounded dish in general. She was very satisfied with her laksa noodles and slurped that up within minutes. Yeah, she was hungry to begin with, we all were. :D
JK had the Nasi Goreng Pattaya with the level Spicy.
I had a mouthful of that and let me say, as delicious as that was, it really was VERY VERY spicy! I can feel my tongue burn but then again, I'm never really good with hot and spicy food. The dish is a favourite of JK's so he really enjoyed that, especially with the egg topping the rice. Next time round, says he, he's gonna up that to EXTRA spicy. I'll be sure to report smoke coming out of his ears.
Sis aka MM had the Nasi Lemak Kelantan.
There was a giant chicken drumstick for her to enjoy, much to her delight. In her own words, "It was good. I like it." Yeah, not so much with imaginative words, darling sister of mine. Haha. Anyway, she loved it. Didn't fall short of her expectations. She would prefer if the fried drumstick was without the curry sauce but it was great all the same, no complaints.
Me the Mouse had the Nasi Lemak Langkawai and I don't know what crack I was on to order that, that was super spicy.
The fried calamari was yummy ~ I really like their batter. It wasn't just batter, I think it was spiced with something, as it was really different to other fried stuff batter. It's good nasi lemak but a little too hot for me (although my fault for ordering I KNOOOW) and I ditched all the sambal. Hahaha. Also, I thought the nasi lemak (as in the flavour of the rice) that day was a little lacking but all the same, it was still satisfying.
Really a good place to go to satisfy nasi lemak cravings, me feels. Although you really have to have patience to deal with Mrs.Boss, she blows hot and cold and in a word to describe her, she's just plain weird. But at least her food's not weird. :P
