My SIL brought me and my 2 kids for a dinner last Thursday in Kampung Datu. That evening hubby was not at home as he has to entertain his friends from Kuching. So my SIL suggested that we ate out.
Suggested few places such as Uncle Dom, Permai but finally we decided for Malay food in Kampung Datu. If you think that Kampung Datu name sounds familiar, it was out in local newspaper last month for the fire outbreak that razed 60 wooden houses and left more than 600 people homeless on 19 June.
It rained pretty heavy that night but it did not stop us from going to Kampung Datu. Despite the darkness, I can see the burnt houses and what is left in the Malay settlement villages. This Roy's Corner is just on one of the row of houses that opposite the affected houses.
Not many customers that night. Maybe because of rain. My SIL ordered its Rojak Tambi which was very delicious. The gravy was sweet and slightly spicy and they were pretty generous with the kuih. The kuih was very nice and crunchy. Reminded me of the Indian rojak.
I ordered its Nasi Lemak Special. When it came, it looked slightly disappointing to me, but once I tasted it, it was not bad at all. The only thing that I didn't like was the sambal. Slightly sweet and sourish for me but I still enjoyed its fragrant pandan rice.
My kids had fried noodle and fried rice (Nasi Goreng Cina). You can see how big portion was the fried rice!! Nothing to shout about the fried rice. It looked plain but came with fried chicken.
Thanks to my SIL for the dinner treat that evening!
