Wonderful

I have been craving for some Malay food lately. Looking for nice ayam penyet, mutton lamb and nasi lemak around the town so that is why we ended up at this side of the town. A friend told me that they have good Malay dishes here. A bit far and we do not come to this area that frequent unless we want to go grocery shopping in Giant. You can actually see this place across the river from Giant Hypermarket.

We went to the Malay food stall market, Sumber Rezeki in Wonderful on Tuesday evening.  It rained almost the whole day on Tuesday so the atmosphere in the open-aired food market was comfy and cooling. Luckily the rain stopped by then. I do not mind sitting there enjoying the clear, starry night but of course, need to be beware of mosquitoes as the food market is next to the river.

SIL and I ordered from 2 stalls; one is ayam penyet stall and another a Malay stall. My kids shared this plate of Ayam Penyet Berempah (RM8.00). Like the spiced chicken thigh. Better than the one in Aloha. The sambal was rather spicy but more fragrant here. 



My SIL had nasi daging masak hitam (RM6) while I had nasi kerabu ayam (RM7). I like the nasi kunyit that served with masak hitam; very soft and fragrant. The chuncky beef was also marinated well. 

As for nasi kerabu; this was my first time tried it. Never tasted it before; rather scary looking at the light blue colouring. But my curiosity was killing me the other night. Now I know how kerabu tasted like by mixing the cabbage shreds and desiccated coconut. They have nasi kerabu ikan but I ended up ordered the one with the chicken.  The dish was alright to me; the char siew chicken thigh with its chilli paste on top. And it came with cincaluk dipping and half salted egg! 


Plan to come back here but then we will try out the Indian food market that is just next to the Malay food market. SIL said there is a Chinese food market but we did not see any. Move out maybe?

I went last night - they started late and worked at a snail's pace. Tsk! Tsk! Will blog about it. Only had the stuff from the ayam penyet stall - the kerabu one had not started serving yet by the time we left, dunno what they were so busy with inside the stall - past 7 p.m. Will go again...and would want to try the Indian place at the other end as well.
