Rice and crackers

This place used to be called Terminal 5 Cafe (above Hua Yi Tang, in one of the shops that is the same stretch with Everwin supermarket in Jln Pahlawan) but not so sure when a change of ownership took place.  A new proprietor took over and re-named it S-Point. I am not so sure what "S" stands for. Maybe Sibu? Or something else.


It just happened that my sil knew the new proprietor when we went there the other night. Everything looked the same as I can remember. Been there only once last year. 

This cafe was nice for hangout and meet up but not much on the menu compared to the previous one before the new lady takes over. But good news is she has imported cold cuts like palma hams, pepperoni and salami. Must try out the salad one of these days. :)


We were early and their very first customers that night. So basically we had the whole place to ourselves. The kids were happy as it has air-con and free wifi. So they can played games and watched online movies without bothering me and my sil much.


Not much in their menu but noticed they have umai. Interesting dish to be served in such outlook!

Let's get on with our food. I ordered my usual drink, warm honey lemon.  Great for a chilling soul on a cold rainy night.

My SIL had its nasi lemak special, one of its signature dishes. Like the presentation. Look at the generous spread of fried anchovies and peanuts. I always prefer the little anchovies as they are crispier. This nasi lemak came with bbq chicken wing which was juicy. I know because my sil gave me her chicken wing. lol. RM6.90 only. Not too bad for such price.

The kids shared this grilled chicken rice at RM8.90. The chicken was alright. The only non-spicy dishes (under noodle and rice categories) that the kids can eat.

As for me, I had its tom yam seafood rice.  Taste wise it was good but not much ingredients. Few squid rings and a couple of prawns. RM9.90 for my meal.

Noticed something about the 3 dishes? Right, other than we ordered all rice meal, all our dishes came with crackers at the side. Must be the cafe's trademark. So, that is why this post is named as "rice and crackers". *wink* At least the kids enjoyed the crackers. No oil smell and they were pretty crispy.

I guess "Rice and crackers" is an apt name for it since they serve quite a large portion of rice and as you have pointed out, every dish has crackers in it, lol!
