He has been raving about this place that serves nice spicy fish for quite some times but never had the chance to visit until last month…
Mum’s place has variety of dishes ranging from Malaysian to local Portuguese cuisine.
The restaurant has dim lighting with traditional local interiors and table settings. For the two of us, we ordered three dishes and one soup. It’s a spicy affair as out of the four, only one is less spicy which is the vege.
The main reason we went there was to try out one of their signature dish, the fried cencaru fish with chili padi paste and petai at RM17.80 for two. It was really good and tasty. The fresh fish was mild spicy on first bite but turned into spicy fiery meat on second bite. The level of spiciness at that time was almost intolerable but it’s too delicious to leave it like that. We managed to finish it but needed lots of water to cool off the tongue after that 😀 If you are worry about the pungent green bean, fret not as it barely has any smell.
Another recommended dish for curry lover is the Portuguese chicken devil curry priced at RM16.80. The juicy meat coupled with potatoes was well coated with thick and robust curry. One bite on it will surely ignite your taste buds.
Seafood tom yam at RM16.80 was spicy with subtle sourness. Comprised of prawns, squids, oyster mushrooms and carrots. Not the best I’ve had but good enough to complement the rest of the dishes.
Belacan kangkung priced at RM13 was nothing to shout about. The portion was so big we had a hard time trying to finish it.
I pretty much like this place and will definitely go back for more. Reservation is almost a must on a weekend.
Total bill was RM87.75 inclusive of three plates of plain rice at RM5.40, two glass of filtered water at RM1.60, lime juice at Rm4.90, 5% gov tax and 10% service charge.
