Then to top up. the pre-cooked items displayed on long shelf. You either go over, stand in front of the shelf and point to what you want. Or let the waiter know and he sure will do the job provided it is not the peak time. While we have already ordered the claypot chicken, sometimes at the spur of the moment greediness is unavoidable. Thus, the plate of brinjal sambal/cooked in chilli gravy and my other half had to order his favorite - claypot lamb bone marrow.
Lunch opened up with the banana leaf and over it, the sides, rice and with choices as per the day curries.
We tucked in, looked at each other and agreed - claypot dishes still delicious after many years - tender soft mutton soaked in thick spicy aromatic curry and I suppose the oil floating on top perhaps you can't do anything or scoop and throw aside. Well, with mutton it is the same story when I cook unless patiently the fats are discarded before cooking.
Equally delicious was the mushy brinjal in the spicy- mildly sweet gravy. The rest of the dishes fared quite right when eaten with rice for a filling hearty meal. We paid RM30.00 and happily walked back to our car parked at the corner of the restaurant. Now that we have moved away from Petaling Jaya, quite a distance to return again as regularly as before. Perhaps once a while still worth the long drive for the claypot lamb and chicken.
