I was the second customer besides another who was already tucking into her meal. I sat right at the end, towards the windows. Eating alone means I can't order more than one complete dish. I was not sure on what to opt for. Eventually with much debating within myself, I settled for Mee Bandung Prawns and the so called drink of "Java Fantacy”
When the waiter walked away with my order, I screened the surrounding and took a couple of shots. The staffs at the counter were quite curious and kept staring at me when they noticed that I was snapping pictures. I thought they were going to stop me but they did nothing. And so I continued until my orders were place on the table.
I took a couple of spoons of the thick reddish gravy from the big bowl of mee bandung prawn. The flavors were punchy yet it lacked the spicy kick. I stirred the noodles into the gravy and was hoping that the sliced chilies should make up for the spicy taste. But the gravy still fell flat.
The gravy was only slightly warm and did not settle well for my taste. Gravies and soups with noodles must be piping hot for me, if not it’s a turn off. Anyway I continued eating and managed to finish half of the noodles. .
Java Fantacy, a concoction of celery, tomato, carrot, ginger, supposedly a well-being and de-tox booster was drinkable.
I know for a fact that detox drinks are never a pleasure to the taste buds, so I was receptive to the taste of Java Fantacy. However I was puzzled why a crafted carrot stick was placed inside the glass. Well, maybe as an attractive decor???
As I settled my bill of RM27.00, I was toying with the idea of coming back to Belanga to try their Nasi Kerabu.
