Pecel Lele Lela (Indonesian Restaurant) - Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam

Like what I've said in Pak Hailam Kopitiam, Spicy Crab Portuguese, Padi Prada, Lohas Lifestyle Cafe, George Chuah's Nasi Lemak and Food lovers, we drive around on Sunday evenings to see if there's any new eateries within Kota Kemuning. Not very far, perhaps 10 to 15 mins to the nearby area. We drove pass McDonalds and turned left towards the new row of shop lots which seemed very quiet with just a few eateries. Quickly we had to decide. Either this Indonesian restaurant or another drive to other eateries. Any way, it was already 8pm. Certainly we were hungry. At first my other half was not keen. Eventually he agreed for he didn't want to drive around again.

The menu features interesting typical Indonesian dishes. Those cooked with chillies and Asian herbs. Definitely my kind of food. And the ambiance is as colorful as the dishes with options of seating inside or the tables outside. We always prefer to sit outside for its more comfortable and away from other customers. 

I at once settled for the "Lele Cabe I Jo"set meal and "Kedondong Asam Boi. My other half does not like Indonesian food. For him, life is about curries. That's why he couldn't decide what to order. I suppose the safest was the "Nasi Goreng Special" and "Hot Milo" without sugar.

The kedondong (umra) drink has always been my fav because I just love anything with sour taste. Indeed the drink was nice. Right balance of sourness and sweetness.
Despite reminding the staff not to add sugar in the hot coffee, it was overly sweet. We send back the drink yet it came back again loaded with sugar.Instead of returning the drink, we gave up and ordered warm water.
The lele cabe set consisted of rice, deep fried ikan keli/catfish with spicy green chili sambal, fried taufu, fried tempeh, cucumber slices, salad leaves and accompanied with a vegetable soup.

It was a fabulous set. Loved the spicy sambal ijo and crispy fried first and when eaten with the fried tempeh, fried tauhu and raw veggies, I tell you its so good. The soup was not too bad either. Wasn't all that tasty but enough flavor. Just that slightly cold.
The nasi goreng or fried rice was fried with soy sauce and chillies. Served with fried keropok, fried cat fish, a runny fried egg atop and a bowl of plain vegetable soup. Again, this dish is worth praising and surely tasty.
However even with fiery sambal terasi, nasi goreng begged for more spiciness. This soup was just average but I didn't mind finishing it up on behalf of my other half.

I don't mind returning again this restaurant. Definitely not with my other half for I know the food here isn't what he like to eat.
