One of the things I despise in the so called "World Class Organisation" is working on Sundays. In my line of job, let me tell you that I also work from home, well, the piled up marking and preparation for next week's classes, So, to squeeze an education fair duty in the name of achieving the "KPI", guess if I want to keep my job, I had to wake up by 7.00pm and be at Mid Valley by 10am. The once a year annual fair drew thousands of potential customers, such so, none stop I spoke and the person in charge forgot that I had to replenish my energy. By 2.30pm, I was dying of hunger, thus, I walked to Little Penang Kafe, right at the entrance of the mall.
With anger and hunger, I couldn't even decide what to order. But since the menu featured most of my favourite Penang dishes, between the Assam Laksa or Curry Laksa, it was the coconut milk flavoured broth drowned with yellow noodles, tofu pok, bean sprouts, cockles, fish ball and garnished with tad bit of mint leaves. Eaten with the spicy sambal, the flavours were not bold as per my liking but quite decent quintessential tastes.
To finish up my meal, instead of a drink, I had the red rubies, Thai dessert with shaved ice, water chestnut coated with glutinous flour for the gummy texture, coconut milk and sugar. This one, quite special as it was generously topped with nangka/jack-fruit slices. Lovely taste, this dessert made my day.
Within half an hour, I settled the bill and hurriedly left this eatery which indeed draws plenty of customers into their rustic kopitiam ambiance and with attentive customer service.
