Beekay's Corner Curry House), this time my darling, really, I don't know what got to him, he agreed to accompany me. How nice. When marriage is love shined shimmered. Been quite a while actually we have done this thing called "marriage shopping". Usually, I go my way because my other half-half, although, initially when we we got married, he did tack along, but after, like maybe 5 times, he point blank told me that its better for me shop without him. Because, he can't take the walking and also he said that he does not have the patience for the hours shopping with me. That's okay. I actually don't mind shopping on my own. In fact, I have even put a stop to shopping with girlfriends. Girls and friends, or women and friends? Tell me about it? They are not only confused, they will confuse you further. Some will literally force you to buy everything while they stand by the side and watch, or when they want to buy something, they will ask you like million times if its worthy, whether it suits them or if they really should buy. And I, trust me, I only can take it for a while. Thereafter, I can't control my razor mouth. I will tell them, which of course, does not go down well with women. So, confirmed, I can only shop with myself.
Anyway, coming back to this akin love birds shopping together, I collected my saree blouse, I had to also buy some accessories and what else is next but food. To Restoran V.P.Curry House we have visited like 4 times already in a phrase of 2 years? Mind you, its back lane eating, not an inviting sight, and do keep an eye on the surrounding. Klang is notorious for snatch thieves. I'm sure you must have heard about it. Our thambies, even thangachies, I tell you. They are super heroes. Night time and broad day light super heroes. Really, you need to beware. Especially if you walking in such a quiet back lane. Do be careful. Having a man beside you does not guarantee anything. Everything can happen within split seconds until you are lost. I was rather panicky as well because I had my handbag with me.
We walked as fast as we could for entering Restoran V.P. Curry House. I think a family run business, obviously, its the women power. Women I think are in control. Maybe they are the chefs, they are also the waiting staff. If you have decided on the standard banana leaf meal, then just sit back prior to being served. Otherwise, for calling for the extras, better for you to walk to the food counter and point to the dishes. We walked and we did the ordering. There's potentially nothing special in Restoran V.P. Curry House, but some of their items are worth the call. I'll tell you later, let me now tell you that you must be prepared to dine in this really basic ambiance and the people who eat here, trust me, they can look normal or when you look at them, your mind will wonder who really they are, what they do or do not. So, the key is to enjoy your meal by ignoring the ambiance and the customers.
Service began at once. At snapshot. Rice atop banana leaf, and they are quite generous with the items. They will leave the sides and curries on your table, you feel free to serve yourself, as much as you like. Then again, how much can we eat? Unless, you are one of those who want to get the maximum out of your money, or you want to irritate them by wasting? Suit yourself.
Our meal started and ended favorably. Indeed. Tasted like grandma's or mum's cooking. Utterly and totally, home style. You will definitely get the lovable tastes. Ikan bilis sambal I call for, this one of my favourite. I never miss ordering each time I dine in this restaurant. Cooked alongside onion, chillies and potatoes as well, yes, potatoes, ikan bilis sambal packed a great punch. Not over spicy, yet a nice burst and ikan bilis/anchovies not over fried until you have to struggle to chew. The best pairing for rasam and sambar, and that pickle, maybe a commercial one, it does add the much appreciated side kick for an overall food sumptuousness. Fried fish was not a let down either, but what can be fantastic about it? Basically, fish marinated with curry powder, turmeric powder and salt, and crispy fried. Of course, the catch is that anything eaten there and then after frying is a knock out.
