Chef Rasa Sayang Malaysian Restaurant

On a weekend some months ago after my Fit Club session in Gordon, I took a train to Chatswood because I wanted to purchase some things from a shop inside Chatswood Chase. Along the way, I noticed one of the Chinese takeaway restaurants undergoing renovations. Its originally red signage was replaced with one that is bright green. One word that caught my attention: Malaysian.

And that marked the beginning of many visits for pork noodle and pan mee. They should start a loyalty program of some sort - some of us frequent them every other day (especially that Chatswoodian weekend flatmate of ours).

Popiah ($8.80)
So happy that there is no longer the need for us to travel all the way to either Campsie of Kingsford for awesome filled-with-lots-of-potato-and-half-a-half-boiled-egg curry puff ($3.00)!

We could help ourselves to as much chilli as we want...

Flatmates were delirious when they found out that they had pan mee ($13.90) on their menu. Even more so when it came with the "right" chilli sauce ;)

I, on the other hand, could not contain myself when I saw that they included pork noodle ($11.90) in their menu. I finished 80% of the soup - amazing for someone who normally leaves the most soup in the bowl. The only weird thing was that I could not have it in only vermicelli. They only serve it in either vermicelli and flat rice noodle or vermicelli and yellow noodle.

We were divided in what we thought of the fish head noodle ($11.90) but still a satisfying bowl of noodles.

Chinese tea is bottomless and from what we have observed, they seem to also do catering. Oh, and there are different varieties of Nyonya kuih at the counter each day.

My Sweet Memory

Jenny: Eh, since you like green tea latte right, you should try MSM.
Me: Where ah?
Jenny: MSM la. Got one down the road from my house and got another one near Town Hall.

And my infatuation with MSM's green tea latte ($4.70) began (not a very flattering shot of it below)...

When a friend from KL visited, we had dessert at their Strathfield branch. We shared a slice of red velvet ($6.95). We felt that perhaps it had been in the fridge for a tad too long, as it wasn't as moist as we would have liked it to be.

The nearest branch to where we are is located in Chatswood. Proves to be a popular place to hangout, as almost each time we were there, we had to wait for a table.

And like the other branches, I like their interior decor...

They have a wide selection of colourful cakes on display...

Didn't help that the last time we were there, we were seated right next to the display above. After a while, we all felt that we had to have some of these sweetening (and fattening) goodness. We really enjoyed the richness of the triple chocolate mud cake ($6.95):

After we demolished that slice, we felt that we needed more. We added a slice of Oreo cheesecake to our order and yum, the crunchy bits of Oreo biscuit provided a contrast to the melt-in-your-mouth texture of the cheesecake:

D and S ordered a smoothie each. Both very refreshing.

At their Town Hall branch, we also saw that they sell Beerenberg jams, mustard chutneys and relishes. The names of each flavour caught my attention; The Apricot Jam that Sally always makes time for, The mildly spiced Bavarian Mustard the Robert turned into a habit, Blueberry Jam - the first thing that Aunty Natasha puts on the breakfast table, The Caramelised Onion that Dean hates to share, The Original Strawberry Jam from Grandma's Pan, Whenever Roger travels, so does his Sweet Chilli Relish...

So far, I have enjoyed all my visits to their branches. I have not bought anything off their shelves. Yet.
