Ma'leisia Cafe

The opening of Ma'leisia Cafe came just at the right time - when the Parramatta branch of Istana closed down. So in addition to Temasek situated just a stone's throw away, the 'youngest' supply of Malaysian food in Parramatta is Ma'leisia Cafe.

We were there for late lunch on a weekend. Pretty empty, only one other table taken. Very airy space, with French windows, which I like because then the smell of food does not get trapped indoors. This prevents patrons smelling like food when they leave the premises.

Michael wanted to satisfy his nasi lemak craving and he was not disappointed. Generous serving with good portion of chicken rendang.

I, on the other hand, had my prawn noodle craving satiated. However, perhaps I was comparing theirs to Lees Malaysian's version, I was left  a tad disappointed with how the soup could have been boiled longer with more prawn shell to bring out more flavour.

We were happy with their home-made sambal, though.

And when you dine with Michael, you must always make room for a shared something else. One order is almost never enough for him. We both shared an order of roti telur with beef rendang. Hm, not too bad la...

And ah, yes, a trip to a new Malaysian eatery is never complete without ais kacang. Haha.
