Hjh Maimunah Restaurant (Nasi Padang)
I was excited when I walked in here, enticed by the aroma of the spices and enthralled by the extensive selection of dishes. This was such a find. It was hard to contain my excitement as I made my selection of dishes (urghhhh…. So many dishes and such a small stomach) from the extensive array of way too many delicious looking items.
The three of us quickly agreed on an ikan baker (chargrilled fish served with fresh chilli sauce, chopped onions and a dark sauce - top), jack fruit curry (this was fab), tahu telur (a tofu dipped in egg and then deep fried), beef rendang (a dry beef curry), brinjal stir-fry, sambal goreng (a stir-fry of lentils and string beans), ikan pepes (fish packed in spices, wrapped in banana leaf and then grilled - lower left), and tapioca leaf in light curry sauce.
Sounds way too much? Not for us. Our plates were cleaned out in no time and we were soon tucking into the hot tea. Total bill for the spread: S$28.50 / US$16. I will be back, soon.
