We haven't been to this place (name still hasn't changed) since 'My Friend' left years ago... Afterall, I moved to Melbourne and came back to Brisbane only once a year or so and then I was away overseas for so many years. The owner has since left and sold the business and he's now working around Darra in different restaurants. Poor guy had a hard life due to his wife's gambling habits.. But enough about all these gossips and let's talk about the food here!
Had dinner here tonight with two other ladies. Nothing really much have changed inside, but it does look a bit cleaner and there's now a fresh tank filled with life fish and when you order crabs, they actually bring out the live crabs to show you. There's an older woman (whom I presume has to be the owner?) and a young surly man who were both working there. The young man has the surliest face and looks really unhappy to be there. I guess it's Friday night afterall!
We came here for crab and crab we ordered. Crabs were $45 per kg and the young guy insisted we couldn't order just 1kg of crab as we need to order more. So, we ended up with 3 dishes with rice and a dessert (3 colour drinks) each which brings the total to $106 for the 3 of us. I guess it's no longer cheap but I was pretty happy with the quality of food (except for the service)
|Kangkung Belacan $12.80 - Can't go wrong with this. A Malaysian specialty, fresh morning glory stir fried with Malaysian chilli shrimp paste! Veggies were fresh and crispy!|
|Another shot of all the delicious goodness!|
|Our dinner with rice for 3 ladies.. I guess we could eat!|
|3 Coloured drink (approx $4.50) - bottom to top - Red beans, mung beans, green jelly with shaved coconut ice and sprinkled with whole peanuts. You have to mix them up thoroughly and then scoop to enjoy!|
