Flushing, NY 11354
Along Flushing Queen’s 40th Road, you gonna see the image of dense concentrated shops and remind you of the streets of Hong Kong. The layers of retail shops and restaurants are easy to get lost in, if you are unfamiliar with the signs and entrances. This hungry guy found a restaurant to get his Malay on and see what turns up.
Interior is decorated with some style from the homeland.
Menu is large, there are lots of choice and pictures of some of the food. This is helpful for those that are not quite familiar with Malaysian food.
This place offers two kinds of Roti cani, first is the Mayalsan Roti. It is a chewy and thicker version with more of a bite to it. It more hearty, very tasty. The curry sauce is sucked up with this kind of roti since there is more body to it.
Indian Roti Cani is the other version. This one is a flaky, thin and crispy. It has a stronger flavor due to the crispiness of the dish. It doesn’t quite hold the curry as well as the other type but nether less it is delicious also.
Vegetable rolls, a vegetarian dish that can be enjoyed by both carnivores or vegetarians alike. This crispy full of vegi dish dipped in the sweet sauce is a treat.
Beef Rendang here sometimes comes in a bowl, sometimes on a plate. The flavor of ginger, turmeric and other “curry” flavors is very strong in this stew. The meat is semi tender, there is still some toughness still in it. The spicy sauce goes perfectly with the rice .
Hanaise Chicken for those not in the know, comes cool – room temperature. The chicken is tender and has a strong chicken flavor. The skin has a slight gelatin like texture which some will love but some will be scared of it.
Chicken Flavor Rice is the rice of choice for the Hanaise chicken. it supposed to be made with the broth from the boiling of the chicken. It has lots of flavor and had nice soft grains of rice.
Thai Ice Tea has a very strong floral tea flavor and extremely sweet. I wasn’t too crazy about it, but it wasn’t bad at the same time.
Indian Mee Goreng here is ok. The flavor doesn’t impress me much, there isn’t anything wrong with the dish, it just doesn’t have any wow factor to it. The peanuts, egg and thick noodles along with some Indian like flavors sounds like something that can’t be beat but it didn’t work as well as it should have.
