Review: Restoran Muar

I'm taking a break from tweaking my new clothes. Still can't figure what went wrong with my labels and International Foodies links. It's not helping when my line is yo-yoing sighhh...

Remember the night we got turned away to Max! Kitchen & Wine??? Well, we ended up at Restoran Muar right across the road. Had meant to try this place for some time back but some how never got the chance.

RM - Restoran Muar

We sat on a huge round table since there isn't any smaller tables left... seems very promising. Behind us, there is a large group of diners chowing down and I tried to peep back, left and right before I check the simple menu. Hubby then got the lady boss to recommend us dishes.

Started off with a dish of Petai Squid and Prawn (RM16 for small). I don't really like the sambal taste of this dish. Somehow something is missing but I can't pinpoint, and I hate chewing on the large pieces of dried chilli bits. Luckily, the seafood is fresh and loved the petai bits.

Hubby originally asked for Kangkung Belachan but they ran out of kangkung, hence we opted for sweet potato shoots instead (RM6.00). Aisay, they've used the same sambal as in the Petai Squid and Prawn. Had to dig out those chilli bits, so minus points there.

RM - Stir fried sweet potato shoots (RM6.00)

Next, we have this Crispy Fried Eggs (RM5.00). 3 eggs deep fried into a lacey omelette, served with a few dashes of dark soy sauce. The simplest dish but yet the most satisfying of all!!! Loved the crispy whites coupled with the runny egg yolk... simply divine. Hubby told me that his mom used to deep fry their eggs this way, wahhh... so nice but not my mom as she usually shallow fry them.

We ended our dinner with cendol of fine shavings of ice, drizzled with gula melaka and thin coconut milk; and topped with cendol. As we dug further, red beans are abound underneath the ice. It was on a special price of RM1.00 but it's a very small bowl. Hubby asked for second. This time round, the lady boss made it herself and the ice was not shaved as finely as the Indonesian helper. A week later, we are delighted that they started to serve cendol in two sizes, big for RM2.50 and small bowl remained at RM1.00.

The sambal dishes are not to my liking but there are a few more other dishes that I would loved to try, so might go back there for them. Will comment further then. Was told that reservation is a must on weekends.

for sure the color of the imitation sambal is tooo browny dark. Should have been more gloriously orangee ! Then also they shud have cutted da squids lengthwise so can longitudinally align the ying yang of smelly sambal with pungent petai for harmornious effect ( this one bsg style only ).Try Baby Seafood in Klang( along shapadu highway , see Friedchillies ) for best petai effect ( or jungles of Camerons if u dare ). safety not guaranteed
