Review: Red Door Cafe & Restaurant
Red Door is one of my parents' favourite joint but seriously I don't find them that great, just mediocre on the number of occassions I have joined them for dinner. Even though claimed by a couple food writers that this place serves authentic Nyonya food but I chose to digress. We have ordered ala carte dishes to go with rice but the portion is way too small and doesn't taste fantastic, let alone authentic. Funny that this place is always packed on weekends, well maybe there isn't much choice in Jusco Metro Prima.
Since sometime back, they decided to widen their menu by introducing individual meals like noodles or rice and when we went there recently, they have some additional items added to the menu as well.
I went for their Duck Noodles (RM8.80). The soup is of the herbal kind which is similar to the famous duck noodle found at Pun Chun, Bidor but clearer. Hubby was busying helping himself to my soup whilst waiting for his Char Koay Teow (stir fried flat rice noodles).
This was hubby's Char Koay Teow (RM6.80) which I tried a bite. Great to note it has enough "wok hei", a must for Char Koay Teow. Tastewise, it was surprising a good one.
Dad ordered Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM8.80), errr in a nyonya restaurant??? Aiyoh hahaha but he said it's a new item and he wanted to try it. When it came, it looked not too bad. I didn't taste it so no comment but he said it was ok.
My mom had their Melaka Chicken Rice (RM7.80) which came with 3 elongated rice balls served with soy sauce chicken. I ate this before and it was nice. The soy sauce chicken tasted like my mom's style. I like the chili sauce (sorry no photo cos her food came late and I didn't want to delay her from digging in).
We have a plate of fruit rojak (RM6.00) which is all right too but our only complain was the fruits were not cut in consistent sizes. Some of them came thinly sliced but some came in huge chunks! Just purely fruits and no crisps nor yau char kwai (deep fried crullers).
Mom and hubby each ordered cendol (RM2.80) which I think has improved tremendously but the portion is still kinda small. At least this time the cendol strips didn't came frozen.
Note: Not sure if it's halal or it's just pork free. Price stated above is excluding the 5% Government tax and 10% service charge.
