Some part of me is Malay. Do you believe it? Nope nope, I don’t wear songkok or I don’t have 4 wives. Since all of us are descendents of Adam and Eve, I am sure we are connected somehow. I don’t know why but for some reason, I turn out to be Chinese now.
Despite my body system is flowing with Chinese blood, my taste buds are kind of special. It can be customized and sometime, Malay food excites me. Wait wait.. I just realized I am a product of China but “Made in Malaysia” …dang!
I know I know I have been posting a lot about nice non-halal food, pork, alcohol bla bla bla. So I decided to hunt for HALAL food this time, not only halal food but nice Malay food.
Aseana is a Kafe and Bar located inside KLCC. It is normally quite quiet on the normal time and get really crowded during the peak hours. If you don’t want to feel awkward, go with your Malay girlfriend. Ops.. I mean your Malay friends.
There is nothing much to talk about the ambience and the photo above did not carry any weigh too. It is just a way for me to show off my photography skills. *faint!
If you are not a spicy food eater, you should start with something light, something less spicy first. By any means, if you have faith in your stomach, go ahead with the main course.
For the sake of adding varieties to my food photos, I ordered Keropok Lekor, deep fried spring roll, and pisang goreng ala Bali as my starter. Have a think about it, you can get all these by the roadside and guess how much all these cost?
I am a super big fan of platter. In Peranakan Place @ One Utama, I love Peranakan Platter. Over here, I love this mix platter. At this stage, please don’t ask me silly question such as why platter? Duh.. you pay for single price and you get fish, rendang, chicken, ulam, keropok and kari. I am “small” eater remember?
If you are not smart enough, normally evil and angel you will be fighting in your mind.. fish or meat? Meat or chicken? Don’t let that happen, just order all in one plate! Your wallet might be bleeding but deep down, I can tell you that your belly loves it.
Some might be“not so” smart and decided to order curry fish rice, chicken rice, chicken rendang rice or kuey teow soup. Honestly, I am alright with that as long as you like it. It is personal preference and wallet ability right?
Overall, I have tried every single dish above and I love them so much. Did I finish all those food? Please try not to be funny here. How can I possibly finish all those food in one go. Of course I went there multiple times ler.
If you noticed, sometime I am “not so” smart and sometime I am smarter. Well, that is how the cookies crumble. You are going to drive me really mad if you ask me if this place is good or expensive.. sigh.. i) if not nice, do you think I will blog about it? ii) if not nice, will I repeatedly go to the same place iii) quite reasonable price else you really think I really “cop” money meh?
