We had a long holiday weekend last week, roads were clear as many people went out of town, we decided to give Ebony & Ivory a try. About a month back, I paid a visit to Naro, an eatery located just a few doors away. Since I liked the area, once I finished having my lunch there, I decided to walk down the row of shops, just to see what is around and that is when I stumbled upon Ebony & Ivory. At that point in time, they had quite a bit of customers, which lead me to assume that they had to be good. So, definitely worth a visit in the near future.
We headed there today, in hopes that it would not be as busy as usual? Guess what though, it was. It was more busy that usual – FULL HOUSE. It literally felt like half the remaining crowd in KL decided to park themselves here, lol. We ended up having to sit outside, which was awesome anyways. The fact that they had fan on the outside made it all the more sweeter.
The place is small but they sure do make it work. It had a very happy and cheerful vibe. Loads of conversations taking place, laughters here and there , just overall boisterous.
A small place means a small kitchen, which explain the fact that they have only 6, 7 main dishes on their Menu, with the rest being desserts and drinks. However, looking at the crowd, having a small menu here did not seem like an issue at all. Looks like they are really good at what they do.
Salmon Sashimi Rice Bowl, 23 ringgit
If you like fresh, raw salmon, this would do it for you. At first, I was a lil reluctant to give it a try, for fear that the raw fish would leave a taste that is not appealing, however – this was a dish that came recommended, so I decided to give it a go. It was delicious. A simple rice bowl with white rice + egg + green salad + cucumber + salmon + tomatoes – it was surprisingly delicious. The rice dishes I usually fancy eating has spices and gravies, which this dish does not have, but it was good. It had a lil crunchy, a lil slimy, some meaty taste from the egg and plenty of freshness from the raw salmon. Yumm !
Minced Pork Scrambled Egg Rice, 13 ringgit
This rice bowl is another favourite of mine. Minced pork + scrambled eggs + greens + white rice – what more do I need? It sure was tasty. Similar to the sashimi dish, this too felt fresh and healthy. The pork and egg combo was delicious, plenty of chewyness and flavors. Loved it.
Would I head here again?
Oooooo yes, I most certainly will. Their Menu may be small but the dishes are good. I also like the area of which the eatery is located in – in a low density flat that faces old school terrace houses.
