Initially, we were at Zen & Co – Zen & Co @ Happy Garden – I am definitely coming back for more, which was located just a few doors away from Old Hse. It was my friends birthday and Zen & Co is one of her favorite, go-to cafes. With that in mind, there we were treating her for her birthday, at an eatery she fancies. Once that was done and over with, we all said our goodbyes and went our separate ways.
As the two of us were walking back to our car, we saw Old Hse. Despite having eaten, we were still hungry. So, we stopped, checked out their Menu displayed at the entrance and decided to drop in.
Curry Kapitan with Kerabu Blue Rice, 17.90 ringgit + Cendol Red Bean, 6 ringgit
The Curry Kapitan with Kerabu Blue Rice was da’ bomb. Finger licking good was what it was. There were about 8 items on the plate – Kerabu rice, pickled vegetables, peanut, sambal/acar, prawn paste, potato, chicken kapitan and egg. Mixing all the ingredients together was a joy, really. It tasted awesome with plenty of flavor. The Chicken Kapitan gravy was thick and delicious. The chicken literally falls off the bone with no effort at all. The egg was fluffy and the yolk resembled that of a poached egg, it simply oozed out and provided that much needed gooeyness to the dish as a whole, like a glue that held all the items together. The Sambal and the Prawn Paste provided an ‘extra kick’ to the Kapitan gravy. The peanuts and pickled vegetables gave plenty of crunch. Overall, a truly satisfy dish that provided us with plenty of flavor and texture. I loved it. Burp!
The Cendol was refreshing. It comes in a generous portion, something that could easily be shared between 2 individuals. I liked the fact that you’d be able to manage the sweetness yourself, as oppose to them serving us a premixed version. The was a nice dose of coconut milk, rich and thick with a good amount of red beans and those green bits.
