I was around Mont Kiara for the day and when lunch came by, I figured I’d give a new cafe I had come across online a try – in North Kiara. In all my busyness, I only checked if the cafe was open for dine in on Google and forgot to cross reference with Facebook and etc. So, I ended up driving there, arriving at the cafe, only to be told it was closed. I wonder why is it sooo difficult for some businesses to update their Google information??
Anyways, while looking for other options online, I came across Taste of Medan. Their rating and reviews seemed promising – an average of 4.7/5 from 85 peeps. Well, since I do like Indonesian food but dont really indulge in it as much, lunch for the day was herelah.
Come December, Taste of Medan will turn 2 years old. The cuisine served here is of Indonesian – Malaysian Fusion. While they primarily focus on takeaways and delivery, they do accept dine-ins if you are a single seater or double. Maximum 2 people per table.
Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang, RM 10.90 + Nasi Ayam Soto, RM 10.90 + Acar, RM 4.90
Food was very, very good. It blew my mind, literally. Not that I am an expert in this particular cuisine but man, it was delicious.
The Nasi Lemak was da’ bomb. I’ve been to many cafes and the ones that serve this dish usually comes with lesser items on the plate and cost more. Here, at RM 10.90, you’d get a plate loaded with items, so much more than the usual ones I come across. There is the usual rice, sambal, half boil egg, ‘kacang’, anchovies, cucumber, a piece of chicken rendang. On top of that, you’d get a serving of tempe, shredded egg, acar, potato with long beans and some crackers. This was a plate of deliciousness. So many things to eat, all with its own unique taste. I loved it.
This dish was delicious too. You’d get flavorful broth with shredded chicken, taugeh and perkedel. It was simple yet ‘sedap’. Perkedel had some tasty flavor to it. I am not usually a fan of mashed potato but this one here, I liked. I even ordered another serving of it.
Although the nasi lemak had a serving of acar in it, I liked it enough to get myself another serving. To me, the image of acar has always been a paste of something spicy, salty and flavorful. Just a little something you have on the side for some added flavor, much like ‘cili kicap’. The acar here however, was like eating fruit rojak, lol. There was chunks of carrots, cucumber and etc. It was crunchy with a generous sprinkle of peanuts and sweet sauce? Yea, it was da’ bomb.
Overall, this was an awesome experience. I’d certainly be back here for another visit.
