I was enticed into dropping by Ernie Mansion for a visit after listening to my friends raving away about how awesome the chicken chop here is. As I am a fan of this particular dish, it made sense to pay this eatery a visit to check it out.
Ernie Mansion is located in Block A, Happy Mansion, next to Hideaway Cafe. Parking is easy here. Plenty of spots available just outside the eatery.
The cafe itself was cosy and quiet. Customer service was good, we were immediately attended to once seated. They were friendly and accomodating. Food arrived quickly.
Hainanese Chicken Chop, RM25
This was a good chicken chop, finger lickin’ good. Even without the sauce, just eating the fried chicken on its own was da’ bomb. The fried batter was spot on. It was not too crispy, had a softer crunch to it. There was certainly some flavoring added to it because biting into that chicken was delightful, yummy. With the sauce, it was even better. Besides the delicious chicken, the dish also included potato wedges and a side of greens.
Pad Kra Phrao Pasta, RM 23
When it came to ordering our second dish, we could not decide between a rice dish, Pad Kra Phrao and a pasta dish. After conveying our dilemma, they suggested to us Pad Kra Phrao Pasta, a combination of both … which was not in their menu. As soon as we heard it, we got excited because it isn’t everyday that one comes across a noodle version of this Thai rice dish.
The pasta was yummy. It tasted like Pad Kra Phrao minus the rice with plenty of mince chicken, basil and an egg. Yummm!
I enjoyed my visit to Ernie Mansion and look forward to dropping by soon for another visit. I would not mind at all giving the chicken chop another go.
