Eat & Drink


It’s been a big month for this fast-growing Malaysian eatery chain, what with picking up Poh Ling Yeow as ambassador, and launching another store in Northbridge, Perth. Here they’re creating queues by drawing the masses out of Broadway Shopping Centre for a quick, inexpensive feed. After populating your own order pad, tuck into stainless steel thali plates bearing everything from Mixed Satay ($13.90/6 sticks) to ultra-fragrant Biryani Rice (3 Dishes) ($15.90). Despite coming adorned with sambal eggplant, prawns and slightly dry fried chicken, the yellow rice is the hero. The big hit of cloves, cardamom and spice comes from a new batch being made every 3-4 hours in this high-turnover space. Flaky golden Roti Canai with Beef Rendang ($13.90) might not unseat Sydney roti king Mamak, but it comes within cooee. It’s accompanied by a wicked, hot and garlicky sambal, credible beef rendang and black mustard seed-dotted dhal. Wok-fried flat noodles, Char Koay Teow ($13.50), are popular here for good reason. Finally, with a generous dollop of green tea ice cream, Matcha Rocks ($7.50) doubles as both drink and dessert. It’s just one option from their extensive, illustrated list, though if you wade through the salty mountain of Deep Fried Chicken Skin ($6.90) you might need the more refreshing Tropical Lime ($7.50) to actually quench your thirst.
