Waroeng Penyet, The Curve

PG booked me for the day today because he has no transport. As usual, I had to drive. So I made the call to go check out something at The Curve first before we adjourn to 1 Utama for dinner or movie. It was lunch time when we departed our place. LDP was surprisingly smooth all the way up to Mutiara Damansara. Finding a parking was never a problem in The Curve. But we faced some dilemma as to what to eat in The Curve.

Fortunately, there was a board placed at the pathway between the The Walk and the center court where it introduces various promotions provided by the restaurants there. I saw Waroeng Penyet and I made my decision to have that. I’ve heard of the good side of it and been wanting to try it out, just that I always landed in somewhere else for food when I’m in The Curve. Bad memory.

PG wanted La Gourmet at first, so I let him be. Ladies first, rigth? So, when he saw the photos of the food provided by La Gourmet, he gave up the Mexican style food. Aside from the good evidence that the place was almost empty, aside from a table or 2, filled with some patrons. I gave him a smirk.

When we reached there, the place was packed with people. It almost full house! Fortunately, we managed to get a table for 2, with only 2 chairs. It was on the outside, which is a good thing for my photography. The bad, the table was too small for the number of items we were about to order. PG commented that the price was pretty reasonable. So we proceed with the ordering, on a piece of paper, without much hesitations or holding back.

The gado-gado came first. It was soaked in peanut gravy, which I think was really nice. I couldn’t remember when was the last time I’ve had such genuine peanut gravy. Even the locally claimed best pasembur doesn’t give such genuinely taste peanut gravy. The contents were nothing to should about. It has beancurd slices, tempeh slices and plenty of crackers. PG said the tempeh was very sour and tasted really weird. While certain piece of beancurd or something which I thought was beancurd, tasted like crab roe in a way. It was probably rotten tempeh and beancurd that we were having. I had a piece of the tempeh later and found that it tasted really foul. I had to de-rate it because of the bad tasted tempeh we were served. I never liked tempeh anyway.

When the ayam panggang was served, PG loves it on the first bite. It was indeed very nice. Lime and sweet sauce were used on the chicken thigh and then grilled to crisp. The ayam penyet was moderately good. Penyet, which means flattened. Somehow, the chicken thigh doesn’t look as flattened as I thought it should. Somehow, both of them have a piece of beancurd and tempeh each. While the ayam panggang has a bonus of 1/2 an egg. Unknowingly, we ordered the tahu, tempe & telor penyet, which is actually the same stuff as the side dish in both the chicken dish that we had earlier. More yucky tempeh for us both. At least they weren’t as bad as those from the gado-gado. The cendol that I had was quite nice. Not too sweet, just tasted right. It has black jelly in it as well.

I had to finish the remaining of the ayam penyet that PG ordered while he selfishly booked on the better ayam panggang. Well, what can I say? You can’t fight with a ladies, right?

We were not charged 10% service charge because we self serviced during order. But our food were brought to us to our table. Only accept cash, no credit card purchase. Somehow, they left the sign plate despite our items were completely served.

A place that I would definitely return to when I have the chance, and will definitely remember to avoid tempeh at ALL COST.
