Had a very late lunch today because I was waiting for AC’s call. When he finally calls, it was almost 3pm. Anyway, went to meet him up and have lunch nearby the place. He recommended stuff from the morning market, which apparently most of the stalls were closed. Of course they were, it’s already half way through noon. So we ended up in Medan Selera instead.

Cendol was nice. Aside from it being served on a cup, there were nothing much to complain about. Though I was hoping gula melaka was being used but the brown sugar used wasn’t all bad. The red beans has the roasted fragrance to it. Though it’s a bit too sweet, only a bit. Much much more better than road side’s Indian’s cendol. I’d come back here for a quick fix of cendol whenever I feel like it.

Fruits rojak was acceptable. At least it was better than Jalan Ipoh YTF’s rojak. There were plenty of water spinach in it. The only complain I had was, instead of giving large pieces of crackers, it was served in shattered pieces of crackers, which doesn’t have much tasting to it.

Popia was quite nice, though it lacked the taste of red sweet sauce. It was moist and juicy, with the same crackers used in rojak found in it. Despite it was soft, the fillings don’t fall apart as I pick it up with my chopsticks. I guess the auntie who made this has years of experience in making good popia. I’ve got nothing much to talk about on the fried tofu though. Probably not overly sweetened by the sweet sauce in it, like most fried tofu do.

After having so many sweet stuff, cendol, rojak, popia and the filling in fried tofu were sweet too. I was stuck with either ordering a mee jawa or chicken rice. Mee jawa was more suitable for my strict diet because of the lacked of meat, but I ended up with chicken rice anyway because I wouldn’t want another sweet food.

I was rather surprised that the roasted meat rice was quite good. Firstly, the chilli sauce. It has chopped up garlics in it and it tasted weird. Later I had AC try it out, he too can’t really tell what was in it. Weird but not bad tasting. My initial finding was that they spilled some soup into the chilli sauce because it has the taste of that vege from the soup. Then I found blended pieces of lime in it. The chicken meat wasn’t too dried, though I don’t get much roasted skin on it. The roasted pork was quite nice but there were only about 5 pieces. The skin was very crispy, comparable to Mooi Mooi‘s but the meat was super salty. In the end, I was ended up with another sweet food, because the sauce that the meat was soaking in was sweet. It’s definitely a chicken rice that I’d come back for when I needed a quick fix. Only RM4 for it, cheap cheap.
