Bubur Lambuk (savoury rice porridge)

For the mains, the nasi briyani stood out – it was flavourful and the spices were well balanced. The Beef Serunding with the lemang was also very enjoyable. I was pleased that the lemang wasn’t dry.

Meanwhile, I also thoroughly enjoyed the Daging Rendang Tok – the beef was very tender and not overly spicy but still very fragrant.

I was quite wary of the Sambal Tumis Sotong Petai (squid) because I am not a fan of petai. But I found the dish to be quite tasty. However, I definitely preferred the other squid dish – Stir Fry Squid in Tumeric.
