over the weekend, new york times did a write up about asam laksa and some of the restaurants in my neighbourhood. click here to read the news - From Asia, Rapture in Bowl . i'd been to minangasli when it first opened, they have good food but service is so and so and something about that place makes it look kindda blah. passed by that place few times when it is supposed to be busy time and looks empty most of the time. a bit pricey too. taste good is ok. not the best in the world but the serves the purpose if you rasa-rasa mengidam or in the mood for nasi lemak, mee jawa or laksa. never been to double crown. will try and make it there soon. probably some fancy malaysian restaurant. sripraphai is so and so. long lines to go in. been there once. probably need to go there again soon just to re-validate some of the claims made by my friend. brought some mat salleh friends to that place and they didn't like the food. yes, i did say mat salleh friends. they said the food is bland. hey..don't blame me.
