Malaysia House

December 29, 2015

More recently opened in Rockhampton, we highly recommend visiting Malaysia House for some tasty food!

It’s just a little more expensive than other Asian restaurants, but definitely good value and the food is always delicious. With a drinks menu, lots of seating room, and friendly service,  we have never left Malaysia House dissatisfied.

We have frequented the restaurant a number of times, including for takeaway – here are a few dishes from our visit with friends shortly after Christmas!

Laksa – Malaysian style curry, coconut mil, vegetables and rice noodles ($13.80-18.80)
Has been one of favourite noodle dishes since first trying it in Singapore – and this dish does it justice!

Golden Sands – deep fired in batter made from duck egg yolks ($20.80-24.80). This is my favourite dish at Malaysia House and I always recommend it to anyone who asks for suggestions. Salty, crunchy, and decadent, try both chicken and king prawn!

Along with Amanda, Farrah, and Pei Yee, we had these two with us at dinner!

Assam Dish – fish or king prawn cooked in tangy tamarind sauce with fresh tomatoes, okra and onions ($20.80-22.80). I didn’t have this dish, but was told it wasn’t bad!

Angel hair king prawns – crispy king prawns in buttery egg floss and fresh curry leaves ($23.80) Tasty, but I still like Golden Sands more!

Roti Canai – traditional flat bread that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Served with curry dip and sambal paste ($3.00)

Char Kway Teow – wok fried flat rice noodles in spicy sambal and bean sprouts ($14.80) Love the wok flavour and never overdone!

Some of our other favourite regular dishes:

  • Curry puffs (3 for $7.80)
  • Rendang beef ($17.80)
  • Homemade BBQ duck ($25.80)
  • Salt and pepper silken tofu ($15.80)
  • Pad Thai ($14.80)

Day 06: Singapore – Delicious lunch @ Hill Street Coffee Shop

Thursday, July 18, 2013

[ARGH! I had just written this entire blog post when WordPress glitched on me and I lost the whole thing!]

Mike and I took a much needed break in between visiting the conservatories for some lunch!

After walking around and checking out all the eating establishments at Gardens by the Bay, we decided on Supertree Dining – a complex of restaurants offering a multitude of dishes from all over the world. Oh, and the view of the Supertrees while you’re dining is pretty nice too I must say!

This is a photo I took later in the day very close to where we ate to give you a view of what the Supertrees looked like!

The dining space is quite lovely with softly glowing abstract Supertrees.

After looking at all the options, we decided to dine at Hill Street Coffee Shop. It not only had enticing menu items but also a lunch special! 2 mains and 2 drinks for $15… not bad!

We were shown to our booth by the window where we sat, chatted, and wondered awkwardly when we would receive our menus. All the staff happened to be temporarily in the kitchen, so we picked up the newspapers on our table to pass the time.

And then we laughed. Because the newspapers were the menus! Clever guys, very clever. And very neat.

We soon made up our minds and placed our orders.

We started with drinks while waiting for our food to come out. The options we had were either kopi (coffee sweetened with condensed milk) or teh (tea sweetened with condensed milk). Mike enjoyed a kopi while I had a teh – reminiscent of all the Cha Yen (similar tea drink) I had in Bangkok.

Mike decided on a dish we’ve been meaning to but haven’t tried yet, the Traditional Singapore Laksa – spicy curry and coconut milk based broth with thick vermicelli, cockles, prawns, fried tofu, chicken, bean sprouts, sliced egg and fish cake. Mmm, an instant favourite between us! Nom nom nom!

I chose the Crispy Fried Lemongrass Marinated Chicken Nasi Lemak. Fragrant rice cooked with coconut cream and served on a banana leaf (and newspapers) with a number of sides: crispy fried chicken, roasted peanuts, sambal (hot spicy sauce), acar (pickled vegetables), cucumber slices, ikan bilis (small fried anchovies) and a pieces of seafood-flavoured-crisps I couldn’t identify. The chicken was delicately crispy, flavourful and so juicy! Combination of flavours and textures were excellent! We’d never had Nasi Lemak before, but it too became an instant favourite!

Edit: We actually did try nasi lemak a few days before at Bugis Market with Xuan… it wasn’t very good though. This was great!

With happy bellies, we proceeded back to Cloud Forest to continue on our conservatory adventure!
