Kaching Island, Chow Kit

September 15, 2019

Customers seeking a wholesome, hearty meal at a friendly restaurant might hit the jackpot with Kaching Island's Nasi Lemak Salmon (RM25), pairing Malaysia's de facto national dish with a fish that's a cut above, plus plenty of peanuts, a poached egg, anchovies and sambal for completists.

Kaching Crew's kitchen goes the extra kilometre by serving every customer with complimentary roselle juice spiked with oranges, instead of conventional plain water, for a cooling quencher. There's more: If you order the set lunches, you'll also enjoy a complimentary soup (red cabbage when we visited) and a dessert (chocolate pudding, perhaps?).

There's a bit of a hidden bar upstairs, though customers can also order cocktails to be served downstairs.

The beverage list was a work in progress when we visited, but even typical-sounding potions like the Mai Tai and Mojito (RM25 each) might surface in surprising presentations.
