Rocket United Cafe @ SS2 Petaling Jaya

September 2, 2009

A one-of-a-kind "political cafe" that serves surprisingly decent food. Way better than many of the modern kopitiams that keep sprouting across the city.

Nyonya rice. For less than RM10, you get a well-prepared platter filled with flavourful ingredients, including fluffy, blue-dyed rice and moderately spicy, tender chicken rendang.

Sarawak laksa, made with a sambal belacan base and mixed with tamarind, garlic, galangal, lemongrass and coconut milk, then served with omelette, chicken strips, prawns and coriander. Tasted reasonably authentic.

Otak-otak Muar. Four pieces cost RM3, which seems like a low price, but there isn't much fish paste inside. Nevertheless, worth trying if you like otak-otak.
