White House @ Petaling Jaya
August 26, 2010
This cozy kopitiam is operated by the family of a prominent opposition politician, only a few doors away from his party's headquarters.
Nasi kerabu. Bland rice; not moist at all. But thankfully, everything else on the plate _ from the ikan percik to the budu & ulam _ was well-prepared and tasty enough to salvage this.
Nasi lemak. Also unsuccessful, since the rice lacked any fragrance or fluffiness whatsoever, while the fried chicken was tough. During off-peak hours, customers might also be disheartened by cold/lukewarm rice and accompaniments.
Ayam percik (creamy sauce, chewy meat) & fried keropok (crisp, not too oily). Perhaps we were there too late in the evening; things might have been better earlier.
Milo Panas & Kopi Kelantan.
