A flick through the menu at this Brentford Square restaurant and it’ll be fair to say it’s pretty much a typical suburban Canto joint with a Malaysian page. Find curry puffs, satay sticks, fried won ton for entrée, combination stir fries, beef in black bean, Mongolian beef, lemon, honey chicken or with cashew, roti, rendang, char kwai teow, mee goreng or laksa.
But don’t just take what’s given, it would be unfair on yourself not to ask if there’s more. Take the “Muck Heong Har” which is basically deep fried prawns showered by fried garlic flakes and basil leaves that’s crunch textured by crunch. Very nice. Don’t miss out on luxurious fatty, gelatinous, vinegary sweet “Mosai” pork ribs eaten with fried mantou (a bread made of wheat flour and water) that I can’t wait to go back for. Call ahead and make sure you get the low down, otherwise it’ll be sweet and sour pork instead.
