Sue’z Delights

The Malaysian parents you never had. Homely in the true sense of the word, Pappa Vic and Mamma Sue welcome you into their tiny takeaway diner that’s tucked away on busy Princes Highway, Clayton. An impassioned coach Vic is speaking about the food in between politely barking orders to the back where Sue is waving that magic wand to conjure up those dishes. A new menu daily like a Hugh Hefner harem, the hottie staples of Penang and Singaporean Char Kway Teow and Hokkien Mee along with Roti and Gorengs are available most days. It’s on the weekends where it gets more interesting, and when I’ll return next for Mee Rebus and Siam on Saturday.

Red or black roulette, even more limited on Sundays with two changing choices, the Nasi Goreng Chincalok, fried chicken rib and thigh pieces topped with kecap manis with battered prawns, diced pineapple chilli salad, sliced omelette egg topping shrimp flavoured fried rice. Spike it up with Vic’s homemade sambal. No need to add anything to the Penang Hokkien Mee, a reasonably fiery and flavoursome prawn broth together with egg noodles and vermicelli, prawn and slow cooked pork on the bone. Wash it down with a yummy sugar syrup grass jelly drink, or condensed milk sweetened tea or kopi tarik. All this without losing too many chips.

Come for the fare, and your ear chewed off (in a good way), the food delights aren't the only thing you'll find.
