We had to strike out one of the restaurants from the list recently because they kept substituting ingredients. Bah. So one weekend, I was assigned to scout the mall for an alternate. Our feet led us to Nasi Lemak, which claims to be a Singaporean restaurant although Google tells me that "nasi lemak" is really a Malaysian dish.
I don't know why I'll even bother with the pictures (taken with the crappy iPad camera of course) but here are what we had -
[seafood tom yum, yang chow fried rice, chicken in a pot, salt and paper squid, red ruby or water chestnuts wrapped in jello in a bowl of coconut milk]
The meal cost us around P1300, which is too much in my opinion as the food wasn't really something I would write home about. I was especially intrigued by the Red Ruby because the last water chestnuts I tasted
were from a food stall in Bangkok. Unfortunately, Nasi Lemak's water chestnuts feel drip-py. I hope you get what I mean. They felt like someone scooped them out of a runny nose. Ewww.
So in conclusion, I won't be coming back. Not even for their "famous" chicken in a pot because that really just tastes like sweet chicken adobo, that I could get elsewhere for far less than P300 a pot.
