Restoran ASV @ Melaka

29 09 2010

When my brother-in-law brought my family to eat Mee Rebus in Melaka, I didn’t know that a plate of Mee Rebus costs only RM 2. Yes, that is right. At Restoran ASV (which is actually a make shift Mamak stall underneath a big tree), the food is ridiculously cheap. In fact, the inexpensive meals are probably the main reason for the huge afternoon crowd when I was there.

The big question is what can we expect from a RM 2 meal? Well, Restoran ASV certainly did not skimp on the portion. The yellow thick noodles were complimented with thick curry sauce.

Cucumber and chili slices were also served together with fried shallots on the top.

Taste wise, I find the gravy too overpowering with strong curry taste. It was only average given that I can’t taste anything else other than the curry flavour. However, at RM 2 one shouldn’t be complaining too much. At the very least it was a decent meal.

The ABC (Shaved Ice) costs only …. RM 1!

Again, do not expect the best tasting dessert but it was oklah.

Nyonya Colors @ Empire Subang Gallery

7 09 2010

One fine day, my colleagues decided to try out the food at Nyonya Colors. Located at the lower ground floor of the newly opened Empire Gallery Subang, the food was comparatively cheaper than some of the more swanky outlets there. Nevertheless, it was still considered pricey as I could get the same kind food at any Chinese coffee shop.

First up was the Mee Rebus (RM 8.90).

Honestly, for that price I would expect at least a decent meal. Instead, the gravy did not have enough ‘umph’.

For half the price, albeit without the comfort of air-conditioning, I can find a better tasting meal elsewhere.

The Asam Laksa (RM 8.90) did not fare much better.

It was disappointing to say the least. Again there wasn’t much ‘kick’ from the dish.

Honestly, I don’t think I would eat at Nyonya Colors again. Carrying the word ‘Nyonya Colors’ certainly has a lot of expectations to be met as Nyonya food is generally known to be really rich with flavours.

Sadly, this outlet fails to live up to that expectation.
