Lontong goreng from Mas-Ayu Restaurant

Mas-Ayu Restaurant, lontong goreng
This lontong goreng from Mas-Ayu (55 Upper East Coast Road, tel : +65 6449 2844) was not what I had in mind initially when I had first heard of the dish. I was imagining that it would be literally stir fried lontong with the vegetables and possibly a dried out the sayur lodeh gravy from the stir frying. Instead, it looked like Chinese chai tau kuey and it was basically stir fried ketupat with eggs and fried chicken in a sweet and savoury sauce. Sans the garlic-ky flavours.

The taste of this greasy stir fried dish wasn't as intense as radish cake. Aside from the mentioned lack of garlic and char aroma, it did taste like chai tau kuey. Which made for a pretty decent comfort food item that I wouldn't mind eating again. I think it would have been great if it were spicier.
