Revisiting Rumah Makan Minang

Rumah Makan Minang, Kandahar Street

We've been wanting to come back to Rumah Makan Minang for a long time. It seemed that the wanting had being going on for the past nine years.

Rumah Makan Minang, rice

Rumah Makan Minang does serve brown rice. But whom are we kidding? We didn't come here for brown rice when the traditional nasi putih isn't broken. This stuff is tender and absorbs gravies well. Everything we ordered was good with the nasi putih.

Rumah Makan Minang, kang kong

Stir fried kang kong was okay. It's a dish that was what it was - mouthfuls of vegetable crunch flavoured by a little garlic and ikan bilis with just a bit of heat from the chillis. Not bad with rice.

Rumah Makan Minang, begedil

Begedils here were awesomely peppery.

Rumah Makan Minang, gulai nanka

The gulai nanka, or curried jackfruit is much more tender than the ones from Minang House at Lucky Plaza. I'd pick this over the latter if I had to choose.

Rumah Makan Minang, sambal goreng

Very competent sambal goreng here. There was a particular sweetness perhaps which I couldn't put my finger to. But still addictively delicious especially with white rice.

Rumah Makan Minang, ayam belado hijau

Pretty decent ayam belado hijau. Wished the chicken were meatier though. The belado hijau itself was pretty salty so that's another solid reason for their nasi putih. I liked the flavour from the green chilli which oddly reminded me of a particular taste that can be found in green beans as well.

Rumah Makan Minang, omelette

Spiced omelette. I never found out what was the proper name for these things. Not bad too. 

Rumah Makan Minang, teh halia

Their teh halia doesn't have much of that halia flavour so I'm sticking to the regular tarik drink the next time.
