The Sanderson’s restaurant, Suka have launched an authentic Malaysian pop-up menu. It’s focused on this ‘Street Food’ idea, which I thought was fun, because not only are you getting a real insight into their traditional food but they’ve made a menu that is fit for sharing, as you would with street food, right?
So you’ll ideally order around 3-4 dishes per person, so you get THE best insight into all the flavours available – my gosh I honestly can’t talk about it, let alone look at the photo’s I took, without wanting to drop everything I’m doing right now and head down to the Sanderson.
A positively odd feeling.
Anyway here is just some of what was ordered..
The perfect way to start the meal, but bare in mind food comes out when it’s ready, so you could end up enjoying it mid-meal, but it would taste just as amazing – I can assure you.
Okay, if the menu says that it’s very spicy then I get excited, as I sure do love spicy foods. It definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, however as far as i’m concerned it’s one of the ‘staple’ dishes of the menu, so I say give it a go and if you really can’t handle it, down some of Ahmed’s mum tea for sweet relief.
Okay, so you may know i’m not the biggest seafood fan, mostly due to the way it looks and smells – ironically I haven’t tried a lot of it.
So since I was surrounded by such beautiful looking food and fun company, I don’t think I fully knew what I was doing when I tried the squid..
However, i’m obviously here telling you the tale and I’m saying (with an honest smile on my face) that I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was – does this mean I’m going to start eating seafood – quite simply, no. But i’d definitely eat the Soteng Goreng again and that is something!
Ah-mazing. I literally didn’t want these charcoaled pieces of beef to end, I could totally see myself eating a plate of these daily..
They weren’t heavily marinated but still managed to taste outstandingly good, which I was happy about. Accompanying the beef was a cube of rice, some cucumber & peanut sauce – a perfect mix of flavours in one dish.
..Wow, it was quite honestly a journey of flavours, yes I know how cheesy that sounded but hey, it is what it is.
Oh and what’s Ahmed’s mum’s tea? Find out soon, stay tuned for part 2..
P.S Here is the entire menu!
