So yesterday, in a rare moment of family time, we went for lunch at Hajah Maimunah Restaurant. I’ve only been to the Arab Street branch once, many years back so this was a sort of new dining experience for me.
For the uninitiated, Hajah Maimunah serves a huge variety of Nasi Padang dishes and also traditional Malay kueh. And these below are our chosen dishes for the day:
Lemak Siput (Escargot)
Anybody out there who doesn’t know how to eat this? You suck. I mean it, you need to suck on it!
Salad (lettuce, cucumber and kacang botok) with Sambal Belacan
Very tasty sambal I must say.
This came with yummy sambal kicap by the side (with chili padi in it).
Sorry can’t really name this one. All I know is that it’s some kind of seafood. Not even on the online menu! But it’s yummy tho!
One more look at all the food!
