Malaysian Chapter Restaurant Review

Bron received an e-mail from the Entertainment Book notifying her that the Malaysian Chapter is a new addition to the book.

 

I’d already read a few blog posts from my favourite Canberra food bloggers and we’d chatted a few times about eating at Malaysian Chapter.

When we arrived there were already plenty of diners eating their meals. We noticed the large space and generous table placements. We were shown to a table for two in the middle of the restaurant and were handed menus by a very friendly and helpful waiter. He asked if we wanted to see the vegetarian menu and we declined knowing we were looking forward to meat dishes.

The menu is extensive. It took us each a while to read through the menu and then it took longer to make a decision on what we wanted to eat. There were so many good choices. 

I settled on Vadai followed by a Nasi Lemak with Lamb Rendang. Bron chose Roti Canai followed by Nyonya Prawn and Pineapple Sambal.  

This combination of dishes was perfect and we happily shared.

We enjoyed each of the dishes. The roti was very flaky and the dal had a spice to die for. I found the Vadai a little doughy but the flavour was really nice and it took up the dal beautifully. The lamb rendang was amazing and went so nicely with the coconut rice. The prawn sambal wasn’t hot at all but the flavour was fantastic especially with the jasmine rice.

For dessert I chose the mango custard with evaporated milk.

We were very happy with the meals and the service. We want to come back to try some different dishes especially the order ahead ones on the menu. These require 48 hours notice and include dishes like KL Chilli crab and Black pepper crab.
