I'm craving for fruit rojak, LastoftheDragon exclaimed after our not so strenuous morning swim.
I named a couple of stalls where we could do takeaway fruit rojak but she seemed to have something in mind.
What about Bayu Timor?
Nothing in the deep recesses of my mind could recall that Bayu Timor serves delicious rojak. Since I have not been there for years, why not pop by and rekindle my faded memories of Bayu?
It was a late sunday lunch but the restaurant was still fairly packed.
We chose to seat at a mix of bench and rattan chairs, surrounded by decors and carvings- for the uninitiated, most of the furniture, decor items are for sale in Bayu Timor. So if you like the chair that you sat on, you can actually buy it too :p
Food came surprisingly fast.
The Rojak (RM6.50) serving was super huge..
After my first bite, I finally understood why LastoftheDragon was craving for this particular rojak. The ingredients were very fresh- chopped fruits and vegetables were juicy and sweet (sour for those mangoes :p). The crunchy condiments- fish keropok, fried yau char kuay- were crackling good. Doused with thick, spicy prawn paste and liberal amount of peanuts- I must admit, this was one superb rojak. Excellent value for money too.
I ordered the Indonesian Fried rice (RM19.90 for set meal), since it was only available on weekends.
Again, I was happy with this choice too.
My set was served with some kuihs..Which was the only disappointment in this meal...both kuihs were dry.
