We ordered the sambal kangkong, beef rendang and fu yong egg.
Beef rendang consisted of 6 small pieces of sinewy beef that could fit into those small plates meant to hold chilli sauce/soya sauce. I thought there was a mistake in the order and asked if that was the normal portion because it looked like the amount of food I'd feed to a small cat!! I was told that was the 'normal' portion. Granted, prices here are cheap but patrons are here to fill their stomachs. Either raise the standard and portion size together and increase the price (I don't think people would mind paying more for a susbstantial meal that is good!) OR take it off the menu completely! It's pointless serving food that's below par and of ridiculously small portions because you don't charge customers that much.
Fu yong egg was definitely not worth the price either. Was extremely thin and yet runny. I'd like to know how the cook managed to pull this off, fry an egg that's extremely thin, yet managed not to cook it right through so it's runny - that takes skill!
Sambal kankong was the only thing that was midly decent. Even then, nothing to shout about. We've tasted better.
We left the place still hungry (thanks to good portion control by the restaurant), utterly dissatisfied and paid $22 each for that meal (including drinks).
This isn't my first time to this chain. I've always enjoyed the food here and returned time & again. But after this experience, I'm utterly disgusted. Never again.
