Simply Mel's

Dish of the Day served with rice, complimentary appetiser and a Jelly Rose Selasih drink for only MYR12.90++ (MYR14.20 nett) - available Mon to Fri from 11.30am to 3pm with a different dish everyday. On Tuesday it is Pineapple Curry with Prawns with a free appetiser - the round fried ball on the plate - I am not sure what that is but it is some sort of fritters - you can read their menu and look under the appetiser section to see whether or not you can identify this appetiser. The dish also comes with stir-fried vegetables. Since I can't finish a full portion of rice I requested for it to be halved knowing full well that there will be no changes to the price so the portion of rice shown in the photo above is not the normal amount.

Can't see much ingredients in the bowl of curry

Better view now - two prawns in their shells in a sweet and creamy (lemak) coconut curry which has a low level of spiciness just right for me unless one happens to bite into a slice of chili.

That's the amount of pineapple in the curry with the two prawns after I have removed their shells.

Simply Mel's - Malacca Portugese Cuisine - located at The Sphere, Bangsar South. Tel: 22414525 - I have been here to eat the Keluak Curry back in year 2012 and the fact that they are still at the same location today attests to the tastiness and authenticity of the food they serve. I will be back for more lunch meals during week days.

  5. Two prawns in a set meal with a drink is more than reasonable at that price. Pineapple with prawns...killer combo if cooked well, I love this dish. This place serves Malacca Portuguese cuisine called kristang it seems (from their website)!

  7. The rice is only half portion? That means the full portion must be quite big. The curry looks good.
