Poppo Kanteen 3

We did not get to try the mutton curry and beef rendang during our visit 1 and visit 2 so we went there again just for these two dishes. The price of nasi lemak with mutton curry or beef rendang is more than then price of the items (in the a la carte menu) when ordered separately so we went with the more affordable option.

Mutton curry - MYR9.90 nett. This is the usual sized rice bowl and I am surprised to find about 4 big chunks of mutton in it with two wedges of potatoes. The meat can be considered tender but it is sticking to a piece of membrane which is quite tough to chew (the membrane). I don't think I dare to order this dish again because the mutton is too much for both of us to handle.

Beef rendang - MYR6.90 nett. The slices of beef is not as tender as the mutton but still manageable. The taste is unlike the taste of beef rendang that we are used to. We detect a strong ginger taste in this dish which is not present in the beef rendang that we have eaten before at other eateries.

Deep fried egg - MYR1.50 nett with very crispy edges but with a runny yolk.

Plain white rice with a piece of chip (keropok) - MYR1.80 nett and we ordered two plates of this since we had a lot of curry and rendang sauces to finish.

Deep fried shallots on top of the rice. The height of the rice block is the same as that of a usual table spoon which means there is a lot of rice. We should have just ordered one plate of rice and either mutton or beef to share because we had difficulty finishing all the food.

White coffee (cold) - MYR4.90 nett. I think cane sugar is used to prepare this giving it a richer taste.

Total bill - MYR26.80 nett for two

Photo to show that the bowl used for the mutton curry is a small usual sized rice bowl.

  3. I see the name, I like already. Ooooo...the curry and the rendang look really really good! I love how they use the banana leaf and the enamel plate, real old school...very very nice and they fried the egg just the way I would do it myself.

    Sri Petaling, eh? Dunno how to get there. Went once when my friend took me there for dim sum one Chinese New Year when I was stranded in KL, flights back all full.

  6. I don't fancy mutton so I'll just settle with the beef and the egg, or actually I prefer ayam goreng berempah the most, hehe.. the keropok looks like those bitter crackers, can't recall its name suddenly..

    1. Wah I am impressed you recognize the keropok. Don't eat mutton can save cos mutton is more expensive than chicken meat.

  7. That chip you had is usually served as a starter snack in Indonesian restaurants. We call them emping melinjo (like what I had at Enak KL). It has a slight bitter taste but I love it eaten with fresh sambal :)

  17. They are very generous with the curry, overflowing dy. What a unique way to serve rice in a compact block like that. It is a very hearty meal indeed. I'll go for the lamb to share as my hubby doesn't take beef.
