Shrunk

Pulut kuning beef rendang (Turmeric glutinous rice with beef cooked with spices and coconut milk) - MYR9.90+ 6% GST which is MYR10.50 nett. While the price stays the same, the portion now is much smaller. You can compare this with the one I had at the end of last year. The glutinous rice portion is less and there is only 2 cubes of beef in the bowl. To be fair, this dish is listed under snacks so that is why the portion is small since it is supposed to be a snack.

Nasi Goreng Selasih (the Malay language) MYR21.70+ 6% GST (MYR23 nett) Fried Rice with Thai Basil/Sweet Basil. This portion is the same as before but they have replaced the shredded cabbage with sticks of raw cucumber and carrot.

We ordered a glass of hot honey ginger drink at MYR5.90+ 6% GST (MYR6.25 nett) which taste fine.

Total bill is MYR39.75 nett for two pax but they did not give me 5 cents back in change so the cost to me is MYR39.80 nett. I was not in the mood to argue so I did not ask them for the 5 cents.

    2. The fried rice portion should be big enough for you.

  2. Oooo...pulut kuning!!! I love that! The last time I had it was 1986 at a nyonya food stall at a coffee shop close to Jaya Supermarket, PJ. So very nice but never came across any shop selling this after that one time. I sure would want to have that again.

  3. Should put the pulut kuning in smaller plate.

    Nasi goreng selasih looked good. I like they served it with crackers. So many crackers some more.

  4. Yet they use such a big plate for the so-called snacks portion. Makes the thing look even more pathetic. :/

    1. There are only two cubes of beef in the curry so I agree with you that the portion is small.

  8. The govt's debts are escalating the inflation, making all our food to shrink like that. It was so awful to see such a big plate. I would need 2 plates of that to be full.
