Straits Kitchen Restaurant

Straits Kitchen has been flashing my mind for some time whenever I passed by this place. Finally I told hubby let’s go there for lunch. Apparently the owner is a lawyer, and he turns this into an eatery outlet.

A restaurant that caters for Western Food, Asian Food, Nyonya Food & Indian Food, before it changed name to Straits Kitchen it was Indian Fine-Dining Restaurant I was told.

We were one of the 1st customer, and service was attentive. Set lunch was written on the board for customers to choose… from Asian Cuisine (2 pax for RM45) or 1 pax at RM25, or Western Cusine RM35 per pax or Indian Tandoori RM30 for single pax and RM50 for 2. Nyonya Cuisine price was the same as Asian Cuisine.

We didn’t go for Indian food, but opted for Asian Cuisine instead. And we were there too early, one of the dish Smoke Chicken was not ready at that time but replaced with Spicy Garlic Stewed Pork Ribs.

What we chose was basically consists like Pepper Prawns, Bok Choy, Fried Fish Cantonese Style, Spicy Garlic Stewed Pork Ribs, Steamed White Rice, Ice Lemon Tea + Dessert.

What I like the most is the white rice that served in a pot, it was absolutely unique.

I would have to literally mentioned down here, what serves though are not impressive, however taste wise isn’t that bad. But hubby finds it a bit pricey for the food given.

Pepper Prawns…. Pepper fried with capsicum, onions, gingers. Slightly salty.

Bok Choy…. With garlic oil and oyster sauce.

Fried Fish Cantonese Style….. garnished with red chili and spring onion. Light soya sauce was added.

Spicy Garlic Stewed Pork Ribs… typical Hakka dish. My mom has been cooking this for us, and preference will of course go to my mother’s cooking.

What was very miserable was the dessert given… 4 pieces of Chocolate.

All in RM45 for 2 pax inclusive of drinks and no service or government taxes were charged.

Yalor, the food is pricey. Now a days very hard to find cheap and nice food. As long as both of you enjoy, why not?

The pot for the rice reminded me of the one I used for my doggies as food container when I was small. LOL!

Nice place but yeah, the desserts are miserably little and ordinary.
