Dinner With Beruang Madu & Hairie

Beruang Madu a fellow blogger and our friend Hairie came over to Bangi and we had dinner together. I'd decided to bring them to a restaurant hidden in the kampung area of Sungai Ramal, the Nim's Little Island Restaurant.


This restaurant gave interesting name to their drinks. I ordered the 'calamansi barley', Beruang Madu ordered 'soda gembira' and Hairie ordered 'soda sedih' (he ordered two, I forgot the other one).

For the dinner, we ordered steamed tilapia (I gave it 6/10, as the gravy was too thin, unable to enhance the taste of the fish)

This one was good. The TomYam Seafood Kelapa Muda. Tom yam cooked using young coconut water. The taste was just nice, sour enough and not too hot. It earned 9/10.

The sotong masak merah (kot)... erm... erm.... I had no idea how it tasted like. It's gone by the time I decided to try out the taste. Tapi sempat jugak rasa kuah dia, sedap. Rating untuk kuah je, 8/10.

The kerabu mangga was very sour and not much of taste. It did not awaken my taste bud. 6/10.

I love the bean sprout stir fried with salted fish. In fact bean sprout is one of my favourites anytime. It got 9/10

Tadaaa.... this is the tempe goreng (fried fermented soy bean) that I'd been talking about. Very nice, crispy outside and soft inside. Goes well with the thick sambal kicap provided. We ended up having three helpings. This is definate 10/10.

I enjoyed the dinner, not so much of the food (I was busy talking and taking pictures) but the company of these two friends. Looking forward to another round, somewhere else.

[anon kat situ] Restaurant tu belakang Shell station kat Sg Ramal tu. Tak jauh dari situ. Lain kali boleh tunjukkan.
Mungkin Jumaat kot. Ada yg tak free. Burung kakak tua tu dah bising sangat dah. Sue-sue kata ok je. Mrs. A kena check schedule. Nanti kita confirmkan.
