This is another been-here-so-often-its-taken-for-granted kind of restaurant. A hop, skip and jump away from our apartment, this restaurant ranks second in our list of favourite nasi padang restaurants (number one is still at Capital Cafe).

|right across Wilayah Complex|
This is a family business run by three brothers; we’ve been coming here well before their late father passed away. Due to its close proximity to my office I used to frequent its sister shop managed by one of the brothers in Pertama Complex until it closed down a few years ago.

|Cat ordering the catfish (pun intended)|
|me waiting my turn|
|aah, torpedo scad (seriously!)|
The padang fried chicken is Brendan’s firm favourite while Cat usually has the fried ikan keli (which strangely enough, is catfish). I am almost always here for their ikan cencaru cooked in chili gravy.
|the mighty torpedo scad!|
|Cat and her catfish J|
|Brendan should run his own poultry farm|
|poor imitation of a catfish?|
|bon appetit J|
|iced nescafe + iced lemon tea|
By the way, I learnt something new today. The ikan cencaru or torpedo scad (megalaspis cordyla) is a species of moderately large marine fish classified in the jack and horse mackerel family. I kid you not!
