After visiting with my sister we ignored Brendan’s pleas for curry and headed out to Setapak intending to have (a late) lunch at Cannes Tea House (that was in hindsight located along Jalan Genting Kelang).
However an error in punching a digit in the coordinates on our navigating device took us on a different path which eventually led us to the vicinity of Wangsa Walk in Wangsa Maju. Having failed to locate Cannes Tea House and considering Brendan’s earlier wish to have curry, we settled on NZ Curry House nearby.
In the days when Brendan used to attend classes at British Council the NZ Curry House along Jalan Ampang was our default lunchtime destination every Saturday afternoon, all those years ago. It was in fact here that Brendan had his first taste of curry (if I recall correctly) and he has not turned back since.

We’ve been here before on several occasion, mostly related to my car club gatherings and always at night so coming here in broad daylight felt a little odd. Brendan had the (what else) Chicken Curry with white rice while Cat had the Curried Mackerel with her white rice. Earlier in the day I played ‘masak-masak’ with my adorable niece Sophie and she kept serving me chicken with rice, so it eventually got me in the mood for some Chicken Rice, hehehe.

The verdict? While Brendan and Cat enjoyed their curry immensely I would have to give the Chicken Rice two thumbs down. The chicken was dry, the soup plain and the accompanying condiment very, very sour. But what the heck, at RM24.20 I am in no position to complain and will just give the Chicken Rice a pass in future.
