It has been slightly more than two weeks of no eating out and I am starting to feel withdrawal effects. Haiz...
One of my favorite lunch spots is Hotpot 1@The Starling's A Foodie's Nest. I had been frequenting this outlet for delicious lunches and this is one of the places that I miss.
The food is pretty good, very tasty, very restaurant standard. In fact they are rather proud of their Masterchefs, the three amigos - Ah Long, Ah Ting and Ah Yee.
It is very different from my late grandma's asam pedas because it had a strong curry taste. That's a bit strange for me, so this is not my asam fish of choice.
Though I have no complaints about the fish as it was a generous slice and it was fresh. I also give credit to the generous use of daun kesum and bunga kantan.
This one (can't remember the name) was not so successful because it is a dish that needs longer braising. So the chicken was still quite firm and the aroma and flavors of the ginger was muted.
I went to the beverage kiosk and got me a Milo Dinosaur out of curiosity hah..hah.... This is more for kids I think. It was quite messy as the Milo powder dropped all over the place.
I have not stepped into The Starling for many days now and I worry that the food outlets are going through a very tough time during this MCO 3.0.
