It was raining cats and dogs and more last Friday and Saturday. As you know by now, many areas in Selangor and other states experienced devastating floods and I count myself fortunate not to be affected.
I was at work on Friday and left early. I was lucky that it was only drizzling on my way home and a little later after that it started pouring.
When I got up on Saturday, it was still raining and the intensity of the rain waxed and waned and got really heavy mid morning. I was expecting two deliveries that day (one arrived while the other was postponed to Sunday).
Before my partner left for work, I packed him lunch. Then I proceeded to get my housework done, all the while worrying if my deliveries would arrive. Then slightly past 1:00pm, these arrived in the midst of the rain - my rainy rendang.
I couldn't put my usual box outside the gate and ran out with this basket to receive the delivery. I salute the delivery guy for doing his job in the heavy downpour.
These are mushroom rendang, my second time ordering from mushroomlah.com. I had been wanting to try this vegan rendang for some time now but was unable to because they only deliver Saturdays. Back then, I had to visit my parents on Saturdays and could not be around to take delivery.
My first order was a week prior and I was so impressed with the rendang that I had to order more. The rendang is freshly cooked and delivered on Saturdays and you can pre-order days ahead from the website.
The freshly cooked rendang can only be delivered in the Klang Valley but fret not because there is also another version - the Travel Pack which can be purchased directly from mushroomlah.com or via Shoppee.
Look at that. You would be forgiven for thinking that it is beef rendang had you not been told that it is actually mushrooms! I packed some rendang (from the earlier batch) for my partner's lunch and when he came home, he asked me "Was that beef?" hah..hah... Of course not I told him. How can I feed you beef when you don't eat beef?
I made a comparison between the Travel Pack...
Both are quite close in taste but I feel that the freshly cooked mushroom rendang has a slight edge over the Travel Pack.
I am a fan of this mushroom rendang because the taste is really fantastic, as what an awesome rendang (there are many versions of rendang of course) should taste and best of all, I am not even bothered that it is cooked with mushrooms and not meat. This is great for those days when I want to go meat-free.
I have been enjoying this mushroom rendang and I highly recommend it (no, I am not paid to promote this product hah..hah...).
