Project 365 Sat 21 Nov 09

On top of the hugest day running around shopping and finishing off some Christmas stuff, I met up with a few friends for dinner at Malaysia Gardens.

The sign as you walk up the stairs to the restaurant.

It's an interesting place in Clayton Rd, Clayton ... and the food is authentic ... not like the Italian or Chinese or whatever restaurant that serves what they think the market wants ... Malaysia Gardens serves what's sold in Malaysia ... and the locals flock there.

A beautiful chilli pi-pi. One of my favourites.

It's always so crowded but I love the view of the Clayton train station and Clayton Rd, and the almost Coles cafeteria atmosphere ... it's all about the food and rightly so.

The best oyster omelet I've ever had ... crispy and beautiful.

One of them, Phil, is a huge traveller and foodie and he not only picks the restaurants but I generally let him pick what I should have.

One of the three national dishes ... Nasi Lemak. This one always looks so pretty.

And Malaysia Gardens last night was no different.

Curried chicken ... with lovely flaky, slightly greasy roti.

How beautiful does the food look?

Salt and pepper squid ... I want some more of this right now! LOL

And cheap ... 6 mains between five people and drinks each for under $100.

This one is Char Kway Teoh.

It doesn't get much better.
