My friend WanHua was disappointed that Adam Road Food Centre doesn't has grilled sambal stingray on Mondays, and we decided to head nearby along Coronation Road for Curry Wok, a small eatery that is known for its traditional home-cooked style of Asian dishes. They serve quite a bit of pork dishes here like braised knuckles, making it uneasy for me but at least my friends were all agreeable to go no pork no lard with our dishes.
Vegetable Curry: 7.5/10
You can tell by the colour that it's very much closer to that of Lontong, and it does taste rather similar as well. The curry wasn't too thick nor watery, it was just fine.
Onion Omelette: 6/10
Sambal KangKong: 8/10
I like the sambal a lot, it had the spicy kick to it. Vegetables were very fresh and crunchy too.
Beef Rendang: 5.5/10
Beef was very tender, but I found that it had too much fat, and for a seasoned rendang eater, this was nothing to shout about. Ordinary.
My grandmother often buys this if she visits Malaysia over the weekend. It's basically a large slab of otah rather than the thin slice you have in the typical leaves. Otah, for the uninitiated, is usually spicy fish paste, though of course we have other flavours like sotong (squid), prawn and crab. The best and the usual one to me is always fish. And here at Curry Wok, they fried it nicely and it was very tasty indeed.
Very friendly, and pretty prompt.
We paid close to $48 for everything, including drinks and rice.
