Kaya Malay Bistro – Solid Malaysian Food in Fairview
Back in September, we revisited Kaya Malay Bistro with some friends (see our first visit here).
The Ginger Citrus Soda ($4) is a hand-pressed concoction made with lemon, lime, orange, soda and mint served in a mason jar. Yes, I know I’m not a fan of drinks served in mason jars. If you put that aside, the drink itself was very refreshing.
It wouldn’t be a visit to a Malaysian restaurant without an order of Roti ($6) with the characteristic crispy skin and light and fluffy centre.
The Sambal Green Beans with Prawns ($10) is one of our staple veggie dishes. Love how crunchy the beans are.
Our next dish was the Pad Thai ($10) which came with shrimp, tofu, and veggies stir-fried with rice noodles.
The Red Duck Curry ($17) was a little difficult to eat because it came with bone-in duck legs. I know bone-in meat is supposed to be more tender but I’ve always preferred boneless duck in curry… so much easier to eat.
I was a bit surprised that the Spicy Spinach ($10) wasn’t very spicy… there was a hint of heat but almost the same as regular spinach.
Lastly, we had the Rendang Beef ($14) stewed in a coconut milk sauce. The tender chunks of beef were cooked perfectly. I wonder if they use this beef in their murtabak – that would be awesome.
