Rempah Ratus Nasi Lemak Restaurant & Cafe, Puchong

We had wanted to explore the food in the Puchong area for ages and we were lucky enough to be invited to dine at this restaurant Rempah Ratus Nasi Lemak Restaurant And Cafe. This restaurant is just located opposite of the IOI mall. The setting reminded me of a kampug style simple dining and you can smell fragrant spices as you walk in.

The restaurant serves a variety of malay dishes "hidangan" style. We were welcome by Chef Raizal, the resident chef of this restaurant who had prepared some awesome dishes. We were served with starter, Thai Fish Cakes (RM5.80 per serving) with Thai sweet chilli sauce. We love this little fish paste as they were tasty, delicious and went very well with the sweet Thai chilli sauce.

The main dishes came once we finished the starter, the first dish was the Chicken Green Curry in Claypot (RM8 per serving). It was cooked perfectly and the sauce was gorgeous and went well with the white rice. We were informed that Chef Raizal made his own green curry paste from green chillies, coriander, cummin, lemongrass and shrimp paste. We just adored the sauce, lovely!

Next was the siakap fish cooked in 3 tastes, hot, sour and sweet (RM18 per serving). The hotness came from the chillies, sourness came from the lime juice and sweetness came from the palm sugar. The siakap fish was deep fried and then coated with the sauce.

Lastly we had the stir fried kangkung with sambal (RM8 per serving). This dish had the shrimp paste taste and with a bit of chilli but not too hot.

Overall, I like this restaurant as it gave me a very homely feeling and reminded me of my growing up. I will definitely be back for their Green Thai Curry. Rempah Ratus Nasi Lemak Restaurant & Café also do catering services for any occasions and also into ready-to-eat packed food for retail, wholesale and outdoor events.

Ah, can give it a try when I visit my friend in Puchong so that we don't have to go back to the same food again and again.
