Arumugam @ Jalan Ampang

I realised that blogspot has a new feature of "auto saving your entry as a draft" and because this pictures took a hell lot of time to load, i didnt trust the function and actually publish it.. and i wake up to find some have already commented on the whereabouts..haha guess the pictures are damn yummy eh?

Its going to be hard to describe the whereabouts of this place..but imagine this stall right opposite Ampang Point..got it? Anyways.. a very dim shot of the place..

Its not much..but it gives you a feel how dark it actually is..its an open air corner stall..thats about it..

Starting off with some satay from their neighbouring stall..it was a good balance of fats and meat..so all was good so far..

Spinach paste..it actually tasted abit bland and cold..but mix it with the naan..it scored better..

Minced lamb..again this was so so..oh dear..what happened to the good food my friend promised me??

The main actor has arrived..the cheese naan..the cheese was properly distributed throughout the whole piece of naan and the naan was very fluffy..you could eat this one by one by one.. Next time around, i have to order the "to die for" butter naan..aiks..this is getting sinful by the second..

With every main actor, theres a main actress..the tandoori chicken..one of the best marinated chicken i had so far..the chicken remained succulent although the breast meat might be abit tough, but who knows?.. Going for RM 4.50 a serve which is pretty decent..the fish done the same style goes for RM8..steep but again very very well executed..

I actually had so much fun eating at this place..that i forgot the name..so the next step was to start googling..surprisingly most of the food blogs didnt appear..so i guess i am the first!..Although i did finally find the name and read abit of the history.. The owner of this place was trained in Northern Indian cuisine in a hotel..and i guess the quality and techniques was showned in the food..just top class..and i guess thats very true..because i walked off a very happy customer.. 8.8 out of 10..

Oh yeah..Halal food..

last week we went to this thai restaurant (which i forgot to take pictures again! GRRR) and the satay was so tiny, 5 of them for 10$!!

and their peanut sauce was ....goood but very different coz i think they are modified from peanut butter, im gonna try making that peanut sauce myself at home..just buy peanut butter and add in some spices and water...

We are seriously thinking about a Malaysian restaurant business here..coz there arent any!
