So I went back to Asam Pedas Premier‘s stall at Queensbay Mall’s food court, and was duly distracted by the fragrant fried chicken again, and was almost compelled to go for that again. But I managed to resist the impulse and sticked to the original plan this time.
Set Asam Pedas Pari (1 pax) – RM 13.50. RM 14.30 after GST…
For my non-Malaysian readers: set = set (duh…), asam = tamarind (sour), pedas = hot and spicy, pari = stingray. So, Set Asam Pedas Pari = Sour and Spicy Stingray Set Meal.
I was slightly disappointed with the “huge” size of the fish serving. Maybe stingray is an expensive fish? 🙄
But the asam pedas gravy is truly asam pedas.
Come to think about it, I have never eaten an asam pedas dish before. Or maybe I have but I don’t know it was asam pedas. But I thought this gravy was a wonderful gravy, at least on a neutral point of view. Really packs a terrible punch. Asam dan pedas. Fuiyooohhhh!!!
I could not finish all the gravy, there was not enough rice for me to do that.
I consider myself a spicy eater, but I am probably not the best spicy eater out there. I guess I’m just a second rate spicy eater, not a first rate one. Perhaps those orang-orang timur (east coast people), people like Phong Hong could lap the entire bowl clean.
