What were you doing during the few days holiday on the recently Independence Day celebration? I was at home since the bus ticket to Ipoh were fully sold out 2 weeks before the holiday starts. Most of my friends/floggers/bloggers have their own plans for the long weekend except me, so I ended up makan diri sendiri for two and a half day. *sobs*
Fortunately, on the third day, I got a surprise call from WMW, saying that she’ll be coming to Cheras with Jackson to have dinner with me (Yay! *jumping up and down*) and asked me to figure out where to dine. Immediately, I thought of a Thai seafood place in Ampang and without hesitation, I suggest that place.
We finally reached at Nong & Jimmy at Taman Cahaya, after made several calls to my friend, asking for directions. WMW claimed that she came here before but that was few years back. Jackson on the other hand, never been here or heard about it before.
WMW: 2 plates enough ah? Make it 3!
Jackson: Whoa..! I think that’s too much laa.
Me: Jackson, believe me, later you’ll say, “It’s not enough laa!”
WMW: Yalah, it’s very good, you know.
Ahem… guess that he’s freaked out by our greediness. Anyway, we only ordered 2 plates as the dishes started to come not long after that.
Me being a non seafood fan, felt in love with their sotong bakar (grilled squid). The slightly charred squid gave a pleasant barbequed, smoky flavour. I had this just on it’s own, without dipping them into any chilli sauce.
Of course we can’t miss the Tom Yam Seafood soup. Loaded with goodies such as prawns, squid rings, button mushrooms etc. The soup itself is very flavourful, with just the right amount of spiciness and sourness. Milder version is available upon request.
And finally, we ended the meal with one portion of Black Pepper Crab. The crab, needless to say, was very fresh and we took our own sweet time licking and sucking the black pepper sauce glazed crab shells. (Precious Pea, we shall come here together one day!)
Thanks to dear WMW and Jackson again for the wonderful company.
