One Night Only. The Jaya One Foodcrawl, Part 1 – Brisik

A group of bloggers (mainly food bloggers) were invited to an pre-arranged food crawl recently at Jaya One by Ramesh. 18 bloggers. 6 venues. 1 night only.

*Cue music from the song of One Night Only.
“I’ve got one night only, one night only
That’s all I have to spare
One night only, let’s not pretend to care”

Our first stop of the night was Brisik, a little cosy restaurant which is decked in a myriad of colours and serve predominantly Siamese, Indon and Sundanese cuisine. Pricing here starts from RM9 to RM42; set lunch at RM 14.90 while set dinner RM 22.50. We were told that the signature dishes here were Ayam Penyet and Sundanese Flying Fish but we didn’t get to try both that night. Instead, we were served with the Combo Brisik.

Priced at RM 18 for 2 person, the platter consists of Satay Serai (chicken on lemongrass skewer), Satagor (mashed beancurd and potato mix with minced chicken and mix vegetables), emping melinjo and Gado-Gado (vegetables served with peanut sauce). The Satay Serai was rather tasty; moist grilled chicken redolent of lemongrass fragrance, Satagor was ok as it was a little bit mushy. It would be better if more spices were added to it, while the Gado-Gado was forgettable.

Kerabu Mangga (mango salad) with cili padi and anchovies was ok to me, I personally think that it would be much better if the mango they use are younger (yields a more sourish salad).

Hong Kee Mua Chee & Peanut Gruel

To find this place, drive along Jalan Queen in Pasir Pinji. When you see a small stall under a tree and in front of a single-storey house with sloping driveway, you’ve reached your destination.

The blistering hot sun doesn’t deter the floggers (Jackson, Precious Pea, Teckiee & WMW) from taking pictures and help themselves with the peanut desserts here (we actually took longer time to take pictures rather than enjoying the food!)

At RM2.00 per bowl (used to be RM1.50) and served warm, the peanut gruel was smooth, creamy, fragrant and has the right balance of sweetness to it. As I’m a big fan of peanut, I used to like peanut gruel a lot when I was younger but then, I found those sold elsewhere were either diluted or has the rancid smell to it, hence my interest in peanut gruel diminished gradually. Hong Kee’s version definitely is the better one I’ve tasted so far.

And since we’re here, we couldn’t just leave without trying the mua chee (glutinuous rice flour cake with peanut, RM2). While most proprietors cut up the dough with metal spatula, Hong Kee pinch the balls of dough from a damp-cloth covered pot and toss them individually in the grounded peanut and fine sugar mixture. You could feel the crunch of the grounded peanut and sugar once you popped them in your mouth, and again, the sweetness was just right while the grounded peanut were really crunchy – freshly grounded peanuts, that’s it!
