Sayong Kitchen @ Dungun, Damansara Heights

Aidilfitri Greetings: Here's a solid selection of Malay fare at the recently opened Sayong Kitchen, perfectly positioned for Damansara Heights' office crowd.

Nangka Gulai Lemak Kuning (RM3), a recipe that gives traditional cooking a good name.

Ikan Masin Tumis Darat (RM3), the kind of savory-gravy food to partner with plenty of rice.

Daging Masak Hitam (RM4), not triumphantly tender but not terribly tough either.

Ayam Gajus (RM4), simple but reasonably satisfactory. Can't say much more than that.

Bubur Lambok (RM3), creamy & tasty. Comfort carbs, always welcome.

Plenty of kuih-muih: kuih cara berlauk to seri ayu, cucur badak to bingka ubi.

Sayong Kitchen,
Ground Floor, Bangunan Malaysian Re, Lorong Dungun, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.
Open Mon-Fri, 7am-6pm

    1. Missyblurkit: heheh, ya, a little oasis of time-honored recipes in a modern-ish setting. that fish recipe was quite yummy, though i guess since it's ikan masin, it needs rice to pair with it and counter the saltiness :D

  4. That area every now and then pops up with some surprises. It's not a spot I usually pass by chance, but worth investigating every now and then.

    1. The Yum List: true, the large number of office workers and students in this area means that cafes will mushroom up to cater to them. so yep, definitely a district to inspect =)

    1. Ciki: thanks! yeah, it's been quite awhile since i had a post on malay food, and probably none at all during ramadan. ooo, i'm actually not usually a fan of nangka, durian or cempedak in most cases, but am trying to appreciate them heheh LD
