Eats Sini @ Subang Jaya

Some interesting fare here for Subang residents: Start with Eats Sini's revisionist take on Malaysia's national dish, with nasi lemak reconfigured as mild-tasting breaded rice balls (reminiscent of Italian arancini), stuffed with shishamo (the substitute for ikan bilis) and hard-boiled quail egg, accompanied by Japanese cucumbers, crispy kailan, olive powder, crushed peanuts and sambal (RM30). It's a successfully eye-catching presentation that first popped up nearly two years ago at Le Noir in TREC KL, where Eats Sini's chef-founder formerly helmed the kitchen.

Other potentially crowd-pleasing temptations include the tasty butternut squash risotto with crispy sage and ricotta cheese (RM30; it's worth adding RM10 for a topping of brined roasted chicken), squid with avocado puree and chilli sauce (RM25) and cheesecake layered with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and salted caramel (RM17).

  1. I like the word play here! Instead of using pure English or Malay for the signage, the owners decided to marry both languages. =)

    Btw, is this shop in the same row as Sri Melur or further up the road?

  2. Eeeee...I get put off when I see ikan bilis without the heads and insides removed. I believe those were ikan bilis? I would give them due credit for their presentation though, generally nice, different from the rest.

    1. Suituapui: ooo, these were actually shishamo, which you will probably recognise from japanese eateries :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shishamo

  3. The way of the shishamo stuck out from the rice ball looked funny @_@
