White House @ Petaling Jaya

This cozy kopitiam is operated by the family of a prominent opposition politician, only a few doors away from his party's headquarters.

Nasi kerabu. Bland rice; not moist at all. But thankfully, everything else on the plate _ from the ikan percik to the budu & ulam _ was well-prepared and tasty enough to salvage this.

Nasi lemak. Also unsuccessful, since the rice lacked any fragrance or fluffiness whatsoever, while the fried chicken was tough. During off-peak hours, customers might also be disheartened by cold/lukewarm rice and accompaniments.

Ayam percik (creamy sauce, chewy meat) & fried keropok (crisp, not too oily). Perhaps we were there too late in the evening; things might have been better earlier.

Milo Panas & Kopi Kelantan.

The outlet's business hours are rather inconvenient for most of us who work in the city, since it closes around 7pm on weekdays and isn't open on weekends.

Nevertheless, staff members here are helpful and welcoming. Free wi-fi is available.
