Nothing to complain about Grandma's Nasi Lemak, for their signature dish is well worth the praise. The sambal dishes that we tried - some with prawns, some with petai - are all delectable. One dish that will make me return for more is their Chendol.

Most restaurants sell the chendol (the green thing) frozen hard. Authentic chendol are soft and chewy, but not as chewy as those pearls in bubble teas. Just soft. And Grandma's chendol is just that - soft, not frozen cheap.

You have no idea how happy I was to find a place where I can have nice chendol. Thinking about it just makes me want to go back there for more.

Major disappointment is the Asam Laksa. It served the fish in slices, and not in mashed up pieces to make up the stock of the soup like it's suppose to, therefore losing a lot of flavour. One thing good is that the prawn paste is served in a separate dish so that you may gauge how much you want in your asam laksa. Most serve it in a spoon placed in your bowl, which is already quite thoughtful to the customer. But to serve it in a separate dish entirely is going all the way out. If only they could make the soup and fish right.
