BENG NAKI KUMI! (Kristang language)
It means Come Here and Eat!
It's the month of Ramadhan, I get to join the buka puasa crowd at Simply Mel's.
Thanks to Aly for the lovely invitation :)
Simply Mel's, a new restaurant serving Malacca Portuguese cuisine is located conveniently at The Sphere, Bangsar South. Family recipe is Simply Mel's highlight. The dishes are homely taste and the best thing(s) I find are their sambal, cincalok and anything to do with the chilli and spices.
For main course and dessert, you could choose from 3 different sets from their Ramadhan promotion.
We kicked start with something sweet to break fast.
Buah Kurma, homemade Onde-onde and Mel's Pulut & Kaya
Then, continued with Appetizer Platter of Ulam, 2 kinds of Sambal Belacan, and fluffy Cincalok fritters.
ohhh, the darker colour of sambal was really fiery hot!!!
Love the appetizing cincalok!
On the main courses:
Set A (RM 38+) consists of Serai Chicken, Kembung Rebus, Kangkung Belacan, Ketupat/Rice. The dessert will be Sago Biji Gula Melaka
Set B (RM 48+) comes with Beef Curry Malayu, Kembung Rebus, Kacang Bendi Udang Kering, Ketupat/Rice. Dessert is Pulut Hitam.
Set C (RM 58+) comes with Pineapple Curry with Prawn, Kembung Rebus, Kacang Botol Sambal, Ketupat/Rice. The desserts are Pulut Hitam and selection of fresh fruits
Each set comes with homemade jelly rose sirap
Pulut Hitam was quite different from what we usually had. Additional of mata kucing or dried longan gave extra sweetness to the dessert. Do add in the very very very thick santan based on your personal preferences into your Pulut Hitam
Sago Biji Gula Melaka
Besides the Ramadhan menu, Simply Mel's also serves a la carte dishes such as their signature Keluak Curry, Chicken Seybah, Crab stuffing, Chicken Pongteh and many many more.
During the month of Ramadhan, Simply Mel's is featuring the Malaysian's favourite - Durian flavoured ice cream by The Last Polka, in addition to their selection of Salted Gula Melaka, Nutella and Strawberry Cream Cheese.
