Having fallen in love with the restaurant a few years ago, I almost went hysterical when I found out there was going to be an Albee’s opening in Kingsford!!*jumps around in joy on Anzac Parade * So backtracking to a year ago when they first opened their doors here for Eastern residents till now: I have to admit I’ve been here way too many times, quite too many that the Malay/Chinese staff my mum although she doesn’t speak a word of Malay.
The following dishes are our must-haves:
Bro’s drink is the young coconut juice, sometimes I think we successfully lure him into spicy cuisines is only because of this drink. Very meaty coconut pieces make him order these each time. We’re not fans but this fried rice number makes us come back for more. I’ve tried their normal fried rice but take my word, make sure your dishes are fried. French bean, no Malay meal is ever complete without you and/or the water spinach when in season.
Clockwise from left to right: CKT $10.50, chicken ¼ $7.80, ½ $14.50, cake $5, milky creamy pork rib $15.80
Char – flat rice noodles stir fried with my : shrimp, Chinese sausage and eggs in a big serving makes it a winner for me. Whilst chicken is the other family’s – personally I find it too oily and I always have a little battle with the chicken skin: Do I remove the skin before eating or have it anyway since it’s so good?
cake was a take-away hence the Hello Kitty plate. cake (top layer is made of coconut milk and bottom layer is made of ). I’m a big fan of desserts made of coconut milk and but to get a good dose of - I would highly suggest hop into Passionflower (a few doors down from Albee’s) and treat yourself to a serving of .
Milky creamy pork rib fried with a milky cream based sauce get all my arteries dancing in all the right places. The cream sauce is but runny enough for you to smear your ribs all over, I know the dish is good but please don’t use your own ribs, literally.
Butter cereal king prawns $19.80
My first love in Malaysia: butter cereal king prawns. This was the highlight of my Malaysia trip a few years ago, oh and perhaps the Twin Towers and our resorts too but food-wise: this cereal dish was the serial killer of all. It captured my heart like no other even to this date. You can order this dish with/without shell, I know the lazy in you will opt without but trust my first Malay love- you would want this with the shell. The butter cereal is amazingly good that I can eat mouthfuls of it with boiled rice and still be content.
Other drinks and dishes to ensure maximum tummy satisfaction are: lemon + salted plum soda, (seafood + pork roll), chicken, pan , curry chicken, curry fish AND their curry puffs. I suggest you get a curry puff as an entrée if you’re really hungry or takeaway is always an option for those who want to eat more when dining in.
Ok, that’s enough Malay/Chinese dishes to get you going. I might just get going to an early dinner too…say maybe at the kitchen of Albee’s.
