Mum's Place @ Damansara Perdana

Sunday night saw us in this restaurant which Heather has always wanted to bring us. Apparently a very popular home style Malacca nyonya cuisine with strong Portuguese influence.

Pictures of the restaurant owner taken with famous people and dignitaries gracing almost all the walls.

As expected, we were busy taking pictures of the place, the vase, the napkins, the forks, the serviettes, the floor, the frames... so Heather busied herself with the ordering, as expected.

Prawn Sambal Petai. Very tasty. And very spicy. And makes you have second helping of rice.

Deep fried crispy honey glazed sotong (squid). A very interesting dish with an unusual texture.

A favourite! The otak otak is deep fried, and served with a special sauce.

Lemak Kuning Fish Head. This dish was so deliciously creamy and looked so deceivingly mild but boy, it was furiously spicy. Natalie was panting by her third spoonful, gulping down gallons of ice tea in between mouthful of this. Megat started sweating halfway through his rice. But Heather happily slurping this up. A must try.

Heather's favourite fried rice. It was tasty, but overshadowed by the rest of the dishes that went best with steamed white rice. K finished it.

The cendol which I enjoyed very much. The rest had given up by then and were utterly full so I had it all by myself. The cendol, gula melaka, red beans teamed with santan and shaved ice...irresistible combination. My sweet tooth was satisfied.

We also managed to have a lil pre-birthday celebration for K. Heather bought cupcakes from Marmalade and decorated them with M&M's. Can you make out what she tried to write?

(This pic is shot upside down but it's supposed to say: DADDY BDAY :) :) :) )

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! We love you!
