Recently, I have been going to Kampung Baru quite a lot. There are many good Malay restaurants in Kampung Baru and in my very limited search for good Malay food, Rosdet Tomyam Restaurant is one of the best I’ve tried here.
One thing I notice at any Malay restaurants which is seriously lacking in other restaurants is fast service. It took only about 10 minutes upon order for our food to arrive at our table. Drinks came even earlier – only a few minutes.
This is Clams cooked with Rosdet’s special spicy sauce (Lala Masak Pedas) for RM6.00. The clams were not exactly fresh but the spicy sauce was very good. If the clams were fresh, it would definitely taste better.
The fish buried underneath those leafy vegetables is a “Kembong” fish. Upon the recommendation by a restaurant staff which took our order, we ordered the Kembong cooked with Rosdet’s special sauce. It was spicy and sweet at the same time, almost like a Thai dish.
These BBQ Cockles / Kerang Bakar @ RM5 are not exactly huge in terms of its size, but were quite good. The cockles on its own were quite bland and it pairs very well with the nutty, salty and sweet sauce served alongside this dish.
Since Rosdet specialises in tomyam, ordering a tomyam dish is a no brainer. This is Rosdet’s Seafood Tomyam @ RM6. There are other sizes available here but we opted for the small one in order for us to try out the many other dishes available here. It doesn’t taste exactly like a Thai tomyam but more towards a tomato based spicy soup. It was rich and quite spicy.
The Fried Egg / Telur Dadar was quite good as well. Quite oily but very fragrant.
Flavourful and crunchy stir-fried asparagus with prawns and onions for RM10.00 only.
If you have room for desserts, you should try the Mango Sticky Rice with Coconut sauce. It’s RM6.00 for three sticky ball rice with half a mango and coconut sauce.
Overall, we were quite pleased with our meal. I would most definitely recommend this Malay restaurant to anyone who wish to have a good decent Malay meal in KL.
