So the other day I went to Sambal Hijau at Kampung Sungai Penchala for some Ikan Bakar. And that place was packed! There were so many people queuing for food and waiting for empty tables. We couldn’t find any empty table and had to wait for a while before we could find one.
Just look at the crowd. This is just one part of the seating area. There are two other seating sections available there.
There are arrays of food – fishes, chickens, prawns, squids, vegetables and etc all cooked in different ways of more than 80 dishes. If you take 1 dish a day, you’ll need at least 80 days to try each and every dish. That’s a lot of dishes coming from one place.
There are a variety of ikan bakar and they include mackerel and keli fish. Although it looks a bit burn here, but it taste great.
In fact, it goes really well with their sauces. You can choose either to have their chili padi with red onion and soya sauce or their lime and chili sauce or both. I took both as they both goes really well with my ikan bakar.
You may also add more spices to suit your taste.
If you are coming here to try their food, I would recommend you to come a bit earlier in the afternoon, that’s when the food are freshly cooked from the kitchen (I think).
Don’t worry too much about the crowd and the lack of parking space as the patrons are more than willing to share tables here. Plus there are lots of FREE parking spaces behind the restaurant. Don’t worry about the heat too as the cooking is done at an allocated space beside the restaurant’s main seating area.
They have cookies and desserts as well. Overall, I think their food is good and the atmosphere here is great. Looks like I would be back to try more dishes. If you have been here before or have not been here before but would like to try their food, drop me a message below and let me know what you think about Sambal Hijau.
