Was sad to see Margharita's at my old haunt at East Coast Road closing down after so many long years. In its place is Restaurante Comida Mexicana and feeling peckish, I decided to give it a try.
Surprise, surprise! I was greeted with many familiar faces. The property is run by the same outfit and the proprietress greeted us with her usual wide bubbly smile. She then went on to tell us that the food here is even more value-for-money, with bigger portions and prepared from the finest and freshest ingredients.
Highly recommended are the Carintas - Mexican pulled pork done the traditional way and the Grilled Chipotle Fish Burrito. Top off your perfect meal with the Tiramisu dessert.
Just goes to show that old things just don't fade away. They become better with age!
Top it off with some good old soya bean milk and pork porridge. Yum!
Over the weekend, I had a sudden craving for murtabak. So it was off to my old haunt around the Jalan Tua Kong area in search for a good roti prata outlet.
I ended up at the Springleaf Prata Place off Jalan Tua Kong.
The recommendation by folks who have visited the place was the Ultimate Murtabak.
But alas, it was not my idea of murtabak - filled with cheese and mushrooms, it just did not go well with the curry sauce. Put it down to the Silver Generation's resistance to change and on the stubborn insistence that the good old days are always the best. Murtabak should taste like.... well, like murtabak!
