I went back to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the last week of September to meet up with my cousin who returned home from Sydney, Australia too. I took extra leaves as well so that I could spend more time in Kuala Lumpur and met up with friends.
Days before, I reconnected with my friend through Skype and we exchanged few interesting topics together. So, I called him out for gathering. Initially, I planned to meet up with him at KL Sentral, where he is working. Upon knowing that another of our friends also planned to go back KL, reunion dinner was held at Aunty Nat, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur.
Knowing each other for four years, it was so great to meet up again and shared each other interesting stories. As all of us used to be lunch buddies, choosing a place for dinner is not hard especially one of my friends wanted so much to go back to Aunty Nut for her favourite dishes.
Without hesitation, Kangkung with Belacan is a must to be ordered. It seems like we could not eat without it.
It is followed by the Fried Chicken which is also our friend’s favourite dish when eat lunch here. It is a crispy, marinated chicken. It tastes pretty close to the Malay style fried chicken and it is not very dry.
It seems like we are keep ordering dishes that we always eat, next is the Tofu with Minced Meat and heavy gravy. I remembered it was our friend’s favourite dish that our friend asked for extra rice to finish the gravy.
Lastly, we ordered the Assam Sotong. Again, it is another friend’s favourite dish. It was a great try for me because I tried Assam Fish and Assam Chicken before this. It has a strong assam taste, I wondered what kind of ingredients were used to prepare the sauce.
Four dishes for three persons as dinner was just nice. The taste of all the dishes we ordered was great. I am sure it is not because we missed the food here. The cook maintains the good standard of each dishes. Assam Sotong is the interesting one.
It is a great dinner for us that night. Chit-chatting about the past and present and exchanging laughs made the day even longer to come to an end.
It was a quiet night as well at Aunty Nut and who knows I bumped into another friend having her dinner with her husband at next table. It is my pleasure to meet her again too after our last met at Menara IGB, Mid Valley sometime ago. We nodded at each other when she left the place.
Address: No. 5-1, Mid Valley Boulevard, Mid Vally City, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Ambience: The environment on that night was quiet, suitable for spending time with friends. The restaurant is spacious and can allow a big group of 10 people sitting together at big round or rectangle tables there. On normal lunch time, this restaurant is full of people and very noisy too.
Rating: 4/5. It is nice taste and authentic for all the dishes that we ordered. The portion of each dishes is generous. The services and food serving time are reasonable where the waiters are attentive to our requests.
