What you see, is not what you get. While I enjoyed my Mee Cha Long at The Chaiwalla Restaurant in Banting, Alex Wong MF ordered a salmon steak. Who can fault him? It looked so tempting on the menu (inset). What arrived looked drastically different. I think we should all call out restaurants who use pictures of meals on menus that are overwhelmingly different.
It was RM 16 (expensive possibly due to last minute price gouging by traders). She asked me how to cook it. I was too lazy to google for recipes and in the evening, I discovered Asam Pedas Ikan Salmon. Her own fusion food. Haha. She used some spicy tamarind paste and garnished it with sprigs of Coriander or Chinese Parsley or Cilantro. It turned out quite delicious.
