Lunch at Spencer Village
A recent feed at Spencer Village (Spencer Road Shopping Centre, Thornlie)…
I bought a packet of nasi lemak from Sarindo – I chose the fried fish version (you can choose between fish and chicken). As well as a piece of tumeric-flavoured fried fish, you get fried egg, three slices of fancy cut cucumber, ikan bilis (little fried anchovies) and peanuts, with chilli sambal, all piled appetisingly on top of the coconut rice.
Jac got the nasi lemak with chicken – two fried chicken wings, and all the other trimmings.
We were really hungry – because that was just the first course! We also ordered a few dishes to share from Fook Kee.
Yong tow foo (steamed stuffed tofu, fish balls and vegetables – the black thing is stuffed eggplant, my favourite!), which we both enjoyed…
Chee cheong fun (soft rice flour rolls), topped with foo chok (fried tofu skin) and sesame seeds – this was mostly for me, as it’s one of my favourites. Jac doesn’t mind this dish, but would never actually order it herself.
Popiah, which was more for Jac than for me- Jac loves popiah and orders it often. I usually just eat a piece out of the serve and she polishes off the rest. She likes to order it “no chilli”.
I bought a $3 selection of sweets (kuih) from Straits Cuisine. I mainly bought this for the green rolled pancake thingies (what are they called? I forget!). The green pancakes are often pandan flavoured, though in this instance, I couldn’t smell or taste much pandan – they seemed to just be green-coloured – still yummy though. The filling inside is dessicated coconut cooked with gula melaka. If anyone knows the proper names for any of these, feel free to let us know in the comments… I should know this, but cannot for the life of me remember!
As you can probably guess, this was a very good feed!
