Rafs has been living in the Seputeh area for the past few years. Soon, she will be moving to a new place and finally be rid of any bad vibes left over from idiot ex. So while I am happy for new beginnings, I'm also upset that she only brought me to Siu Siu for the first time recently. How could it be that this thriving neighbourhood restaurant escaped our attention for so long? I mean, its literally down the road! Incidentally, there is also a superb nasi lemak stall nearby.
The night was cool and the place was buzzing with large Chinese families. After we ordered, my pupils dilated to the size of saucers watching mouth-watering dishes fly past our table. The food looked fantastic and I have to pat myself on the back for taking photos and not diving in immediately. We had sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken, homemade tofu with braised minced pork, oil-drowned aubergine in claypot and token vegetable. The pork resembled crisp pieces of batter and the lemon chicken even crispier. The pale and wobbly tofu was a delicious contrast to the garlicky pork. I could've had a massage with the amount of oil in the aubergine but it was utterly sublime and worth the potential heart attack. I've been back twice since and apart from that one time we had to wait 1.5 hours for our food, it was been fantastic! Great simple Chinese cooking in a relaxed and open environment. After dinner you can take a drive through the cemetery and entertain your fellow passengers with horror stories.
