Sambal Prawns with Petai. Unbelievably crunchy and fat, and the sambal was amazingly shrimpy and chewy to such a degree that it almost felt like a featured mini ingredient than a mere paste. The petai wasn’t particularly stinko – perhaps thanks to the charms of the sambal, its controversy was reduced to a slight bitterness. This was $6.50 (!) without any imposed GST and service charge (!!) in a comfy and spacious cafe setting (!?!). Recommended for sure. 4/5
