Recently my family & I have been craving for Sarawakian food (Go Seghawak!) which is quite rare to be found in KL. We know a few spots including one hawker stall in Wangsa Maju, however we have been wanting to try the food at the restaurant of the Sarawakian singer, Deja Moss. For those of you who are non-Malaysians, Sarawak is the largest state in Malaysia and is located at East Malaysia, the Borneo nearby Indonesia to be exact. A beautiful, tropical region, infamous for its barely touched flora and fauna and its jungle is the habitat for the largest flower in the world, the Rafflesia. I visited its capital Kuching once when I was 11, fell in love with it (especially the mesmerizing Cultural Village) and hoping to visit it again in the future insha Allah. I especially hope to explore its jungle and caves at their National Park and visit the long houses belong to the numerous tribes of Sarawak, insha Allah. =)
Ok let's start with the address of this dainty restaurant & cafe :
Hadeeja Kek Lapis Segar
No.1 - G, Jalan UP 1/2,
Taman Ukay Perdana, Ukay Perdana,
68000, Ampang, Selangor.
Business Hours: 10am - 10pm
Tuesday till Sunday.
Closed on Mondays.
It might be quite tricky to find this cafe at first but just focus on the sign of the street and soon insha Allah you will find it. I read that before there was some black magic done to this shop, and indeed I could remember a few years back we tried to search for the restaurant twice, we could not find it at all. Alhamdulillah now she has overcame that problem, and to the culprit, please, any attempt of dimming the candle of others won't make your shine any brighter.
|Deja's husband caught in sight. =D|
The restaurant, as I said is dainty. It's small but comfortable. I love its white interior, which makes it feel clean and tidy, but not to the extent that it gives a too hygienic feeling like a clinic.
|Ok my camera did not do any justice to the real atmosphere. Actually it was white and lovely, and as you can see there's a couch there for you to sit and read magazines.|
What I like most about the decor, is the English style table setting with white eating utensils. It feels just lovely. =)
Alright now let's start with the dining. Tell you what, I forgot my notepad I had written the details on their tissue. =D
|Ummi & I ordered Asam Boi Juice. RM 3.00|
Taste pretty good.
|Nana ordered Soya (Soy Bean Milk). RM 3.00|
We were happy to try this famous traditional Sarawakian dish named Umai.
RM 8 (for 1 person), RM 12 (for 2 persons)
Fresh fishes & seafood. Mixed well with onions and lime juice. For us it tasted like Kerabu Sotong or Thai Squid Salad. Quite nice.
|The noodles are garnished with beef strips, vegetables and fried onion.|
|Since it's the special edition of the noodles, it comes with Sup Tulang (Literally Bones Soup) which tastes as good as Ummi's Sup Tulang. The beef was tender and the hot soup is delish.|
|Nevertheless they quite like the Sambal (Chili Paste) that comes together with the Laksa and said even the Sambal tasted different, unique, but nice.|
|Oh yes also to be known, Hadeeja also provides hamper & hantaran (bridal gifts) making service. The boxes and its handicraft is very Sarawakian which makes them so exclusive looking and the rate starts from RM 150 if I'm not mistaken.|
|Too many choices to choose from? Do not fret, because they provide fresh & moist samples for us to try before we order.|
