*short post. Don’t worry Joe, my reply to your tag will be done soon! =)
Of late, I’ve been craving butter chicken and would ask rif to eat it with me at Sin Lai Ping. We go there quite often; I reckon at least twice a month. Everytime we go there, we would order the same thing – butter chicken (RM12) and sweet & sour pork (RM10). Did I not mention we are creatures of habit? =PThe thick gravy is creamy, smooth and mildly spicy. I love the aroma the cili padi omits in the gravy. And the fried boneless chicken leg is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Good enough on its own, but together with butter gravy, it is shiokness, especially with white rice. I find the sweet and sour pork gravy slightly on the sweet side. However, the pork pieces are nice and meaty, and coated with the right amount of batter. Some places tend to drench the pork pieces with gravy, causing the dish to be soggy but Sin Lai Ping’s version is lightly coated with tomato gravy so the pork pieces remain crispy. Overall, I find this decent. Dinner cost RM24 inclusive of 2 plates of rice. Pretty reasonable for Bangsar standards, don’t you think?
Food: 6.5/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: The food is decent and I like coming here because it’s close to home.
