The other variety of sauce, made of kicap manis, sugar and cut chillies. Didn't fancy this quite as much.
Our platter of stingray costs RM7.00 each, kinda pricey considering the piece was not that large. We ordered 2. Hubby complained that it tasted a bit dry and cold, we think it was prepared earlier and left to cool. They should have reheated it before serving. For me, the tamarind sauce eclipsed everything else, I was enjoying the sauce so much that any fish would have been welcomed.
The restaurant also serves nasi campur (mixed rice) with an array of traditional Malay dishes.
The fish head curry was really fragrant.
