Restoran Felice, New Town (PJ State), Petaling Jaya, Selangor

I first read about Restaurant Felice which boasts authentic Malaccan Portuguese cuisine and seafood, in the newspaper. We went to check it out with hubby's family not too long ago.

We had the belacan brinjal (RM8.00) which I think was baked and then topped with sambal belacan paste. The brinjal's texture was still firm and each slice tasted really buttery. This was my favourite dish of the night.
The Portuguese Roast chicken (RM13.50) was had a gravy that was reminiscent of tau eu bak, except cooked with chicken and green peas. It was tasty fare, stir-frying the roasted chicken in a soy-based gravy enhanced its taste.

Curry dabel (RM13.50) was a very thick chicken and potatoes curry which had a salty tang to it. The paste was obviously made of grounded fresh herbs as opposed to curry powder.

The fried Japanese tofu here (RM8.00) teemed with prawn pieces.

Another hit was the sambal squid (RM15.00) which would have been even better with petai thrown in! Spicy, tangy, fresh.

I really liked the baked senangin fish (RM32.00) which tasted very much like fresh otak-otak, courtesy of the thick gravy that topped the fish. Lovely!

The total bill for the 6 of us totalled RM95.00. Prices here are pretty reasonable, and for folks who like spicy and authentic Portuguese food, this is a good spot.

The restaurant is next to RHB Bank in PJ State, facing the MBPJ building.
