Ando: In celebrating Belle’s graduation at UNSW, we decided to eat somewhere close by after her graduation ceremony. We were craving Singaporean and Malaysian food. I have never studied at UNSW but if I did, I would make my way to Kingsford for breakfast, lunch, dinner and study breaks! Kingsford has an extensive range of Asian restaurants and most of them at a very affordable price!
This was my second time at Sinma Laksa House and I know that I couldn’t leave without eating their Singapore Chili Crab! But first we needed to start with some satay sticks!
Chicken Satay ($11.8). 6 skewers grilled to perfection with peanut sauce and salad. On the menu it said that you need to ask for rice cakes if you want but somehow we got them with our dish.
Singapore Chili Crab (Market Price). We paid $129.20 for our 1.9kg crab so that’s $68/kg. This national dish was served with crushed crab pieces cooked to perfection in an egg-thickened sweet and spicy gravy. I am in love with this sauce! We ordered 12 fried mantous to accompany the crab. Dipping the fried mantous in the sauce was pure heaven!
Salt & Pepper Chicken (S$17.5 L$23.5). We ordered the large dish. Deep fried crispy chicken in a salt and pepper batter spiced up with Chinese five spice powder.
Butter Squid (S$19.5 L29.5). Another large dish, the squid was deep fried in butter served with their special egg yolk crisps. Anything deep fried and buttery has got my tick of approval!
Beef Rendang (S$14.5 L$17.8). Succulent beef pieces cooked till tender in dry spicy sauce. We ordered the large dish and finished it quite quickly!
Rotis are always needed with curry!
