Restoran Sri Melaka (KK FoodieVenture #72)

I’m going to (re)start my KK foodie-venture with an eatery nearest to my accommodation at that time, and also one of the many places that was initially on my wish list. I’ve frequently read glowing reviews on Restoran Sri Melaka even before I’d discovered their whereabouts. So it was a no brainer for me to try them out this time around, since my hotel was just around the corner to the restaurant. By the way, they’re located at Jalan Laiman Diki, within the in-famous Kampung Air area.

I admit that the main reason why I was interested in the restaurant was because of their Assam Fish, which was mentioned several times by previous patrons in Tripadvisor. Since I was there with my partner (yup, I practically ‘forced’ him to accompanied me again), we’d ordered their small sized dish (as oppose to the other choices, which were the medium & large sizing) and I must say that I was impressed. I’m not really into seafood (the exact opposite to my partner) so I can’t really comment on the freshness of the fish itself but what I can verify here was that the gravy was just right in terms of taste. It was not overly sour and the spice level just hit the mark for my dear partner not to sweat profusely while eating them. We’d coupled the dish with some Nasi Goreng Kampung which was just okay. The overall pricing were certainly (very) above average for somebody who’s from Tawau like me but probably considered reasonable by others. But do check your bills thoroughly before leaving though, as you might be charge with something that might be err… ‘confusing’ such as the ‘towels’ although we were only given paper tissues to used, that were not even wet for crying out loud. Well, at least that’s what I thought ‘towels’ should be right?

Other than that…

Food – 4/5 (that Assam Fish is definitely a winner!)
Price – 3/5 (everybody else said that it was ‘reasonable’ but let’s just agree to disagree on that okay)
Service – 3/5 (pleasant enough minus the welcoming smiles)
D├ęcor – 3/5 (reminds me of an old fashioned Chinese restaurant)
Location – 4/5 (it’s also not too far off from a hotel called Ruby Hotel)
