Our appetizers arrived quickly after we had placed our orders. The Chicken Satay was grilled, served with Matahari’s own peanut sauce, and marinated with their secret mix of spices and herbs. There were two pieces of chicken satay on the two skewers with the peanut sauce on the side. I thought that the chicken meat was not tender enough and quite hard to chew through. The peanut sauce was devoid of much peanuts.
For the main, I ordered the Mee Goreng which was a plate of “egg noodles stir fried with a blend of spices, and had chicken, tofu, potato, bean sprouts, and egg”. It was “topped with crushed peanuts”. I was actually really excited to try this Malaysian/Singaporean dish but I was a little disappointed. The flavour and taste were quite good but I found the egg noodles to be quite chewy. I thought that the chicken was also too hard and could have been more tender. I didn’t see many crushed peanuts on top of the dish.
For dessert, we both ordered the Pandan Crepe which was a fresh screwpine leaf crepe filled with freshly grated coconut palm sugar. I had never tried this dessert before and it was really unique! The fresh screwpine leaf crepe was green in colour and so soft (but didn’t really taste of anything in significance). The freshly grated coconut palm sugar was nestled inside the crepe. I’m not a huge fan of coconut flakes or chunks which was what the texture of the palm sugar tasted like. I enjoyed the ice cream that was included with this dish though.
