Jalan Alor, Melbourne [Update]

Went to Jalan Alor again today after the last time I visited which was when they were just opened for a week. Took this opportunity to try the other dishes on the menu.

Didn't manage to take any photos of the restaurant for my last post so here are shots of the place!

Honey Kam Quat (left), Special Air Barli with Lemon (hot and cold)

Air Barli which is a barley drink commonly available in Malaysian kopitiams (coffe shops). Jalan Alor's Special Air Barli are boiled fresh everyday with barley instead of premixed solutions and you have a choice of adding in lemon, lime or kam quat (Chinese lime). It is a very refreshing drink whether it is hot or cold.

Honey Kam Quat is also a refreshing drink but a bit sweeter compared with the other two.

Singapore Fried Noodles

Again one of those dishes that I like from this restaurant. Their Singapore Fried Noodles is cooked with tomato paste instead of curry powder like what you can commonly find in other restaurants. Also, Singapore Fried Noodles are suppose to be dry and the one I had was perfect with two huge prawns! The addition of lettuce and bean sprouts adds a crunchy texture and freshness to the dish itself.

Curry Chicken Rice

I've got nothing much to say about this dish as it is rather normal. Maybe some potatoes in the curry would be much nicer.

Kon Loh Ayam Panggang Pan Mee

Tried the Kon Loh Pan Mee today as well which has Ayam Panggang (barbecue chicken). You can taste the difference in texture of the pan mee as the noodles are freshly made by hand in the restaurant. It is just like the difference of freshly made pasta with the commercially made. The mixture of the sauce for the noodles has a well balanced taste of sweetness, saltiness as well as the aroma from the sesame oil.
