Jonker Street Malaysian Restaurant, Doncaster MELB

After an intensive gym session last Friday, I found myself craving for Malaysian food and decided to take a trip up to Doncaster for some much needed refueling. While being located in a quiet area, especially at night, can be a dead zone for some businesses, I was surprised to see that there still quite a few customers in the restaurant despite arriving 30 minutes before the restaurant closes.

Vast variety of choices on the menu be it ala carte to main dishes for sharing. Had no idea what to pick and decided to play safe and selected items which had a recommended logo next to it.

Pipis - the sauce was well balanced in terms of tartness, sweetness and had a mild spicy kick to it. Slurping each tasty piece of pipi off the shell heavily reminded me of my childhood days back in Malaysia. After spending copious amount of time in the gym, I was hesitant to bite into a piece of deep fried white bread but gave in eventually. It was deep fried to golden perfection yet still moist in the center - such a joy to soak it into the sauce.

Wanton noodles with pork - noodles were prepared to my liking aka not too soggy or chewy and was well seasoned.

Mi hun kue - also known as the rougher sibling of pan mee. For those unfamiliar, both pan mee and mi hun kue are doughy types of noodles and only differ by the final preparation stage whereby pan mee is made via passing through a machine and mi hun kue is torn by hand. Soup had an excellent amount of flavour depth and in terms of pricing, this $11.80 bowl of food was definitely a generous serve. Highly recommended and would gladly polish it off again.
