In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Aneka Rasa

Finally got around to checking out Aneka Rasa, a new Malaysian place on Harvard Ave. It's similar to Penang, and from what I understand not technically an offshoot, but I think the owner used to work at Penang or something like that.

green tea ice cream green tea ice cream Very good overall. The roti canai is good, and almost exactly the same as Penang. I still like the thicker, doughier roti prata at Straits back home though. The curry dip is awesome. The Hainanese chicken was great - very tender, even the white meat. Rice was good too... Can't remember how it compares to the Straits one. Haven't had that there in a while. The green beans sambal were very crisp. Perfect texture, but not as much flavor as at Straits in SF or at Tropika in Vancouver. The pieces of shrimp weren't that great though. The ice cream was surprisingly good (and big). Not too sweet and just the right creaminess. I'm not usually a fan of green tea ice cream, but this was good. Gotta try the mango next time. Will definitely go back.
