Lima Pulo

Lima Pulo @ Chow Kit

Do you like something spicy but memorable taste during this weekend? Try to go to the baba restaurant Lima Pulo at Chow Kit. I am bringing my special guest from Korea, Yoo Han, to come to taste Malaysian food, and he and his wife like the place. They do enjoy the food, and according to them, this place will be memorable. Good thing that I bring them to this Lima Pulo restaurant instead of other sites.

When we arrive here, it is fully booked by many people, and I politely ask them to give us very little space, and a good thing they can arrange one small table for three of us to have our dinner there. Seriously I never imagine that this place is famous for locals and even international tourists.

The owner of Lima Pulo, uncle John, keeps telling me that I have to order their special nasi lemak and also Asam Laksa, sadly the Asam laksa is finished, so we only order curry noodle as a replacement. I like the curry, the taste is strong and yet gentle to the tongue. I believe the broth they use is outstanding. One tip for enjoying this to the next level, squeeze lime into the soup, and it will enhance the taste of curry. This method only can be achieved when you do have good curry soup, or else the lime taste will overshadow.

Here comes the nasi lemak. I never taste such a nasi lemak before. They are doing it well for the rice, it’s smell pleasant, taste thick, and their sambal is something that you need to order more. It cost more to add sambal, but it is worth it. I guess the secret lies in the right composition of pineapple juice. Korean enjoy this sambal, as their country is famous for making great sambal.

This dish is my favorite, curry chicken. I never bored with the taste of this. The right amount of potatoes and curry goes well with rice and sambal. I even ate this with a mixture of curry noodles and also nasi lemak. I know it is kinda rojak (all mix), but still the curry chicken able to stand out among the taste. Ah, always order the upper thigh part to taste the best part. I know some prefer breast or thigh part, but personally, to me, the top thigh is the golden part of feeling together with curry. Not to compare with breast, but tender enough.

Lastly, seal our great dinner with a local delicacy, cendol, and also sago. Sadly the specialty of uncle John has been taken out from the menu. I express the disappointment, but well he must have a personal reason not to put that on the list. Overall, it is worth to put two stars to the Lima Pulo restaurant. The food will make you come here again.
