Indian Food Stall in Restoran Uli @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

With the closure of Hari's Food Stall after his sudden death, I felt that Tanjung Malim had lost it's only Indian stall where we used to get some lovely home cooked dishes for dinner and thankfully, a new stall had opened up not too far from where his stall was. This one is located inside Restoran Uli which is in Taman Intan Setia, Tanjung Malim. 

The Restaurant Along Jalan Intan Setia 1

Typically A Chinese Restaurant With One Indian Stall At The Entrance

The First Stall At The Far Right Is The Indian Stall
The ambiance is just like any other Chinese coffee shop or restaurant. This restaurant is also a rather new one, I think that they have been around for about 9 months now and I shall be doing a separate blog entry on this Chinese restaurant soon. This Indian stall is located right at the entrance and it would be impossible to miss them unless they are closed for the day. They are usually open daily unless something comes up, then they would take a day off. If they do so, there would usually be a sign at the stall informing customers. On weekdays, they operate from 1500 - 2200 and on weekends, from 1300 - 2200. It is just a mother and daughter kind of a setup. Not too many dishes and a little of each. I tried all their dishes and am posting them here in this blog entry. 

Pal Appam @ RM 1.00 each
Kudos to these guy's for having Pal Appam available in this stall as we have never had this in the history of this town and for the first time, I am so glad that we finally have it now. The Pal Appam is about the standard size and it's priced at RM 1.00 each which I think is a very reasonable price. Fluffy in the center and crispy on the sides, just like the way it should be. I would give this a 8/10. 

Fried Kuey Teow @ (RM 2.00) Plus Fried Chicken @ RM 2.00 each
For the portion, I felt that the Fried Kuey Teow was very reasonably priced. This same portion would be priced at least RM 3.00 in other similar stalls. Do note that this is not a vegetarian preparation as they add egg, chicken and some anchovies in the Kuey Teow. Taste wise, it is on the spicy side which would be suitable for Indians. If I remember correctly as it has been years, my Grandmother used to prepare this very much the same way as well. As for this preparation, I would give it a 8/10.

Fried Chicken Wings
Their Fried Chicken Wings was just okay. As we know, they open the stall at 3 pm and in order to do that, they would have fried this by 1 pm the latest and so, it wasn't really that fresh and crispy. It would have tasted great if only it was fried on site but sadly, they do not have such facilities and manpower to do those here. Even the stall area is very small and is just good to prepare the other items like Tosai, Chapati and Appam. Having been not too satisfied with this, I would give it a 5/10 only. 

Chapati @ RM 1.00 each with Anchovies Sambal
Their Chapati was really good. It is what we call 'Veettu Chapathi' i.e. Homemade Chapati. It was slightly smaller but much thicker, softer and made with plain Atta Flour. Even without adding any margarine, it tasted so good. As for their curries, they have Sambar, Chicken Curry and the above Anchovies Sambal daily. As for the Chapati, I would rate this at 9/10 and the Anchovies Sambal, that deserves another 9/10 as well. 

Nasi Lemak @ RM 2.50 per plate
Their Nasi Lemak was really good. The rice was fragrant and had a strong gingery taste, the Anchovies Sambal was awesome, it came with an omelette, some peanuts and sliced cucumber and all this for just RM 2.50 . The Sambal was mildly spicy and the portion of rice was huge. Really good stuff and I would rate this at 9/10. 

Tosai @ RM 1.00 each with Chicken Curry
Again, this was the Veettu Tosai kind of preparation. A little smaller, thicker and it was very good. I totally enjoyed the usage of gingerly oil to make this Tosai, one that we don't come across quite often. As for the Tosai, I would give it a 10/10. The Chicken Curry was good too but would have been better if it was spicy. This I would rate it at 8/10. 

Fried Mee Hoon @ RM 2.00
Just like the earlier Fried Kuey Teow, this Fried Mee Hoon too was delicious. This too came with some chicken bits, sliced Fish Cake and Fish Balls. For the price, the portions were huge. A little spicy but surely delicious and deserves a rating of 8/10. Besides this, they also have Fried Mee as well. 

Overall, the food was good, authentic homemade tastes and very reasonable prices. In fact, my family have become a regular here as we really enjoy the taste and the hospitality as well. So for those looking for a good place to have a simple South Indian meal, this would definitely be an ideal place.
