Lampu Neon Cafe @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

It's been a while since I last visited Lampu Neon Cafe. I very much enjoyed the food the last trip here which was sometime in February 2015. Since it has been two long years,  we decided to visit them this evening. This restaurant is located along Jalan Ketoyong, just beside Elite Futsal. For those who are not familiar, come along Jalan Ketoyong until you see the KTM Station on your left. Shortly ahead, you would see a row of shops on your right and there would be a sign which reads 'Elite Futsal'. The moment you turn in, you would be able to sight this restaurant on your right.

Love The Design

Clean And Tidy

The place is simple, a no frills restaurant, nevertheless it was very clean and tidy. The restaurant had a funky look to it and it seemed like a great place to chill out with friends. Previously they used to provide WiFi as well but it seems that it's out of order today.

When we arrived, it was approximately 7.00 pm and the place was quite quiet, with just another table being occupied. But as time passed, customers started arriving in large numbers. Being a weekday, this flow of customers was quite impressive. The pricing of both Western and Local dishes seemed very reasonable and it seems that they have added more dishes and drinks to their menu. Specifically, their Western dishes were very reasonably priced, if not cheap. This must also be one of the reasons why customers' keep flocking here. As far as the customer service goes, there's nothing much to say. The waiters had to be called to attend to us and there wasn't much of an interaction like the previous time. Anyway, we were here for the food and hope that quality remains the same. Customer service is a bonus if it's good and sadly it wasn't this time around. 

Grilled Chicken Chop with Black Pepper Sauce @ RM 10.00
The Grilled Chicken Chop comes in two options, either Black Pepper Sauce or Mushroom Sauce. I went for their Black Pepper Sauce and this selection is done at the time of order. Wonderfully marinated Chicken, being grilled and served on a sizzling hot plate with Fries and some Black Pepper sauce. The portion was not too huge and commensurates the price. I think this is great. Some places charge an exorbitant rate and serve a humongous piece which is too much for a single person. This was just about the right size. The marinated chicken was grilled and it was perfectly done. Not overdone or under cooked, it was simply perfect. I wonder what they had used to marinate the chicken as it was very delicious. The last time I was here, I did mention that the Black Pepper Sauce would have been better if only it was thicker and bolder and true enough, they did listen. What was served this evening was simply marvelous. I loved the batter as it was so good.  The Fries too were nicely done and fried to a golden brown perfection. Overall, an excellent dish. I would rate this at 9/10 . 

Nasi Goreng Sardin @ RM 5.00
Their Nasi Goreng Sardin was simply out of this world! One of the best Malay version Fried Rice that I have tasted. The rice was spicy, came with lots of sardine chunks and it was such a treat to the taste buds. For RM 5.00 , the portion was huge. Absolutely loved this and I would give this a 10/10. 

Dimmu Chicken Burger @ RM 6.00
For those who are tired of having the usual Ramly Burger, this is definitely a good alternative. This comes in a choice of either Chicken or Beef. Do note that these are the common processed Burgers that we get and not those minced meat patties. This preparation comes in a soft bun, served with some cheese in the burger and topped with Black Pepper sauce and some Fries which have been sprinkled with some spicy powder. The taste of the Burger mixed with the Black Pepper batter was truly an electrifying experience and would nail a burger lover just at the right spot. For me, this was one to cherish as it was truly tasty! Another excellent preparation that deserves a 9/10 rating.  

Spicy Chicken Wings @ RM 8.00
These Fried Chicken Wings was another marvelous preparation. The wings were marinated and deep fried to perfection. The marination was so good that none of us dipped it into the sauce. The wings too were huge chunks and they were priced at a very reasonable RM 8.00 for five. A fantastic dish and I would give this a 9/10 as well. 

On the whole, our dining experience tonight was a memorable one (except for the shabby customer service). All of us enjoyed the food along  with the wallet friendly prices. I am truly glad that the food quality had not dropped even a bit over the years and hope that it continues to remain so in the years to come. Definitely a place that I would recommend!
