Kesom Cafe looked a lot more inviting a year ago. Not sure what happened but the restaurant doesn’t look even remotely like what other bloggers’ photos depicted.
Now it feels more like a canteen and the atmosphere is rather gloomy. With that out of the way, the food’s great and that’s what really matters anyway.
Here’s the main reason why I felt like eating at a canteen: food is prepared ahead and stored in a warmer. After picking your rice may it be nasi kukus, kerabu or dagang, you can choose from a handful of side dishes to complete the meal. Self service too.
SL had the meal deal which consisted of Nasi Kerabu with Ayam Goreng Berempah and a cup of Serai Pandan @ RM13.50 which is a saving of RM3.
The fried chicken and rich coconut sauce are two things that really stood out. Everything else tasted fresh and more importantly homemade from scratch, nothing is brought in.
My Nasi Dagang with Gulai Ikan Raja Berangkat @ RM13 was equally delicious. The firm yet fluffy texture of the rice is faultless while the fish lives up to its name – fit for a king. I also had the A.P.A (Apa Pun Ada) drink @ RM3.50 but I found the taste a tad watered down. Refill is only 50 cents though.
