Day 79: Wondermama Part 2
Had lunch with my family at Wondermama today and tried a couple of new dishes there. Told you I would be back. Tried an old instant favourite which was the Spicy Salmon Mini Naan Pizza (RM17.90). My opinion on it remain the same. It is still amazing. Told you I would come back just for this dish again and again. If you want to read more on it, you can read it on my previous post on Wondermama.
Another thing we gave another try was the Seafood Tom Yam Fried Rice (RM17.90) and unfortunately, our opinion on it stayed the same. The rice lack Tom Yam flavour despite the name. It was too subtle and almost barely there. The amount of anchovies in the rice over powered the flavour and made it somewhat taste like Nasi Goreng Kampong.
A new try this visit was one of their famous Nasi Lemak. Nasi Lemak covered almost a whole page of their menu. So we assumed it would be a good one. However, the generous portion of the dish couldn’t not hide the fact that everything was just average about the Nasi Lemak 4.0 (RM18.90). There was nothing special to it. The rendang tasted like Chicken Kurma, the rice was not fluffy rather too sticky. However, the highlight of the whole plate got to be the Sambal Petai Udang. The sambal was a balanced between sweet and spicy, and they were not shy with their petai. It added a strong taste to the sambal and I am a petai lover so it was bloody amazing to me.
I ordered the Beef Burger (RM17.90) and was very much disappointed. When I saw the menu, I was taken aback when I saw that they were putting tartar sauce with their beef burgers. I had to give it a try to see if I’m missing out on anything, maybe beef taste amazing with tartar sauce. Well, beef and tartar sauce are not meant to be together. The whole flavour did not mash up well at all. The beef patty was probably overworked and overcooked. It was tough and tasteless. The salad it came with was a bit strange. The dressing tasted like some kind of chutney and it was strong. Did not fancy that at all. The fries were good and I enjoyed dipping it in the spicy mayonnaise and garlic sauce that they had on the table.
I had soursop guava juice to drink and thoroughly enjoyed it. The soursop juice was fresh and had bits in it which I love and they added a drop of guava cordial I suppose to add the “guava” in the juice. It was not too sweet and it was refreshing.
My parents liked the restaurant for something that serves modern malaysian food. It is overall a good place to try. We’ll probably will just come back for the Spicy Salmon Mini Naan Pizza when we crave for it. Trust me, we do. It is that good. What’s your favourite dish from Wondermama?
