Sedap Restaurant

Pin It!
There was once a Malaysian restaurant in Notting hill, once that was popular amongst the Singaporen/Malaysian crowd in London. One that served authentic food and a good range of kueh. It was called Nyonya. It closed quite suddenly as my friends and I just thought that they were undergoing renovations. No one seems to know where they moved to.

Fast forward to 2011, we were planning to go on the Alternative London Tour, one I would recommend to everyone who wants to see another side of London. Okie, enough with the self promotion already! :P The walking tour was going to end in the Old Street area and so I went about looking for somewhere nearby we could have dinner in. Lo and behold!! Sedap which means delicious, came up and a friend once said that it's pretty good so I thought, why not? Let's give it a go!

So off we went in search of the restaurant located about a 5 mins walk from Old Street tube station. A small restaurant that can take about 25 covers. 

We started off with a teh tarik(sweet pulled tea) that had just the right amount of condensed milk but too bad it didn't have that foamy top that usually comes with one. After pondering over the menu,  we finally decided on Nasi Lemak and the Belacan(Shrimp Paste) Chicken.

Belacan Chicken
The belacan chicken smelt so good as it was brought to the table piping hot!!! When i bit into it, it was like oohh lala!!! Oh so crunchy, sweetish on the outside, so succulent and moist on the inside! Mmmmmmmm........This is definitely one dish that I'll order when I dine here, a dish that makes me smile, a plate of deep fried goodness.....

Nasi Lemak - Coconut Rice with Chicken Curry, Fried Fish and peanuts
The curry chicken was well flavoured and not too spicy while the coconut rice was very fragrant but it was a tad too soft for my liking. 

2 kinds of kueh are sold here every day but we were so stuffed that we couldn't eat any so we had to buy some to have at home. However, they didn't survive too well on the journey back home so no pictures today. However, they were fresh and delish!!

I also heard that they do a smashing Char Kway Tiao(Stir-fried thick rice noodles) too so that's next on the list!! That together with the awesome belacan chicken once again!
