Right after attending my cousin's wedding ceremony at The Saujana Hotel, we set off for a late lunch at Gastro Cafe @ SS15 Subang Jaya. I always wanted to try this Hainanese place out since it was opened, but I just never had the chance to set foot there.
Me being a huge fan of nasi lemak, I had to order the Nasi Lemak with Halua Chicken (RM 7.80), served with sambal, ikan bilis, egg and stir-fried long beans. The halua chicken or sweet chicken was a bit over-cooked and hence, a little bit hard, but it was seasoned pretty good. Eaten together with the sweet and spicy sambal, it was just right. Plus, they were very generous with my favourite ikan bilis! The portion is a quite big and worth the price paid.
For KS, he ordered the Gastro Chicken Chop (RM 11.50) served with original Hainanese sauce and a piece of white bread to sweep up the sauce. The chicken chop was quite succulent but unfortunately, was just soaked in too much sauce, making the crispy outer layer going soggy. The sauce was a bit bland, and so, didn't make the dish stand out very much. As compared to the nasi lemak, the portion is a bit smaller but still good enough.
To end, we ordered the cendol as desserts. The portion was amazingly large and they have put enough gula melaka to sweeten the ice. The filling were pretty standard - cendol jelly and red beans. Overall, an enjoyable cooling dessert to end.
Generally, Gastro Cafe is quite a decent place for a quick simple meal at an affordable price. The service was quite good and quite accommodating to our specific requests to remove peanuts from our servings.
