Restaurant 1919

A very interesting restaurant located in the city center... I've never actually noticed this place before! Philippines eggplant fries is apparently quite famous. Though I don't think there's much to shout about - it's just deep fried egg plant coated with flour and topped with Thai sweet chilli sauce. I think the sauce should be served separately.. Not everyone enjoys sweet chilli sauce!

 Stir-fry four angled bean and petai with special sauce - very interesting "special sauce", it was the sauce that made the vegetable flavourful. It's the typical Malay/Nyonya style.

 Cencaluk sotong - very appetising and flavourful! It goes really well with rice!

 Rendang mutton was not really a big hit for me though. You know the bad smell that is quite common when it comes to lamb meat - I can't take it at all. It's quite difficult to get good rendang mutton... It's that smell!!

Steamed fish - well just steamed fish. As long as it is fresh, the dish is heaven!

Overall experience is quite good. I was told that their original shop is in Ipoh and this is the KL branch. There's no specific type of cuisine, they serve South East Asia flavours with a mixture of everything, Nyonya, Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesia, Philippines, and so on. It is really a good concept because it would attract people with different preferences. It is a halal restaurant, which widens the market especially in Malaysia. I didn't enjoy all of the dishes but I wouldn't hesitate to go back again for round 2 :)

If you're up for dinner, I would suggest to make a reservation to avoid disappointment!

P/S: I think to name a restaurant as 1919 is really weird!
