To facilitate things, a member of the serve staff took beverage orders along the line. The containers offered Chicken Satay, Chicken Wings, Haines Chicken (Kosher), Dry Curry Chicken (Kosher), Calamari, Mee/Siam, Char way teuw, Samba Dana, House Fried Rice and Bubar Cha Cha.
The full menu will offer much more, items like Nasi Lemak, Curry Nooodle Soup, Roti Canal, Fish Ball Noodle Soup and Dry Curry Crab. The Bubble tea drinks are served with straws about ¼ inch in diameter.
According to the brief menu, Malaysian cuisine reflects the multi-cultural country with historical English, Portuguese and Dutch influences.
