I met my partner, Kim the Koolman (he made that up, not me!) after work on Friday for a spot of light retail therapy (I got new sunnies, ILU dj's sale) and then some dinner. KK is rubbish at making serious decisions like where we should eat, so I decided on Satay Club in Charlotte street. Fast service, delicious food, cheap price.
Since it was fairly early evening, we didn't bother with starters, but if you do, the satay is awesome! Diving right in to the mains, KK chose the duck special dry noodles (another firm fav of mine) and I ordered my laksa 'medium' having been ballsy enough to order it 'hot' in the past and barely surviving to tell the tail. They let you choose the noodles for your laksa and I opted for rice vermicelli.
Food arrived about 5 mins later along with a pot of tea we also ordered. IDK what sort of tea it is, but I become obsessed with looking in the teapot every time we go there. It has these flowers in it! Maybe next time I'll ask.
My laksa was, as always, very delicious! Lots of plumb juicy duck with crispy skin and NO BONES. My only complaint would be that it wasn't very spicy, but I choose less spicy over too spicy.
KK's dry noodles were also quite delicious (I snaffled some). He is a big eater but couldn't finish them off. He said they were a bit oily this time which he didn't really like.
2 meals and tea for two cost something ridiculous like $24. Told you it's cheap! Serves are huge and food is quite authentic. We followed dinner with a Japanese cupcake from my fav Japanese bakery 2-in-1 at Post Office Square (pre purchased before dinner). So fluffy and delicious!! The cake had a slight orange flavour and a fluffy creme pattisiere filling. Yum!
