The Coconut Club

Having heard of the Coconut Club since early last year and wanted to try it so much (we have no  chance as it was closed during Sunday previously), and Yes! I finally did  . However, recently, The Coconut Club has expanded its wing in becoming one of the new entrants to Michelin Bib Gourmand List 2018.

Ang Siang Hill & Club Street
Not to worry about being too crowded, besides dining in the restaurant, there are still outdoor seats in front of its shop as well as the neighbouring shops.

Seating
Luckily we were there earlier, if not we could have be the one joining the long queue outside.

Look at the crowd
Don't know what to order besides the standard Nasi Lemak? Do approach the staff and check out what is their special dishes of the day.

Menu
The drinks were served shortly after our orders were made. We had cold homemade barley and Calamansi with Sourplum.

Homemade Barley - $3.50 (Cold) & Calamansi with Sourplum - $4.50
Look at the wall paper! It's featuring some houses on the beach with coconut trees. The mixture of black and white scenary on the wall paper together with the furnishing gives a cosy and modern feel to the place.

And right at this small corner beside the cashier, you will get to see their staff busying with preparing the beverages.

Sambal Sotong was fresh and chewy. Love the bite on the the rings, not too rubbery. However, it gets more and more fiery in taste after a few mouthful of the Sambal Coated Sotong. For those who cannot take too much spice may want to ask for less spiciness.

Sambal Sotong - $13.80
Their standard Nasi Lemak includes coconut rice, fried Ikan Billis, fried egg, peanuts, cucumber, Sambal Chilli and Ayam Goreng (Fried Chicken). If you prefer other meat, you can trade it for Otah or Fish instead. Starring item on the plate of nasi lemak will be this crispy Ayam Goreng Berempah, its very fragrant and juicy. I believe the use of ingredients like lemongrass, galangal and ginger gave a good punch in its marinate, elevating the taste of the usual fried chicken.

On other plate of Nasi Lemak, I have swapping the deliciously fried chicken leg for a fish. Likewise it was deep fried to crispines, paired with a bowl of kicap manis sauce, ideal for dipping the fish meat in. Tasty! However, if you prefer a fuss free meal, Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng will be a better choice as there are tiny fish bones. On the other hand fried fish can be order separately as a side base on the market rate.

They are also able to cater dining for bigger group as there is a long table  in the middle of the restaurant.

Dining
Walking all the way straight into the restaurant, you will get to see the kitchen and the process of preparing food.

Preparation Counter
The team is well organised, each with dedicated duties.

Serving the plates
Overall, in terms of food taste, I will still prefer the usual popular nasi lemak in the neighborhood
