I went to Cinta Malaysdian with two friends, between the three of us we ordered the Beef Rendang, Butter Prawns, Mee Goreng, Sambal Eggplant and Roti. It turned out to be way too much but I’m glad I got to try everything as it was all delicious. The Butter Prawns and Eggplant Sambal were stand outs for me. The prawns were fresh and were not smothered in batter, just a light crispy coating and tasty sweet sauce. I’ve never really been a big fan of eggplant but the Sambal Eggplant has changed my mind. The Beef Rendang was good but not exceptional, the curry had great authentic flavours and spices but the beef was a bit tough and maybe needed to be cooked longer or slower. The Mee Goreng was good, not too greasy with a good amount and range of veges and meat. The Roti was served with a chicken curry and was very nice. I was intrigued by their desserts but was too full and will try the sago with fresh mango next time. I’m glad I have found Cinta and I feel it will become one of my regulars.
