Sambal Hijau @ Kampong Sg. Penchala, Kuala Lumpur

What a fabulous place we discovered today at Kampong Sg. Penchala where you could get a wide variety of Indon-Malay foods and all the foods look so delicious and irresistible.
Yes! @ Restoran Sambal Hijau named after their popular green sambal.

We were prepared for trouble at the restaurant as lunch hour is always packed with hungry people and by 2.30pm most of the popular dishes would have almost all gone. We were there early just passed noon, got a table for 7 person and we were gamed for a wonderful Malay foods venture.

Fresh Ulam are raw plants or veggie eaten with rice and of course best eaten with sambal belacan.

The powerful green sambal is so nice that you could probably have it as a simple lunch with a mere plate of plain rice. Maybe it is a good idea to do it often especially during this time of economy crisis….

This sauce of soya based for the grilled fish.

Another commonly seen sambal belacan here.

Another power packed sambal for the grill....

Grilled Shad (Ikan Terubuk) is sweet but full of tiny bones. Just be careful and enjoy the wonderful taste of Terubuk, one fish that is very popular in Sarawak.

Grilled Mackerel with 2 kinds of sauce for you to fuse it and tickle your taste buds.

Boon loves the beef rendang.......

At this corner is the grill corner for Ikan Bakar (grilled fish).

The wide variety of food at the stall could confuse you as what to try. Everything looks so delicious!

Maybe try here and here……..and here….

The crowd at peak hour.
Colourful dessert ready and always available on the table.

It is quite easy to get there, use the Sprint Highway from LDP, before reaching the tunnel and at a traffic light junction, you turn left (right is going to Taman Tun Dr Ismail). You will reach another traffic junction where you can see the restaurant just next to a prominent mosque.
A place which is going to be popular soon, the pricing is still very reasonable.....Go check it out!!!

recently i parked behind the shop and passed by the kitchen. oh my god, ever since that shocking day, i stopped going there.

don't just take my word, the next time you're there take a peep into the dark and filthy kitchen and you won't step into that place again. it's simply a breeding ground for all things nasty...
