Nasi Padang @ Cathay Cafe Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman

If you want to see Malay, Chinese and Indian eating together everyday where racial differences is totally never an issue then you should visit Capital Cafe located opposite Sogo Shopping Complex at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. I like the Minang Nasi Padang and love the nasi campur whenever I am there.
My choice of mixed rice with 2 different fishes (a tenggiri cutlet and a catfish), taugeh (bean spout), slightly flooded with a super yummy fish curry and of course, the lovely Indonesian sambal. It was simply appetising and delicious.
I wish I could try all the dishes and I am sure they are all delicious but... anyhow there is always another visit...drooling leh.
The crowd during lunch hours is always full to the brim, kongsi (share) table with strangers is very common and has become part of Malaysian culture in the public.
Capital Cafe have been in business since 1956 that's a long long time, the Nasi Padang stall is equally as long as the kopitiam what's a amazing salute to them!
Fried noodles such as Mee Hailam by this Ah Pek is also popular among the patrons.
A rojak and mee rebus stall at the center front of the shop. The Mamak is also enjoying good business. The gravy for the rojak seems to be plainer in colour something different from others. I would like to try it and hopefully soon. 
This is wall menu is priceless and classic, simply authentic I like the old spelling and Jawi words. Besides there are other old items like old cameras, photos in the shop taking you back to the old colonial days in Malaya.
