How is your food hunt around Subang Area for Kopitiam after closure of Asia Café, hence come out with Top 8 food in Rock Café after recent discovery. Personally after the closure, it not a good experience for my end, and ended up at Uptown Damanara Hokkien Mee. this place was introduce by my friend there is this food court that they always visit especially for football matches. You will be surprise on the amount of crowd. Rock Café sure is not one of a hiddem gem but its an good old discovery. .
Friend explain to me on a few fact about this Café.
- Open 24 hours. Like Mamak.
- With selection of more than 30 types of food. NONE Repetitive.
- A great combination of Halal and non Halal food that makes is a cool 1 Malaysia foodcourt.
- For some of the folks that are concern, there is some assurance for you reduce your worry. They have sperate cutleries and washing area through colour separation for utensils and plates.
- One of the manager came from hotel industry hence the strict separation cutleries and washing area.
- They have customer reward day. At times you can get Milo Ais for as low as RM 1.
- Have football match with some interesting event over big games. Do check out their FB.
- Best of all, they have lost and found department. If you lost anything here, do check out at their main cashier counter. Chances of you finding back, could be 50%-50%.
- Safety at night? Worry free as they work closely with Police to have Police peronda every 1 hour.
The Café have indoor and outdoor area. Of course outdoor is more chilling in the evening. Tried a few items in this food court, and this is my personal pick food stalls if you are here.
NO.1 Ayam Bakar – Jakarta. I have always miss my Indonesian food and this stall do give you one of the best for coffee shop quality. It is very near to the street food that I have miss in Jakarta Pusat.
Chicken is maritated to perfection, grill till it is not too dry, yet juicy inside out and you can see the shinning glaze of marination on the skin. To eat along with their Nasi Bakar is a perfect pair. Eat along with sambal with hit you with the heat and spiciness that you need.
Just a simple awesome dish that you should not miss if you are here.
No.2 Uncle huat Fried Rice
Classic food meet classic place. One of the most busy stall in this area is Uncle Huat Fried Rice. To do a fried rice sounds easy but it was never easy. Rice fried till very fragrant and love the texture of pieces with wok hei and dry. Top with a “hor pau tan” and soy soauce is the best combination that you could ask for. Best of all, can add char siew and prawns. Favourite! Do prepare to wait 45 minutes to 1 hour for this Fried Rice.
No.3 Uncle Tan’s Portuguese Grilled Fish
One of the best stall from Asia Café is Uncle Tan’s had move to Rock Café. Famous for their fresh seafood as uncle Tan himself head over to Pulau Ketam every morning. Choosing the best fresh ingredients to be serve at his stall. You can choose a few cooking style.
No.4 – Mushroom King
Was told that this is the original founder of fried mushroom that started in kopitiam before flourish and boom into Pasar Malam and kopitiam. Using their own special recipe for their buttered fried mushroom. Something simple that I like and best to go with beer. Price is very reasonable.
No.5 Grannys Nyonya Kitchen
If you miss your Melaka nyonya style food, then this is one of the stall that you can pay a visit. Curry is creamy thick and curry spices fragrant did not overpower it. Chicken is is cook nicely where it is still soft and juicy. Sambal brings you slight sweet spiciness to compliments it.
No.6. Western food Corner.
I have been looking out for Kopitiam western food and this stall turns out to be not too bad. Hence falls into my no.7 top choices.
No.7. Japanese Corner.
As for Café quality, this Japanese chicken Don is not too bad a tall. Generous portion of fried chicken, top with an egg and their special sauce is indeed simple and no complains.
No. 8. Indo Mee Spicy.
If I do not know what to eat, the easiest option is to go for Indo MEe and this version is Indo Mee Deli Hell Spicy. Not as spicy as it mention as it is quite alright for me.
Going for a value for money meal, then this Grilled Chicken with Arabic Pita (with an option to change pita to nasi Briyani). With the portion and amount that you are paying, it is in deed value for money. My version of eating is to tear my chicken into pieces and of course do remember to squeeze the lime onto it. Tear, the pita bread, add on some chicken and may noise then, bon apetite.
Other items that you can try is : TAndori Chicken, Roti Canai Burger, Japanese Curry Chicken Rice, Classic China pull noodle (available dry or soup) and if you love strong peppercorn taste, you will love it.
For happy hour, they do have special promotion for 1 bucket of Sommersby with 4 bottles @ RM 46 and Carlsberg Smooth Draught @ RM 56 with 3 bottles (Large)
Certainly a nice place for simple food and value for money.
Disclaimer – I have visited during their lunch time and some stalls only operate in the afternoon.
