Have you ever pass by a restaurant and noticed that it is empty, or only has a few customers? The first thing that came through your mind must be "maybe the food is not great or good enough", right? Yeah, it happens to all of us.
Recently, I took my family out for dinner at Plaza 333, about 20 minutes from KK City or about 10 minutes from Donggongon Town. I purposely looked for this particular restaurant that I always passed by, but never stopped there to dine. The restaurant is called "Ah Ma Nasi Lemak".
When we arrived, there is only one table occupied with customers, and the rest are empty. As soon as we were seated, the waiter came to our table and show us the menu. I was surprised, I didn't expect that they serves a lot of menus besides Nasi Lemak as the name of the restaurant specified.
There are so many choices of foods and drinks, and I even changed my order once as I can't make up my mind. At first I was thinking about having Bak Kut Teh, but then I opted for the Penang Prawn Mee. It was really good.
My wife chose to have the Penang Chao Kuey Teow which was delicious too, according to her.
And my daughter chose to have their signature dish, "Dry Ah Ma Pan Mian". I manage to taste it, and it was really good.
Lastly, our drinks. I ordered Iced Lemon Tea, my wife ordered the Iced Barley, and my daughter chose the Iced Tea Special. It was really refreshing. I love every sip of my Lemon Tea.
The restaurant as you can see from the picture below are empty. Only my wife and daughter is in the picture, even the owner is hiding behind the counter, and the waitress cleaning up the table of a customer who has just left.
I feel sorry with this restaurant. The food and drinks is great with such a reasonable price. But I am so surprise that not many people came to dine there.
For you guys who want to check out this underrated restaurant, please do, and maybe you guys have a clue on why it has such a bad business. There are two restaurants beside it, and it seems that these other two restaurant are doing well.
Till today, I'm still wondering what's the restaurant handicaps are
